State Supreme Court overturns Trump lawyer Lin Wood’s order in favor of booting from practice in Delaware

The Delaware Supreme Court ruled that far-right lawyer L. Lynnwood Jr. had unjustly committed a lawsuit filed in Sussex County Court by a local judge.

A year ago, Wood’s temporary authority to do legal affairs in Delaware was fraudulent and incompetent in legal efforts elsewhere, including Wood, aimed at overturning the presidential election on behalf of former President Donald Trump. Was revoked by a judge in the Sussex County Superior Court for the reason.

Prior to being involved in these legal issues in the November elections, Wood represented Carter Page, a political operative involved in investigating Russia’s intervention in the 2016 presidential election. The page is Oath Inc, the parent company of Yahoo !. Was suing. News, defamation in Sussex County Superior Court.

Wood is not a member of the Delaware Court, but has been granted permission by the Court to represent Page, a common privilege given to outside lawyers in the Delaware Court. The Page proceeding was finally dismissed, but prior to that, Wood’s privilege to file a proceeding in Delaware was revoked by Judge Craig A. Karsnitz of the Sussex County Superior Court.

At that time, Carsnitz determined that Wood was engaged in acts that, if done in other states, in Delaware, violated the rules of professional conduct of Delaware lawyers. Karsnitz quoted Wood-related proceedings in Georgia and Wisconsin.

“Although outside my jurisdiction, Mr Wood’s actions have shown the mentality, prejudice, and incredible incompetence of toxic stews,” Carsnitz wrote, revoking Wood’s authority to practice in Delaware.

The order cited a long list of flaws, mistakes and falsehoods in the proceedings that Wood tried to overturn the election results in Georgia and Wisconsin. These proceedings were immediately withdrawn in these states. Some have been appealed.

Karsnitz has not made a decision on any particular breach of professional conduct, but the people practicing in front of him are “sufficient personality” and “act with sufficient politeness and integrity.” It is necessary to guarantee that it will be done.

Original ruling: A Delaware judge has appointed a Trump-backed lawyer from the district court for “amazing incompetence.”

Karsnitz also quoted a tweet by Wood. This includes Wood’s request for the arrest and execution of former Vice President Mike Pence. Carsnitz said the tweet was likely to have contributed to the instigation of the January 6 riots by Trump supporters who hijacked the US Capitol.

Wood and Ron Polokin, on behalf of Wood, appealed the order and claimed that they were not lawyers who signed Wisconsin law, but plaintiffs and not lawyers in the Georgia proceedings. Wood denied seeking to mislead anyone through the proceedings and said police lawyers had not been sanctioned in any way by the authorities in these states.

Wood also sought to revoke the court’s permission to handle the Page case in Delaware before Karsnitz issued the order.

The Delaware Supreme Court said in its ruling that the Georgia state or federal court had never ruled that Wood’s complaint was frivolous or dishonest. The Supreme Court said Wood’s failure to answer allegations about his impact on the January 6 riots indicates an “unfair process.”

The court noted that Karsnitz tried to cast an obsession on Wood’s character, which was not supported by evidence of records leading up to Karsnitz’s decision.

The Supreme Court should ask the lower court to show a lawyer why he should not revoke his temporary authority to file a proceeding in Delaware when the lawyer is accused of serious misconduct elsewhere. Said that.

However, like Wood, allegations of illegal activity in another state have not been ruled, and the alleged illegal activity did not adversely affect the Delaware proceedings, and the lawyer agreed to dismiss himself. In that case, the court approved the lawyer and the Supreme Court ruled.
