Former lawyer Michael Cohen, 57, asked the U.S. Supreme Court to revive a failed lawsuit against his former boss, Donald Trump, 78.

The ex-president’s onetime fixer and current bête noire alleges that in 2020, Trump, then-U. S. Attorney General Bill Barr and various Justice Department officials retaliated against him for penning a tell-all book about his time in Trumpworld and had him thrown in jail.

The lawsuit has been serially dismissed at every stage in the federal system, however, but not without controversy and handwringing.

Now, in a long-promised Wednesday petition for writ of certiorari, Cohen’s attorneys have appealed to the highest court in the land.
