A federal appeals court rejected a legal challenge seeking to block Joe Biden from securing victory in the state of Georgia.
Per Reuters “U.S. District Judge Steven Grimberg, who was nominated by Trump, rejected attorney L. Lin Wood’s arguments and found in a Nov. 20 opinion that the lawyer had no standing to sue.”
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit in Atlanta agreed with the lower court ruling Wood had failed to “to allege a particularized injury” and also that Georgia had already certified the election, making the challenge moot.
“We may not entertain post-election contests about garden-variety issues of vote counting and misconduct that may properly be filed in state courts,” the appeals court wrote in the decision.
