BREAKING: Trump Sues Michael Cohen for $500 Million
According to a source familiar with Trump’s legal team, the lawsuit against Cohen is unrelated to the Manhattan DA’s case
Former US President Donald Trump has filed a $500 million lawsuit against his former lawyer Michael Cohen. According to a source familiar with Trump’s legal team, the lawsuit against Cohen is unrelated to the Manhattan DA’s case.
Trump is seeking damages from Michael Cohen in a trial for compensatory, incidental, actual, and punitive losses.
The lawsuit states, “This is an action arising from [Cohen’s] multiple breaches of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment, conversion and breaches of contract by virtue of [Cohen’s] past service as [Trump’s] employee and attorney.”
Fox News reported:
The lawsuit alleges Cohen breached his attorney-client relationship by “spreading falsehoods” about Trump that were “likely to be embarrassing or detrimental, and partook in other misconduct,” while also breaching contractual terms of a confidentiality agreement he signed as a condition of employment with Trump.
The lawsuit alleges Cohen spread falsehoods about Trump “with malicious intent and to wholly self-serving ends.”
