Alex Wong/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — President Donald Trump’s former fixer and personal attorney Michael Cohen has filed a lawsuit in New York court seeking payment for legal fees that he claims he is owed by the Trump Organization.
In the suit, Cohen claims the company is in breach of contract and had previously agreed to pay his legal fees as it relates to the special counsel’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election and other related matters.
According to the filing which ABC News has obtained, “as of January 25, 2019, unreimbursed attorneys’ fees and costs incurred on behalf of Mr. Cohen in connection with the Matters subject to his indemnification agreement with the Trump Organization exceeded $1.9 million. Attorneys’ fees and costs subject to the Trump Organization’s indemnification agreement continue to accrue.”
