Michigan Supreme Court Tosses Trump Legal Team's Appeal

As time passes, the Trump legal team and other Republicans challenging the 2020 election appear to be having an increasingly difficult time.
Last night, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a substantial election lawsuit initiated by Texas with multiple other states in support. Ultimately, the highest court in the land ruled that Texas lacked the “standing” for the case they attempted to bring forward.

The rejection of the Texas lawsuit comes as multiple other smaller courts dismiss cases and appeals brought forward by legal representatives for the president. According to Newsmax, the Michigan Supreme Court also dismissed an appeal from the Trump legal team yesterday.

The Failed Appeal in Michigan

In Michigan, the Trump legal team rose issues about how Detroit handled its absentee ballots. Ultimately, attorneys for the president argued that access to footage of ballot drop boxes was necessary; they also made the point that Republican poll watchers were not given appropriate access to the counting of absentee ballots.


After dismissal from a lower court in Michigan, the Trump legal team appealed to the state’s Supreme Court. However, the Michigan Supreme Court also agreed with lowered courts; the body decided that representatives for Trump didn’t have the ground to win their appeal.
It’s important to note that Michigan certified its election results for Joe Biden towards the end of last month.

What Happens Now?

President Trump’s legal team has informed the press of their plans to continue fighting; according to attorney Rudy Giuliani, the Trump legal team is not done, despite numerous tossed cases in the courts thus far.
On Monday, the Electoral College will convene and formally declare a winner of the 2020 presidential election. Since states have certified their votes and challenges to overturn Biden’s wins in certain states failed, it appears as though the Electoral College will ultimately declare the former vice president as the 2020 winner.


Meanwhile, the Trump legal team maintains that their litigation of this presidential election may very well carry into the new year. After the Supreme Court’s tossing of the Texas lawsuit, however, many conservatives are wondering what all is possible for the Trump legal team to do.
