Biden campaign forming 'special litigation' team ahead of possible voting battle
By Justine Coleman - 09/14/20 08:10 AM EDT

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign is reportedly forming a “special litigation” team made of hundreds of lawyers ahead of a potential legal battle against President Trump and his campaign.

Donald B. Verrilli Jr. and Walter Dellinger, two former solicitors general, will lead the special litigation unit, which is part of the campaign’s overall new legal operation, The New York Times reported Monday.

Biden campaign officials framed the operation as the largest election protection program in presidential campaign history, saying it is needed as concerns over voting and Trump’s unfounded claims of fraud continue to spread ahead of the election.

The special litigation team will include lawyers from Democratic law firm Perkins Coie who will look into the state-by-state battles over casting ballots and voting rules. Marc Elias, the chair of Perkins Coie’s Political Law Group, will lead this portion of the unit, according to the Times.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder will also reportedly work to communicate with independent groups participating in the legal battle over the election.
