Lawyer Sidney Powell said Thursday that the U.S. Supreme Court appeared to reject two cases regarding alleged election fraud in Wisconsin and Arizona, while adding that two cases were docketed in Michigan and Georgia but won’t be heard until mid-January.
According to the lawyer’s tweets, the court’s “electronic filing system shows our EMERGENCY Petitions docketed for Georgia [and] Michigan,” but she said the Supreme Court is “SLOW-walking” and Michigan and Georgia have to issue responses by Jan. 14.
“Today it FINALLY submitted our #Arizona & #Wisconsin EMERGENCY petitions filed Friday INEXPLICABLY rejected them,” Powell wrote, while she added that the cases “were submitted electronically Saturday morning and all copies hand-delivered and fees paid.”
Powell alleged that Supreme Court clerks didn’t provide a reason for the rejection of the Arizona and Wisconsin suits.
The Michigan and Georgia lawsuits were thrown out in state courts earlier in the month. U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Batten dismissed the Georgia lawsuit, saying that the plaintiffs Powell were representing “simply do not have standing to bring these claims.”

U.S. District Judge Linda Parker, based in Detroit, rejected Powell’s lawsuit and said it“seems to be less about achieving the relief Plaintiffs seek—as much of that relief is beyond the power of this Court and more about the impact of their allegations on People’s faith in the democratic process and their trust in our government.”
Powell had claimed “massive election fraud” in the Michigan lawsuit, adding there were violations of Michigan’s Election Code and the U.S. Constitution.
“The scheme and artifice to defraud was for the purpose of illegally and fraudulently manipulating the vote count to manufacture an election of Joe Biden as president of the United States,” Powell’s lawsuit said. The fraud was committed in many ways, but the most “troubling, insidious, and egregious ploy” involved the “systemic adaptation of old-fashioned ‘ballot-stuffing,’” according to the suit.
The Michigan and Georgia cases are King v. Whitmer, 20-815, and In Re Coreco Ja’Qan Pearson, et al., Petitioners, 20-816.
