President Trump's legal team won a temporary restraining order last week against ex-porn star Stormy Daniels, who is fighting in court to tell her story about their alleged affair.

News of the court order broke Wednesday after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters an arbitration proceeding against Daniels "was won in the president's favor."

The White House's disclosure about the case helped keep allegations about the president and the adult film actress in the national spotlight again, and marked the latest twist in the porn star's attempt to abandon a confidentiality agreement.

Daniels sued on Teusday claiming her $130,000 settlement with Trump's lawyer,Michael Cohen, to keep quiet about their alleged relationshp was not valid because Trump didn't sign it.

Her lawsuit claimed she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and 2007; the confidentiality agreement was signed just days before the presidential election in 2016.

In a Wednesday night statement about the restraining order, Cohen's lawyer Lawrence Rosen said the arbitration judge concluded that Daniels "had violated the agreement and enjoined her from, among other things, filing this lawsuit."

"We intend to pursue our recourse in the context of the arbitration as agreed to by the parties and continue to categorically refute the claims alleged by Ms. Clifford and her counsel," Rosen said.
