Stacy Abrams faced a setback after a judge ruled in favor of True the Vote, dismissing her claims of voter intimidation.

The judge found that True the Vote’s actions did not violate civil rights as alleged by Abrams.

While True the Vote’s win was celebrated, the judge faulted the organization for a messy submission of voter data. (Trending: Trump Announces Heartbreaking Melania-Related Health Update)

U.S. District Judge Steve Jones wrote, “Not only have plaintiffs failed to overcome the fact that their actions did not result in any direct voter contact or alone include or direct county boards of elections to pursue an eligibility inquiry, but there is no evidence that defendants’ actions caused (or attempted to cause) any voter to be intimidated, coerced, or threatened in voting.”

Catherine Engelbrecht, founder of True the Vote, said, “Today’s ruling sends a clear message to those who would attempt to control the course of our nation through lawfare and intimidation. American citizens will not be silenced.”

“TTV’s list utterly lacked reliability. Indeed, it verges on recklessness. The court has heard no testimony and seen no evidence of any significant quality control efforts, or any expertise guiding the data process,” wrote Judge Jones.

“It is clear that TTV did not engage in a quality process to create the list, nor did they have proper review or controls in place,” he continued.

Fair Fight, Abrams’ organization, expressed disappointment and highlighted the challenges in holding organizations accountable for voter intimidation.

Fair Fight Executive Director, Cianti Stewart-Reid, said, “Fair Fight is disappointed that Georgians and voters nationwide must continue to wait for our federal courts to impose accountability in the face of widespread and mounting voter intimidation efforts.”

“In recent years, we have witnessed the erosion of our rights unfold on a national level. And the courts do not consistently provide the vindication and protection we seek,” added Stewart-Reid.

True the Vote’s attorney emphasized the ruling’s significance in establishing the legitimacy of eligibility challenges in ensuring accurate voter rolls.

Jake Evans, an attorney for True the Vote, wrote in a statement, “This decision is monumental as it vindicates the defendants in totality and establishes that eligibility challenges … are a proper method to ensure voter rolls are accurate.”

The ruling rejected many of Fair Fight’s claims, including allegations of offering “bounty” money to voters.
