Summary

The 2020 Presidential election has generated an unprecedented number of legal challenges, in state and federal courts around the country though primarily in so called ‘swing states.’ These suits, some of which are still being litigated, involve multiple sets of plaintiffs, raise a variety of legal issues, and seek a variety of legal remedies up to and including decertification of state electoral vote tallies and election ‘do-overs.’ Common legal issues in these cases include standing, laches, standards for injunctive relief, mootness, considerations of federalism and separation of powers, equal protection, and even the extent of or appropriateness of original jurisdiction of the United States Supreme Court. Complaints have been filed as well and issues raised concerning alleged violations of lawyers’ obligations under applicable Rules of Professional Responsibility in connection with some of the lawsuits. Two experienced litigators with extensive political experience – one as a Republican and another a Democratic elected representative – will provide an overview of these cases, focusing on these (and other) legal and professionalism issues raised, in an entertaining 90 minute, interactive presentation.
