A lawsuit from Trump's campaign is struck down in Pennsylvania.

Brann ruled out the case on the basis that there is a lack of evidence to support the allegation, and the constitution doesn't support the demands.

Brann ruled out the case on the basis that there is a lack of evidence to support the allegation, and the constitution doesn't support the demands.Soon after the election results trickled in on Nov. 3, the Trump campaign filed many lawsuits in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin. The lawsuit alleged that fraudulent activities and electoral malpractices took place during the election. Many of them were dismissed by the courts, saying that the lawsuit's allegations were baseless as they lacked evidence.

Trump's campaign has been pushing to fight the election results after Biden won the key states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Arizona. They have been pursuing all legal actions asking the officials to invalidate ballots alleging massive fraud.

In Pennsylvania, where Donald Trump held 20 electoral ballots, the Trump campaign had filed more than 15 legal challenges. The court has dismissed a few of the lawsuits.

The Trump campaign filed a second amended complaint on Nov. 18. They argued that the state had violated the U.S. Constitution's guarantee act of equal protection under the law. He demanded the court to invalidate millions of ballots in the county.

On Nov. 21, Judge Matthew Brann dismissed the case. In his ruling, he considered that Trump’s team had presented strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations in their complaints about mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania. He mentioned that in the United States of America, the court would not justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the sixth most populated state voters.

In a statement responding to the ruling, the Trump attorneys said the decision turns out to help them in their strategy to get expeditiously to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, had argued first time in court on behalf of the Trump campaign while serving as the head of the campaign’s legal effort.
