This effort appears to be President Trumps’ last chance of staying in office.
The State of Texas has filed a lawsuit at the US Supreme Court to throw out the voting results from four key swing states in the US Presidential election. The court has committed to ruling by 3:00 pm on Thursday, December 10th.
Normally the Supreme Court only rules on cases that have been heard in the lower courts first. This case is allowed as it is presented as a conflict between states. Texas is saying the other states made illegal changes to their voting laws which impacted the results of the election at a national level.
Earlier this week the Supreme Court issued a one line response to an election challenge from Pennsylvania:
“The application for injunctive relief presented to Justice
Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied.”
