Trump campaign loses again in court -- this time to G. Gordon Liddy's son

November 20, 2020
By Sarah Toce

President Donald J. Trump’s campaign lost again in court Friday, this time in Maricopa County.

Judge Mahoney said, “I will be dismissing the complaint with prejudice. I have heard what I needed to hear today.”

Maricopa County lawyer Tom Liddy then defended the county’s election that resulted in President-elect Biden winning the state of Arizona. Liddy is former FBI agent George Gordon Battle Liddy’s son. George was involved in the Watergate scandal as the chief operative in the White House Plumbers unit during the Nixon Administration.

4. So is this, like, 31 or 32 cases that have been tossed?

I lost count.

9. They aren't.

While they don't change the outcome of the election, they both interpretat of election law that are binding in that jurisdiction - and may impact later cases differently than this one.

Both remove flexibiilty of the courts to interpret election law in order to achieve a just result. From that perspective, the first one is more disconcerting than the second - since it rejected implementing the logical consequences that flowed an earlier court decision as to this election.

As a concrete example of why this kind of decision is troubling - Obergefell v. Hodges recognized same gender marriage. One might think that a logical consequence of that decision is that it would be illegal to fire someone for marrying their same-gender partner. That would be an incorrect legal conclusion. (Until the Supreme Court decision this June which - for most employers - prohibits termination based on sexual orientation.
