Lin Wood has been very vocal about the idea that the election was stolen, even claiming that Donald Trump is still the President of the United States. However, he’s now trying to distance himself from a case in Michigan — during a hearing to determine whether sanctions are appropriate.
Lw & Crime reports that the hearing Monday was to determine whether affidavits in the case warranted sanctions on the attorneys involved. This specific case is about the election challenges in Michigan, but across the country, pro-Trump attorneys have been accused of using false or misleading information to give an appearance of election fraud, but have told judges that they aren’t alleging election fraud.
Political reporter Andrew Feinberg, live-tweeting the hearing, shared that Wood had made a concerted effort to distance himself from this case, claiming that the court lacked jurisdiction to sanction him for his involvement, because he never applied for local admission to practice and didn’t sign the documents, though he has also publicly alleged that widespread election fraud changed the outcome of the 2020 election.
Wood: "Regardless of whether there was some misunderstanding about why my name got put on there. Each lawyer will affirm to you that I did not have any input into any one of these pleadings or affidavits and I was not asked to have any input into them."

In fact, Lin Wood had already given this response previously, on his Telegram page, declaring in February that he had nothing to do with cases n Michigan and that it would be ‘impossible’ for him to be sanctioned there.
According to Feinberg, Judge Parker has invited Wood to submit a brief explaining why she wouldn’t have jurisdiction over him.
Wood is also facing possible disciplinary measures from the Georgia State Bar, where he has responded by asking his fans to dig up dirt on Disciplinary Board members to help his case.
