Michael Avenatti to represent himself during trial vs Stormy Daniels
Attorney Mike Chase discusses the trial between Michael Avenatti and Stormy Daniels on ‘Kennedy.’
Michael Avenatti, the disgraced attorney who is representing himself on trial for allegedly stealing nearly $300,000 from adult film actress Stormy Daniels, rested his case on Tuesday without calling any witnesses to the stand.
Avenatti had originally indicated that he might testify in his own defense, but announced Tuesday that he had chosen not to because prosecutors had not proven their case. The 50-year-old California lawyer announced his decision in Manhattan federal court after telling Judge Jesse M. Furman that he had no witnesses in court who were ready to testify.
