[Ed. – Alleged non-payment of rent. For months. Brief reprieve and no-shows for his court dates in the interim.]
Avenatti — who was busted earlier this week in LA on domestic violence allegations — now needs to move out of his ocean-view suite in a Newport Beach office building after Orange County Superior Court Judge Robert J. Moss affirmed an October order that the attorney and his staff vacate the premises, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Avenatti’s longtime firm, Eagan Avenatti, had skipped four months of rent payments — totaling $213,254 — prompting the landlord, Irvine Co., to sue for eviction.
The landlord won the case last month, during a trial that Avenatti skipped, according to the report. Then, the local sheriff’s office posted a notice demanding that the firm vacate by early on Nov. 1.
