Lindsay v. Republican National Committee
Filing Date Type File Action Taken Summary 10/02/2017 Opinion and Order Download Case dismissed. Wisconsin Federal Court Dismissed Pro Se Lawsuit Claiming That Republican and Conservative Policies—Including Failure to Address Climate Change—Violated Plaintiff’s Rights. The federal district court for the Western District of Wisconsin dismissed a pro se complaint that listed a number of grievances against more than 120 defendants, including the Republican National Committee, President Trump, Trump administration cabinet officials, and elected officials. The plaintiff said the defendants had violated her rights by, among other things, failing to act on global warming. The relief sought included removal of President Trump, his cabinet, and Republican senators, declaration of Hillary Clinton as president, and restructuring of the voting system. The court said the plaintiff had not alleged an injury connected to any particular action or law and that her allegations instead suggested disagreements with the defendants’ policy positions, which made her claims nonjusticiable political questions. 02/17/2017 Complaint Download Pro se complaint filed.
