Donna Curling, et al. v. Brad Raffensperger, et al. (Document 579) (August 2019)
US District Court Opinion and Ruling that GEMS/DRE Elecronic Voting Machines are illegal in Georgia, but denies an injuction against their use in 2019 because it would create chaos to ban the machines immediately prior to an election. The GEMS/DRE machines are banned for all elections after 2019. (This lawsuit addresses other issues as well, such as dirty voter rolls.)
Donna Curling, et al. v. Brad Raffensperger, et al. (Document 964) (October 2020)
A later court opinion in the same case described above, ruling that Dominion Electronic Voting Machines are illegal in Georgia, but denying an injuction against their use in the 2020 election because it would create chaos to ban the machines immediately prior to an election. (The ruling starts out with reference to the movie Groundhog Day, where the events of the day are repeated over and over.) The ruling notes that (amoung other things)
the true risks posed by the new BMD voting system as well as its manner of implementation...
are neither hypothetical nor remote under the current circumstances. The insularity of the Defendant's and Dominion's stance here in evaluation and management of the security and vulnerability of the BMD system does not benefit the public or citizen's confident exercise of the franchise. The stealth vote alteration or operational interference risks posed by malware that can be effectively invisible to detection.
Donna Curling, et al. v. Brad Raffensperger, et al. (Document 965) (October 2020)
A subsequent ruling on the case described above due to appeals by the Defendant and a Motion from the Plaintiff. This revised ruling seeks to clarify and somehwhat modify the details of the previous ruling.
VoterGA and Philip Singleton v. State of Georgia (August 2021)
Lawsuit filed in Fulton County Superior Court asking for an injunction against using Dominion Voting Machines in all future elections because the QR code printed and used to tally votes is a violation of state law that requires the ballots to be verifable by the voter. The lawsuit points out that, even if a voter had a device to read the QR code, use of the device to read the ballot would not be legal.

Shawn Still and Jane Doe 1 v. Brad Raffensperger and Coffee County Board of Elections and Registration, et al. Verified Petition for Emergency Injunctive and Declaratory Relief (December 2020)
Lawsuit filed in the Superior Court of Fulton County against elections officials and members of the Board of Elections in Coffee County, as well as the Secretary of State/Chairman of the State Board of Elections. The lawsuit asserts that the Coffee County Board of Elections was not able to certify the results of the 2020 General Election because repeated hand counts did not substantiate machine results. The Secretary of State
demanded that the Board
ignore the discrepancies and certfy the machine counts, and imposed artificial (unlawful) deadlines to do so. The Board ultimately certifed the hand counts, but the Secretary of State tallied the uncertified machine counts. The lawsuit further asserts that the Secretary of State sent armed investigators to harass the elections officials. The court filing refers to a letter from Coffee County Board of Elections to the Secretary of State stating that based on Coffee County experience with the voting machines, no county in Georgia should be able to certify the machine results.
Shawn Still and Jane Doe 1 v. Brad Raffensperger and Coffee County Board of Elections and Registration, et al. Notice of Voluntary Dismissal (December 2020)

The Biden-Trump margin in the 2020 election was .3%, and state law requires that a recount be automatically conducted whenever the margin is .5% or less (per the Report). The Report asserts that the recount quite precisely matches the originally reported results. This particular document doesn't mention specifically how the audit was conducted, what was counted, nor does the Report identify who conducted the audit or who generated the Report.

Presentation at the DEF CON 27 Hacking Conference describing a research project conducted by the University of Michigan Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, demonstrating software that electronically manipulates ballot images to swap votes between candidates.
