Trump v. Kemp (Decertification)

Trump lawsuit seeking to decertify the Georgia general election results and to declare the presidential election in Georgia as "failed." The court denied the requested relief. Trump voluntarily dismissed the case two days later, claiming the parties reached an out-of-court settlement agreement. There was no such agreement.

People are saying

"Plaintiff seeks an extraordinary and unprecedented remedy: the decertification of the votes cast in the presidential election, after millions of people lawfully cast their ballots. To interfere with the result of an election that has already concluded and has been audited and certified on multiple occasions would be unprecedented and harm the public in countless ways. ... Granting injunctive relief here would breed confusion, undermine the public's trust in the election, and potentially disenfranchise of millions of Georgia voters." - Judge Mark H. Cohen

"If this Court did grant the relief requested, it would not change the result of the November 3,2020, Presidential Election that Joseph R. Biden, Jr. obtained the 270 or more electoral votes needed for election as President." - Judge Mark H. Cohen
