Attorney Michael Avenatti faces November trial in New York
New York, Jun 18 (AP) California attorney Michael Avenatti faces a November trial date on charges he tried to extort millions of dollars from Nike.

The Nov 12 trial date was set Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Paul Gardephe at a pretrial hearing in Manhattan.

Avenatti participated by telephone. Afterward, he said in a statement he looks forward to a jury exonerating him.

A Tuesday hearing scheduled over allegations he defrauded porn star Stormy Daniels was postponed.

Avenatti was charged in March with trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike, the sportswear company.

Avenatti gained fame representing Daniels over a nondisclosure deal regarding an alleged affair with President Donald Trump.
