The US Supreme Court has dismissed the case filed by Texas against four contested states — Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania — alleging that they had violated the Constitution in their conduct of the election.
According to the lawsuit, these four states had made up rules that had not been passed by the state legislatures.
Texas had maintained that their interests were impaired by the other states failing to act in accordance with their state laws and the Constitution.
The majority of the Court clearly disagreed with that contention in their decision. Seven out of nine justices ruled against the suit on Friday, because it had not “demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections”.
Brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, the Lone Star State wanted to stop four key battleground states – Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin – from casting their electoral votes. If it had been successful, it would have enabled state legislatures to select new electors.
Only two justices gave dissenting views: Justice Alito joined by Justice Thomas. Justice Amy Coney Barrett, Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Justice Neil Gorsuch – allegedly pro-Trump judges – evidently did not show any favoritism nor an inclination to override Joe Biden’s victory.
President Donald Trump tweeted his disappointment over the Supreme Court’s decision. “The Supreme Court really let us down. No Wisdom, No Courage!” he said.
