1. This thread is going to be the entirety of the intro to Judge Brann's dismissal of the Trump campaign's federal lawsuit in Pennsylvania.

It lays everything out beautifully.
2. "In this action, the Trump Campaign and the Individual Plaintiffs
(collectively, the “Plaintiffs”) seek to discard millions of votes legally cast by
Pennsylvanians from all corners – from Greene County to Pike County, and everywhere in between."
3. "Plaintiffs ask this Court to disenfranchise almost seven million voters. This Court has been unable to find any case in which a plaintiff has sought such a drastic remedy in the contest of an election, in terms of the sheer volume of votes asked to be invalidated.
4. "One might expect that when
seeking such a startling outcome, a plaintiff would come formidably armed with compelling legal arguments and factual proof of rampant corruption , such that this Court would have no option...
5. "...but to regrettably grant the proposed injunctive relief despite the impact it would have on such a large group of citizens.

That has not happened.

Instead, this Court has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations...
6. "...unpled in the operative
complaint and unsupported by evidence.

In the United States of America, this
cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state.

Our people, laws, and institutions demand more.
7. "At bottom, Plaintiffs have failed to meet their burden to state a claim upon which
relief may be granted. Therefore, I grant Defendants’ motions and dismiss
Plaintiffs’ action with prejudice."
