The state of Texas sued Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin with the US Supreme Court challenging their unlawful election procedures.

Texas argues these lawless states violated the US Constitution because they made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures as spelled out in the US Constitution.

The Texas lawsuit reads:

Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1251(a) and this Court’s Rule 17, the State of Texas respectfully seeks leave to file the accompanying Bill of Complaint against the states of Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (collectively, the
“Defendant States”) challenging their administration of the 2020 presidential election.

As set forth in the accompanying brief and complaint, the 2020 election suffered from significant and unconstitutional irregularities in the DefendantStates:

  • Non-legislative actors’ purported amendments to States’ duly enacted election laws, in violation of the Electors Clause’s vesting State legislatures with plenary authority regarding the appointment of presidential electors
  • As set forth in the accompanying brief and complaint, the 2020 election suffered from significant and unconstitutional irregularities in the DefendantStates:
  • Non-legislative actors’ purported amendments to States’ duly enacted election laws, in violation of the Electors Clause’s vesting State legislatures with plenary authority regarding the appointment of presidential electors

Texas approached the Supreme Court directly because Article III provides that it is the court of first impression on subjects where it has original jurisdiction, such as disputes between two or more states.
