Avenatti had filed a motion to intervene in the case, as the Trump Organization and lawyers for the president had, and his motion has been held in abeyance, meaning that it's indefinitely suspended.
Wood said at the hearing Wednesday that she had to balance the needs of lawyers for Cohen and Trump with the needs of criminal prosecutors.
Wood was not persuaded, dismissing Cohen's concerns and those of an attorney for the Trump Organization who argued that a faster pace might degrade the review. Davidson represented Daniels when she received $130,000 from Cohen in October 2016 for, she claims, silence over an alleged sexual tryst with Trump in 2006.
Federal prosecutors additionally revealed for the primary time that among the many objects seized Cohen final months was a shredding machine, the contents of that are among the many exclusively objects that the federal government has not but turned over to the particular grasp or Cohen's authorized workforce. "It was a drive-by shooting of anyone named Michael Cohen", he said.
At the moment, a special master is overseeing a document review of the items obtained by the government in the raids to determine what falls under attorney-client privilege.
After the hearing, Avenatti withdrew his motion to appear in the case, but he could file another in the future.
Joanna Hendon, a Trump attorney, said she shared the concerns raised by Cohen's team about Avenatti.
The handling of that payment drew the interest of federal prosecutors because President Trump did not include it on federal election and financial disclosure forms in 2017, according to the story.
Cohen's legal professionals mentioned they've about 3.7 million information to sift by, however they're exclusively a few third of the best way to completion. By Ryan's count, Avenatti made at least 170 TV appearances and Ryan said he attacked Cohen in majority. "It would change your conduct", Wood said.
She said almost 300,000 items, including 12,543-pages of hard-copy documents in eight boxes, have already been turned over to prosecutors.
While making various cases for why Avenatti didn't belong anywhere near the matter before the court, Michael Cohen's attorney Stephen Ryan also raised the bankruptcy issue.
Avenatti shot back with allegations that Cohen leaked audio recordings of his discussions with Daniels' former lawyer, Keith Davidson, had with Cohen.
The special master Wood appointed to also review the documents before federal prosecutors, Barbara Jones, had updated the court Tuesday, stating she was set to receive one million more files from three of Cohen's cell phones and had already reviewed nearly 300,000 files.
"There's no evidence we did anything improper", he said.
Meanwhile, Avenatti has asserted that Cohen and his legal team are leaking audio recordings related to Daniels that were seized in the Federal Bureau of Investigation raids on Cohen's home and office.
Upon leaving the courthouse in lower Manhattan, Cohen - who also has the Fox TV star Sean Hannity as a client - did not reply to a shouted question about whether he meant to cooperate with prosecutors.
In their letter Tuesday night, Cohen's attorneys also pointed to a tweet from Avenatti about Cohen's finances and to a recent bankruptcy court decision against Avenatti's law firm.
