If Neal “leave Nestle’s slave trafficking operation alooooone” Katyal is the tragedy, Powell and Wood are the farce:
Things only got worse from there, with Powell and Wood demanding the immediate production of 48 hours of security camera footage from the TCF Center, which is a convention center used as a voting station on Election Day. It is located in downtown Detroit, Michigan.
On Wednesday, Chief U.S. District Judge Pamela Pepper, an appointee of Barack Obama, took the attorneys to task, bluntly laying out the litany of basic mistakes made in the complaint.
After pointing out that the complaint was “not verified,” Pepper went to work on the substantive errors, first noting that plaintiffs’ motion stated that that the requested relief was “laid out in an attached order.”
“This language was highlighted and in a larger font than the rest of the motion. There was no order attached,” she wrote.
Powell and Wood also declared that they had filed a motion seeking to file affidavits under seal and requesting an in camera review, stating they had delivered those filings to the Defendants “by mail and FedEx at the following addresses.”
But that apparently didn’t happen.
“No addresses were listed below this statement and no documents were filed under seal. There was no request for in camera review,” she wrote.
Apparently, you get the lawyering nobody thinks you’ll ever pay for.
To be Scrupulously Fair, Wood does have a solid point here:
Here's Lin Wood telling Georgia Republicans NOT to vote for Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue next month.
"They have not earned your vote. Don't you give it to them. Why would you go back and vote in another rigged election for god's sake! Fix it! You gotta fix it!" pic.twitter.com/Uvj1QIpqFL— Justin Baragona (@justinbaragona) December 2, 2020
