A New York arbitrator awarded greater than $1.3 million to former Trump White Home adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman, ordering former President Donald Trump’s marketing campaign to pay for her prices and authorized charges from a lawsuit Trump had introduced towards her.
Trump had taken motion towards Manigault Newman, claiming that her 2018 guide, “Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House,” violated a non-disclosure and non-disparagement settlement she had signed. The arbitrator within the case decided the agreements have been unenforceable beneath New York regulation and granted her request for abstract judgment, leaving the 2 sides to quibble over authorized bills.

“Respondent is awarded the sum of $1,293,568.75 for attorney’s fees and $17,304.73 for costs, for a total award of $1,310,873.48,” arbitrator T. Andrew Brown wrote.
Manigault Newman’s lawyer John Phillips mentioned in a press release to the Washington Post that he hopes the award, which was “the largest known attorney fee award against a Political Campaign or President we can find,” would “send a message that weaponized litigation will not be tolerated and empower other lawyers to stand up and fight for the whistleblower and vocal critic against the oppressive machine.”
Phillips mentioned a part of the cash can be donated “to groups who stand up to the suppression of speech.”
Manigault Newman signed an NDA when she joined Trump’s marketing campaign in 2016. The 2 first grew to become linked in when she was a contestant on the primary season of Trump’s tv present, “The Apprentice,” which aired in 2004. She finally went on to be an adviser within the Trump White Home earlier than being fired lower than a yr into Trump’s presidency.
