In a brief order issued just before 6:30 p.m., the justices explained that Texas lacked a legal right to sue, known as standing, and did not have a legal interest in how other states carried out their elections. As a result, the court rejected Texas’ lawsuit without considering the merits of the state’s case.
With the Electoral College vote slated to take place in just three days, Friday’s order as a practical matter puts a stop to efforts to contest the results of the election through litigation.

The Texas case in the Supreme Court has been hyped up by Trump, who is falsely claiming he won reelection while refusing to concede to Biden.
A combination of the antiviral drug remdesivir and the anti-inflammatory drug baricitinib reduced recovery time and accelerated improvement, especially among patients receiving supplemental oxygen without invasive ventilation, according to a large, international study of hospitalized COVID-19 patients published in the New England Journal of Medicine today.
Severe COVID-19 appears to be associated with an exaggerated inflammatory response in some patients, leading researchers to consider anti-inflammatory medications like baricitinib as potential therapies. Remdesivir, approved by the US Food and Drug Administration on Oct 22 to treat hospitalized COVID patients, has thus far met with mixed results when used alone.
Researchers at 67 trial sites in eight countries, including the United States, randomly assigned 1,033 patients hospitalized with COVID-19–related pneumonia to a treatment group (515) receiving a combination of the two drugs, and a control group (518) receiving only remdesivir and placebo.
The COVID-19 crisis hit what Los Angeles County officials called “uncharted territory” Friday, as the daily case count surged dramatically to 13,815 and total cases topped 500,000, the latest signs that the virus is spreading with ferocious speed.
“We’re on a very dangerous track to see unprecedented and catastrophic suffering,” said L.A. County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer. “At this point, we’re seeing daily numbers of cases and hospitalizations that we’ve not experienced and, frankly, did not anticipate.”
In a time that is so very deeply polarized, I cannot think of a person, group or institution other than the Supreme Court that could do better for the country right now. Supporters of the president who have been gaslighted into believing that there has been a multi-state conspiracy to steal the election recognize that the court is not a liberal institution. If the court will tell the truth, the country will listen. Source: Editorial: Don’t just deny Texas’ original action. Decimate it. – SCOTUSblog
“The real dispute here is whether or not there were erroneous interpretations of law used in the recount involved in whether the ballots should be counted or not counted,” Simanek said, adding that “the court is satisfied” that Wisconsin correctly interpreted those laws.
Simanek issued the ruling immediately after a hearing with lawyers for Trump and for Dane and Milwaukee counties. It also included lawyers representing Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, whom Trump sued personally even though they have no involvement in Wisconsin’s election administration.
The judge said he was acting quickly because Wisconsin was the only state to miss the “safe harbor” deadline before the Electoral College formalizes Biden’s victory on Monday.
“The bottom line here is that the court should do everything to ensure the will of the voters prevails,” Simanek said.
