In recent weeks, it has become clear that Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti is going to run for president as a Democrat in 2020. He thinks he has some sort of moral high ground over Trump, but according to a new story about a woman who used to work for him, he has his own skeletons to deal with.
The Daily Caller reports:
EXCLUSIVE: SEX DISCRIMINATION VICTIM OWED MONEY BY MICHAEL AVENATTI’S COMPANY YET TO RECEIVE A CENT
Two companies controlled by Michael Avenatti have yet to pay the over $126,000 owed to a victim of sex discrimination case despite orders from a Washington state court, the victim’s lawyer told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Elizabeth Eno, a top-performing manager at Tully’s Coffee chain, was fired in July 2016 because she was pregnant, the court ruled last year, awarding her $120,000 from Tully’s two parent companies at the time: Global Baristas LLC and Global Baristas US, LLC.
But Eno has yet to see a single cent from the award, her attorney told TheDCNF on Thursday.
State records show that Global Baristas US, LLC is controlled by the similarly named Global Baristas LLC, which in turn is controlled by Avenatti, the lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels.
Avenatti claimed to know nothing about the money his companies apparently owe Eno. “I have no idea. I had nothing to do with the case,” Avenatti told TheDCNF on Thursday.
It wil be very interesting to see if the other Democrats running in 2020 exploit this weakness during the primary process.
