Lake v. Hobbs — Amicus Brief in support of motion to recall mandate

Jeremiah Morgan Election Law, U. S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit

Today, we filed an amicus brief in the Ninth Circuit in support of Arizona candidates Kari Lake and Mark Finchem’s motion to recall the mandate for fraud on the court. Our amicus brief discussed the key role the judiciary plays in protecting free and fair elections. When an elected official in charge of supervising elections is then a candidate in another election, the courts must take a particularly close look. Nemo iudex in causa sua: no one is judge in their own cause. Misrepresentations during litigation to cover up electoral wrongdoing can never be permitted.

Update: On June 17, 2024, the Ninth Circuit granted leave for our amicus brief to be filed.
