President Trump's former personal lawyer filed the motion Thursday night in a California court saying Avenatti's verbal attacks on him threatened to turn the case into a media circus and undermine Cohen's ability to get a fair trial.

But in a brief order, the judge said Cohen had not shown he would face immediate irreparable injury without an immediate gag order on Avenatti.>> There's no question in my mind that he's gonna be indicted, and there's no question in my mind that he's gonna try to flip on the President.
