Michael Avenatti will not take the stand in his extortion trial, as the criminal case against the embattled attorney and outspoken critic of President Donald Trump is expected to move to closing arguments Tuesday.

Scott Srebnick, a Miami-based lawyer who is defending Avenatti against charges that he tried to shake down Nike Inc. for more than $20 million, told a Manhattan federal judge Monday that the scope of the defense case is expected to be “very limited” and will include “no witnesses.”
