July 08, 2023

A New York judge on Friday awarded ex-White House adviser Steve Bannon’s former legal team more than $480,000 after the one-time Trump administration official stiffed them on payment. Davidoff Hutcher & Citron filed its claim against Bannon in February, claiming it was not paid for legal services from November 2020 through November 2022. The firm’s partner, Robert Costello, regularly represented Bannon over that period and the firm helped secure a presidential pardon for the 69-year-old in 2020. ZUMAPRESS.com / MEGAThe law firm represented Bannon through a series of legal problems, including an indictment that accused him of scamming $1 million from donors to the “We Build the Wall” GoFundMe campaign. Bannon made payments totaling $375,000 out of the more than $850,000 billed by Davidoff Hutcher & Citron, LLC, according to the firm.
