Judge Yvette Roland’s opinion comes after a lengthy trial over Eastman’s actions while he led some of the efforts for Donald Trump to challenge his 2020 election loss. The opinion serves as a recommendation to the California Supreme Court, which in He will ultimately decide whether to support or reject the punishment. Eastman will have the opportunity to appeal Roland’s ruling.

Still, the judge’s opinion marks an important step in the fallout for lawyers who pushed false theories of election fraud on Trump’s behalf.
