Re: 2020 Election Lawsuits

I've really enjoyed your litigation analysis over the last (days? weeks?, losing track), fabulous work. even with electors as plaintiffs ISTR from discussion of ... maybe Lin Wood's federal case in Georgia, that voters are referred to in Georgia statutes as "electors," but I've had too muc...

Re: 2020 Election Lawsuits

Mike's been discussing defective allegations that could easily be fixed by lying. Is there any reason to think Trump believers would have scruples about that?

Re: 2020 Election Lawsuits

I realize that the horse is out of the barn, but I do question whether it's a good idea to provide so much crowd-sourced copyediting for the Georgia complaint. It's not filed yet, and a certain amount of the nonsense could be cleaned up. Understood. But in this case, I think cleaning up the copy wo...

Re: 2020 Election Lawsuits

Re: 2020 Election Lawsuits

Random thoughts. I still don't understand how the individual plaintiffs have stated a claim against the defendants in the second amended complaint.

Not everything gets posted to the public docket right away. Just sayin'. And even if they file (a little) late it'll likely be allowed. Except in truly exceptional circumstances, e.g., motions for a stay of execution, there are rarely obvious consequences for being minutes or even hours late. But w...

Re: 2020 Election Lawsuits

Let's pretend that the Appellate Court sends it back to Judge Brann with instructions to allow leave to amend the complaint.

Yeah, it bothered me when I read it.
