On July 12, 2021, the federal judge questioned whether Trump-allied attorneys had done their due diligence before filing a lawsuit in Michigan last November in an attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election results, and the federal judge considered sanctions for these attorneys. Washington Post political investigations and enterprise reporter Rosalind Helderman joined CBSN to discuss the hearing, in the video published on July 15, 2021, “Michigan judge blasts “fantastical” election fraud claims“, below:

Lawyers are not suppose to file groundless lawsuits. Therefore, various baseless claims of election fraud may lead to suspension of law license of some attorneys.
Judge Linda Parker questioned the broad claims the lawyers had made alleging fraud and about sworn statements they had submitted to court from supposed witnesses speculating about ballot malfeasance, sometimes based on second- and third-hand chatter. Therefore, much of the six-hour hearing resulted in consideration of whether the Trump-supporting lawyers should be penalized, with the possible consequence of losing their law licenses following their lawsuit to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Ultimately the hearing became a painstaking recounting of the thinness of the claims supporting election fraud, and it came as former President Donald Trump has continued to repeat lies about the election’s result and, in recent days, has rallied fellow Republicans around his claims.
The judge on Monday, July 12, 2021, repeatedly asked how much work the lawyers had done to verify the fraud claims. In response, several argued that they did not need to do that, if the witnesses believed that what they were saying was true. The attorneys who filed the lawsuit argued that fact-finding could be done during the course of the lawsuit. At one point, Parker, sitting in the Eastern District of Michigan, asked the nine lawyers who took part in bringing the lawsuit if they had ever followed up to learn if any of their so-called witnessed actually saw a vote being changed, in the video published on July 13, 2021, “Trump election lawyer faces possible sanctions over thin fraud claims“, below:
