BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- As millions of ballots are still being counted across the nation, President Donald Trump has said his campaign will be looking to the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene in the presidential election. While his suggestion has been deemed premature, countless election cases have alredy been filed across the country and a superior court judge dismissed a lawsuit on Thursday filed by the campaign that accused elections officials in Georgia of mishandling absentee ballots. IU judicial experts are available to comment on the likelihood that the results will be contested in court and what the implications may be if this happens.
