Michael Avenatti is a celebrity lawyer whose clients include Christina Aguilera, Glenn Frey and Don Henley. He represented Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against Donald Trump.
In regard to his extortion court case federal prosecutors alleged that during a meeting with a lawyer for Nike in March 2019 he threatened to release damaging information (house 3) about Nike unless it paid him between $15m and $25m.
At the time he approached Nike, Avenatti had been representing his then-client Gary Franklin, who ran a youth basketball league in Los Angeles.
Nike immediately reported the matter to federal prosecutors; and Avenatti was arrested shortly after announcing he would hold a news conference about a scandal surrounding the company.
On February 14, 2020 a jury in Manhattan found him guilty of trying to extort Nike Inc out of millions of dollars and defraud a youth basketball coach he represented. He could face up to 42 years in prison.
