L. Lin Wood vs GA Secretary of State

By Danita Knickerbocker

Prominent Defamation Lawyer L. Lin Wood has represented, with great success, some of the highest profile names falsely attacked by the mainstream media in the last 30 years. Nick Sandmann (1) and Richard Jewell (2) being two of the most notable successes. L. Lin Wood is now being painted by that same mainstream media that unwarrantedly attacked his clients, as a conspiracy theorist simply for taking evidence presented to him, and filing legal cases challenging the validity of the 2020 US Presidential Election, that is being questioned by millions of Americans due to said evidence that Wood possesses.

Just a small percentage of the accusations made against Wood, by the mainstream media, at this point, include:

  1. “How Richard Jewell’s Lawyer Became a Pro-Trump Conspiracy Theorist” Jeremy Peters and Alan Feuer titled their article on 12.29.2020 (3)
  2. “The GOP has begun to distance itself from Lin Wood after some wild rants. But this QAnon-friendly conspiracy theorist is exactly where the party is headed…” Ryan Grenoble says on 01.04.2021 (4)
  3. “Lin Wood, the prominent Atlanta attorney who filed a series of suits disputing President Donald Trump’s loss in last year’s election and promoted false QAnon-related conspiracy theories about Chief Justice John Roberts…” Josh Gerstein says on 01.25.2021 (5)
  4. “Lin Wood, Pro-Trump Lawyer and Conspiracy Theorist, Says Georgia Bar May Strip Law License” Darragh Roche titles his article on 01.29.2021 (6)

Even with all of these claims from the mainstream media and prominent public servants of this great country, as of December 11, 2020, L. Lin Wood’s case against ‘Brad Raffensperger, Georgia Secretary of State, et al.’ challenging the legality of Georgia’s election process using QR codes instead of human language and manmade markers, has officially been docketed by the United States Supreme Court, and has been set for conference in the SCOTUS on February 19, 2020. (7)

The significance of L. Lin Wood’s case being chosen to be heard by the SCOTUS, points to the possibility that the evidence that Wood presented was considered valid in one or multiple of the factors that the SCOTUS considers when choosing cases.

According to findlaw.com, (8) the SCOTUS receives around 10,000 petitions for certiorari per year, but typically only have time for 80 cases per year. They consider several different factors when deciding which cases to hear, and here are just 2 of those factors:

  1. The Court will hear cases to resolve a Conflict of Law: The U.S. judicial system consists of 13 federal circuits and 50 state supreme courts. When a number of these courts reach different conclusions about an issue of federal or constitutional law, the Supreme Court may step in and decide the law so that all areas of the country can then operate under the same law.
  2. The Court will hear cases that are Important: Sometimes the Court will consider a highly unusual case such as U.S. v Nixon (concerning the Watergate tapes) or Bush v. Gore (concerning the extremely close election in 2000), or a case with an important social issue, such as abortion in Roe v. Wade.

To read both L. Lin Wood’s 150-page argument (9) as petitioner, and Brad Raffensperger’s 7-page argument (10) as defendant, please refer to the sources below.
