I read earlier today that “sources” said that Trump didn’t plan to appeal to the so-called Supreme Court, so I figured that because they always lie, that could mean that he would appeal at the last minute.
But apparently the week has come and gone, and the 11th Circuit formalized their ruling this afternoon. Oh, to have been a fly on that wall as his attorneys beat him into submission, as they surely must have had to do.
So if I understand this correctly, the whole special master debacle has officially gotten the kibosh, for real. Ding dong, at least that is dead. No one is probably happier than Judge Dearie. I hope no one is sadder than the corrupt hack judge who managed to delay things for months.
Update: The 11th Circuit's decision dismissing Trump's Mar-a-Lago lawsuit against DOJ and voiding the Special Master process is officially enforced as Trump's team has yet to appeal the ruling.
The 11th Circuit now sends its mandate to dismiss the lawsuit.
