A judge dismissed Rep. Louis Gohmert’s election lawsuit against VP Mike Pence seeking to effectively overturn election results, Your Content has learned.

The federal judge on Friday dismissed a bid by Texas-native Rep. Louie Gohmert and other Republicans that sought to endow Vice President Pence with the legal authority to effectively overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral win.

In his ruling, Texas-based U.S. District Judge Jeremy Kernodle, a Trump appointee, said the GOP plaintiffs lacked standing. The judge found that Gohmert suffered no legally recognizable injury, reports The Hill.
