President Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer and fixer is seeking a restraining order to bar the attorney for adult-film star Stephanie Clifford from talking to the press or public about her lawsuit against Trump and Cohen.

Trump told reporters at the White House Friday that he likes Cohen but hasn't spoken to him in a long time.

Cohen's lawyers Stephen Ryan and Todd Harrison of McDermott, Will & Emery LLP, a Washington and NY firm, are expected to complete a review of documents seized by federal prosecutors in an April raid on Cohen's home and office.

He noted that U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood, who is deciding which files seized from Cohen can be reviewed by prosecutors in a criminal probe into his business dealings, recently admonished Avenatti not to use her Manhattan courtroom in connection with a "publicity tour". Daniels has said the money was in exchange for her silence about an affair with Trump.

"Mr. Avenatti either needs to respect and observe the Code of Professional Conduct (for lawyers) or remove himself from this case", Cohen's lawyer Brent Blakely said in an email.

The criminal probe into Cohen's business dealings stems in part from a referral by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether Trump's 2016 campaign colluded with Russian Federation to influence the US presidential election. The judge reminded the parties Friday that requests for emergency orders "are exclusively for extraordinary relief and are discouraged". But an additional 315 megabytes of data have been pulled from the first of the two BlackBerries, and its contents were delivered to Cohen's attorneys on June 14. Trump subsequently acknowledged that he reimbursed Cohen for that payment.

About 3.7 million files were seized in the raids and are being reviewed to determine which ones may be subject to attorney-client privilege between Cohen and the president.

Friday, Otero said that Cohen " has not demonstrated in the Application that immediate, irreparable injury would occur in the absence of emergency ex parte relief".

According to a report in arstechnica.com on Saturday, a letter submitted to the presiding judge in the case against Cohen revealed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation recovered over 700 pages of messages and call logs from encrypted messaging apps on a smartphone belonging to Cohen.
