Lawyers on behalf of President Donald Trump sent a letter Wednesday night to former White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon demanding he refrain from making disparaging comments against the president and his family.

Interested in Donald Trump?

Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

The letter comes after excerpts from a forthcoming book by journalist Michael Wolff were made public Wednesday, causing a stir.

Trump attorney Charles J. Harder of the firm Harder Mirell & Abrams LLP, said in a statement, "This law firm represents President Donald J. Trump and Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. On behalf of our clients, legal notice was issued today to Stephen K. Bannon, that his actions of communicating with author Michael Wolff regarding an upcoming book give rise to numerous legal claims including defamation by libel and slander, and breach of his written confidentiality and non-disparagement agreement with our clients. Legal action is imminent."

In the letter to Bannon, Harder, writes, "You [Bannon] have breached the Agreement by, among other things, communicating with author Michael Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members, and the Company, disclosing Confidential Information to Mr. Wolff, and making disparaging statements and in some cases outright defamatory statements to Mr. Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members, and the Company, knowing that they would be included in Mr. Wolff's book and publicity surrounding the marketing and sale of his book."

During the campaign, then-candidate Trump had all campaign staff sign a non-disclosure agreement which required all staff, according to campaign sources, to refrain from any disparaging comments against the candidate, his family or the Trump campaign and organization.

Bannon has not responded to ABC News' request for comment.

In the letter, Trump's attorney writes, "Remedies for your breach of the agreement include but are not limited to monetary damages, injunctive relief and all other remedies available at law and equity," although no dollar amount is disclosed.

The letter then cites parts of Paragraph 8 of the Agreement: "Consent to Injunction. A breach of any of your promises or agreements under this agreement will cause the Company, Mr. Trump and each other Trump Person irreparable harm. Accordingly, to the extent permitted by law, and without waiving any other rights or remedies against you at law or in equity, you hereby consent to the entry of any order, without prior notice to you, temporarily or permanently enjoining you from violating any of the terms, covenants, agreements or provisions of this agreement on your part to be performed or observed. Such consent is intended to apply to an injunction of any breach or threatened breach."

The "Damages and Other Remedies" part of the Agreement is then cited, "Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, each Trump Person will be entitled to all remedies available at law and equity, including but not limited to monetary damages, in the event of your breach of this agreement. Nothing contained in this agreement will constitute a waiver of any Trump Person's remedies at law or in equity, all of which are expressly reserved."

Towards the end of the letter, Harder writes "Further, as the prevailing party in any litigation arising out of your breach of the Agreement, Mr. Trump and the Company will be entitled to 'an award of reasonable legal fees and costs."

President Donald Trump, accompanied by Reince Priebus, Vice President Mike Pence, Michael Flynn, Steve Bannon, and Sean Spicer, speaks on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the White House, Jan. 28, 2017.

Earlier Wednesday, Trump hit back at Bannon in scathing comments, saying that when Bannon was fired "he not only lost his job, he lost his mind".

President Trump's comments, which came in the form of a written statement from the White House, were in response to Bannon's strident criticism of Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort for sitting down with a group of Russians who promised damaging information against Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election in excerpts from Wolff's new book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House".

"Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind. Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating seventeen candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican party," the president said in a statement. "Now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn't as easy as I make it look. Steve had very little to do with our historic victory, which was delivered by the forgotten men and women of this country. Yet Steve had everything to do with the loss of a Senate seat in Alabama held for more than thirty years by Republicans. Steve doesn't represent my base -- he's only in it for himself."

Bannon responded to that statement on Breitbart News' SiriusXM show on Wednesday, telling a listener who called in, "The president of the United States is a great man. You know I support him, day in and day out, whether going through the country giving the Trump miracle speech or on the show or on the website."

I am not a lawyer. This is my opinion and a summary of what I have learned and observed. If you need legal advice, contact a lawyer.

When you purchase a Judgment, you can either hire a lawyer to represent you in court or you can (much more likely) represent yourself Pro Se (also known as Pro Per, meaning without a lawyer representing you.)

The reason you can represent yourself in court is the Sixth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. In addition to guaranteeing a trial by jury, it provides for self-representation in any court of law. The decision has been upheld in every state. You can represent yourself in all legal proceedings. However, unless you are a licensed attorney, you cannot represent another person.

When a judgment enforcer looks at judgment cases, they will find and purchase judgments where the Original Judgment Creditor (OJC) had to hire a lawyer to file the lawsuit and win the Judgment.

You may be fortunate enough to discover your OJC has already paid his lawyer in full, with no remaining balance owed to the lawyer. Even then, in some states, you may need to have your OJC request that their lawyer remove themselves as the lawyer of record in the court the judgment was awarded at.

The lawyer is usually not listed on the judgment enforcer's Assignment of Judgment form - only the original judgment creditor signs it under a notary's supervision. The Judgment Enforcer's purchase agreement often names, and is signed by both the OJC and their lawyer.

Even when lawyers remove themselves, they will still be owed money for their fees, and may file a claim in court for such fees. The OJC is obligated to pay those fees, and you probably should make sure your purchase agreement addresses the payment of all lawyer fees.

Some lawyers will file suit and win a Judgment with the OJC retaining the lawyer on a contingency basis. When this is done there may be fees to be paid out of any recovery made on the judgment. In this situation the OJC must request the lawyer to remove himself or herself as the lawyer of record.

In most states, when a lawyer removes himself or herself from representation on a judgment, they use a (usually) court-provided Substitution Of Attorney form. This form is used even when there is no new attorney. With no new attorney, the OJCs is representing himself or herself.

Although there are forms available to send to the OJC, it is smarter to request the OJC to ask their lawyer or former lawyer to remove themselves as attorney of record. If you are not a lawyer, note that if you prepare a substitution of attorney form for the lawyer, you always should be careful that your actions are not for "a client" as that could be interpreted as an Unauthorized Practice of Law (UPL).

Once in a while you will run across a lawyer that wishes to charge more than the OJC is willing to pay. You also may find that the lawyer has no interest in preparing or signing a substitution of attorney form for the OJC.

If the lawyer will not cooperate, the OJC can go to the attorney's office to thank them קליק for winning the case, and explain that this is a way to start repaying the attorney's fees. As soon as the money comes in, they will be paid. Most lawyers will be happy to hear this and sign a substitution of attorney form.
