Over a dozen election cases filed by Republicans so far: Law firm leaves Trump lawsuit in Pennsylvania
Trump's campaign had reportedly paid $700,000 as fees to law firm Porter Wright Morris & Arthur to fight the election case in Pennsylvania to block certification of the results by the State. Although in several cases the late ballots do not make any substantial change in the margin of Biden, Trump has gone in appeal to the US Supreme Court for a review of the lower court orders.

WASHINGTON, Nov 14: Law firm Porter Wright Morris & Arthur has withdrawn from the lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania on behalf of Trump campaign to stop the State from certifying the results favouring Joe Biden, his rival in the presidential election. Trump's campaign had reportedly paid $700,000 as fees.

Over a dozen cases had been filed by the Republicans when they found Trump was losing the initial lead in the counting of the votes polled in the November 3 presidential election. President Donald Trump, their presidential candidate seeking re-election, suspected that disappearing early leads in counting was the result of sabotage by the Dems. He started framing 'conjectural theories.'

On November 7, Trump claimed that he had "such a big lead" on election night only to see the leads "miraculously disappearing" later in the week!

In an initial setback, the Republicans lost the suit in a Pennsylvania federal court to block some 9,300 postal ballots that reached the counting centres later than the polling day. The State Supreme Court ruled that ballots arriving up to November 6 should be accepted in view of the hardships being caused by the unprecedented pandemic in the exercise of franchise and transportation of the ballots by the postal staff.

Although in several cases the late ballots do not make any substantial change in the margin of Biden, Trump has gone in appeal to the US Supreme Court for a review of the lower court order. In a Philadelphia case too, the judge refused an order to reject the late ballots.

The case in Arizona for an inspection of ballots in Phoenix and the one in Michigan before the Detroit judges to stop certification of results were also lost to the Trump campaign. On Friday Trump lost cases in three States.

In fact Trump's campaign against early voting, especially mail-in voting, had started over a month before the election, suspecting Democrats' call to the electorate to cast in- absentee votes early to prevent a raging coronavirus from catching at polling centres likely to be crowded. Trump had reportedly stopped additional funds to the postal departments to employ more staff to thwart postal voting.

Polling was the highest ever in US history. Biden got 75 million, the highest, and higher than the highest of then Obama's 69 million in 2008. Trump got 70 million votes (2016 - 60 million).
