Cohen Sues Trump Organization, Mentions the ‘Millions’ He’s Incurred in Attorney Fees

The disgraced former attorney is due to serve three years in prison beginning in May, claims company violated an agreement

Michael Cohen sued the Trump Organization in New York Supreme Court on Thursday for millions of dollars in legal fees and costs, claiming the company must pay him for “matters arising” from his work for the company — including “multiple congressional hearings” and costs related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Cohen is slated to report to prison to serve three years in May.

He worked for the organization for more than a decade as an attorney.

In his suit, he claimed the company violated an agreement that it would compensate him for his work related to the organization and its officers.

“This action arises from the Trump Organization’s failure to meet its indemnification obligations under a contractual agreement between the Trump Organization and Mr. Cohen, pursuant to which the Trump Organization agreed to indemnify Mr. Cohen and to pay attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by Mr. Cohen in connection with various matters arising from Mr. Cohen’s work with and on behalf of the Organization and its principals, directors, and officers,” Cohen’s attorneys wrote in a court filing Thursday.
