Wisconsin Supreme Court turns away Trump election lawsuit

Wisconsin’s top court turned away a lawsuit from President Trump that sought to have the state’s election results decertified, yet another blow to Trump’s long-shot legal efforts to undo President-elect Joe Biden‘s victory. 

A majority of judges on the Wisconsin Supreme Court said on Thursday that the lawsuit filed this week would be best suited for one of the state’s lower courts. 

The president filed the lawsuit on Tuesday, asking the Supreme Court to toss out more than 200,000 votes in Democratic-leaning counties that he alleges were illegally cast. 

Trump lost the battleground state to Biden by more than 20,000 votes. 

Trump and his allies have flooded the battleground states with litigation in a hail-mary attempt to nullify Biden’s victory. The effort has largely proved unsuccessful so far.
