Michael Avenatti is being accused by former Playboy model, Shera Bechard of sabotaging her non-disclosure agreement with a prominent Republican fundraiser.

A judge in Calfornia has ruled that a substantial link could be found by a trier of fact that Avenatti was the causal link of Ms. Bechard's damages.

According to The Daily Caller:

A judge in California ruled that Michael Avenatti may be liable for damages after he allegedly revealed the existence of a hush agreement between Elliott Broidy, the prominent Republican financier, and his mistress, Playboy playmate Shera Béchard.

Judge Elizabeth Allen White of the Los Angeles Superior Court will allow Béchard’s lawyers to argue Avenatti effectively destroyed their agreement by revealing confidential information about the contract, which he allegedly extracted from Béchard’s former attorneys.


Béchard received the first two settlement installments, but the quarterly payments ceased when The Wall Street Journal reported on the existence of the hush agreement on April 13. 

On the night before the WSJ report appeared, Avenatti tweeted that Cohen helped arrange an NDA similar to the sort Trump reached with his own client, Stephanie Clifford, a porn star better known by the stage name “Stormy Daniels,” who claims she had a sexual encounter with the president in 2006.

Avenatti publically claimed credit for the story in a Tweet. He even went so far that he complained that he hadn't been given the proper credit for the article.

This seems like strong evidence for Ms. Bechard and even stronger evidence destroying Mr. Avenatti's credibility.
