Georgia prosecutors urge court to reject Trump attempt to disqualify Fani Willis

"Georgia Judge Allows Trump and Co-Defendants to Appeal Ruling on Prosecutor. An appeals court will now decide if it will weigh in on whether Fani T. Willis, the Fulton County district attorney, should be disqualified."

Context

Scott McAfee, the judge in the George election interference case against Trump, recently ruled that District Attorney Fani Willis could stay on the case, despite her relationship with a lead prosecutor she hired. Trump is appealing this decision to the Georgia Court of Appeals. Will this appellate court agree to review McAfee's ruling?

"Under Georgia law, the defense lawyers now have 10 days to file an application to the appeals court...The appeals court will have 45 days from the defense filing to say whether it is going to take the case or not."

Resolution criteria

  • Resolves YES if the Georgia Court of Appeals announces it is going to review the decision

  • Resolves YES even if the court accepts the appeal request and ultimately decides to uphold McAfee's original decision

  • Resolves NO if the court announces they are not taking up the case

  • Resolves NO if the court doesn't comment on the appeal request by the 45 day deadline quoted above
