ATLANTA (AP) — A Georgia judge on Monday ordered the Fulton County district attorney’s office to respond to a motion by former President Donald Trump to throw out a report by a special grand jury that investigated attempts to interfere in the state’s 2020 presidential election.

The motion by Trump’s legal team also seeks to toss out all testimony from the inquiry and to bar Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis from continuing to investigate or prosecute Trump.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney ordered Willis to respond by May 1 and to let him know whether an in-person hearing is needed to resolve any issues. A spokesperson for Willis said her office would reply through its court filings.

Willis has been investigating Trump over a recording of a January 2021 phone call between Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

About 75 witnesses have testified before a special grand jury over the case.

Trump’s legal team filed the challenge over the last last Monday, and asked for a different judge besides McBurney to hear the challenge.

Trump’s lawyers also slammed Willis for her 39 media appearances, saying her comments to the media have cast ”a shadow of bias over her office and the entire investigation.”
