Trump Ordered to Pay Omarosa $1.3 Million

Last year Donald Trump lost his lawsuit against Omarosa Manigault after he tried to sue her for violating the non-disclosure agreement she signed after writing an unflattering book about her time in the Trump White House [click here if you missed that]. 

Now the Trump campaign has been ordered to pay Omarosa's legal fees...

An arbitrator ordered Donald Trump’s presidential campaign to pay $1.3 million in legal fees to Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former “Apprentice” star whom the campaign unsuccessfully sued over a book about her tenure as a White House advisor, her lawyer said Wednesday.
The award comes nearly seven months after the arbitrator ruled in Manigault Newman’s favor that a confidentiality agreement she signed while working on Trump’s 2016 campaign was invalid under New York law.
The campaign in 2018 had filed a complaint with the American Arbitration Association in New York against her claiming that she violated that nondisclosure agreement with a scathing tell-all book titled “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.”
