A judge affirmed his order Friday to evict Michael Avenatti’s law firm from a California office building for skipping out on over $213,000 in rent over four months.
Judge Robert J. Moss affirmed his October 22 order in Orange County Superior Court that Avenatti and his staff leave their ocean-view suite in a Newport Beach office building by Monday, despite a last-ditch effort by the attorney to block the eviction ruling. The firm’s landlord, the Irvine Co., sued Avenatti’s law firm, Eagan Avenatti, for eviction for dodging the rent payments.
This is the latest setback for the lawyer best-known for representing porn star Stormy Daniels. He also was arrested for an alleged domestic violence dispute in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
