Washington — Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who became known for his representation of adult film actress Stormy Daniels and battle with former President Donald Trump, alleges in a new filing with the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) that he was mistreated while in federal custody in retaliation for his criticisms of Trump and former Attorney General William Barr.

Avenatti is seeking $94 million from the United States, or $1 million for each day he says he was held in solitary confinement or lockdown, according to a copy of the filing obtained by CBS News. He alleges under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) that the federal government is liable for intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment and false arrest, among other acts, while he was held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in Manhattan in 2020.

The article goes on to state the following:

The claim, known as a Standard Form 95, is the first step toward a potential lawsuit against the government. If a settlement cannot be reached or the agency denies the claim within six months, Avenatti could then file a lawsuit under the FTCA against the U.S. in federal court.


The disgraced lawyer has a number of complaints against prison officials, alleging they limited his contact with other inmates, friends and family, and subjected him to harsh conditions,  “frigid temperatures,” and said he only got to see the sun one time during the entire 94 days.

Avenatti laments in his filing that when he asked for reading material, he was only given one book: “The Art of the Deal,” co-written by Donald Trump and Tony Schwartz.

  1. The Jan 6 prisoners still being held in solitary should be paid out $1 million for each day of confinement but not this scumbag. Avenatti is in one of the most desirable white collar federal prison. Easy sailing; no Bubba the butt pirate or inmates sharpening toothbrushes at night.
