American Supreme Court has nulled an unprecedented effort to discard election results in 4 battlefield states that was supported by President Trump.
This week, the case filed by the Texas state, wanted to overturn the outcomes in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Georgia. Although, Joe Biden (the President-elect) got victory over all those states.
The case was backed by 106 Republican members of Congress and eighteen attorneys general. But on Friday, in a brief order refusing the bid, the court said that Texas state didn’t attain legal standing to catch the case.
This week, the Supreme Court banned an individual legal encounter against the President-elect Joe Biden’s success in Pennsylvania by rejecting it in one hearing.
