Georgia Election Interference Case Against Trump Halted by Appeals Court

An appeals court has halted the Georgia election interference case against former President Donald Trump and others while it reviews the lower court judge’s ruling allowing Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to remain on the case.

The Georgia Court of Appeals’ order prevents Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee from moving forward with pretrial motions while the appeal is pending. This delay makes it even less likely that the case will go to trial before the November general election, where Trump is expected to be the Republican nominee for president.

A Fulton County grand jury indicted Trump and 18 others in August, accusing them of attempting to overturn the 2020 presidential election in Georgia. Four defendants have pleaded guilty, while Trump and the others have pleaded not guilty.

Trump and eight other defendants sought to remove Willis from the case, alleging a conflict of interest due to her romantic relationship with special prosecutor Nathan Wade.
