“Michael Cohen’s lawyer in hot water after citing court cases that don’t exist”


Michael Cohen’s troubles just keep coming.

In the yearslong legal saga over his connection to the hush money payments from Donald Trump to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, Cohen’s lawyer filed a motion to end his supervised release early in a filing at the end of November.

In it, Cohen’s lawyer, David M. Schwartz, cites three District Court decisions as a rationale for the move.

The problem? Those cases aren’t real.

“As far as the Court can tell, none of these cases exist,” U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman wrote in a Tuesday order, which asks Schwartz to provide evidence the cases exist by next Tuesday or face sanctions.
