Lin Wood, a former member of Donald Trump’s legal team and one of the foremost pushers of the lie that the 2020 election was rigged, has permanently retired from practicing law.

Wood isn’t exactly riding into the sunset after an esteemed career. He’s faced a slew of legal action since his effort to overturn President Joe Biden’s win failed, which the The Daily Beast recounted last month. Wood and some of his colleagues have been accused of misconduct in Michigan for filing bogus election lawsuits; he’s feuded with various other right-wing conspiracists and three of his former colleagues have sued him for defamation; and the state of Georgia held a disciplinary trail in May and is currently deciding whether to disbar him. His permanent retirement would prevent the state from doing so.
