The Supreme Court again refused to review the claims of the current US President Donald Trump following the fast-track election results. Writes about this The Independent.
The court rejected motions for the states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The court can still hear appeals, but The Independent suggests that the hearings may not take place until the fall.
The publication notes that the Supreme Court continues to ignore requests from Republicans to review the election results on November 3. However, several judges have shown interest in the Pennsylvania case, which concerns a decision by the State Supreme Court to extend the deadline for receiving ballot papers by three days. It was passed despite protests from the Republican-controlled legislature.
In December, the U.S. Supreme Court also rejected a Trump-backed lawsuit that challenged Democrat Joe Biden's victory in the presidential election. The judges found no reason for the state of Texas, which filed the lawsuit, to dispute the election results in four other states.
