Powell, Wood Say Not Signing Docs Means No Disbarment
Law360 (January 20, 2021, 4:25 PM EST) -- Sidney Powell and other attorneys facing discipline after challenging Michigan's 2020 election results have told a federal court they should not be referred for disbarment over frivolous filings in the case, claiming they didn't sign the pleadings or formally appear in the matter.
The names of Powell, L. Lin Wood and other attorneys appear at the bottom of several filings in the Eastern District of Michigan case. In more than one instance, a filing includes "/s/ Sidney Powell" as an electronic signature. Yet the backers of former President Donald Trump told the court Tuesday they did not sign the documents.
