Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem issued the following statement in response to the decision by the US Supreme Court to dismiss the lawsuit brought by the Texas Attorney General.

“For citizens of North Dakota who expressed strong support to have our state join in the amicus brief written by the state of Missouri, and also for those who expressed equally strong disappointment that we did, I have said from the beginning that the only place that can resolve this issue once and for all is the US Supreme Court.

The highest Court in the land has now done so. It now appears that all reasonably arguable legal challenges have been exhausted, and the members of the Electoral College will meet across the country on Monday, December 14th, as required by the Constitution, and cast their votes for the next President.”
