The Wisconsin Supreme Court refuses to hear Trump’s appeal over the state’s election results

The Supreme Court in the state of Wisconsin refused to hear a lawsuit filed by US President Donald Trump’s campaign to challenge the results of the presidential elections that were held on November 3 in the state on Thursday, in the latest in a series of court battles lost by the campaign.

Trump’s team filed the lawsuit challenging the election results in Wisconsin seeking to nullify the 221,323 votes cast by means other than going to the polls, directly to the state’s Supreme Court on Tuesday.

US President-elect Joe Biden won the majority of the vote in Wisconsin, beating Trump by nearly 200,000 votes, according to the state election commission that approved Biden’s victory on Monday.

Trump is refusing to accept the election result and continues to challenge it in the courts, but to no avail. 

He alleges, without providing evidence, that the election was marred by widespread fraud.

In its refusal to hear the lawsuit, the Wisconsin Supreme Court said that its petitioners could file it in a lower court. 

It is not yet clear whether the Trump campaign will do so.
