Washington Supreme Court orders $28k sanctions in baseless election lawsuit
June 7, 2022
OLYMPIA — Attorney General Bob Ferguson announced June 1 that his office successfully sought sanctions from a group pursuing a frivolous legal challenge of the 2020 election, along with its attorney. The sanctions order comes after Ferguson defeated the frivolous lawsuit.
The Washington Election Integrity Coalition United (WEICU) has been ordered to pay $9,589, and its attorney, Virginia Shogren, has been ordered to pay $18,796 as sanctions for bringing a case totally devoid of legal merit.
Ferguson will also file a complaint against Shogren with the Washington State Bar Association...
