Governor of Wisconsin, Tony Evers asked a federal court to make some moves and to force lawyer Sidney Powell and her client, President Donald Trump to pay legal fees, something more than $106.000, regarding the state’s election results.
“A message must be sent that this type of behavior cannot be tolerated in the judicial system and that attorneys should avoid these types of frivolous attempts to disenfranchise voters in the future,” attorneys for Evers said in court papers that were filed last week.
“This litigation imposed significant costs on the taxpayers of Wisconsin,” the attorneys stated about Trump in separate court papers. “Those costs were needless because Trump’s suit never had any merit, this litigation was precluded by exclusive state-court proceedings, and the costs were exacerbated by strategic choices made by Trump and his lawyers.”
“We deny the claims,” said William Bock, a lawyer from Trump’s legal team. “They’re attacking in the pleadings my motives and the motives of my partners, of which they know nothing. The statements made about our motives were absolutely false.”
“The case is closed,” Powell stated, saying that Evert’s request before the court was “baseless, improper, and out of time.”
One of Powell’s mandamus petitions had stated: “A submission directly to this Court seeking an extraordinary writ of mandamus is unusual, but it has its foundation. While such relief is rare, this Court will grant it ‘where a question of public importance is involved, or where the question is of such a nature that it is peculiarly appropriate that such action by this Court should be taken.’”
In February, Powell announced that she launched a super PAC dedicated to freedom of speech, constitutional rights, and fair elections.
“The American people deserve a voice that exposes and rejects the self-interest of political parties, the control of tech giants, and the lies of the fake news,” she announced at the time of the creation of her Restore the Republic Super PAC.
Powell had filed a number of third-party, election-related lawsuits following the Nov. 3, 2020, contest in a bid to help Trump. She appeared alongside then-Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis at a news conference in November last year before Giuliani confirmed about a week later that she wasn’t part of their team.
