In Sanctions Push, Detroit Says Powell, Wood, Have Blood on Their Hands
(Reuters) – The city of Detroit on Tuesday renewed its push for sanctions against attorneys Sidney Powell, L. Lin Wood and others who sought to overturn Michigan’s electoral results, saying their Jan. 14 filing was riddled with misrepresentations.
The city also argued that the plaintiffs continued to push baseless claims of voter fraud in the presidential election in their Jan. 14 reply brief, which argued against imposing sanctions. If Powell, Wood and the others were sincere about withdrawing their lawsuit and avoiding sanctions, they “would not repeat those false claims,” the city continued.
U.S. District Judge Linda Parker in Detroit dismissed the plaintiffs’ lawsuit in December, saying the alleged evidence of voter fraud they pointed to was “nothing but speculation and conjecture that votes for President Trump were destroyed, discarded or switched to votes for Vice President Biden.”
Pro-Trump Lawyer Lin Wood Puts License in Jeopardy by Refusing Mental Health Evaluation
(Reuters) – L. Lin Wood, a lawyer who played a role in former President Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn his election defeat, put his law license in jeopardy on Friday by saying on social media that he would not undergo a mental health evaluation requested by an attorney licensing body.
Wood said on the app Telegram on Thursday that the State Bar of Georgia had told him he needed to submit to the evaluation to keep his law license.
A Delaware state judge earlier this month blocked Wood from representing former Trump adviser Carter Page, calling claims Wood made on Twitter about U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts “too disgusting and outrageous to repeat.”
Lin Wood has said:
◾️That Justice Roberts knew ahead of time that Justice Scalia was going to die.
◾️Claimed Justice Roberts arranged an illegal adoption through Jeffrey Epstein.
◾️Claimed Justice Roberts knows pedophilia.
◾️Claimed Jeffrey Epstein is alive.
◾️Called for Vice President Mike Pence to be executed by “firing squads.”
◾️His former law partners alleged that Wood threatened to take his own life and physically attacked their clients
◾️Teen brat Nicholas Sandmann fired Wood earlier this month over Wood’s tweets.
