GEORGIA (January 5, 2021)—Foley & Lardner LLP is not representing any parties seeking to contest the results of the presidential election. In November, the firm made a policy decision not to take on any representation of any party in connection with matters related to the presidential election results.
Our policy did allow our attorneys to participate in observing election recounts and similar actions on a voluntary basis in their individual capacity as private citizens so long as they did not act as legal advisers.
We are aware of, and are concerned by, Ms. Mitchell’s participation in the January 2 conference call and are working to understand her involvement more thoroughly.
Cleta Mitchell, –Partner has resigned from her law firm. She was on the call between President Donald Trump on the January 2, 2021 when the Georgia Secretary of State recorded the call underhandedly when Trump asked the Secretary several questions about the voter fraud in Georgia that he failed to answer and/or lacked knowledge thereof.
