Judge awards $200K in legal costs against Sidney Powell

Daily MailMichigan officials are demanding more than $200,000 in legal fees from pro-Trump lawyers led by Sidney Powell who unsuccessfully tried to overturn the 2020 election result with a lawsuit dismissed as full of conspiracies, it emerged on Thursday.

Last month, U.S. District Judge Linda Parker ruled that state and local election officials could claim reimbursement of their legal fees.

Sometimes legal fees get awarded, usually when the case that was brought is considered to be not only a losing case but such a bad case that it must have been brought in bad faith. The amount seems large, but likely isn't exceptional. The real question is whether the case was actually meritless, or if the judge -- appointed by Obama -- is merely exercising poor judgement about a politically charged situation.
