To translate from Willy Wonka, the federal judge in the PA case dismissed the pending complaint with prejudice and denied Giuliani’s attempt to amend it. The case is over (pending appeal).
Read it read it read it
“That Plaintiffs are trying to mix-and-match claims to bypass contrary precedent is not lost on the Court.”
“Prohibiting certification of the election results would not reinstate the Individual Plaintiffs’ right to vote. It would simply deny more than 6.8 million people *their* right to vote.”
The avuncular-judge-recommending-a-bar indicator crashes and burns, not for the first time.
And the hits. just. keep. on. coming.
The Trump campaign failed to cite a federal court decision from Nevada that directly rejected its theory of standing in a case it was a party to two months ago.
A great, concise discussion of equal protection remedies and why Trump’s proposed remedy was so perverse.
Vindication for the firm of Swaine & Viebeck.

The Trump Campaign is going to move the Third Circuit—an appellate court—for a TRO. That’s not a thing. Image
Five minutes after the deadline, no sign of the opening brief. (tbf it may have been lodged but not put on the docket yet.) Image
17m after the deadline now... still nothing.

Powell appears to have crossed the line. The Elite Strike Force is minus one. Image
Just for a sort of reality check, here is how Rudy kicked off the press conference on Thursday.

It very much included Sidney Powell as a “senior lawyer” “representing President Trump” and the campaign. Image

I’d underline this about the radicalism of this 11th Cir conversion therapy decision: it’s only about *licensure* of therapists. The panel majority is saying the 1A forbids authorities regulating this harmful practice among people it grants licenses to.…
So it’s not about clergy or political groups or all the other crazy that’s out there. It’s about a licensed therapist in Boca Raton attempting to change their minor patients’ sexual orientations. That’s the speech interest at stake.
It’d be like if a licensed driving instructor was teaching 15 year olds to drive into walls at 40mph and then claiming any effort by the state to curtail this dangerous instruction was illegal bc his right to give it and retain his license was protected by the First Amendment.

Giuliani’s son — a public employee — endorses the effort to steal the election and destroy American democracy in his bio. via @laraseligman
The younger Giuliani attended his father’s madcap press conference in a small densely paced room at the RNC yesterday afternoon. This morning, he announced he has Covid.

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
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.
