State asks Elsenheimer for summary disposition of Bailey vs. Antrim County

Linda Gallagher

BELLAIRE — The State of Michigan has asked a northern Michigan Circuit Court judge for a summary disposition of a lawsuit against Antrim County claiming that fraud occurred in the county's November 2020 general election. 

Erik Grill, an attorney for Michigan's Attorney General office in Lansing, filed the motion on Friday. The motion, which basically asks 13th Circuit Court Judge Kevin Elsenheimer to vacate and close the case, was supported by Haider Kazim, the attorney representing Antrim County.

As of Tuesday, Elsenheimer had not yet ruled on the motion for summary disposition, which came before a four-hour long hearing held Monday to consider a request filed by the plaintiff's counsel to include election data in the case from four other Michigan counties.
