An aspiring actress filed a petition for a restraining order against lawyer Michael Avenatti on Monday.
Mareli Miniutti, who appeared in a number of small films, filed the paperwork at a Santa Monica courthouse just days after Avenatti was accused of domestic violence, according to court records.
Avenatti, a lawyer for porn actress Stormy Daniels, was briefly detained by police on Friday when a woman accused him of assault.
It was not clear Monday night if Miniutti was the same woman who made the accusation against him last week.
