Federal judge dismisses Trump campaign's Pennsylvania lawsuit

Nov 22, 2020 11:08 IST

Donald Trump presented "strained" legal arguments without merit and "speculative accusations" that were not supported by evidence, a US federal judge ruled as she dismissed the Pennsylvania lawsuit, in a major setback to the US president's efforts to challenge the November 3 election results. The judge turned down a request for an injunction in the case in Pennsylvania to challenge the polls, which has been won by Trump's Democratic rival Joe Biden. In her scathing opinion, Judge Brann said the Trump campaign asked the court to "disenfranchise" almost seven million voters. Trump has refused to concede the November 3 election and has filed multiple lawsuits challenging the poll results in several states.
