A federal appeals court on Monday granted the Trump campaign’s request for an expedited review of a district court’s rejection of the campaign’s Pennsylvania case.
Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis tweeted the news with an image of the court record, which stated the campaign has until 4 p.m. to file its appeal.
The campaign is appealing U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Brann’s dismissal on Saturday of a lawsuit seeking an order to stop the certification of the election in Pennsylvania. Most Pennsylvania counties are expected to certify their results Monday.
Ellis, along with Trump personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, said in a statement the the district court’s dismissal “turns out to help us in our strategy to get expeditiously to the US Supreme Court.”
“Although we fully disagree with this opinion, we’re thankful to the Obama-appointed judge for making this anticipated decision quickly, rather than simply trying to run out the clock,” they wrote. (Read more from “Appeals Court to Review Trump’s Pennsylvania Case” HERE)
