In a new filing on May 15, Georgia prosecutors asked Judge Robert McBurney of the Fulton County Superior Court to dismiss or deny motions by former President Donald J. Trump and “alternate” elector Cathy Latham that sought to quash the final report of a special grand jury investigation into efforts to overturn the result of the 2020 presidential election. 

The filing also responded to efforts by Trump and Latham to disqualify Fulton County district attorney Fani Willis from prosecuting the case and to block the use of evidence collected by the special grand jury during its eight-month investigation.“Overall, the Motions are procedurally flawed and advance arguments that lack merit, and the State respectfully requests that this Court retain supervision of this matter and dismiss or deny the Motions as appropriate without a hearing,” Willis wrote.

Monday’s filing is the latest in Willis’s long-running investigation into whether Trump and his allies violated state law as they attempted to reverse the former President’s 2020 election loss in Georgia. Last month, Willis indicated she would announce indictment decisions as early as mid-July.
