A federal judge ordered the attorneys for Kari Lake to pay $122,200 to Maricopa County over her frivolous lawsuits trying to overrun the election results in Arizona

A federal judge ordered the attorneys for Kari Lake to pay $122,200 to Maricopa County over her frivolous lawsuits trying to overrun the election results in Arizona.

You may recall that Lake and Finchem — with financial backing from MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell — filed suit in April 2022 while they were running for governor and secretary of state.

Their lawsuit asked a judge to bar the machine tabulation of votes in the 2022 election and require that paper ballots be used instead. They claimed that Arizona vote-counting machines produced inaccurate results and that there were no paper ballots to verify the machine count.

"Plaintiffs lacked an adequate factual or legal basis to support the wide ranging constitutional claims they raised or the extraordinary relief they requested," Tuchi wrote in a quote obtained from Azcentral. "Plaintiffs filled the gaps between their factual assertions, claimed injuries, and requested relief with false, misleading, and speculative allegations." To attorneys Kurt Olsen, Andrew Parker and Alan Dershowitz, he hammered down that "Attorneys must be reminded that their duties are not qualified in the way he suggests and that courts are entitled to rely on their signatures as certifications their filings are well-founded."

A federal judge on Friday ordered the attorneys for Kari Lake and Mark Finchem to pay Maricopa County $122,200 — money the county's taxpayers spent to fend off a “frivolous” lawsuit brought before last year’s election.

Turns out judges don’t much like to see the court system used as a campaign prop.

Attorneys should take note of this.
