Trump, Biden’s Campaign Lawyers On Standby If US Election Outcome Heads To Court

Washington: The United States President Donald Trump and his Democratic opponent Joe Biden have assembled armies of powerful lawyers for the possibility that the battle for the White House will be decided not at the ballot box but in court.

As per the latest updates, 300 cases have already been filed in states across the country.

Dozens of attorneys for the Republicans and the Democrats are already to clash in courts over mailed-in ballot deadlines and other issues brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to experts, the legal challenge this year could centre on Pennsylvania, widely considered a must-win for Trump.

Over the weekend, Trump had also hinted that he would go to court over the validity of mailed ballots in Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania’s apex court ordered an extension for mail-in ballots till Friday, November 6.

Republicans moved to block the order, the Supreme Court left that order in place but did not rule out revisiting the decision.

“We will have a sizable contingent of lawyers who will be ready to fend off any of the shenanigans that Democrats are trying,” Tim Murtaugh, the Trump campaign communications director, said last week.

On the side of Biden, his campaign’s election protection program includes a special national litigation team which includes hundreds of lawyers led by Walter Dellinger, acting solicitor general in the Clinton administration, and Donald Verrilli, a solicitor general under President Barack Obama, among others.
