Trump’s election lawsuit leads to 3rd Circuit grant for expedited review
Campaign has just hours to file a brief in the case following the court’s decision
Associated Press, November 23, 2020:
The Third Circuit Court of Appeals granted the Trump campaign’s request for an expedited review of a lower court’s decision to dismiss a lawsuit over voting in Pennsylvania.
Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis tweeted the news with an image of the court record Monday morning.
The appeal comes after U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Brann in Pennsylvania threw out the campaign’s lawsuit, which sought an injunction that would stop the certification of the election in Pennsylvania. Most counties in the state are expected to certify their results on Monday.
The Trump campaign argued that the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection under the law was violated by the state when counties took different measures to inform voters of technical issues that arose with the unprecedented number of mail-in ballots.
Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, along with seven counties that were sued by the Trump campaign and where Joe Biden led, argued Trump had already raised similar claims.
The Third Circuit’s order says the Trump campaign has until 4 p.m. local time Monday to file a brief supporting its argument for overturning Brann’s decision. Boockvar has until the same time Tuesday to file theirs.
It remains to be seen whether the Third Circuit will call for oral arguments before issuing a ruling.
