(PartiallyPolitics.com) On Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Donald Middlebrooks voted against former President Donald Trump in the case he brought against Hillary Clinton. Trump was claiming that Hilton had been part of a conspiracy seeking to harm his 2016 presidential election.
In the 46-page ruling, Middlebrooks claimed that Trump and his lawyer, Alina Habba, were misusing the court in pursuit of “frivolous lawsuits” against those that Trump considered his enemies. In this particular suit, Trump targeted 31 different defendants. Outside of Hilton, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and many FBI figures were noted as having been part of the plot to have Trump associated with Russia in 2016.
The lawsuit had originally been dismissed in September, but now Middlebrooks have determined that Trump and Habba should be required to spend close to $1 million in sanctions and legal fees for bringing these unsubstantiated claims to court.
Middlebrooks continued on to write that this case should have been never brought to court, as there was not enough evidence for any “reasonable lawyer” to have chosen to file it. This shows in Middlebrooks’s eyes that the lawsuit was only a part of a political game.
The suit was originally filed in the District Court for the Southern District of Florida in March 2022, which is a clear indication that Trump had no intention of letting things related to Clinton go, despite the fact that seven years have passed since they faced each other in the presidential election.
Clinton’s own lawyer, Nick Merrill had previously disclosed that he found this entire lawsuit “nonsense.”
