Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. v. Boockvar (Vote By Mail Intervention)

Lawsuit brought by the Trump campaign seeking to disqualify mail-in ballots deposited in drop boxes and to stop Pennsylvania counties from counting certain mail-in ballots. In dismissing the case, the court described Trump's evidence as "scant" and "speculative."

People are saying

"In [its] briefing, [the Trump campaign] relied on hypotheticals, rather than actual events." - Judge J. Nicholas Ranjan

"Based on this evidentiary record, construed in [Trump]'s favor, the Court cannot conclude that there exists 'patent and fundamental unfairness.'" - Judge J. Nicholas Ranjan

"The problem with [Trump's] theory is that there does not appear to be any law to support it." - Judge J. Nicholas Ranjan

"There is nothing in the record to establish that potential voter fraud and dilution [through mail-in voting and use of drop boxes] will impact Republicans more than Democrats." - Judge J. Nicholas Ranjan
