Two attorneys have been ordered to pay nearly 7,000 in legal fees after unsuccessfully challenging the results of the 2020 presidential election in a lawsuit that a federal judge called “defamatory,” an “abuse of the legal system” and a means to foment violence.

Two Colorado lawyers were ordered by a federal judge to pay nearly 7,000 after filing lawsuits last year challenging the results of the 2020 presidential election . He also reportedly referenced the suit at the time as “the stuff of which violent insurrections are made.” In his Monday order , both lawyers were required to pay over ,000 to cover the legal fees of the states of Michigan and Pennsylvania as well as ,000 to Facebook and ,930 each to Dominion and the Center for Tech and Civic Life, according to the Post.

The lawyers were ordered to pay $62,930 to Dominion and $50,000 to Facebook. Election officials in four swing states were also named in the suit and will be receiving penalty proceeds from attorneys Gary D. Fielder and Ernest J. Walker, AP reported.

U.S. Magistrate Judge N. Reid Neureiter first ruled in August that the two lawyers should pay penalties, writing that their lawsuit "put into or repeated into the public record highly inflammatory and damaging allegations that could have put individuals' safety in danger."

"Doing so without a valid legal basis or serious independent personal investigation into the facts was the height of recklessness," he added.

He awarded the fees Monday, saying that the class-action suit was meant to manipulate "gullible members of the public" and contributed to the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection. Neureiter stayed the awards while an appeal to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver is in progress, according to AP.

Neureiter scolded the attorneys, saying they'd appealed for public donations to hire legal experts for their case though none were hired, and that the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol was promoted by the lies it repeated.

He said the suit repeated "unverified and uninvestigated defamatory rumors that strike at the heart of our democratic system and were used by others to foment a violent insurrection that threatened our system of government."

Repeated audits and recounts found no significant fraud in the presidential election. Trump's own administration said the election was clean. Still, Trump and his allies filed dozens of suits. Ultimately they lost more than 60 of the election lawsuits.
