King v. Whitmer
Citation:556 F.Supp.3d 680 (E.D. Mich. 2021)
King (Plaintiff) and other plaintiffs, who were a group of registered Michigan voters and nominees of the Republican Party to be presidential electors on behalf of the state, sued Governor Whitmer (Defendant) and other Michigan state officials, alleging constitutional violations through the manipulation of the vote count in the 2020 presidential election to result in Joe Biden’s victory. The plaintiffs alleged that the defendants committed a scheme to fraudulent and illegally manipulate the vote count in Michigan. The lawsuit was dismissed, as the court found that the plaintiffs lacked standing, their claims was mooted, abstention was appropriate, and that the plaintiffs were not likely to succeed on the merits. The defendants filed a motion for sanctions for the plaintiffs’ attorneys, which is now before the court.
