(Reuters) – A federal judge on Saturday dismissed a lawsuit filed by President Donald Trump’s campaign that sought to throw out millions of mail-in votes in Pennsylvania.

The ruling handed down by Matthew Brann, a judge for the middle district of Pennsylvania, was the latest blow to Trump’s flailing efforts to overturn the Nov. 3 election, which he lost to Democratic President-elect Joe Biden.

Brann described the case as “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations.”
