UPDATE: The temporary restraining order is dissolved. The motion to dismiss was granted by the judge. I’m sure that Powell will appeal the decision.

This hearing is an attempt to convince a judge to allow outside experts to examine Dominion Voting Systems machines in Georgia.
U.S. District Judge Timothy Batten Sr., a George W. Bush appointee, scheduled the hearing after an appeals court dismissed an appeal from the plaintiffs, who are being represented by Sidney Powell and other lawyers.
Batten last month ordered three counties not to wipe or rest their voting machines as he weighed whether to grant the plaintiffs’ request to have independent experts look at the machines. Powell argued the order was insufficient and appealed to the the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit for a statewide block.
The appeals court ultimately denied that appeal, setting up the 10 a.m. hearing on Monday.
