A Supreme Court Judge in Georgia, James Bass, has dismissed a lawsuit by the state Republican Party and US President Donald Trump asking that the county followed state laws on processing absentee ballots.
However, the Chatham County court did not provide an explanation for his decision at the close of a roughly one-hour hearing on Thursday.
The U.S. President had accused his opponent of electoral fraud and threatened court action, shortly after Joe Biden via a televised speech from his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, said, “When the count is finished, we believe we will be the winners.”
While the suit had raised concerns about 53 absentee ballots that poll observers said was not part of an original batch of ballots, County elections officials testified that all 53 ballots had been received on time.
Meanwhile, Trump and his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, still have paths to winning the White House.
Moreover, reports state that Biden has reached 264 electoral votes against 214 so far for Trump By flipping the northern battlegrounds of Michigan and Wisconsin and also winning formerly pro-Trump Arizona.
