Judge Tosses Avenatti’s Second Bankruptcy Filing, Orders Him to Explain ‘What Was on His Mind’

An emergency hearing occurred Wednesday after a former law partner alleged that California attorney Michael Avenatti, who is no longer representing Stormy Daniels, improperly filed for bankruptcy protection to avoid a deposition. Avenatti filed for bankruptcy protection for the second time last Thursday regarding his old firm Eagan Avenatti, this after a judgment of $10 million was awarded to his former law partner Jason Frank.
