Trump officially notifies Fulton county court of intention to appeal Fani Willis ruling

by | May 16, 2024

Just over a week following an appellate court’s decision to hear the appeal, President Trump formally submitted a filing on Thursday officially informing the court that he is contesting the ruling which permitted Fulton County DA Fani Willis to proceed with prosecuting the case against him and 18 co-defendants accused of conspiring to overturn Georgia's 2020 election ‘outcomes’.

The Georgia Court of Appeals granted Trump and his co-defendants the opportunity to appeal on May 8, allowing them 10 days to file a notice of appeal. Trump officially filed the notice today. This move will shift the case from Fulton County Superior Court to the Court of Appeals.

David Shafer, the former Georgia GOP head, was the initial individual to file a Notice of Appeal. Following suit, Mark Meadows, Rudy Giuliani, Cathy Latham, and Michael Roman have also submitted their appeals, as reported by FOX News. As of now, a hearing date has not been scheduled.
