According to lawyers, the lawsuits are unlikely to change the results of the vote.
On Tuesday, a court in Pennsylvania will hear arguments in a lawsuit filed by President Donald Trump’s campaign headquarters on November 9 to prevent the state’s election authorities from declaring Democrat Joe Biden the winner of the election.
Hours before the hearing, Trump’s staff asked for permission for trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, to appear in court. On Saturday, Trump tweeted that Giuliani had led a new legal team to continue the legal fight.
On Monday, three lawyers representing the trump company announced their recusal, saying that the headquarters had agreed to this. Judge Matthew Brown allowed two of the three lawyers to withdraw from the case.
Legal experts believe that the lawsuits are unlikely to change the outcome of the election. A senior lawyer from Biden’s team called the lawsuits “theatrical.”
The Campaign staff and Trump supporters filed lawsuits in several states, trying to challenge the election result.
By pulling ahead in Pennsylvania, Biden won more than the 270 electoral votes needed to win. According to Edison Research calculations published on Friday, Biden has 306 electoral votes, while Trump has 232.
The lawsuit in Pennsylvania is related to allegations that voters were improperly allowed to make corrections to ballots that were declared invalid for technical reasons.
The Trump campaign says that in districts sympathetic to the Democrats, mailed ballots with defects were illegally identified before Election Day so that voters had time to correct mistakes.
Pennsylvania authorities asked the court to dismiss the lawsuit, saying that all counties were allowed to inform voters about their ballots’ errors, although this was not mandatory.
The state’s election authorities also emphasize that this is a minimal number of ballots. Biden is projected to lead trump by more than 70,000 votes in Pennsylvania, 49.9 percent to 48.8 percent.
State Secretary Kathy Boockvar has officially announced the election results on November 23, so judge Brann will soon have to decide.
