I spent a long time on the phone with Lynn Landes today
Talking about her pro se election paperless ballot case. She has filed her pro se writ of certiorari with the US Supreme Court. She has gone this far without a lawyer.
I can't believe there is not one constitutional lawyer willing to help her with her case.
Any Penn or DC attorneys want the chance of a lifetime?
Help her with her case.
Pass it on.
I am still waiting to hear from the Tennessee Supreme Court about whether they will let me make a direct appeal to them or whether I must go to the Court of Appeals first.
She's amazing isn't she? Am so impressed with what she has done.
Wish I was a constitutional lawyer.
I would think someone would help her with this case now. She has brought it this far.
The statistical odds of getting her writ granted
Are very low. Only a very small percentage of the cases that are appealed to the US Supreme Court are ever accepted for appeal.
But you never know.
Sometimes being pro se gets you more attention and makes your case stand out.
If her case does get accepted, I just can't imagine some constitutional lawyers won't help her out. This really is an honor of a lifetime for most attorneys to get to appear before the Supreme Court.
Statistics can be manipulated.
Just kidding. I wish I could improve her odds somehow. An American hero to me.
If Lynn wants to make a brief request for Legal help - I can pass it on
I don't always agree with Lynn Landes (esp not on her position against absentee ballots and against mathematical analysis of election data), but
if she wants to send me a short request for legal help, I have an email list of volunteer attorneys who want to help with election issues and some of them know other attorneys who've been working on this. What do the attorneys from the Ohio cases say?
I do heartily agee with Lynn's position that no voting system should exist without a VVPB.
I think Lynn feels she can't trust lawyers to help her.
I understand, since no one has helped her yet. But I do think she could use some help. Contact her on her website or call her. Her phone number was on Oped News yesterday.
