After months of litigation, The DNC Fraud Lawsuit has been dismissed by Judge Zloch. Lawyers Jared and Elizabeth Beck have long cited deep corruption of the judicial system as a potential reason for the suit’s dismissal. The ruling comes as a blow to many former Bernie Sanders supporters who had hoped that the suit would address what many view as deeply seated corruption in the Democratic party establishment.

In his ruling, Judge Zloch wrote that the plaintiffs had failed to prove their injury, calling it “too diffuse” for Federal court. Despite the dismissal, Zloch did state that the court assumed the basic claim made by the plaintiffs to have been true; that the DNC acted against Bernie Sanders and in favor of Hillary Clinton despite outward claims of neutrality.

Disobedient Media has provided coverage on the case during the last few months, including statements made by the Becks which indicated deep concern after the death of their process server Shawn Lucas. The case took an ominous turn after the Beck’s offices received a series of disturbing calls, one of which was traced to a number matching Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s office in Aventura. A motion seeking legal protection for the Becks, those associated with the case and their plaintiffs was later dismissed.

This dismissal comes amidst increasingly turbulent scandal surrounding former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her involvement with Imran Awan, an IT staffer for leading Democrats, who was arrested while attempting to flee the country for Pakistan. Fox News also connected the Awan brothers scandal to the DNC fraud lawsuit when they aired allegations that the Awans may have participated in the voice-modulated call made from Shultz’ office to the Becks.

There had been some speculation that the potential for discovery in the DNC lawsuit could have revealed damaging information beyond the issue of Bernie Sanders having been cheated out of the nomination during the Democratic primary last year. Many have argued that the case had the potential to shed light on the death of Seth Rich, and possibly disprove the Russian hacking narrative if the case had gone forward.  

The news has been met with outrage by many, who view the ruling as a final indictment against the judicial system and any pretense of a functioning American democracy. For many, this news serves as a final indication that American democracy is not only dead, but figuratively buried in a shallow grave, and forgotten.

68 Thoughts on “BREAKING: DNC Fraud Lawsuit Dismissed”

  • It’s clear that they do not need us, as the DNC lawyer put it. “We could have voluntarily decided that, ‘Look, we’re gonna go into back rooms like they used to and smoke cigars and pick the candidate that way,’” Bruce Spiva, lawyer for the DNC, said during a court hearing in Carol Wilding, et al. v. DNC Services Corp.

    • Erwin, do you know that Bernie Sanders was NOT a Democrat/never joined the Democratic Party? He simply declared he was running on the Democratic ticket……He retained his registration as an Independent because he had to since he was a sitting senator as an Independent according to Vermont election laws……..No one has proven DNC hurt Sanders, but can you blame them for not liking the fact this interloper who has railed against the Dem Party for decades, was able to access the resources that DEMOCRATS paid for, and totally screw up OUR Democratic election process?

  • Everyone who donated to Bernie was defrauded. I don’t understand how a court could say they weren’t financially damaged because the DNC had it fixed so he couldn’t win.

  • Wow! Talk about fake news. Either you have no experience with court findings or you intentionally tried to mislead your readers.

    When the court said it assumed the allegations were true, it added a qualifier – “at this stage.” In other words, even if the court assumed the allegations were true, it had to determine whether the plaintiffs had standing/suffered harm. The part you left out was at the end of the same paragraph when the court wrote “the truth of their claims cannot be tested in this Court.”

    • The irony of your comment escapes you.
      The judge dismissed the case without prejudice.
      That means they can refile the case so they do have standings the next go around.

  • Friday 8/25 Judge Zloch Dismissed without Prejudice — ie. open door to refile suit within the ROAD MAP GUIDELINES he provided in his Dismissal Document. Read it. Watch Elizabeth Beck’s discussion this evening regarding going forward with the case. They are a young family, fighting for OUR DEMOCRACY, IT’S OUR OBLIGATION TO CROWDSOURCE THEM THROUGH LEGAL CHANNELS.

    DEMOCRACY DIES WHEN GOOD PEOPLE DO NOTHING …. SEND them cash & checks

    • You might want to do some research before you waste your money. The plaintiffs have to prove they were harmed. Read the Order. Do you see any way they can prove they were personally harmed?

        • Not true, Kevin. Read the court’s order. Case was dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction…………. “Plaintiffs have not ‘present[ed] a
          live case or controversy,’ and the Court ‘must dismiss the case for
          lack of subject matter jurisdiction.'”

      • DIANE, WHEN YOU SPEND YOUR MONEY ON SOMETHING YOU WERE TOLD BY THE SELLER IT WAS AND THEN YOU GET IT HOME AND IT TURNS OUT TO NOT BE WHAT THE SELLER SAID IT WAS, THEN YOU GET YOUR MONEY BACK.. THAT WAS HOW EVERY SANDERS SUPPORTER WAS HARMED.. YOU HAVE NOT DONE VERY MUCH RESEARCH ON THIS ISSUE HAVE YOU? AGAIN HERE IS JUST ONE OF THE MANY WAYS THE DNC RIGGED THE PRIMARY FOR HILLARY.. THE DNC FOUND OUT THAT THE MORE PEOPLE SEEN AND HEARD TALK THE MORE PEOPLE CHANGED THEIR MINDS AND WHEN FROM HILLARY TO SANDERS.. SO THE DNC STARTED CUTTING THE AMOUNT OF DEBATE THEY HAD.. THAT IS JUST ONE EXAMPLE DIANE.. STOP IT JUST STOP IT DIANE.. DO YOU REALLY WANT US TO LIST ALL OF THE EXAMPLES OF THE DNC RIGGING THE ELECTION FOR HILLARY? ALSO, I WANT TO TANK YOU FOR PUTTING TRUMP IN OFFICE.. ALL YOU HILLARY SUPPORTERS, THE DNC AND THE MSM PUT TRUMP IN OFFICE BECA– USE YOU HAD A CHANCE OF ELECTING A PERSON THAT WOULD HAVE BEAT TRUMP.. ALL YOU PEOPLE ARE TO BLAME.. WHEN TRUM P STARTS WARS YOU WILL HAVE BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS FOR GETTING THOSE KIDS KILLED IN TRUMPS WARS ALSO. YOU WILL HAVE EVERYTHING BAD TRUMP DOES ON YOUR HANDS. JUST REMEMBER THAT EVERY TRUMP DOES SOMETHING AWFUL TO OUR COUNTRY..

        • Steve1, you need some serious counseling on online etiquette – writing in all caps is hickish and impolite…You come across as having a mental problem, anger issues………You didn’t list a single way to prove the DNC caused Sanders supporters any harm………Take donations for instance – if you gave money to Sanders, it didn’t go to the DNC………. How many debates did you think would be enough? Didn’t they do 8? As I recall, the consensus was Hillary won them all……The reason Bernie and his campaign got his supporters all riled up about the # of debates was because he’d get more TV face time without having to pay for it.

    • Yeah, Jeff, the DNC probably bought him off……Everyone thinks he/she is a lawyer. Law is difficult to understand and things you believe are just common sense don’t always prevail, e.g., judges cannot simply overturn a local ordinance. They are required to give deference to elected officials. There must be a concrete legal issue to decide.

      • Hi Vicki; I looked at the two fellows running in 2016 on the Libertarian ticket. I wanted Bernie Sanders, but he folded and then made noises like a corrupt corporate, war mongering democrat and asked me to vote for Crooked EVIL Hillary Establishment Clinton and has been carrying their corrupt lies and messages ever since. I voted for Jill Stein (a wonderful individual). I am a Social Anarchist independant Oregon Voter; so of course loved Bernie’s social stance; his war stance was not good and has gotten worse.

          • Hi Diane; Jill met Putin; good. I would like to meet Putin and take him fishing in my Oregon mountains. I have a book I have been meaning to read (amazon books has it); “the Putin Interviews” by Oliver Stone. Nuclear War is the end of life; let’s be friends and not use nuclear weapons on each other. I hear the “Lords of Creation” by Frederick Lewis allen is a wonderful read, written in 1935.

            Peace Not War. Disband the american Military, CIA, Homeland Security and the FBI. No More War.

          • Really? How “clearly” is that? Peaceniks have often been tools of tyrants, but that doesn’t make them intentional tools. It also doesn’t invalidate their position. However, everything you have said points clearly to you being a DNC troll. Why don’t you work with that, it’s a lot easier to prove!

          • Damn. I’ve had these threads on auto-moderation settings for the past 2 months otherwise I would have stopped this Russiaphobic racist @austin1994:disqusfrom continuing. So sorry everyone.

          • Hi Diane; I am an American veteran and patriot. You are a antilife, war monger and brainwashed Crooked Hillary supporter.

            No More War. No More Nuclear Weapons.

      • Seriously, you don’t remember? The same “ways” that Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned over.. It was rather disgusting behavior.
        And never mind all the little things the establishment democrats in the party did, all the way down to the caucus level, to try and shut out Bernie supporters. Including sloppily done head counting, and extremely shady and statistically IMPOSSIBLE “coin tosses”, all won for Hillary. And all the articles about these things, are still out there.
        We were plenty vocal about it, got plenty of videos and news articles about the BS they were pulling against us, but still you choose to forget it, to justify your bias.
        Well I’m gradually shifting my opinion now.. I think I’m going to start BLAMING Hillary supporters, for Trump. Bernie could have won the primary if it was fair, and the polls back then showed he had a MUCH better chance at beating Trump in the general than she did.
        See linked video: The data about how many bernie primary supporters voted for Trump (clue, less than hillary’s primary voters flipped for mccain in 08) proves that Bernie would have taken a lot of reasonable voters from Trump, who simply didn’t want to vote for Hillary. And statistically, it would have given Bernie the win over Trump.

        • OkinKun, your proof the DNC titled the primary to Hillary is things like fixed coin tosses? So you think the established Dems in locations where the coin tosses occurred used weighted coins? Am I understanding that correctly?

          I assume you have heard the term “fake news” and “biased reporting.” I read a lot of reports, both the biased and the factual, watched the Bernie supporters’ videos, including from the Nevada caucus, and the most prominent disclosure evidenced throughout was that Bernie supporters did not understand the rules. Like all the screaming and foot stumping because they were not allowed to vote in the NY primary – because they didn’t follow the state election laws pertaining to “closed primary.” That had nothing to do with Hillary or the DNC……..Even in Nevada, it was reported that Bernie’s top campaign staff met with his delegates the night before and urged them to protest at the caucus because somehow they were going to be cheated. Of course that was not born out by the facts – they just did not understand or accept the rules.

          As for DWS resigning – I was there, in person. She resigned because the RUDE, obnoxious Sanders supporters were so disruptive the DNC could not conduct business. They were so bad they chanted and disrupted the prayer at the opening of the convention. Rather than have a Tea Party type spectacle at the convention, she stepped down.

          There are no accurate data that show Sanders could have won the primary (look at the total # of votes for each candidate) or that he could have won the general. Keep in mind that Sanders had not been vetted by the media, but that would have changed in the general. As soon as the Republicans showed a clipped video of Sanders supporting Castro or the Sandinistas, the Independents and patriots would have deserted him in droves. http://www.politico.com/blogs/2016-dem-primary-live-updates-and-results/2016/03/bernie-sanders-1985-praise-of-fidel-castro-sandinistas-220550

          • ..wow.. You’re as bad as a Trump supporter, when it comes to denying reality and reinforcing your own. I pointed you in the right direction.. All you do is shout “fake news”.. put words in my mouth.. And blame Bernie supporters for the OUTRAGE they felt AFTER being screwed, as the reason they were treated that way.. Bernie supporters would NOT have been rude to her, had she and the DNC remained a neutral party in the primary. But no, they didn’t, and THEY ADMITTED IT, she admitted it when she resigned, and it was proven in leaked emails. Not fake news. They deserved the backlash for it.
            The video I gave you, and the data within, nevermind all the polls from the time, IS the accurate data, which shows Sanders could have won. And you fools were trying to use it to bash Sanders supporters last week, until we pointed you to 2008’s much worse data.
            Also, I never said ANYTHING about “weighted coins”. What a shameful debate tactic to put such words in my mouth. I said the tosses were conducted in a shady way, as they were done quickly among crowds of people, with few seeing the results except the establishment likely-Hillary supporter doing the flips.. And statistically speaking, coin flips don’t usually all go to one side, unless there’s something screwy going on. The few videos out there showing the coin tosses, looked like popular school children trying to cheat the opposing group. They COULD have done it in the open, not touched it till the results were confirmed by a few people, but they didn’t. There was no way to confirm what happened, and NOT how we should be conducting primaries, and it happened more than usual that time.

          • You are still arguing the coin flips and not providing any specific details of how you think you got screwed, nor how DWS showed partiality to Clinton through the DNC………..Even IF you think the DNC showed partiality, how can you fault them for favoring the DEMOCRAT over the INDEPENDENT? The “D” in DNC actually stands for DEMOCRAT.

            You do know that Sanders never registered as a Democrat? So why would he be entitled to anything paid for by the DNC?

          • Diane, you truly are as blind as a Trump supporter. Just read the transcripts from THIS HEARING. The DNC lawyers not only admitted tilting the election for Hillary (since the DNC emails proved it and they couldn’t deny it) but in order to get the case dismissed, they announced that the DNC not only did it but has the right to do it and has no responsibility to primary voters to be neutral. If you can’t accept it from the horses’ mouth, how successful do you think you’ll be in convince anyone of your now fully unjustifiable and indefensible position?

            Literally, I didn’t get upset reading your fantasy, I was roaring with laughter because you literally are as resistant to facts as the GOP you think you’re fighting by being All Blue.

          • Seer, you demonstrate the problem with most Sanders supporters, in fact two problems. The first is many of you do not possess critical thinking skills. The 2nd is millennials are known as the “entitlement” generation because they believe they are entitled with no legitimate basis, i.e., you were entitled to win this case but, as the judge found, you offered no legitimate basis for a complaint.

            Ask one of your parents to read the Order and explain it to you. The lawyer did NOT admit titling the election. He argued that based on the DNC rules, they COULD HAVE chosen the person they wanted to represent the Dem party (you do know that Bernie never joined the Dem Party, right?). As your parent will explain – “could have” is not the same as “we did.” HOWEVER – that was not the reason the judge dismissed the complaint. He dismissed it because the plaintiffs presented no factual allegations that they were harmed. If they have those emails you talked about, I am sure they will refile and present them as evidence.

            If you have authenticated emails that prove the DNC titled the election, I would really appreciate if you would share them with me. I keep reading this claim and I’ve searched for the emails but have not yet found them.

            I did read about a document (don’t know if it was a leaked email) supposedly between DWS and another person discussing how they did something unethical having to do with Hillary and Loretta Lynch; however, the FBI investigated and found no evidence the document was legitimate, but believed to be a Russian fake. If you are interested –

            https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/how-a-dubious-russian-document-influenced-the-fbis-handling-of-the-clinton-probe/2017/05/24/f375c07c-3a95-11e7-9e48-c4f199710b69_story.html

            Another situation that many millennials, and sounds like yourself, are not aware of — the DNC has no authority nor ability to effect state primary elections. That is left to the state legislators who make election laws, For example, legislatures determine if primary elections are closed or open. Open being that ANY voters, regardless of party, can vote in any primary. That means that Republicans could decide who the Democratic nominees would be….Do you see the absurdness in that?

          • False argument. He registered as a Democratic candidate and was accepted by the DNC as such. Therefore he was just as entitled as Hillary to campaign assistance. In fact the DNC said so before he started doing well in the primaries.

          • You play the woulda coulda shoulda game pretty well, but you make the assumption that bernie would have been playing to traditional GOP when in fact had Bernie won the primary, he’d have been playing to Trump voters’ desire to reboot the System, but without the racism and neanderthal messaging. Remember people stayed home because both candidates were awful. Both of them.

          • DIANE, YOU TALK ABOUT NEWS REPORTS BUT YOU ALSO TALK ABOUT FAKE NEWS. DO YOU — USED THE NEWS REPORTS YOU LIKE AND THE ONES YOU DON’T LIKE CALL THEM FAKE? JUST LOOK AT THE AMOUNT OF TV DEBATES THE DNC ALLOWED.. THOSE DEBATES WERE CUT MORE THAN HALF OF THE DEBATES BETWEEN HILLARY AND OBAMA.. AS WE ALL FOUND OUT THE MORE PEOPLE GOT TO SEE AND HEAR SANDERS THE MORE PEOPLE VOTED FOR SANDERS.. THAT WAS WHY DNC CUT THE AMOUNT OF TV DEBATES.. I COULD GO ON AND ON ABOUT WHAT THE DNC DID TO GIVE HILLARY THE WIN BUT IT IS CLEAR YOU WILL SIMPLY CALL THE FACTS FAKE NEWS JUST LIKE TRUMP DOES.. YOU HILLARY SUPPORTERS REMIND ME OF THE TRUMP SUPPORTERS A LOT.. JUST STOP IT, STOP IT DIANE. THE HILLARY SUPPORTERS ARE AS MUCH TO BLAME FOR US HAVING TRUMP AS THE TRUMP SUPPORTERS ARE TO BLAME.. THE HILLARY SUPPORTERS AND TRUMP SUPPORTERS ARE THE SAME COIN JUST A DIFFERENT SIDE.. EVERY TIME YOU HEAR OF THE AWFUL THING TRUMP IS DOING JUST REMEMBER THE HILLARY VOTERS, THE DNC AND THE MSM PUT TRUMP IN THAT OFFICE.

          • “Cut more than half.” So what you are suggesting is that they should have had 16 – SIXTEEN debates. Don’t you think that is ridiculous? So you admit in your angry typing that NON-DEMOCRAT Sanders was using the DEMOCRATIC National Committee to get free publicity and that is why he wanted more debates……..You really need to do some research on the outcome of the debates. You’ll find that Hillary was deemed the winner in most if not all…..Besides, do you recall that Hillary received several million more votes than Sanders? No debates would have overcome those numbers.

            Your logic that Hillary voters elected Trump is totally illogical……..Keep feeding yourself the lies. Keep denying to yourself that those Sanders supporters who did not vote for Hillary are the ones who helped elect Trump. Them and the Russians. If you don’t believe it, look up the numbers in the key states she lost. If the people who supported Sanders but did not vote and those who voted for Putin lover Jill Stein had voted for Hillary, she would have won, the variable being that if Russia hacked the votes, Hillary wasn’t going to win regardless.

  • I guess the over $300 I donated to Bernie isn’t injury enough.. Donated that money expecting he’d have a fair shot, instead they tilted everything against him they could, and got their media buddies to ignore or marginalize him.

  • NOW can people please leave the Democratic Party? It’s clear that these political organizations are not subject to the judiciary and cannot be forced to comply with basic ethical standards. The party has to die. The two-party system has to die. We have to start fighting for civil rights within third parties, working alongside independents every step of the way.

    • Juan, do you understand how Trump won? Too many people believed the lies about the DNC and Clinton and either wrote in Bernie or voted for Stein. Is your plan, to repeat the same mistakes in 2020? Or do you think you can do your own research and learn the truth about the candidates before you make up your mind?

      • Stay woke, Diane. You’re clearly a genius and think for yourself. I have never heard your argument before. It’s brilliant. Thank you for opening my eyes! I’ve found God, and God’s a Democrat! You saved my soul! Those dumb Bernie and Stein voters just didn’t understand that freedom means voting Democrat! Henceforth, I will always do my research and vote Democrat! Hurray for free thought! Hurray for voting blue no matter who!

      • I admit I believed a lot of lies promoted on social media. It was my first rodeo with the level of lying that the internet produces. I still think Bernie would have been the best choice and would have handily won against Trump. But I took Bernie’s advice and went to work for Hillary. Doing that I discovered two thing: 1) Hillary had actually drafted a LOT of policy (plans for governing) that included much of Bernie’s platform and would have been a significant improvement over Obama’s efforts to help working people, but nobody knew about that inside or out of the party; and 2) My local Democratic Party office was full of amazing people who by and large wanted the same things for the country that I did, even if we disagreed as to who was best suited to implement them. I’ve since found out that a lot of the lies were created by people trying to disrupt the election. Some of the things I know about Hillary – her far-too-intimate involvement with Wall Street and billionaire elite – are terribly damning and made her unsuitable to lead the country out of the doldrums and paralysis it has had since Reagan. However, in relation to Trump, she was not just the better choice, but better by a light year. She’d have given us 4/8 years to further organize and put who we wanted in the White House. We would have moved forward, though admittedly slowly and without addressing the wealth inequality that is the single biggest problem we faced until Trump dredged up fascism from what we thought was a deep grave.

        Hopefully all of us have learned how to dredge up truth and resist FaceBook memes that seductively lie to us. I don’t have that much hope that people in general will understand that the kind of economics that Hillary (and to a great extent, Trump) promote – Elite-o-nomics is a good name for it – is destroying our country to the point where we must act. We have an educational challenge in the next year/three years to show people *why* democratic socialism or New Deal Economics as well as campaign finance reform are top priorities to restore Democracy. A big part of that is the people who blindly voted for Clinton will have to learn that while she was the better choice, her approach wasn’t going to fix that problem. We have quite a few Democrats now who are possible choices for 2020 who can, but more importantly, we need to require all congressional and senate candidates to vow to reform our system as well.

        Behind that banner Democrats and Independents and Berners can all get together. Because if we don’t get together, the results are too awful to consider.

        • The only reason why Bernie endorsed Hillary even before the Philadelphia convention, is because Obama and Hillary made Bernie an offer he couldn’t refuse. There is no other explanation for how quickly he stopped talking like a progressive, and started talking like a neocon.
          If Hillary had won, we would actually had been worse off. Dems would have gone to sleep, like they did under Obama. Fascism would have continued to advance without any backlash.
          Thanks to Trump, that has all changed. Now the people hold both corporate parties accountable.

        • Seer, to claim Hillary drafted policies that included much of Bernie’s is just plain bullshit. And I don’t use that term lightly. Clinton had 30 years of experience “on the ground,” plus her experience in foreign affairs, to develop her policies………Have you considered the fact that two progressive people could have the same ideas?…… But she never accepted his “free” college crap, or ‘everyone gets $15.00 min wage’ she had enough sense to know that no every community could support $15, so her plan was to set at $12, then raise incrementally………Just what do you “know” about Hillary’s involvement with Wall Street that you think is far-to-intimate”?…..Did you bother to check her voting record?………… Even a reporter with the NYT who followed Clinton for years, writing nasty things about her, admitted that she had never found any evidence Hillary voted to help any donors…….You might want to do some goggling for “Republicans vetting Sanders”. Their first ad would have shown Bernie with a sickle and hammer. The next would have been clips of him in Nicaragua supporting those murders and him supporting Castro. …….One more point – why don’t you go to school and try to educate yourself. Obama did EVERYTHING he could for working people. You may recall, or maybe you never learned, the Republicans who took control of Congress in 2011, vowed they would stop anything he tried to do. They stopped his job plan (I still have a copy of it) because they had rather see Americans suffer than to allow that undeserving black guy be successful.

    • If all the people who could expose, refresh, revigorate, repurpose, and relegitimize the Democratic Party go off and leave, then that will leave it to keep doing its dirty work of ignoring those it claims to serve. And it will make the DNC leadership very, very happy. There is no “alternative” under our current Constitution to the two-party system. So the choices are to huff off and whine and watch the GOP and the Dems continue to neocon and neoliberalize our government, OR we can actually get off our asses and join the party as reformers. Did you know that if you hold a committeemembership, including your neighborhood Precinct Committeeperson role, you can vote on who leads the party? Did you know a bunch of Berners, millenials, and progressives got together last year after Bernie’s loss and planned a movement to bring the people the party says it’s serving into the party’s committees where they can vote on the leadership? Did you know that movement, called #DemEnter, has made significant progress in the last reorg, installing leadership committed to serving working Americans, even though they only had a few months to prepare for February’s reorg? So what have you done to fix things? #DemEnter

      • Yeah, you don’t realize it, but you’re actually just helping to make my decision easier. I’m staying far, far away from the two-party system. I will never again join the Democratic Party. 🙂

        • The only thing you guarantee by disconnecting from the system as it is, is that you don’t have a voice in it. This has been Bernie’s point all along but like many fake Bernie supporters, you seem to only hear the things he says that you want to hear. His real supporters respect his wisdom, not justas a quick fix to the things they don’t like about the system. That was the same attitude the Trump supporters acted on. Clearly our Democracy is set forth in the Constitution isn’t perfect, but by disconnecting,you prove that you aren’t worthy of it.

      • PLEASE, PLEASE do leave! Leave us real Democrats in peace so we can go about organizing and getting prepared for the next elections. If you want a project, try to undo the gerrymandering in your state, so Dems have a chance to win more elections.

  • Our legal system is quite broken, as though seeking truth is inconsequential … https://lawnewz.com/high-profile/in-brutal-takedown-judge-boots-berniebackers-fraud-lawsuit-out-of-court/

    `Judge William Zloch, a Reagan appointee, said even if their allegations are true, they don’t have standing nor have they demonstrated any recognizable injury and thus ordered the case closed. He didn’t mince words either in his 28-page order.

    “To the extent Plaintiffs wish to air their general grievances with the DNC or its candidate selection process, their redress is through the ballot box, the DNC’s internal workings, or their right of free speech——not through the judiciary,” wrote Judge William Zloch in an order dismissing the case. The judge added that the plaintiffs also lack standing to sue.

    The judge wrote: The Plaintiffs asserting each of these causes of action specifically allege that they donated to the DNC or to Bernie Sanders’s campaign. But not one of them alleges that they ever read the DNC’s charter or heard the statements they now claim are false before making their donations. And not one of them alleges that they took action in reliance on the DNC’s charter or the statements identified in the First Amended Complaint (DE 8). Absent such allegations, these Plaintiffs lack standing.`
