CNN reports that a Michigan judge denied a GOP lawsuit that sought to block certification of the state’s vote, which was won by Biden. If the vote were not certified, it would have discounted the people’s choice. The lawsuit was an attack on democracy. Fortunately the judge rejected it.

“It would be an unprecedented exercise of judicial activism for this Court to stop the certification process of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers,” wrote Chief Judge Timothy Kenny.

Attorney David Fink, representing Detroit, said at a hearing Wednesday that blocking the finalization of Michigan’s votes would either knock the state out of the Electoral College, kicking the selection of the president to the US House of Representatives, or would allow the Republican-held state legislature to try to seat its own slate of electors.
