FILE - In this Dec. 17, 2019, file photo, California attorney Michael Avenatti arrives at federal court in New York to enter a plea to an indictment charging him with trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike. An attorney for Avenatti says his client cannot properly prepare for his extortion trial while he is housed in drug kingpin El Chapo's chilly former cell. Attorney Scott Srebnick wrote in a letter to a federal judge Sunday, Jan. 19, 2020, that the onetime lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels needs to be transferred from solitary confinement at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City to the general population in the federal lockup.
