Pro-Trump lawyer L. Lin Wood said he wanted Georgia Governor Brian Kemp to be locked up on Wednesday night as he told a rally of locals to circle the Republican state leader’s home and blare their horns until he came outside.

Appearing beside the former Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell, and not speaking for the president’s re-election campaign in an official capacity, Wood made baseless claims about mass voter fraud in Georgia as he urged Governor Kemp to call a meeting of the state legislature.

How Is Trump’s Lawyer Jenna Ellis ‘Elite Strike Force’ Material?

In a written statement responding to questions about her record, Ms. Ellis described herself as “a highly experienced and highly qualified attorney and expert in my field.” Any assertions to the contrary “cast me in a false light,” she said. The Trump campaign provided the name of one federal case in which it said Ms. Ellis had participated, in 2012, when she was a year out of law school. But her name is not among the lawyers listed in the decision, and the case was not heard in a regular federal court, but rather in an administrative tribunal.

It has been a month since Election Day. In the weeks since, as Mr. Trump has refused to bow to the reality of his defeat, his fruitless attempts to persuade federal judges and state officials to undo the results have introduced the nation to a once-obscure cast of lawyers, legislators and local

Porter specifically grilled Mnuchin over his support to move $455 billion in COVID-19 relief from the Federal Reserve back into the Treasury’s general fund, making it harder for his successor to access the emergency funding.

Christopher Krebs, who was recently fired by President Donald Trump as the head of the federal government’s election cybersecurity efforts, suggested Tuesday that he might take legal action against one of Trump’s lawyers who said that Krebs should be shot.

In an interview on NBC’s “TODAY” show, host Savannah Guthrie asked Krebs how concerned he is about the comments made by Trump campaign lawyer Joe DiGenova in an interview Monday in which he said that Krebs “is a class A moron. He should be drawn and quartered. Taken out at dawn and shot.”

“It’s certainly more dangerous language, more dangerous behavior,” Krebs responded. “And the way I look at it

Two Dayton Law Students Take Home Honors In Ohio Attorney General’s Mock Trial Competition : University of Dayton, Ohio

They were the kind of tense exchanges between an attorney and a witness that would fit nicely in a courtroom TV drama.

But the only place these back and forths were broadcast was on Zoom, as the team from the University of Dayton School of Law prepared for the Ohio Attorney General’s Mock Trial Competition.

“Every week I’d come with something different and she’d have a different answer,” says 3L Zion Savory, who played the role of an attorney for the competition, of fellow teammate Khandice Lofton, who played the role of a witness. “If I caught her up one week, she’d answer a different way the next week.”

All those hours of trying to out-maneuver the other paid off at the competition when the two were matched up against attorneys and witnesses from other law schools in the state. Savory was awarded Best Attorney in the morning session and

Lawyers, prosecutors argue over sex-crimes trial

CLOSE

Bill Cosby was denied bail after being sentenced to up to 10 years in prison for his 2004 assault of Andrea Constand. Constand embraced supporters as she left court.

USA TODAY

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court heard conflicting arguments at a virtual hearing on Tuesday about whether Bill Cosby was fairly convicted of sex crimes in 2018, but many of the seven justices seemed doubtful of the prosecution’s assertions.

The high court heard oral arguments from Cosby’s appellate lawyer, Jennifer Bonjean, and from two prosecutors from the office of District Attorney Kevin Steele of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, about whether Cosby’s 2018 trial was flawed by evidence and testimony that should have been excluded, and thus should be thrown out. 

The court is not expected to issue a ruling for some months.

Cosby was convicted in April 2018 on three counts of aggravated sexual assault of his former friend, Andrea Constand,

Suing DeSantis over refusal to close beaches not frivolous, lawyer says

TALLAHASSEE — Saying that a lower-court judge “plainly encouraged” an appeal, a Northwest Florida attorney is disputing that his decision to continue pursuing a case against Gov. Ron DeSantis over COVID-19 beach closures was frivolous or in bad faith.

Santa Rosa Beach attorney Daniel Uhlfelder, who filed the lawsuit this spring to try to force DeSantis to close beaches statewide to prevent the spread of the disease, responded last week to an order by the 1st District Court of Appeal to show why he and his lawyers should not face sanctions for pursuing the appeal.

A panel of the Tallahassee-based appeals court on Nov. 13 rejected the case and suggested that the appeal and other documents filed by Uhlfelder “appear to be frivolous and/or filed in bad faith.”

But in the 19-page response Friday, Uhlfelder and lawyers Gautier Kitchen and Marie Mattox cited comments that Leon County Circuit Judge Kevin

“It’s certainly more dangerous language, more dangerous behavior,” Krebs responded. “And the way I look at it is that we are a nation of laws, and I plan to take advantage of those laws. I’ve got an exceptional team of lawyers that win in court, and I think they’re probably going to be busy.”
