Celebrity billionaire Donald Trump is owed $5 million by Sheena Monnin, the former Ms. Pennsylvania 2012 who claimed that the 2012 Miss USA Pageant was rigged.
Trump, the owner of the Miss USA Pageant, is now owed $5 million from Ms. Monnin, asU.S. District Judge J. Paul Oetkenupheld the original ruling by a arbitrator Theodore Katz that Monnin’s comments prompted BP, a potential sponsor of the contest for $5 million, to opt out of the sponsorship.
The judge ripped Monnin's former attorney, Richard Klineburger III of Philadelphia, writing that “Monnin put her trust in her attorney, believing that he would represent her interests to the best of his ability throughout the Arbitration process. Unfortunately, Klineburger chose to ignore the responsibilities owed to his client, along with the ethical duties governing his profession.”
