A Georgia man’s effort to nullify the state’s election results was rejected on Monday in Fulton County Superior Court by Judge Jane Barwick. The loss came the same day as former Trump attorney Sidney Powell failed in court when a federal judge dismissed her “Kraken” lawsuit.
The plaintiff in the superior court case was Coweta County voter John Wood, who was described as the president of the Georgia Voters Alliance, according to 11 Alive. The lawsuit claimed Georgia had “so mismanaged the election process that no one can have faith that one of their most sacred rights under the United States and Georgia Constitutions, voting, is being protected.”
Barwick reportedly rejected Wood’s lawsuit because she ruled that he wasn’t suing the correct people. Russ Willard from the Georgia attorney general’s office argued that based on Georgia Code, the targeting of defendants Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger did not apply in the case.
Barwick said in her ruling that “as Mr. Willard stated, there's not a statutory basis for these named individuals being respondents in this case.”
An additional lawsuit alleging illegal votes were cast in the election was announced Friday on behalf of President Trump and Georgia GOP Chairman David Shafer in Fulton County Superior Court, although it was rejected on Monday because of issues with filing fees and a completed Case Information Form. It is not clear if or when it will be refiled.
The Trump campaign and its allies have failed to make any substantial progress in the legal system to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. The Electoral College meets on Dec. 14.
