[Ed. – However, the judge did cut the claimed amount from Trump’s legal team by 25%.]

Stephanie Clifford, the adult-movie star professionally known as Stormy Daniels, was ordered to pay $293,000 in attorney fees and sanctions to Donald Trump after she unsuccessfully sued the president for defamation.

A federal judge in Los Angeles on Tuesday cut the fees Trump had requested by 25 percent and added $1,000 in sanctions against Clifford. Trump’s lawyer had asked for as much as an additional $389,000 as a deterrence. …
