Donald Trump’s ally Sidney Powell still faces ethical battles with state bars over 2020 prosecution

The Texas State Bar is appealing a judge’s dismissal of her case against Donald Trump ally Sidney Powell, who accused her of ethics violations in her claims challenging the election results 2020 presidential.

Texas State Judge Andrea Bouressa ruled in February that the state bar had failed to present sufficient evidence in its complaint against the Dallas-based attorney.

The state bar last week filed a notice of appeal with a state appeals court for a rehearing of his complaint, Bloomberg reported.

Ms Powell has filed several lawsuits challenging the 2020 election results in the swing states of Georgia, Michigan and Arizona.

She did not respond to a request for comment.

Ms Powell is also facing disciplinary proceedings in Michigan as the Texas State Bar tries to revive her case.

The Michigan Attorneys’ Grievance Board filed a complaint this month with a disciplinary board after a judge ruled against Ms. Powell and other attorneys who challenged the state’s 2020 results. The judge ordered pro-Trump attorneys to pay more than $170,000 to cover the costs of reviewing the claims, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Ms. Powell’s appeal against that ruling is pending in the United States Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit.

Meanwhile, the Michigan Bar is pursuing its ethical claims and will assign pro bono attorneys to review the suspension or discipline case against Ms. Powell and other Trump-aligned lawyers.

Neither the Michigan nor Texas state bar commissions overseeing attorney ethics responded to requests for comment.
