The cases involved election disputes filed by former President Donald Trump and his allies in five states won by President Joe Biden: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Most involved challenges to absentee ballot procedures. Other than the disputes from Pennsylvania, the justices’ decision not to hear the cases was not surprising. The court had previously taken no action in those cases and in January had turned away pleas that the cases be fast-tracked, again suggesting the justices were not interested in hearing them.
