This is not a case where the developers have alleged anything suggesting fraud and have reported such to the Board of Elections. Even if depositions were appropriate, the developers and their attorneys are not even targeting depositions to a particular circulator or two in an attempt get evidence substantiating their allegations. There is no articulated basis at all. Instead, developer attorney William Erskine, enabled by the court, issued subpoenas and filed for writs of body attachment for 1/4 of all 100 plus petition circulators, one of whom moved to California before being served and would be subject to interstate detainer and extradition back to Maryland. This is unprecedented.
