Judge Will Decide Whether To Disqualify Willis In Trump Prosecution

Judge Scott McAfee indicated Friday that he would issue a ruling on the motion to disqualify Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis within two weeks.

During Friday’s closing arguments, defense attorney John Merchant told McAfee there were “enough facts” in front of him to disqualify Willis, arguing the standard only required finding the appearance of conflict. McAfee said after arguments concluded that he could not make the legal and factual determinations necessary to issue a ruling today, but indicated he hoped to have an answer in the next two weeks.
