Previous Trump lawyer Sidney Powell’s newest authorized submitting cites Excitement Lightyear

Sidney Powell is evidently hoping she’s acquired a pal in the court docket technique.

The legal professional who served on former President Donald Trump’s authorized crew in its unsuccessful initiatives to overturn the results of the 2020 election is back again in court docket, as Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) is motioning for sanctions in reaction to “meritless” election lawsuits, in accordance to Business Insider.

Powell’s crew in a new submitting argued the movement is “without jurisdiction and is untimely.” And as BuzzFeed News‘ Zoe Tillman claimed, they also made the decision to cite clearly the best legal mind of our time: Toy Tale‘s Buzz Lightyear.

“Defendant would have this Courtroom make new law, create an exception for a baseless and premature motion, which — with no precedent in the circumstance legislation or any rule — could increase the time for submitting a sanctions motion ‘to infinity and beyond’ to harass a plaintiff in what quantities to absolutely nothing extra than political grandstanding,” the submitting reads.
