Published on: December 11, 2020

Eighteen states, including Arizona, have now joined Texas in a Supreme Court lawsuit against the states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia.

Texas attorney general Ken Paxton filed an amicus brief (amicus curiae) or ‘friend of the court’ brief was filed with the high court earlier Wednesday. The states of Missouri, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia have all signed on to the brief that backs the Texas suit.

Arizona was the latest state to file an amicus brief on Wednesday bringing the total to 18 states.

The Texas Lawsuit Is On The Docket – The Supreme Court Will Determine The Fate Of The 2020 Election

Just as predicted before the election even occurred, it would be contested and handled by the Supreme Court. The following article was written back in September:

According to the American Bar Association, “‘Friend of the court’ or amicus curiae briefs are often filed in appellate cases heard by the U.S. Supreme Court and state supreme courts, as well as intermediate courts of appeal. And there is considerable evidence that amicus briefs have influence.” On Tuesday evening, the Supreme Court ordered the defendant states to reply by 3 p.m. on Thursday, December 10.

“It’s not unusual,” SMU Constitutional Law Professor Dale Carpenter told CBS 11. “I don’t think it indicates anything very important… I think the court will act quickly on Thursday.” Carpenter added: “Ken Paxton is asking that Republican state legislatures in four states be allowed to displace the will of the voters in those States and choose their own slate of electors, presumably to hand the election to Donald Trump in January. The Supreme Court is not going to allow that to happen.”

We will see.
