The DNC's motion to have the rigged primaries/fraud lawsuit dismissed was upheld by Judge Zloch on Friday, August 25, 2017. If you were you a Bernie supporter in 2015 or 2016, you remember that Wikileaks released documents revealing collusion between the DNC and Clinton campaign to make sure Hillary was the nominee and Bernie never had a chance. Attorney Elizabeth Beck represented our voices for months in Court as part of a class action lawsuit against the DNC, arguing that muddying the waters in support of Hillary and against Bernie violated the bylaws of the DNC's own charter. The lawsuit alleged fraud, negligent misrepresentation, deceptive  conduct, unjust enrichment, breach of fiduciary duty, and negligence. 4 months since the April 25 hearing on the DNC's lawyers' motion to dismiss the lawsuit, Judge Zloch made the decision that it should be dismissed, writing: “The Court must now decide whether Plaintiffs have suffered a concrete injury particularized to them, or one certainly impending, that is traceable to the DNC and its former chair’s conduct—the keys to entering federal court. The Court holds that they have not.” Strangely, the judge stated that he does not consider this matter within his court's jurisdiction. “Federal courts are courts of limited jurisdiction, possessing ‘only that power authorized by Constitution and statute.'” Tonight, we'll get Elizabeth's reaction to the ruling and find out what steps may be next, if any.
