On Tuesday, the Supreme Court declined to reverse sanctions imposed on a number of attorneys who were in collusion with former President Trump and filed a meritless lawsuit contesting the results of the 2020 presidential election in Michigan.

In November 2020, the lawsuit was initiated by attorneys Sidney Powell, Lin Wood, and others against state officials of Michigan and Detroit.

It was one of dozens of lawsuits filed in states where Trump had lost an attempt to establish the illegitimacy of election results.

All efforts were ineffective, and there was no indication of pervasive fraud discovered.

U.S. District Judge Linda Parker of the Eastern District of Michigan imposed sanctions on the Trump-aligned attorneys subsequent to the dismissal of the case.

In addition to repaying the attorney fees accrued by Michigan state officials and Detroit during the sanctions proceedings, the Trump attorneys were mandated to attend legal education courses.

The majority of those sanctions were upheld by a federal appeals panel the previous year, prompting Powell, Wood, and the remaining attorneys to petition the Supreme Court for relief.
