GA: Appeals court indefinitely pauses disgraced former president’s attempted election theft trial

Source: CNN

“A Georgia appeals court has halted the election subversion conspiracy case against Donald Trump and several of his co-defendants – a massive victory for the former president seeking to push further legal issues until 2025 if he can’t beat them altogether. The new order filed on Wednesday from the Georgia Court of Appeals is the latest indication that a trial in the state-level Georgia election subversion case will not occur before the 2024 presidential election. The court said the case will be on hold until a panel of judges rules on whether Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis should be disqualified. The appeals court is expected to rule on the disqualification issue by March 2025, though it could issue a ruling sooner.” (06/05/24)
