BREAKING: Judge Halts Dominion Memory Wipe in Georgia

UPDATE November 29, 2020 @ 5:31pm EST: Judge Timothy C. Batten, Sr. has since rescinded this order, updating it shortly after making it. The new order states:

Plaintiffs seek a temporary restraining order to impound and preserve the voting machines in the State of Georgia, and to prevent any wiping of data. However, Plaintiffs’ request fails because the voting equipment that they seek to impound is in the possession of county election officials. Any injunction the Court issues would extend only to Defendants and those within their control, and Plaintiffs have not demonstrated that county election officials are within Defendants’ control. Defendants cannot serve as a proxy for local election officials against whom the relief should be sought.

ORIGINAL CONTENT:

Georgia Judge Timothy C. Batten, Sr. has issued an order on Sunday to halt the memory wiping and software reset of Dominion voting machines.

Attorney Lin Wood made the announcement on Sunday: “Defendants are ordered to maintain the statue quo & are temporarily enjoined from wiping or resetting any voting machines in the State of Georgia until further order of the Court.

The order comes after an emergency motion was filed which seeks relief of, among other things, “an emergency declaratory judgement that voting machines be seized and impounded immediately for a forensic audit by plantiff’s experts.

Attorney Lin Wood stated that Georgia officials were performing a software update and “scrubbing the machines” ahead of the pending litigation.

The order reads:

In addition, Plaintiffs contend that Union County officials have advised that they are going to wipe or reset the voting machines of all data and bring the count back to zero on Monday, November 30. To the extent Plaintiffs seek a temporary restraining order to preserve the voting machines in the State of Georgia, and to prevent any wiping of data, their motion is granted. Defendants are ordered to maintain the status quo and are temporarily enjoined from wiping or resetting any voting machines in the State of Georgia until further order of the Court.
