CALIFORNIA — Porn lawyer, Michael Avenatti has once again found himself on the losing end of a Judge’s ruling. Previously his former law firm was ordered to pay $10 million dollars to attorney Jason Frank. Today, Judge Dennis Landin ordered Avenatti to personally cough up $4.85 million dollars to Frank. Jason Frank accused Avenatti’s former law firm of screwing him out of money. According to Yahoo.com,
“Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Dennis Landin ordered the payout by Avenatti because he had personally guaranteed a settlement with attorney Jason Frank. Frank alleged that Avenatti’s firm misstated its profits and that he was owed millions of dollars.”
Also according to Yahoo.com,
“Frank had worked at Avenatti’s former firm under an independent contractor agreement and was supposed to collect 25 percent of its annual profits, along with 20 percent of fees his clients paid, court documents say.
“The action Monday comes after a U.S. bankruptcy court judge ordered Avenatti’s former firm to pay $10 million to Frank in May. The $4.85 million for which Avenatti is now personally liable is in addition to that judgment.”
Of course, Avenatti blames Frank and say he owes “him and the firm $12 million.” What joke! This is not the first ruling that Avenatti has lost. Via Conservative Humor Gone Awry.Com,
“Attorney Michael Avenatti who is famous for representing porn star, Stormy Daniels found himself on the losing end of a judgment against his law firm. It seems that Avenatti has a problem with keeping his promises. Avenatti was supposed to pay a former colleague $2 million dollars, but failed, and a judgment of $10 million was lobbied against his firm. U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge, Catherine Bauer, according to The Los Angeles Times,
“ordered the Eagan Avenatti law firm to pay the $10 million to Jason Frank, a lawyer who used to work at the Newport Beach firm.
“At this point, that’s what’s appropriate,” Bauer said at a brief hearing. To settle his law firm’s bankruptcy, Avenatti had personally guaranteed that the $2 million would be paid to Frank last week, but both he and his firm failed to turn over the money.
“At the hearing, the U.S. Justice Department revealed that Avenatti has also defaulted on just over $440,000 in back taxes, penalties and interest that he had personally promised to pay the Internal Revenue Service under another bankruptcy settlement for his law firm.
“Assistant U.S. Atty. Najah Shariff told the judge that the federal government would soon file a motion demanding payment. Under the Jan. 30 bankruptcy settlement, Avenatti agreed to pay the IRS $2.4 million in back taxes, penalties and interest owed by the firm, court records show.”
The news got worse from there as Avenatti’s day went by. Another Judge, according to the Washington Examiner.com,
“after that ruling from a California judge, another judge ruled that Avenatti and his staff must be evicted from their suite office at Fashion Island mall after they missed four months worth of rent payments.”
Several Twitter users caught wind of Avenatti’s troubles and had no problem rubbing salt into the wounds like user Steve who tweeted,

Oooops! Sorry, ‘bout that, Judge. I was too caught up in my rising popularity to remember this former counselor. How much you say? Would a lap dance by Stormy change your mind? No? But, wait, I’m going to be President some day! Still, no? Wait…
