I wrote about the Judge’s initial decision here. Judge Linda Parker, a federal judge in Detroit, found lawyers Sidney Powell, Lin Wood and others guilty of filing a frivolous lawsuit. Their weak lawsuit claimed there was election fraud in the Michigan 2020 election. Their allegations were just silly. Worse, they had no evidence with which to support their half-baked allegations. The lawyers even mis-represented to the court the qualifications of their so-called expert.
Well, now the Judge has announced what those sanctions will include. Those nine lawyers will have to pay $175,000 to the City of Detroit and to the state of Michigan. See That money will reimburse those entities for the attorney’s fees they had to spend defending the frivolous allegations. The Hill report here. It just amazes me that nine otherwise sober, talented lawyers will play dice with their law licenses.
