- Trump’s lawyers have unsuccessfully sought to delay the federal election interference trial to 2026.
- His team pointed out Powell vs Alabama, A SCOTUS ruling that guarantees the defendant “reasonable time” to obtain counsel.
- Delia Omuna, a professor at Harvard University, told The Washington Post that Trump’s team cited the Scottsboro Boys case as “incredibly eventful.”
“Therefore we were ethically required to cite this case and bring to the court’s attention the claim and the legal principles set forth in Powell v. Alabama,” he said. “What we did not do in any way in our briefing was to point out that there were any similarities between the factual circumstances of the Powell case and that of President Trump.”
