Lawsuits filed by the same attorney challenging election results in four disputed states have been withdrawn, CNBC reported.
The lawsuits, filed by attorney James Bopp Jr. – previously named one of the most influential lawyers in America by the National Law Journal – on behalf of voters in Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, disputed ballots as illegally cast, CNBC reported.
Bopp told the business TV channel and website in an email, attorney-client privilege precluded him from discussing the case, "and because I do not telegraph my next moves, I cannot comment."
Democrat nominee Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump by approximately 70,000 votes in Pennsylvania, 20,000 votes in Wisconsin, 14,000 votes in Georgia, and 145,000 in Michigan, accordingto The Associated Press.
All have been tainted with allegations of unmatched signatures on absentee ballots, changed dates, late arriving ballots, among other charges.
CNBC said the suit in Wisconsin was withdrawn "without prejudice," meaning it could be resurrected in another filing.
The brief claimed, votes in the counties of Milwaukee, Dane, and Menominee should be voided because "the sudden flood" of mail-in ballots left election workers unable to carefully review those ballots for fraudulent ones.
"This case was clearly designed to spread misinformation about the security and integrity of Michigan elections," Michigan's Democrat Attorney General Dana Nessel claimed in a statement.
