Supreme Court Rejects Texas Lawsuit Challenging Election Results

Summary from the AllSides News Team

On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a case launched by Texas and backed by the Trump campaign that sought to challenge 2020 presidential election results in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed the case Tuesday, arguing that the battleground states violated state and Constitution election laws when officials and courts ordered COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic-related modifications. The Court decided 7-2 not to hear the case on the grounds that Texas lacked standing to pursue the case, saying it has not demonstrated a "judicially cognizable interest." Coverage from left- and center-rated outlets tended to highlight the details of the case; some coverage from right-rated outlets highlighted other lawsuits across the country challenging election results.
