Michigan AG Dana Nessel Wants to Punish Attorneys Who Dispute the Election Results

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is seeking to punish attorneys who filed legal suits that question the results of the 2020 election.

Nessel has stated that she will be pursuing legal sanctions against lawyers who introduced lawsuits alleging voting irregularities in the November elections.

The Michigan AG has disclosed that she will be filing the complaints with the Attorney Grievance Commission because she believes the lawsuits deliberately included misinformation.

According to a report by Michigan Radio, Nessel stated: “You know if you will have your name attached to it, and you have made intentional misrepresentations of facts to the court, I absolutely believe that you ought to be held accountable.”

We will be asking for sanctions. We’ll be asking for court costs and attorney’s fees,” she said.

Nessel also stated that she will seek sanctions against “any” attorney whose name was included on the lawsuits, even filing complaints in other states.

Some of these cases where we know for a fact there were intentional misrepresentations made — the kind of misrepresentation that there is no question of fact that these were inaccurate statements that were presented to the court — yes, myself and also Secretary Benson, will be filing complaints to the attorney grievance commission,” Nessel said in a report by the Detroit News.

The City of Detroit is also pursuing sanctions against lawsuits brought in their district. The City, along with an attorney for Wayne County voter Robert Davis, filed a motion last week requesting sanctions against attorneys who represented six Michigan Republicans who questioned election procedures.

The filing requests the Court to sanction “the egregious conduct of the plaintiffs and their attorneys for making clearly frivolous arguments and using the judicial system to obtain unprecedented relief, to satisfy plaintiffs’ selfish and destructive political agendas.”

The city of Detroit is seeking to bar the attorneys from practicing in the Eastern District, imposition of monetary penalties, and also includes a requirement that parties to the lawsuits must post a bond of $100,000 before filing any other actions related to the cases.
