Supreme Court won’t hear any election challenges until after Inauguration Day

Although President Donald Trump released a video in which he called for a smooth transition of power to the Biden administration on Jan. 20, challenges to last year’s general election are still going forward.

When those case will be brought before the Supreme Court isn’t clear, however, as the nation’s highest court is apparently in no hurry to hear them.

Nothing heard until after Inauguration

The Supreme Court announced Monday that no election challenges will be heard until after President-elect Joe Biden assumes office, the Washington Examiner reported.

At issue are claims that Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin acted unconstitutionally in changing their election laws regarding mail-in ballots. All of the four states were carried by Biden in November after having been won by Trump four years earlier.

John Eastman, one of the president’s attorneys, said that the Supreme Court had “effectively” prevented the cases from getting an expedited hearing anyway given the time frame, the Examiner reported.

Despite the legal challenges no longer having an impact on the 2020 race, Eastman said he still believes that it is important for them to be heard given the potential effect they could have on future elections.

Lawsuits filed by the Trump campaign were not the only ones denied by the Supreme Court to receive an expedited hearing. Cases brought by Pennsylvania state Rep. Mike Kelly and Georgia attorney Lin Wood were turned down as well.

Cruz: Hopeful the court will act

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced in December that he would assist in arguing Kelly’s lawsuit concerning changes in Pennsylvania’s election law.

“When you look at a country where 39 percent of Americans right now believe this last election was rigged, that’s a real problem for confidence in the integrity of our electoral system,” Cruz told Fox News host Sean Hannity.

“So, I’m hopeful the Supreme Court will step forward to its responsibility and resolve this case and resolve other cases as needed,” the senator continued.

“It raises pure issues of law, and I believe the Supreme Court should choose to take the case,” he added. “I think they should hear the appeal.”

The Republican senator also took issue with how Pennsylvania’s state Supreme Court had handled the issue, describing it as “a partisan Democratic court that issued multiple decisions just on their face contrary to the law.”
