People are saying

"The allegations in the Complaint rest on speculation rather than duly pled facts. They cannot, as a matter of law, sustain this contest." - Judge Emily K. Richardson

"Plaintiff's claims are also barred by the equitable doctrine of laches . . . [because] Plaintiff challenges the validity the presidential election after it has already been conducted based on procedures which were adopted long before the election and upon which election officials and voters alike relied." - Judge Emily K. Richardson
