Hawk-eyed New Yorkers took notice recently when — nestled among the court filings in Donald Trump's criminal case — an iconic LGBTQ nightclub was listed as the site where Stormy Daniels allegedly refused a subpoena from the former president's legal team.

According to a recent court filing, a process server found Daniels at the Brooklyn venue 3 Dollar Bill in March, where she was attending a screening of her Peacock documentary, Stormy. The server said that he approached Daniels with the papers when she arrived at the venue, but was forced to "leave them at her feet" after she kept moving along.

“I stated she was served as I identified her and explained to her what the documents were,” the process server wrote in the filing, according to the Associated Press. “She did not acknowledge me and kept walking inside the venue, and she had no expression on her face.”

Trump's lawyers have asked the judge in his so-called "hush money" trial to help them enforce their subpoena, as they aim to get a swath of information from Daniels that they could wield to attack her credibility as a witness.

According to AP, Daniels’ lawyer Clark Brewster claimed that they never received the paperwork, and described the defense counsel's requests as an “unwarranted fishing expedition” that isn't relevant to his trial.

In the recent court filings, Trump’s team accused Daniels of “plainly seeking to promote her brand and make money based on her status as a witness," NBC News reports. Stormy — which documents the adult film actress's life after getting on Trump's bad side — was released on Peacock one week before the trial was initially supposed to begin.

It makes sense that Daniels would be served the subpoena at 3 Dollar Bill, during a publicity event centered around her documentary, as it draws attention to the kind of promotion that Trump's lawyers hope to spin against her.

In the documentary, Daniels admits that members of the LGBTQ community have embraced her since she spoke out against Trump; as evidence, the doc includes footage of gay men piling into Manhattan dive bar Nowhere in 2018 to watch her bombshell 60 Minutes interview.

NBC News reports that Trump's defense counsel is seeking documents related to how Daniels' documentary was promoted and edited. They have also asked Daniels to disclose how much, if anything, she was paid for the documentary.

The subpoena also requested that Daniels release any communications she's had with other likely trial witnesses — like Michael Cohen and Karen McDougal — and Trump accuser E. Jean Carroll.

When Trump's team tried to subpoena NBC Universal earlier in April for information related to the Stormy documentary, the judge blocked their attempt, writing that the demands were "the very definition of a fishing expedition.”
