According to court papers filed on Wednesday evening, Kerns “has been the subject of threats of harm, to the point at which the involvement of police and US Marshals has been necessary to provide for her safety.”
The New York Post reported that “the stunning revelation came two days after Kerns, a solo practitioner, sought sanctions against a lawyer from the firm representing Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar for leaving her an ‘abusive voicemail’ on Saturday night.”
The attorney also explained in court documents that she had “been subjected to continuous harassment in the form of abusive emails, phone calls, physical and economic threats, and even accusations of treason — all for representing the President of the United States’ campaign in this litigation.”
On Monday, Kerns asked for permission to quit the case she was involved in. Her decision came after federal Judge Matthew Brann allowed Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur to withdraw from the case after The Lincoln Project launched an online harassment campaign against its employees.
Kerns isn’t the only attorney working for Trump’s team that has dealt with harassment and threats. Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur is one of a few law firms that has been pressured to stop working with the campaign. Other firms have indicated that leftists have harassed them for their role in helping the president challenge the result of the election.
