November 19, 2020 | 3:24 pmA federal court has ruled that a California woman who sued President Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee for election fraud, claiming that she was disenfranchised, will be allowed to return to her job.

U.S. District Judge Susan Illston in Los Angeles ruled Friday that Trump and his attorneys did not violate the Voting Rights Act by not informing the woman that her election was invalid when she applied for a ballot in early October.

Illston also ruled that the lawsuit’s claims against Trump and Republican National Committeeman David Bossie are preempted by a state law that requires election officials to notify eligible voters if they believe they have been disenfranchised.

The lawsuit was filed in April 2018 by Lisa Garza, who was elected as a Republican to the California Assembly in 2019.

Garza has since returned to her role as a legislative aide and, after the election, was named chief of staff for the California Republican Party.

Bossie resigned as chairman of the Republican Party of California in May 2019.
