Friday afternoon at the Orange Country Superior Court in Santa Anna, Judge Robert A Moss upheld and affirmed his October 22nd eviction order in the case of non-payment of rent for the law offices of Michael Avanatti. The oft-mentioned Democratic candidate for president in 2020 was also ordered to leave the premises by early Monday morning.

Avenatti failed to pay the rent for four months, triggering the suit from landlords to sue for eviction. Avenatti missed $213,254 in rent payments. The Orange County Sheriffs Office posted a notice on the door of the firm ordering the premises to be vacated by 6 am local time 19 November.

Avenatti had positioned himself through his overnight rise to national prominence as an advocate for women's rights, triggering serious discussions by prominent Democrats of his being their next candidate for President of the United States.

This past Wednesday (15 Nov) Avanatti, also the attorney for adult film actress Stormy Daniels, was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence and released on $50,000 bond. He has denied allegations.
