DNC Fraud Lawsuit Provides Update, Hope
DNC Fraud Lawsuit Provides Update, Hope by Elizabeth Vos – DisObedient Media
Disobedient Media previously reported that the DNC Fraud lawsuit had been dismissed by Judge Zloch. Today, Elizabeth Beck, one of the attorneys for the plaintiffs in the case against the DNC, posted a video update on the suit’s status via social media. The update provided hope for supporters and plaintiffs in the case for the potential that the litigation might continue through the appeals process.
Beck explained that as judge Zloch had dismissed the case on jurisdictional issues, a new case brought in a separate court could potentially use his ruling as “persuasive evidence.” She cited rule four of the civil rules of federal procedure, which she explained states that in a civil case, the notification of appeal required by rule three must be filed with a district clerk within 30 days after entry of the judgement that the order appeared from. She explained that the thirty days will be concluded on September 24th 2017, approximately 3 weeks from now.
Elizabeth Beck went on to say that if no notice of appeal is filed by that time, then there would be no appeal. She recognized that many members of the public have expressed their desire for the case to continue, adding that it is the most viable route going forward, as opposed to new cases being filed. Beck noted that at present there are three law firms involved in this suit, including Beck and Lee. She stated that Cullin O’brien, a Harvard Law grad, and Tony Hernandez are both solo law practitioners with their own firms
She explained that because of the usual terms of plaintiff’s contingency lawyers, the Becks have not been paid throughout the case; Beck emphasized on this point that her statement in that regard was not a complaint, but simply the normal routine procedure in this type of suit. Elizabeth Beck further explained that since the case had been dismissed, no copycat cases had been filed anywhere in the country. She said that the lawyers involved in the suit are in no way obligated to take the case further, and that they have never solicited donations to fund this case; it is not the way plaintiff’s contingency cases work.
