The Georgia district attorney who is investigating Trump over alleged election interference has enlisted the help of John Floyd, a partner at the Bondurant Mixson & Elmore firm in Atlanta. Floyd is a seasoned practitioner and the author of the ABA publication “RICO State by State: A Guide to Litigation Under the State Racketeering Statutes,” described on the firm website as “the only book on state RICO statutes.”
The district attorney who retained Floyd is Fani Willis, district attorney for Fulton County, which includes Atlanta. Willis has said she would look at, among other possible violations, solicitation of election fraud, making false statements to state and local government, bodies, conspiracy, and racketeering. Willis has notable experience with state RICO law in her own right, including as prosecutor in a case that made national headlines several years ago, when 11 public school educators were convicted of racketeering for their role in doctoring standardized school test results.
