The Trump campaign has announced a new lawsuit in Pennsylvania, seeking an emergency injunction to stop state officials from certifying Joe Biden's victory in the state:…
The docket number for the case is 20-cv-02078 in the Middle District of Pennsylvania
Lawsuit mixes a variety of different allegations into a broad claim that the use of mail ballots in PA was suspect

Some of it complains about guidance issued by state officials months ago. Currently no affidavits to support other claims of irregularities

Here's an example of the sort of allegations being made. Unclear who the witness is and part of the claim appears to be hearsay.

(Also includes a typo.)…
Status conference in the Trump campaign's Pennsylvania federal lawsuit set for 3pm today:…

Case is brought by four Nevada Republicans, rather than Trump campaign (despite the press conference they held yesterday)
