Most Republicans who take an oath to serve and protect do not realize, apparently, that it is virtually impossible to follow down the Donald Trump crooked path. They see the lawsuit king filing frivolous suit after outrageous suit and walking free on his golf course. These two attorneys learned the hard way.
Attorneys Gary Fielder and Ernest John Walker apparently decided to try a get-rich-quick scheme. They argued. according to The Washington Post:
‘[There was a] vast national conspiracy to steal the election from President Donald Trump.’
Magistrate Judge N. Reid Neureiter, who was appointed as a magistrate judge by other judges, wrote a damning 68-page opinion. In it, he came down hard on the two lawyers who brought the suit. He said that the attorneys had made “little effort to corroborate information they had included in the suit:”
‘In short, this was no slip-and-fall at the local grocery store. Albeit disorganized and fantastical, the Complaint’s allegations are extraordinarily serious and, if accepted as true by large numbers of people, are the stuff of which violent insurrections are made.’
Judge Neureiter wrote that their argument was “highly disputed and inflammatory.” He called the lawsuit “one enormous conspiracy theory.”
Then in a surprising twist, the judge ordered the two attorneys to pay all of the suit’s defendants’ legal fees — 18 separate individuals and companies.
As attorneys who went before them, these lawyers just brought the court a whole crop of affidavits from a variety of people claiming the election was rigged. Not exactly proof, is it?
After losing, Trump had his own attorneys file 61 lawsuits trying to throw the 2020 election his way only to have all but one thrown out. The lone exception rested on a technicality. They were all frivolous lawsuits. The judge continued in his opinion:
‘[N]otable only in demonstrating no firsthand knowledge by any Plaintiff of any election fraud, misconduct, or malfeasance.’
The Colorado attorneys said they were representing160 million American voters and wanted “$160 billion in damages.” Their lawsuit alleged:
‘[A] complicated plot engineered by Dominion; Facebook; its founder Mark Zuckerberg; his wife, Priscilla Chan; and elected officials in four states. They had sought $160 billion in damages.’
Fielder sent an email where he wrote these two would appeal the judge’s order:
‘We were never acting in bad faith. [The case was intended to be] a peaceful and legal method” to address what he termed “the mountain of truthful and factual allegations in our complaint. The case has nothing to do with Donald Trump, and is concerned only with the integrity of our Presidential elections.’
The attorneys argued that the Dominion Voting Systems corporation “deleted 2.7 million” votes for Trump, The Politico reported:
‘[Dominion] deleted 2.7 million Trump votes nationwide.’
