Trump hires former parking garage lawyer

Trump attorney Alina Habba

Former President Donald Trump’s newest attorney, Alina Habba, previously served as general counsel for a parking-garage company.

Alina Habba is from a four-attorney firm with offices near Trump’s Bedminster, N.J., golf club, this week filed a $100 million lawsuit on the former president’s behalf, against the New York Times and his niece, Mary Trump.

The Washington Post: “Habba had never worked for Trump. Her experience included being general counsel for a parking garage company.”

Earlier this month, one of former president Donald Trump’s best-known attorneys Marc E. Kasowitz — withdrew from a case in which Trump had been sued for alleged defamation.

Trump replaced him with Alina Habba, a lower-profile lawyer who previously served as general counsel for a parking-garage company.

The Washington Post: “In recent months, court records show, Habba has represented a man suing a New Jersey nursing home for allegedly lax care during the coronavirus pandemic, and a student who sued the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut for not refunding tuition when classes went online-only,” the Post reported. “Last month, she sued two Portuguese news outlets for allegedly libeling a New Jersey man by tying him to a far-right Portuguese political party.”

Habba is also defending Trump in a defamation suit brought by a former “Apprentice” contestant.
