21. On the first point that would be a good argument for a lawyer to make
The law does clearly say that a hand count must ordered by a judge or else the votes would be tabulated by machine, considering they run the paper ballot through the machine the judge would most likely consider that a count of the paper ballot even though it is not hand counted.

I will give you the first point though as a really good argument, there does seem to be a conflict with the way the law is written there and a good lawyer may be able to argue that they do not have a real opportunity to inspect each ballot without a hand count. That is very likely one of the arguments Kloppenburg's lawyer will use when arguing for a hand count, we just have to hope the judge accepts that argument.
