Former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell’s lawsuit in Georgia hit another roadblock on Monday. A federal judge dropped the case, saying what the lawsuit asks for is too extraordinary.
Powell filed the case on behalf of a group of Republicans in Georgia. It argues almost 100,000 votes are illegal in Georgia’s Nov. 3 election, and the results in the state should be overturned.
Powell is representing a group of Republican plaintiffs seeking to invalidate the election results in Georgia.
The suit alleges, citing expert analysis, that at least 96,600 votes were illegally counted during the 2020 general election in the Peach State.
Federal Judge for United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia Timothy Batten said Powell’s request to completely reject the election results was the most “extraordinary relief ever sought in any federal court in connection with an election,” and the judge is “unwilling” to overturn the will of millions of Georgia voters.
The judge said there is “no question in my mind” that if he had granted Powell’s case, his decision would have been reversed by the circuit court.
He also argues the lawsuit was filed too late, and should have been filed with a state court.
A federal judge in Georgia on Dec. 7 dismissed an election-related lawsuit brought by Powell, arguing that the plaintiffs have no standing to bring the lawsuit, should have filed it with a state court, and brought the suit too late.
Powell said she plans to appeal the judge’s decision. She told The Epoch Times in an email that her legal team “will proceed as fast as possible to the Supreme Court.”
Her team will appeal the dismissal of the election lawsuit tossed by a federal judge on Monday.
