Former US President Donald Trump has filed a notice of dismissal of his $500 million lawsuit against his former lawyer Michael Cohen. The agency reports this Reuters citing a court document.
“Plaintiff Donald Trump, through the undersigned representative, notifies that <...> he voluntarily withdraws his claim,” Trump’s lawyers said in a notice.
In April, Trump filed a lawsuit in federal court for the Southern District of Florida seeking $500 million from Cohen for breach of fiduciary duty and illicit enrichment. Trump accused his former lawyer of violating contractual obligations by disclosing confidential information about his client, and also disseminating information discrediting the ex-president for personal purposes. In particular, the former head of the American administration claims that Cohen inflated costs and also made money by publishing materials with defamatory information.
