The ruling is in....the recount starts Monday. Not sure what this des to the state law suits.
But, we will watch to see over the next few hours whether or not Michigan Republicans, or President-elect Donald Trump, appeal Judge Goldsmith’s decision to the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. Also, we’ll be watching to see what happens in separate lawsuits filed with the Michigan Court of Appeals and the state Supreme Court.
But, let’s say there was an appeal. Let’s even say that the Court of Appeals overturned Judge Goldsmith’s opinion. Well, the recount would, barring more legal action, begin again tomorrow evening or Wednesday - simply reverting back to that initial two-day waiting period in state law.
In his ruling, Goldsmith wrote that "budgetary concerns are not sufficiently significant to risk the disenfranchisement of Michigan's nearly 5 million voters."
