In case you weren't sure that the legal cases were DOA, the Supreme Court has refused to expedite the outstanding cases before it:

And he went to so much trouble to stuff it full of judges he thought would be loyal. Don't these people understand the nature of deals?

Sixty four court cases post election. Sixty three Trumpist losses. One win: they were able to keep the ballot cure deadline in Pennsylvania to six days, instead of nine.

Sydney Powell got dined in Georgia today for trying to argue a cast while not being on the bar

Also apparently the New York bar is trying to remove Rudy Giuliani

Sorry to be a dry party pooper, and I know it's an entirely different jurisdiction, but I just feel *angry* at the sheer amount of court time wasted on these things, when elsewhere people with real issues are waiting years to get their cases heard, correspondence is backlogged by months etc. It's so f.cking obnoxious (and yes I'm well aware of who we're talking about here, and that the courts are doing what they can to minimize the time wasted).
don't get any big ideas, they're not gonna happen

In this case, it's maybe slightly slowing down SCOTUS hearing cases designed to overturn Roe v Wade, or the ACA...

Likewise, the recess that is stopping the Senate convicting Trump after impeachment is also stopping any more right wing judges getting confirmed.

A happy accident I suppose.

The Trump campaign lawyers a few days ago dropped all their litigation in Georgia just as the first of the cases was about to go back before a judge. Trump's lawyer falsely claimed parties had come to a settlement. They hadn't.
Here grows much rhubarb.
