The Court Has Issued Summons to McConnell related to Garland Nomination

New York City [09/17/2019]:

On 09/03/2019, Equal Vote America Corp. (EVA) has filed a civil lawsuit against Mitch McConnell and Charles Grassley at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York (CASE # 1:19-cv-08178) because of their complete obstruction of Chief Judge Garland’s nomination to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court during 2016. 

Today, the District Court has duly issued the summon to the two named defendants:

The case has been assigned to District Court Judge Denise L Cote, who has ordered the initial conference to be held on November 22nd, 2019 at 11:30 A.M. in Courtroom 18B, 500 Pearl Street, New York, NY 10007. The court session is open to the public, first come first seated.

As of today, more than 6,500 Fellow Americans have signed the Online Affidavit to join as co-plaintiffs. This has become the largest grass-root ordinary citizenry legal action to defend our constitutional rights for due process and equal protection of laws in our country’s history.

Multiple news sources reported on 05/28/2019 and 09/03/2019 that McConnell said the Republican-controlled Senate would fill an opening seat on the Supreme Court of the United States if there is an opening seat in 2020. This is in stark contrast with McConnell’s complete blockade of the Garland nomination by President Obama. Aside from the obvious hypocrisy and partisan power grab, McConnell’s own words added further evidence to support our lawsuit.

The Redress we are seeking is for the Court to Review and Declare that:
