ABC News: Fulton County DA to Appeal Ruling That Dismissed 6 Counts in Trump’s Georgia Election Case

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis filed a notice of appeal on a March ruling dismissing six counts in the Georgia election interference case against Donald Trump and others. Known as a cross-appeal, this notice of appeal comes after the appeals court already agreed to take up Trump and his co-defendants’ appeal over their efforts to disqualify Willis from the case.

According to Chris Timmons, a former prosecutor and ABC News contributor, the state essentially had an open opportunity to appeal, because the Court of Appeals is already looking at the case as it relates to the disqualification issue.

“Here, because the Court of Appeals is already taking the case, the State has nothing to lose from cross-appealing,” said Timmons. “It won’t take any longer for the case to be decided.”
