Georgia Runoff Election Challenge #5

Wood v. Raffensperger

Lawsuit filed by pro-Trump lawyer and conspiracy theorist L. Lin Wood ahead of the Georgia Senate runoff elections challenging multiple aspects including signature verification procedures, the early processing of mail-in ballots and the use of electronic voting machines. After the district court denied Wood’s motion for a temporary restraining order and dismissed the case, and the U.S. Supreme Court denied his emergency petition, he appealed to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The 11th Circuit affirmed the district court’s dismissal, holding that Wood did not have standing to bring the claims. Wood then filed a petition for writ of certiorari with the Supreme Court to appeal this ruling. The Supreme Court denied the petition.

This case was one of the lawsuits former President Donald Trump and his allies brought in an effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
