Nine Trump-aligned lawyers to pay $175K in sanctions

Pro-Trump lawyers to pay $175,000. Attorneys to pay for 2020 lawsuits.

Where: Washington, DC

The Facts

Nine Trump-aligned lawyers, who sued public officials over claims of illegally manipulating votes during the 2020 elections in Michigan, have been ordered to pay $175,000, total, in sanctions.

US District Judge Linda Parker ordered nine attorneys, including Sidney Powell and Lin Wood, to cover the legal costs of defending the suits.

The lawsuits cost Detroit $153,000 and Michigan $22,000 in legal costs.

Parker had previously ordered the lawyers to undergo 12 hours of legal education, including 6 hours of election law.

Three top elected Michigan officials, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney General Dana Nessel, and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, want four of the nine attorneys disbarred.
