A Miami state court judge slashed a mid-six-figure attorney fees request by 95%, delivering a blow to a 4-year-old’s mother, who had an affair with the married father while they worked as campaign advisers to then-candidate Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

The ruling follows what Broward Chief Judge Jack Tuter called “scorched earth litigation.” Court records show current and former chief judges—in Miami-Dade and Broward—once recused their entire circuit courts, although the case is now before the Miami-Dade Circuit.
