Seeking Cert

The Philadelphia Inquirer on the Trump campaign's recent effort to obtain a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Pennsylvania court changes to state election law. An excerpt:

Instead, it challenges three Pennsylvania Supreme Court decisions on mail ballots and says the state court overstepped its constitutional role. Those opinions, which resolved multiple cases, prohibited counties from comparing mail ballot signatures to those on file; said campaigns and political parties can’t challenge ballots as they are being processed and counted; allowed limitations on observers to the vote count in Philadelphia; and allowed ballots to count even if voters had forgotten to fill out the address or date on the envelope.
