The Supreme Court on Monday morning dismissed a Nov. 3 election-related case filed by defamation lawyer Lin Wood.
The high court did not issue a comment as it denied Wood’s case, saying, “The petitions of writs of mandamus are denied.” Wood filed several third-party cases to challenge the results of last year’s election.
Wood had asked the Supreme Court justices to block the Jan. 5 Senate runoff elections in Georgia. Democrats won both Senate seats, giving them a slim majority in the Senate.
A separate lawsuit that was filed in November by Wood was rejected by the Supreme Court in February. That lawsuit alleged that there were numerous problems with how the election was conducted, including signature matching on absentee ballots.
Wood responded on his Telegram page.
“SCOTUS denial of review of election cases today was no surprise. That handwriting was on the wall from its previous refusal to review any November 2020 elections cases.
It is a fair question to ask whether the rule of law has any meaningful relevance in our current environment.
But I remain hopeful that we will soon return to being governed by established laws and case precedents.
In that regard, a very recent 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision is certainly in play with respect to the political attacks against me by the State Bar of Georgia.
In the process of trying to wrongfully destroy me to advance its political agenda, the State Bar of Georgia may end up destroying itself.
We shall see. Stay tuned.”
Wood, 68, said last month that Georgia’s State Bar is attempting to discipline him—which Wood described as a politically motivated act of revenge: “In short, the GA State Bar is trying to crush me to silence me and prevent me from practicing law.”
The Supreme Court on Monday, separately, dismissed former President Donald Trump’s final case that challenged the results of the Nov. 3 presidential election in Wisconsin.
In dismissing Trump’s final election-related case on the docket (pdf), the Supreme Court did not provide a comment or explanation: “The petitions for writs of certiorari are denied.”
Trump’s lawyers alleged that Wisconsin election officials violated the Constitution by expanding mail-in voting in the midst of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic. The lawsuit asserted that the state’s executive branch arbitrarily rewrote election laws without the consent of Wisconsin’s state Legislature.
It was the last of three petitions filed at the Supreme Court near the end of Trump’s presidency that the justices declined to take up. The court on Feb. 22 turned away Trump’s other two appeals, including a second Wisconsin challenge and one relating to voting in Pennsylvania, another pivotal state during the Nov. 3 election.
