Judge Sets Friday Hearing in Stormy Daniels Case

A federal judge in Los Angeles has set a hearing to determine whether there should be a stay in the case of a porn actress who claims she had sex with President Donald Trump.

U.S. District Judge James Otero’s order schedules a hearing for Friday morning.

Stormy Daniels has been seeking to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement she signed days before the 2016 presidential election so she can discuss the alleged relationship, which Trump denies.

She argues it isn’t valid because Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, signed it, but the president did not.

Cohen asked the court to delay the civil case after his office and residence were raided by the FBI. Federal prosecutors in New York say they are investigating Cohen’s personal business dealings.

Daniels’ attorney has objected to the delay.
