BREAKING: U.S. Supreme Court Rejects Texas Case Which Would Have Stopped The Election

The United States Supreme Court has denied a major legal challenge from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, which was joined by several states and repeatedly endorsed by President Trump.

The challenge sought to get the court to stop electors from some swing states from participating in the formal Electoral College vote to confirm the winner of the presidential election.

“The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution. Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot,” the Supreme Court said in the order.

While the formal decision seemed to be unanimous, the Washington Examiner reports conservative justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas released a concurring statement saying they would have heard the case. They said the case fell under their original jurisdiction and argued the court did not have a choice to deny it.

“We do not have the discretion to deny the filing of a bill of complaint in a case that falls within our original jurisdiction,” the two justices said, citing their own decision in Arizona v. California. In that case, the Supreme Court determined: “we likely do not have the discretion to decline review in cases within our original jurisdiction that arise between two or more States.”

The joint statement, however, did not include any statement concerning how they would have ultimately ruled on the case. It also did not promise any further intervention.

“I would therefore grant the motion to file the bill of complaint but would not grant other relief, and I express no view on any other issue,” Alito specified.

As the Washington Examiner reports, the decision could put an end to legal challenges to contest the 2020 election:

The decision means all Trump-nominated justices on the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett, sided against the president’s case. The Electoral College will meet to vote three days from now, Dec. 14, to make Joe Biden the next president of the United States.

The lawsuit all but ends Trump’s chances at overturning the results of the election in key swing states.

President Trump responded to the decision in a series of tweets, including one where he said the court “really let us down.”

The president also said he would continue fighting.
