Favorito v. Cooney
Favorito v. Cooney, No. 2020CV343938 (Ga. Super. Ct., Fulton Cnty.)
|Case Summary||Petitioners, a Fulton County tabulation observer and several hand count auditors, allege a range of fraud. Petitioners say they detected a sudden 20,000 vote increase for Biden and filed a corresponding report on the phenomenon that went unanswered; observed boxes of ballots containing mostly Biden votes; and believed cast ballots were fraudulent because they were not creased. Petitioners also allege that the incident at State Farm Arena - documented in a viral video where a water main breaks, some staff and reporters leave the premises, and ballot processors then allegedly retrieve and scan suitcases of ballots - violated Georgia law. Petitioners, based on alleged equal protection and due process violations for those voters who had their votes tabulated in the State Farm Arena on the night of November 3, seek an order permitting them to inspect and scan all mail-in ballots for the General Election.|
