Michael Avenatti, whose courtroom clashes spawned an array of legal woes for U.S. President Donald Trump this year, said talks with Michael Cohen’s lawyers have broken off.

Avenatti is representing adult-film actress Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against Trump and Cohen over a $130,000 hush agreement she signed before the 2016 election. Last month Avenatti said he’d be open to settling with Cohen and representing him in a joint fight against Trump. Not any more.
