Another Trump backed lawsuit to overturn the November 2020 election has failed to be heard due to lack of standing.
He ruled that US Representative Louie Gohmert of Texas and a slate of Republican electors from Arizona could not show they suffered any personal harm “fairly traceable” to Pence’s allegedly unlawful conduct and, therefore, lacked legal standing to bring the case.
The Texas suit last month was similarly dismissed, and lack of standing seems a common result which prevents arguments from being heard.
The court, in a brief unsigned order, said Texas lacked standing to pursue the case, saying it “has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another state conducts its elections.”
Ultimately these suits are being pressed by some of the most senior politicians within the US, they are backed by presumably competent and expensive lawyers. Why are these suits failing at the first and most obvious hurdle and failing to even present their arguments in court?
