Did the Supreme Court hear the case where Pennsylvania Judges rather than the Legislator changed voting rules and regulations? You know you really don't have to adopt the continuous smart ass tone. That is unless you do have to.
I believe the Supreme Court refused to hear that case didn't it?
I was serious in asking how those other cases turned out. As a Georgia resident and voter, I followed the challenges in Georgia because I have a vested interest in the outcomes. After seeing the disaster that the "overturn Georgia" effort became, I had a decidedly less vested interest in the proceedings in other states but really wouldn't mind a recap if you had one handy.

My apologies then. I would suggest at this point however that all of us have a vested interest how all of this turns out at the National level. It is my understanding that there are still some cases that will be presented to the SCOTUS after Biden is crowned.

Pardon my asking, but which cases?

Exactly. When the court refuses to hear a case because of lack of standing or merit, that is adjudication.
If they decline a case for lack of standing that is not adjudication. It is a statement saying-- you claim may be valid and need decided but you personally do not have a basis for the claim. Someone else may be a valid complainant and we would hear it from them, but not you.

You are correct.
But on the case that went to the Supreme Court that I think was initially filed by the State of Texas, I think Trump was on that as well as a bunch of other states.

Someone is going to have to explain to me why Trump lacked standing on that case, not to mention that it seems to me like very citizen in the USA had standing since this probably invalidated their votes for POTUS.

I disagree with all the immediate past statements about SCOTUS adjudication. If the court refuses to take a case, it means nothing about standing or the merits of the case. The court takes cases where people do not have standing (and then rules against them because they do not have standing). The court declines to take cases where people do have standing. The court declines to take cases where the court below obviously got it wrong. The court takes cases where the court below obviously got it right.

The court gets thousands of petitions for certiorari every year and grants maybe 80 of them. To believe that declining to take a case has a particular meaning is folly. In some individual cases, it is possible to speculate with some bit of confidence the reasons why. But you cannot reasonably believe that every case that is declined means the court believes that petitioning party does not have a basis for a claim. The shear numbers dictate against that.
SCOTUS is not an error correcting court. They take cases of great public import. They do not take every case where they believe the petitioner's claims have merit.

I do not understand how, hypothetically, California could ever have standing to decide that "Texas voted wrong". That, at its core, is what I am having trouble grasping and would be appreciative if someone could explain what I'm missing.

And you think a case that is about whether or not a state allowed the illegal votes for President of the United States is not "great public import" ?

It doesn't ever get to be greater public import in this United States of America. They should all be impeached for cowardice if you ask me.

It seems completely obvious to me. I voted for Trump and if he was not elected because of voting fraud and scam because the state of Pennsylvania allowed unlawful votes to be counted and those led to the election of Biden...I got screwed as did every other person in this country that voted for Trump. I have standing because I'm an American citizen who voted legally and was cheated because some states allowed fraud to give someone else the election.

That does not give you standing.

Phantom rainbow farting purple unicorns certainly do not grant standing.

Your vote counted just as much as everyone else's. That clearly isn't standing either.

Neither you as a Texas resident nor the political leaders of your state have standing to decide how any other state conducts their elections nor the results other states' elections "should" produce. To allow outsiders to dictate election results undermines the whole point of democratic process.

Allowing fraud and scams that allow people to violate the law and the state constitutions to dictate election results undermines the whole point of a democratic process.

I guess my reply to this is "but there wasn't fraud and scams".

Obviously, this is just going to be the next "lost cause".

In the year 2180, Southerners (mostly) are still going to be complaining about "fraud".

I suppose their Trump flags will fit next to their Confederate flags?

This is factually accurate but not germane to the 2020 POTUS election nor Texas standing to dictate election results in other states.
