Lin Wood's Ex-Partners Say He's a Fraudster. His Emails May Prove It

Lin Wood agreed to pay his ex-partners an undisclosed amount from former Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann’s settlements. But Wood’s emails allegedly tell another story.

Embattled pro-Trump lawyer Lin Wood could soon be in even more legal hot water, following allegations by former law partners that he lied to a judge and covered up a scheme to steal their share of settlements involving former Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann.

Making matters worse for Wood, his one-time partners say he wrote the alleged scheme down in a series of late-night emails—documents they now have.

While Wood made his name as a lawyer for people like falsely accused Atlanta Olympics bombing suspect Richard Jewell, he’s since faced a series of professional setbacks after pivoting toward hunting vaporous evidence of “voter fraud” and promoting the QAnon conspiracy theory.

In August, a federal judge in Michigan referred Wood, Sidney Powell, and other lawyers involved in a 2020 election case to their state bars for potential suspension or disbarment, and ordered them to pay legal fees that could run into hundreds of thousands of dollars. Wood is already facing an unrelated potential disbarment in his home state of Georgia after refusing to take a mental-health exam.

1. Mishandling settlement funds?

That's an express pass to getting your bar ticket yanked.

3. It's astounding that, in this age of electronics

a fucking lawyer was too stupid to hand over incriminating emails that were requested. Or too arrogant. Did he think his ex-partners wouldn’t look for them? JFC, the balls on this fucking guy.
