The move came when on the same day, Trump lost the lawsuit filed in the lower court saying there was nothing illegal about the election or subsequent recount in the state's two largest counties Dane and Milwaukee. Trump claimed to have more than 221,000 votes barred in these counties.

On Dec 14, 2020, The Wisconsin Supreme court rejected President Donald Trump's election lawsuit with prejudice- meaningTrump cannot refile it in the same court. Trump lost in his bid to overturn his loss to Democrat Joe Biden. In the 4-3 ruling, the court said three of Trump’s four claims were filed too late and the other was without merit. The judge in the case, Brett Ludwig, who was appointed by Trump wrote that Trump “has not proved that defendants violated his rights under the Electors Clause.” “To the contrary, the record shows Wisconsin’s Presidential Electors are being determined in the very manner directed by the Legislature, as required by Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution,” the judge said.
