A federal judge has ordered the attorneys behind a Michigan lawsuit seeking to overturn the 2020 election results to face sanctions, including referrals for potential disbarment.
U.S. District Judge Linda Parker issued the orders in response to motions for sanctions filed by lawyers for the city of Detroit and the state of Michigan over the quickly rejected election challenge. Her order affects lawyers Sidney Powell, Lin Wood, Howard Kleinhendler, Greg Rohl, Julia Haller, Scott Hagerstrom, Brandon Johnson, Stefanie Lynn Junttila and Emily Newman. These are the first sanctions issued against Powell and her team of attorneys.
