Judge Scott McAfee ruled that former President Donald Trump and other defendants can seek an appeal of his previous order denying their motion to disqualify Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis from their election interference case.

Last week, Trump filed to disqualify Willis due to her office’s relationship with Nathan Wade, a former prosecutor and romantic partner of Willis.

McAfee had ruled Willis could stay on if Wade resigned, which he did.

Now, McAfee says while Trump appeals, he will continue handling other pretrial motions in the case over the next 45 days, even if the appeals court takes up the request expedited.

The Georgia Court of Appeals will decide whether to hear Trump’s appeal of the denial to disqualify Willis.

“The Court intends to continue addressing the many other unrelated pending pretrial motions, regardless of whether the petition is granted within 45 days of filing, and even if any subsequent appeal is expedited by the Appellate Court,” McAfee wrote.

The case is State of Georgia v. Trump in Fulton County Superior Court.
