Prosecutors: Michael Avenatti Shook Down Nike To Deal With 'Mountain Of Debt'

Reuters reports celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti’s extortion trial neared its end on Tuesday.

A federal prosecutor said Avenatti had an “agenda” to shake down Nike Inc by threatening to tar it with corruption allegations.

Avenatti's defense lawyers said their client was simply representing his client aggressively.

He was also accused of defrauding his client Gary Franklin, who was once part of a Nike-sponsored basketball league.
