"They're Coming to Take Me Away Ho-ho Hee-hee Ha-haaa!"

From Haven Orecchio-Egresitz and Kelsey Vlamis' 1-29-21 INSIDER article entitled "Lawyer Lin Wood Says He Will Refuse a Mental Health Test and Threatens the Georgia State Bar as It Opens An Inquiry Into His Conduct":

A far-right, pro-Trump attorney who is at risk of losing his license to practice law posted to the alternative messaging app Telegram on Friday, saying he will refuse to take a mental health assessment the Georgia State Bar has requested.

L. Lin Wood, an Atlanta-based defamation lawyer, rose to infamy last year because of his role in former President Donald Trump's unhinged attempt to overthrow the election, and representing the teenager who shot three Black Lives Matter demonstrators during unrest over the summer.

He has been banned from Twitter after repeatedly spreading disinformation and conspiracy theories.

The city of Detroit had also previously called for Wood, and other lawyers involved in the election scheme, to be disbarred in Michigan and other states where they are licensed.

The State Bar of Georgia Chief Operating Officer Sarah Coole confirmed in an email to Insider that an inquiry pertaining to Wood is ongoing under a rule that says mental illness could be grounds for disbarment. She said the investigation process is confidential and did not provide further comment.

In a Telegram post on Friday afternoon, Wood said he would refuse the exam if it was formally requested of him.

"I am of sound mind and I have not violated any rule of professional conduct," he wrote.
