    According to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, the former lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels, Michael Avenatti will be charged for allegedly trying to extort Nike for $15-$25 million.

    Avenatti allegedly tried to extort the massive sports apparel company “by threatening to use his ability to garner publicity to inflict substantial financial and reputational harm on the company if his demands were not met,” prosecutors alleged.

    The counts against him include conspiracy to transmit interstate communications with intent to extort, conspiracy to commit extortion and more.

    Developing story…

    Q - What do you call Avenatti at the bottom of the ocean?

    According to one article, Aventi claimed Nike was involved in a major basketball scam of some type and he could prove it. I hope he's right about that. Nothing I would like better than watching Nike on the skewer. But where Avenati's going he'll never have the opportunity to prove the case.

    Don’t know why you’d think that seeing how he’s been nothing but a liar.
