There will be a press conference immediately following the court hearing in Henry County Georgia at around 3:30 PM ET.
A court hearing will take place in Henry County Superior Court on Monday, July 19th at 1:30 pm ET regarding the U.S. Senate runoff election in Georgia, certified in January of 2021.
The lawsuit, brought by Atlanta resident Mike Daugherty back in January contests the certifications of Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock as the winners of the election for Georgia’s U.S. Senate seats and seeks a new election conducted on paper ballots under Ga. Code 21-2-334.
Listed defendants include Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, Jon Ossoff, Raphael Warnock, Fulton, DeKalb, and Coffee County Election Boards, as well as the Georgia State Election Board.
The lawsuit alleges the results of this election do not accurately reflect the intent of eligible voters in Georgia and therefore should be overturned. The lawsuit points to significant misconduct, legal irregularities committed by election officials, procedural violations, and security breaches surrounding electronic voting equipment, among other things.
A joint press conference will immediately follow the hearing outside the courtroom. In attendance will be former State Representative Vernon Jones, an election integrity advocate, as well as Mr. Mike Daugherty, and others involved in the case. (Note: Rep. Jones is not affiliated with this legal filing)
