The United States Supreme Court scheduled a number of contest-of-election lawsuits to be considered later this month when it conferences on Feb. 19.
The case listing, available here, includes Timothy King v. Gretchen Whitmer, Gov. of Michigan…lawsuits filed by President Donald J. Trump’s campaign in both Pennsylvania and Wisconsin…the Pennsylvania lawsuit brought forward by Rep. Mike Kelly…and Lin Wood’s case in Georgia.
Each case alleges unlawful election-related conduct that impacted the result of the election. Among the concerns addressed — expansion of mail-in voting by elections officials changing rules in contravention of state election laws, lack of adequate security measures around mail ballots, concerns with machine vote tabulation and denying meaningful access to poll watchers.
The Supreme Court refused to fast-track the cases earlier this year.
Even if the Supreme Court takes up any of the lawsuits, they are unlikely to be heard prior to October.
