Judge orders attorneys who brought frivolous election fraud case to pay more than $180,000 to folks they sued

Two lawyers who went to court to claim voter fraud after the 2020 election must pay nearly US$180,000 to the defendants they sued, a federal magistrate judge ordered Monday, saying their lawsuit aimed to “manipulate gullible members of the public and foment public unrest.”

The order from Magistrate Judge N. Reid Neureiter of the U.S. District Court in Colorado adds to the federal judiciary’s condemnations of attempts by attorneys supporting then-U.S. President Donald Trump to use the courts to vet right-wing conspiracies in the days after the presidential election…

The plaintiffs had no lawyers or experts that were able to support their claims of switched votes and government conspiracies, the judge noted, calling the lawsuit itself “one enormous conspiracy theory.”

Like Trump, these clowns had nothing but hot air to offer the court. Unlike many American voters, our court system tries to base decisions on proven fact – not hyperbole and innuendo.
