City administration lawyers asked the court to remove the disputed documents from the materials of the case on cancellation of election results.
The city of Detroit, Michigan, has asked the court to condemn President Donald Trump’s campaign for disseminating misinformation as part of a legal process concerning the confirmation of election results in a state district.
On Thursday, Trump’s campaign headquarters said they were voluntarily dropping the lawsuit challenging the Michigan election results. They referred to a meeting of Wayne County election officials at which they allegedly refused to accept the election results. The de facto republican members of the election commission did indeed initially refuse to recognize the election results, but then changed their minds after the outbreak of public outrage.
Lawyers representing the municipality of Detroit said that Trump’s campaign headquarters, which challenged the election results in court, included “inaccurate information” in court documents. The lawyers asked the federal judge to remove the contested document from the case file and reprimand the court for providing such documents.
One of Trump’s lawyers stated that the documents submitted to the court did not contain inaccurate information.
