Winning. Trump Immune From Suit for Election Comments Made in Office. A poll worker in Delaware County, PA. Filed several lawsuits against former President Trump in reference to comments he made while President.

Judge Michael Erdos in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Monday granted Trump immunity on two claims made in a 2021 lawsuit by voting-machine supervisor James Savage.
