Following a federal court’s rejection of a defamation case brought forth by former porn star Stormy Daniels against Donald Trump, Daniels has been ordered to pay Trump $300,000 in attorney fees.

In a statement released on Monday, Trump celebrated the ruling, saying "all I have to do is wait for all of the money she owes me."

"As I have stated many times throughout the years, I never had an affair with Stormy Daniels, nor would I ever have wanted to. The ruling was a total and complete victory and vindication for, And of me," he said.

"The lawsuit was a purely political stunt that never should have been started, or allowed to happen, and I am pleased that my lawyers were able to bring it to a successful conclusion after the court fully rejected her appeal," he added.

The  Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit’s ruling follows an earlier ruling by a lower court that rejected Daniels' defamation suit against Trump after he refuted her claims that the two had sex in 2006, according to the Daily Mail.

The court said that it had no jurisdiction over Daniel’s appeal because she missed a 30-day deadline to appeal after a lower court first ordered her to pay the attorney fees to Trump.

A chain reaction of appeals had been set off during the lengthy legal battle, with attorneys for both parties being convicted of felonies in recent years.

Last month, Daniel’s lawyer Michael Avenatti was found guilty of stealing $300,000 from Daniels, who said he was owed the money for writing a book about her alleged encounter with Trump.

In 2018, Avenatti came into fame after advising Daniels, who claimed that Trump cheated on Melania with her and then tried to pay her off to try and secure his 2016 election victory.

Avenatti was convicted of wire fraud and aggravated identity theft following a Manhattan federal court trial in February.

In 2018, Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for a number of offenses, including paying Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about her encounter with Trump.

The payment was found to violate campaign finance laws.
