The lawsuit was filed over a tweet Trump sent in April suggesting Daniels was lying about being threatened in 2011 not to go public with her story of an alleged sexual encounter with Trump.

Daniels sued after Trump tweeted in April about her release of a sketch of a man she said warned her in a Las Vegas parking lot not to talk about their tryst.

"Mr. Trump's tweet is a non-actionable opinion that can not be the subject of a defamation claim", the ruling states, later explaining, "The First Amendment protects this type of rhetorical statement".

Trump has denied that ever happened, but he did finally admit - after first denying it - to reimbursing his lawyer Michael Cohen for a $130,000 payment made to Daniels on the eve of the 2016 election. However, she does have a right to pursue an appeal. "The First Amendment protects this type of rhetorical statement".
