Led By Giuliani, Trump Campaign Effort To Stop Certification Falters In Pennsylvania

Saturday’s order is the latest in a series of defeats in several key swing states where Trump’s legal team has sought to either halt or delay the certification of election results as part of the president’s longshot strategy to reverse the outcome.

In a statement following the decision, the Trump campaign vowed to take their case to the Supreme Court. «We are disappointed we did not at least get the opportunity to present our evidence at a hearing,» wrote Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, the campaign’s senior legal adviser.

Rick Hasen, a law professor at University of California, Irvine who writes about election law, said Brann’s decision marks a «dead end» for the Trump campaign.

«The campaign can try to appeal this to the Third Circuit and even to the Supreme Court, but this is such a dog of a case I cannot see any chance of success there, even before the most sympathetic judges,» he wrote. «Rudy had truly participated in the worst piece of election litigation I have ever seen, both in terms of the lawyering and the antidemocratic nature of what the lawsuit attempted to do.»
