Trump’s appointed judge dismisses the Pennsylvania election case in Trump’s latest legal defeat

Donald Trump’s most recent case was dismissed over the 2020 election results. On Friday, a judge (appointed by Trump) dismissed the case against Pennsylvania, where Trump tried to undo Joe Biden’s victory.

District Judge Stephanos Bibas, who oversaw the case, began the shameful verdict, stating: “Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. The allegations of injustice are serious. But calling the elections unfair does not yet make the allegations specific. then evidence. He’s not here either. “

In 2017, Trump nominated Bibast to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the third round.

The decision details Pennsylvania’s voting laws, pollers, and postal voting, all of which were legal during the presidential election season. Bibas wrote that the Trump campaign did not deserve a command that prevented the state’s election results from becoming official. Bibas noted that “allegations have no merit.”

“Throwing away millions of mail would be drastic and unprecedented if it separated a huge selection of voters and overturned all ballots as well. This remedy would be grossly disproportionate to the procedural challenges raised,” Bibas wrote.
