Justices throw out Texas lawsuit that sought to block election outcome – SCOTUSblog

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.
