UPDATE: Georgia Judge Scott McAfee Allows Trump to Appeal Fani Willis Disqualification Decision

On Wednesday, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee declared that President Trump and his co-defendants have the option to appeal the Fani Willis disqualification decision.

Last Friday, Judge Scott McAfee ruled that District Attorney Fani Willis can proceed with her RICO case against Trump and his associates.

In a 23-page ruling, Judge McAfee ordered Fani Willis to address the “appearance of impropriety” before the case can move forward. McAfee determined that Willis can remain involved in the case but must dismiss Nathan Wade, her romantic partner and the lead prosecutor she hired to pursue Trump.

Later on Friday afternoon, Nathan Wade stepped down from his role in the RICO case.

The Georgia Court of Appeals has a 45-day window to render a decision regarding any appeal made against the judge’s disqualification order.

Trump’s attorney, Steve Sadow, described Judge McAfee’s decision as “highly significant.”

“The defense is optimistic that appellate review will lead to the case being dismissed and the DA being disqualified,” he said.

As reported by FOX News:

A Georgia judge presiding over the 2020 election interference case against former President Trump announced Wednesday that Trump and his co-defendants can appeal the order that denied the disqualification of embattled DA Fani Wills.

Fulton County Superior Judge Scott McAfee on Wednesday issued a certificate of immediate review, allowing Trump and eight co-defendants to seek an appeal of the order.

The defense now has 10 days to submit an application to the Georgia Court of Appeals, which will have 45 days to decide whether they will hear the case from March 15, when the order was issued. Under Georgia law, the Georgia Court of Appeals is not required to hear the case.

“Upon review of the Defendants’ joint motion for a Certificate of Immediate Review, the Court finds that the Order on the Defendants’ Motions to Dismiss and Disqualify the Fulton County District Attorney issued March 15, 2024, ‘is of such importance to the case that immediate review should be had,'” McAfee said.
