Marc Elias. longtime Hillary lawyer and DNC liar for hire who has fought voter ID laws all across the country and the man who commissioned the fake Steele dossier and his law firm has been sanctioned by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals for ethical violations.
Elias was sanctioned by Texas federal appeals judges for a “redundant and misleading submission” and for violating his ethical “duty of candor” to the court.
Elias filed an addendum to a court case involving straight-ticket voting that Democrats opposed before the 2020 election. But, he hid one important fact from the court.
The addendum was exactly the same as he had filed earlier that was rejected but that he did not inform the court about.
For their criminal behavior, Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie were hit with having to pay for attorney fees and double the court costs and requires them to take a course in legal ethics.
The Washington Examiner reported yesterday:
A top Democratic election lawyer was smacked with sanctions by Texas federal appeals judges for a “redundant and misleading submission” and for violating his ethical “duty of candor” to the court in a case in which the Democratic Party was fighting against a state law that banned straight-ticket voting.
Marc Elias, a lawyer for Perkins Coie who is well known for his election fights during the 2020 contest and for hiring the opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which hired British ex-spy Christopher Steele in 2016, was criticized and punished by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit on Thursday, along with a number of his colleagues.
Judge Edith Clement, nominated by former President George W. Bush in 2001, and Judge Jennifer Elrod, nominated by Bush in 2007, both ordered Elias and his associates to be sanctioned, while Judge Catharina Haynes, another 2007 Bush nominee, did not.
“Appellees did not notify the court that their latest motion to supplement the record filed on February 10, 2021 was nearly identical to the motion to supplement the record filed several months ago by the same attorneys, on September 29, 2020. Critically, Appellees likewise failed to notify the court that their previous and nearly identical motion was denied,” the judges ruled. “This inexplicable failure to disclose the earlier denial of their motion violated their duty of candor to the court.”
It’s a real shame that 97.6% of Democratic lawyers give the rest a bad name.
They have the ethics of an alley cat.
They are the ones who make sure there is a two-tier justice system.
Elias is the one who hired Fusion GPS and subsequently Christopher Steele and his phony dossier.
