Two Georgia Defendants Granted Hearing Regarding Motion to Transfer to Federal Court



Two of the three Georgia Republicans charged as false electors for Donald Trump in the state after the 2020 election have been granted September hearings to hear arguments on having their cases moved to federal court. U.S. District Judge Steve Jones ordered a Sept. 20 evidentiary hearing for David Shafer and Cathleen Latham, who argued to have their cases removed from state court since they took orders from Trump and federal officials. A third defendant, Shawn Still, is also seeking removal but has not heard back from the court. The defendants are among 16 charged who allegedly served as fake electors in Georgia. Their attorneys argue that they were directed by federal officials and should therefore be immune from state prosecution. Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who is also seeking removal from state court, testified for three hours and a ruling on his bid is expected soon. Latham and Shafer are facing multiple charges related to conspiracy, forgery, false statements, and impersonation.
