US Supreme Court Rejects Texas Lawsuit, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito the Only Dissenters

The United States Supreme Court has denied the Texas lawsuit that attempted to overturn the presidential election in four key swing states. Justice Samuel Alito issued his dissent with Justice Clarence Thomas joining him.


The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution. Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.

Statement of Justice Alito, with whom Justice Thomas joins:

In my view, we do not have discretion to deny the filing of a bill of complaint in a case that falls within our original jurisdiction. See Arizona v. California, 589 U. S._ (Feb. 24, 2020) (Thomas, J., dissenting). I would therefore grant the motion to file the bill of complaint but would not grant other relief, and I express no view on any other issue.”

Many were waiting to see what would come next from the Supreme Court. Unfortunately for Trump supporters and those who believed it was constitutionally right to have at least been heard it was denied.

This comes as another blow to the Trump campaign’s efforts to expose what they saw as voter fraud and an unprecedented mail-in voting situation due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

It’s unclear what’s next for the Trump team and the Republican party but we will surely hear from President Trump and others very soon.

Previously we reported that Attorney Lin Wood had a separate case still going with a lower court related to the presidential election in Georgia, but even if successful, that alone would not be enough to flip the election for President Trump from Joe Biden. President Trump has not yet responded via tweet to this breaking and unfortunate news.
