Melania Trump has notified the British daily and others of her intent to take action based on “false and defamatory,” statements, according to Politico, which first reported the news earlier today.
In a statement to Poynter, Harder confirmed that he’s been retained by Melania Trump:




“Mrs. Trump has placed several news organizations on notice of her legal claims against them, including Daily Mail among others, for making false and defamatory statements about her supposedly having been an ‘escort’ in the 1990s. All such statements are 100% false, highly damaging to her reputation, and personally hurtful. She understands that news media have certain leeway in a presidential campaign, but outright lying about her in this way exceeds all bounds of appropriate news reporting and human decency.”
Harder, a prominent attorney based in Los Angeles, represented the ex-professional wrestler and others, including a hair-replacement company, against Gawker Media as the New York-based company was pelted with a raft of lawsuits that ultimately brought it to bankruptcy.
Much of the litigation was bankrolled by Peter Thiel, a Silicon Valley billionaire who said the lawsuits were comeuppance for articles he perceived as “bullying” and “damaging.”
