Hi folks. So this a curated thread to follow up on my previous “general discussion” thread here concerning lawsuits that have been filed against the Trump administration, family, foundation, etc. since Trump took office.
As I had said in that thread, I have been interested in finding a list of all lawsuits filed against Trump and found (to my surprise) that none of the major news outlets seem to be maintaining such a list. So I’ve taken it upon myself to get one started for the WTF Community.
I’m hosting it on Google Drive here. It’s crude and missing some information on a few but I figure it’s a good enough start. The problem that I foresee is many news outlets don’t link to the complaint or even give the civil action number when they write about lawsuit announcements so trying to find the specific plaintiffs and defendants can be tricky. Additionally I’m not an attorney myself so I don’t know how best to check the status of cases overtime.
I’ve started combing through the WTFJHT archives for suits and saving those that are announced starting this week. I’m thinking for some key topics and issues such as the original Muslim ban in January 2017 it makes sense to include just one or two key cases filed. For example I currently have the ACLU’s lawsuit listed while I know I could also include the State of Hawaii vs. Trump which are just two of the many cases that were filed from that original ban.
I will update this spreadsheet as I can. This is of course not my full time job, just something interesting to me. If anyone is interested and motivated enough to lend a hand in this endeavor please let me know.
