GET ME REWRITE: Trump let off the hook for legal fees by one of the judges he nominated


And whom the U.S. Senate approved 91-5.

Meet Judge Breet H. Ludwig
U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of WI

Bloomberg, 12/6/2021
Ludwig, a Trump appointee, said the flaws in Trump’s frequently shifting case were “not insignificant failings” and that perhaps the case “ought never to have been filed.” Even so, the judge said he wouldn’t have been swayed to award fees even if he did have jurisdiction. 
“Ready, fire, aim is not the preferred approach when litigating constitutional claims in federal court,” Ludwig said. “Nevertheless, in the overall context of this case, the court is unable to conclude that counsel’s conduct multiplied these proceedings in an objectively unreasonable and vexatious manner sufficient to warrant a fee award.”
