Wisconsin Supreme Court dismisses Trump lawsuit challenging election defeat


The Supreme Court of Wisconsin caused another setback to overturn President Trump’s efforts to overturn the defeat of President-elect Joe Biden and turned the lawsuit, which disputed hundreds of thousands of postal votes cast in the battlefield state.

Two days after the Trump campaign launched the lawsuit, the Wisconsin Supreme Court said in a split 4-3 judgment that state law requires the case to be initiated in a lower court.

Mr Trump’s lawsuit annulled the justification for the Wisconsin election, which Mr Biden won by about 21,000 votes. He argued that the collection and counting of missing ballot papers in two populous and highly democratic democracies, Milwaukee and Dane, was hampered by systematic violations of electoral laws and that some 220,000 of the 3 million votes cast nationwide should have been excluded from the census. .

Thursday’s decision follows a series of unsuccessful lawsuits elsewhere, and it follows that battlefield states are showing proven results that Mr Biden won the election, so Mr Trump has no known way to reverse the court results. The December 8 deadline was also approaching for states to finalize election results and elect voters before a meeting of the Electoral College a week later.

Attorney General William Barr said Tuesday that the Department of Justice has found no evidence of widespread voter fraud that would alter the election results.
