The lawyer and his firm were ordered to vacate a Newport Beach office building after the court asserted its previous ruling that ordered to move out, the Los Angeles Times reported.
His law firm – Eagan Avenatti – was sued after skipping four months of rent payments totaling over $213,000.
The landlord of the office building, Irvine Co, won the case last month and ordered Avenatti’s firm to vacate the premises by Nov 1.
Avenatti then requested a reprieve, which delayed the eviction until this Friday’s hearing. He argued, on behalf of Avenatti & Associates, another firm he owns, that he had had an “oral rental agreement with the landlord,” a claim the landlord denied.
Avenatti didn’t show at either hearing.
