Judge allows Co-defendant in Trump Georgia election case to seek immediate appeal

Fulton County Sheriff’s office

Harrison Floyd, a co-defendant in the Georgia 2020 election interference case, has been granted the opportunity to seek a hearing before the state's appellate court after his legal team's arguments for dismissing the case on procedural grounds were repeatedly denied by trial court judge Scott McAfee.

In an order issued on Monday, Judge McAfee granted Floyd a certificate of immediate review, citing Georgia law and emphasizing the significance of the issue to the case. This legal document allows Floyd to request an immediate hearing before Georgia's Court of Appeals to review McAfee's rulings without having to wait until after a verdict is reached in the case.

Monday's court order marks the second certificate of immediate review granted in the case.

The decision now rests with the appellate court, which has approximately two months to decide whether to address the issue.

Judge McAfee also quietly modified Floyd’s bond conditions in an order dated February 23, allowing Floyd to work for Trump’s 2024 campaign. Floyd wrote on the social media site X that he had only recently been informed of this change, a month after the conditions were modified.
