The fact that these lawyers are not being sanctioned is going to do immeasurable harm to the legal system. What happens the first time a Trump judge says "sounds legit"?

They've really bought into the whole "I reject your reality and substitute my own" delusion.

They will be institutionalized for life.  Seriously.  Even I can see what kind of tripe is being filed and I know nothing about law at all.

/You expect any of their shiat to be coherent THIS far past the election???

Why the new submission? I'm a little concerned the Judge may have given them some pointers towards a slightly more limited request he'd accept.

Because everything they are basing the case on is a lie.  You can't go anywhere with a lie, no matter how "limited" the request is.

They've had close to sixty chances to limit their request.  They have nothing.

If this is the case I think it is, they've filed a flurry of motions so far but the court hasn't responded yet. They've also ignored a number of procedural rules and failed to serve any defendants.  Kind of the legal equivalent of I SENT YOU 20 DICK PICS, RESPOND biatch

When the senate confirmed Notorious ACB to the SCOTUS it was Mitch McConnell who said "Elections have consquences". Four months later his party wants nothing to do with consequences. Consequences are for other people, I guess.

This reads like satire that would be sent around law firms' internal e-mail.

From one of the footnotes:
"In an even more shocking move, Mr. Sollenberger's attorney, Anne Champion of Gibson Dunn, sent Mr. Davis the letter attached hereto as Exhibit C, claiming that Mr. Davis, despite Mr. Sollenberger's outrageous and factually incorrect Tweets, which led to Mr. Davis being summarily terminated from Goosehead Insurance (without being the chance to even give a statement of his side of the events), had committed the tort of defamation against Mr. Sollenberger by referring to him as a "radical left-wing journalist" (a clear statement of opinion that is patently not actionable in Texas, as any cursory review of Texas..."

He filed a lawsuit asking to overthrow the election; someone made light of his lawsuit and tweeted mean things at him, causing him to get fired from his insurance job at Goosehead, where they didn't give him time to explain! That's why he's clarifying that he didn't say he wanted Trump to stay in office; just that Biden can't be the president until the "do over election", and BTW HE'S THE VICTIM HERE.

Is it just me? Was I the only one who took U.S. history in IS 25 (middle school) in Flushing, NY in 1972?? Is that the only place that taught that elections were critically important, so there was a line of succession and a lot of detailed processes for state governments to get their results to Washington? Because the peaceful transition of power was literally the main point of the United States???

And that state legislatures can't certify election results and then decide that they "take it back"?

// I should admit that NYC public schools were very, very good, up until the mid-1970s or thereabouts.
// And was I the only one who was told in no uncertain terms that while they could not fire me because of my ethnicity, religion or gender, they could fire me for virtually any other reason without notice?
/// I'm beginning to think that maybe it's not the libs who are snowflakes.

What's even funnier about this claim is that Davis posted an incriminating video selfie at the Capitol riot, but of course it was Sollenberger's mean tweets that got him fired from his job, and not that he was caught red-handed in an insurrection riot.

It worked in that one state when a Democratic governor had all their powers removed by Republican state government. If the GOP is clearly against a government of the people, why not try at the national level?

you know you don't have to resort to insults

just ask the person looking at then Biden's ears to now Biden's ears to imagine they are breasts, or a scrotum

But that particular account doesn't actually discuss anymore. He just shiats memes. He's a 4chan bot at this point. Whatever brain power he had for discussion he is clearly not using here anymore.

This reminds me of a UK "invasion, sort of", of area 51.

They showed up at the gate and no one in the shack responded. They stepped past the gate a bit and nada. They went further in. Nada.

Then they made their fatal mistake. They knocked on the shack door. Now it was them down on the hot tarmac all zip tied up for a few hours and finding all manner of charges for them.

The guards gave them more than an ample opportunity to go away. They never warned them because the crew was deliberate in their taunting. They knew what they were doing. When they passed that line all hell rained down upon them.

I hope similiar happens eventually to all the bad lawyer dudes. Set one precedent and knock them down.

Enjoy the ride yourself!
