COLUMBUS, Ohio (FOX19 NOW/AP) - Attorneys for President Donald Trump have notified the court overseeing a settlement between Ohio’s capital city and porn actress Stormy Daniels of money owed to him by Daniels.

A federal judge last year said Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, must pay Trump nearly $293,000 for his attorneys' fees and another $1,000 in sanctions after her defamation suit against him was dismissed.

The city of Columbus reached a $450,000 settlement with Daniels earlier this year over the porn actress’ arrest at a strip club in July 2018.

Her federal lawsuit alleged officers conspired to retaliate against her over her claims she had sex with Trump before he became president.

Trump's lawyers said in a Wednesday filing that Clifford owes him $293,052.

Messages were left for Trump’s and Daniels’ attorneys.
