I predict a genuine struggle to get into the 4,000 person conf line for today’s hearing. The court should give someone permission to rebroadcast it.
Oh no! (h/t @benjaminwittes)
I predict the words “it’s a bar not a court” coming out Giuliani’s mouth in that order sometime today or tomorrow.
Giuliani’s name does not appear on the Second Circuit’s “current roll of admitted attorneys,” nor does it appear (fwiw) in the circuit’s archive of admitted attorneys going back to 1985. ca2.uscourts.gov/clerk/attorney…
Giuliani is approved to appear today.

There are some uhh oddities to the Trump campaign's motion for leave to file a second amended complaint, incl:
- the clean version, filed as an exhibit, is the *first* amended complaint
- they--the plaintiffs--went ahead and signed the proposed order on behalf of the judge Image
Also no attorney signatures appear on the redline (comparing first and second). That's no big deal in itself, but since the plaintiffs didn't file a clean version of the second amended complaint, there's no indication which attorneys if any have signed the new complaint.
This is their second try at filing these documents tonight, btw.

3,999 participants on the call as the Trump campaign hearing in the middle district of PA gets underway
The lawyers, including Giuliani, are mostly present in person. The judge is going through a roll call.

“Who are these other individuals in the back?” He just asked. “Presenting or just dropped by?”
Giuliani says he will be seeking leave to amend the complaint to restore the due process claims he says were mistakenly removed. So I guess @joshgerstein’s reading comprehension is okay after all.

Public health experts are out here trying to get people to cancel their Thanksgivings ahead of a cresting wave of hospitalization and death, and the Speaker thinks it’s a good time to have an indoor banquet?
New members — just don’t attend. Even if it were entirely safe to spend hours in an enclosed space with people from around the country rn, which it’s not, there’s no way the photos coming out of this event are going to be anything but a giant albatross around your necks.

If you’re not familiar with PACER, each court has a separate site with its own login and it’s a huge hassle.
... it also means the chances of *the system* filing something in the wrong jurisdiction are essentially zero. An attorney or paralegal having an extended brain fart could pull it off; but there’s like no conceivable technical glitch that would file your suit in the wrong court.

Please do not slip back into bothsides coverage.
To recap, the D-controlled House *passed* two Covid relief bills; the R-controlled Senate hasn’t taken one up yet. The Trump White House repeatedly calls off negotiations with the House; when talks do go forward, the Senate refuses to attend.
The biggest apparent problem in the process is that the Republican leadership in the Senate does not have enough votes in its own conference to pass any relief bill and is unwilling to pass a bill (and potentially defeat its own members’ filibuster$ with Democratic votes.
