An election hearing before a Trump-appointed judge is ongoing in the Northern District of Georgia—and has Zoom access.— Adam Klasfeld (@KlasfeldReports) November 19, 2020
I'll be covering it for @LawCrimeNews.
Other reporters whom I see live-tweeting include @MikeSacksEsq and @AlanFeuer. https://t.co/Iqa5WF57Sj
Up now is recount auditor Susan Voyles, whose testimony is about her being "amazed" about how many more votes Biden got than Trump.— Adam Klasfeld (@KlasfeldReports) November 19, 2020
One batch she described came from the Quality Living Center, which appears to refer to a senior center. https://t.co/Z1RT1gFgmR

That would be: no.
Hamilton: Plaintiff alleges a "generalized grievance" rather than a "particularized harm."— Adam Klasfeld (@KlasfeldReports) November 19, 2020

So. Much. Winning.
I know these are elections suits, with very tight timelines, or they become moot; but that is head spinningly fast. And ending, again, on a lighter note:
New: A judge has dismissed the Arizona GOP's challenge to the state's election. This case lasted one week. https://t.co/DudkxeylSm— Jan Wolfe (@JanNWolfe) November 19, 2020
