Nine lawyers supporting Trump have been fined $ 175,000 for abusing the justice system by filing bogus election lawsuits.
Nine lawyers allied with former President Donald Trump were ordered Thursday to pay Detroit and Michigan a total of $ 175,000 in penalties for abusing the justice system with a mock trial challenging the 2020 election results.
The money, which must be paid within 30 days, will cover the legal costs of the defense against the lawsuit, which amounted to more than $ 153,000 for the city and almost $ 22,000 for the state.
Judges across the country have looked at Trump’s lawyers for their frivolous and spurious lawsuits challenging the 2020 election.
The judicial system’s exasperation at Trump’s abuses can also be seen in the swift manner in which the courts have dealt with Trump’s claim of executive privilege. The appeals court is unlikely to rule in favor of Trump, which means that in about a month the failed former president will have exhausted his legal avenues outside the Supreme Court.
The justice system is clearly fed up with Trumpian abuse, which is why the Michigan judge threw the book on the nine Republican lawyers.
The most effective way to put an end to this antics is to hit those lawyers right in the wallet.
