Georgia Appeals Court Stays Most Proceedings in Trump Election Case

The Georgia Court of Appeals on Wednesday stayed the criminal election interference case against former President Donald J. Trump until an appellate panel could resolve the matter of whether District Attorney Fani T. Willis of Fulton County should be disqualified from prosecuting the case based on a conflict of interest.

In a one-page order, the court stated that any movement at the trial-court level pertaining to Mr. Trump and eight other defendants who have appealed a ruling allowing Ms. Willis to remain on the case was “stayed pending the outcome of these appeals.”

Earlier this week, the appellate court set a tentative date for oral argument of Oct. 4. Legal experts expect the appeals will take months to resolve.
