Legal analysis

Adult film star Stormy Daniels filed a civil action against Donald Trump this week. In it, she wants a California court to declare that the nondisclosure agreement between them is not valid because Trump, under the alleged pseudonym of “DD,” never actually signed it. The action comes in response to a restraining order, sought and obtained in late February, that precludes Daniels from violating the terms of the original agreement.

According to the complaint filed Tuesday, Daniels had an intimate relationship with Trump between 2006 and 2007. Years later, during Trump’s presidential campaign, she says he and his attorney Michael Cohen “aggressively sought to silence” Daniels, who says she was pressured into signing a nondisclosure agreement and that she was paid $130,000 for her silence.
