Michael Owen Baker/AP/Shutterstock According to CNN, Srebnick argued that Avenatti was after justice for Franklin, his client, but prosecutors in the case claimed the lawyer only “saw dollar signs.” Prosecutors argued that Avenatti “devised a scheme to extort” Nike until the company agreed to pay the lawyer millions in an extortion attempt, according to its initial filing last March. Avenatti planned to hold a press conference divulging Nike’s alleged payments to the basketball recruits, prosecutors said. On March 25 last year, the lawyer tweeted that the next day he planned to hold “a press conference to disclose a major high school/college basketball scandal perpetrated by @Nike that we have uncovered.” RELATED: Actress Files for Restraining Order Against Michael Avenatti Less Than a Week After His Arrest Last spring, Nike said in a statement that it would “not be extorted.” “Nike will not be extorted or hide information that is relevant to a government investigation,” read the statement, obtained by KGW . “Nike has been cooperating with the government’s investigation into NCAA basketball for over a year. When Nike became aware of this matter, Nike immediately reported it to federal prosecutors. “When Mr. Avenatti attempted to extort Nike over this matter, Nike with the assistance of outside counsel at Boies Schiller Flexner, aided the investigation. Nike firmly believes in ethical and fair play, both in business and sports.” The former Stormy Daniels attorney is also due in a New York court on April 21 on charges that he stole money from an advance payment in Daniels’ book deal, Reuters reports . Avenatti is also expected in a California court in May for allegedly attempting to defraud millions of dollars from his clients and lying to the Internal Revenue Service. By Read more: People
