The US Supreme Court has rejected a petition in support of US President Donald Trump to change the results of elections in four major states. The lawsuit, filed in Texas, seeks reversal of the results in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The British media BBC reported this.
Trump’s rival and Democrat candidate Joe Biden has won in these four states. The lawsuit was endorsed by attorney generals from 17 states and 107 Republicans in Congress.
The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed the case. The court held that Texas has no legal jurisdiction to prosecute.
The decision is another piece of bad news for Trump. He is claiming without proof that the final results of the November election will come from the Supreme Court.
Earlier this week, a court dismissed another lawsuit filed against Biden’s victory in Pennsylvania.
Republican nominee Joe Biden is believed to have lost his opponent by a large margin in the November 3 presidential election. As of state elections, Biden is 307-232 ahead of Trump.
