“Its insufficiency as a legal claim was clear from the start. No reasonable lawyer would have filed it. Intended for a political purpose, none of the counts of the amended complaint stated any discernible legal claim.

The purpose of such sanctions is to hopefully deter other lawyers from filing frivolous lawsuits on Trump’s behalf. The same judge quashed the lawsuit when he initially dismissed it, and attorneys who have filed lawsuits in other states based on Trump’s big lie have also been sanctioned.
