So, Judge Brann’s decision has been appealed and within days, the Third Circuit rejected the Trump campaign’s appeal. I wrote about the lower court decision here. In the Third Circuit opinion, Judge Bibas, a Trump appointee, wrote that voters choose the President, not lawyers. “Ballots, not briefs, decide elections.” The entire three-judge panel rejected

These lawsuits filed by the Trump campaign are remarkably weak and lacking in evidence. I previously wrote about one such lawsuit in Pennsylvania here. Rudy Giuliani himself appeared in the Pennsylvania lawsuit last week. He literally parachuted into the suit, submitting his motion pro hac vice the day of his appearance. Judge Brann, an

As lawsuits go, these are pretty bizarre. The Trump campaign has filed at least a dozen lawsuits in several states seeking to overturn the election results. One lawyer, Mark “Thor” Hearne, from St. Louis, filed a lawsuit in the Federal Court of Claims, apparently intending to file in the Michigan Court of Claims. He blamed

The Trump administration issued an Executive Order that changes the classification of top civil servants and makes it easier to fire them. The order targets those in policy-making positions. Experts indicate the move would affect anywhere from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands in a workforce of some 2.1 million. The move would affect

Arbitration has been sold as a more efficient, cheaper alternative to litigation. But, the reality is that it can be very expensive. And, unlike traditional courts, if you do not pay the arbitrator, the lawsuit stops. AAA, the leading provider of arbitral service, requires periodic deposits to cover anticipated future costs of the arbitration. Pres.

The Department of Justice, the pre-eminent law firm in the country, has sued Stephanie Winston Wolkoff for breach of a confidentiality agreement. Winston Wolkoff signed the Non-Disclosure Agreement when she worked for a time at the White House. Later, this year, she published a “tell-all” book about Melania Trump. Ms. Winston Wolkoff is a former

Another whistle blower has been forced out of his job in the Trump Administration. Dr. Rick Bright, a scientist at the National Institute of Health and a vaccine expert, has resigned. He submitted a whistle blower complaint several months ago. See my prior post here. His complaint was very detailed, extending over some 300

I had a dream a couple of nights ago in which I visited the netherworld. Felt this overwhelming desire to assure those brave men buried at the Aisne-Marne American cemetery in France that the President’s comments were wrong, all wrong. For those of us with a modest bit of PTSD, Pres. Trump’s comments stung. Those

Pres. Trump ¬†fired the IG for the State Department late Friday. He is required by statute to explain why. But, his letter to Congress simply said he lost confidence in Steve Linick. Yes, the old “lost confidence” rationale. The refuge of all retaliating employers. Later, when asked about the termination, Pres. Trump minimized one of

The Office of Special Counsel has found in favor of Dr. Bright. I previously wrote about Dr. Bright here. The quickness of the finding underscores the strength of Dr. Bright’s case. I have yet to get the OSC to even conduct an actual investigation in any of my cases. OSC has recommended that Dr.
