A Wisconsin court refused a request from pro-Trump groups that had asked for recounts in Wisconsin to be suspended, allowing Green Party nominee Jill Stein’s lawsuit to go forward.

The Great America PAC, the Stop Hillary PAC and Ronald R. Johnson collectively filed a lawsuit against the Wisconsin Elections Commission. Organizations backing President-elect Trump took legal action earlier this week to block recount efforts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — all blue-wall states Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton had been expected to win on election night.

Trump’s attorney issued a complaint on Thursday saying Stein’s suit lacked evidence of fraud in those three states.

“Despite being no more than a blip on the electoral radar, Stein has now commandeered Pennsylvania’s electoral process, with an eye toward doing the same to the Electoral College,” the Trump complaint said. “There is no evidence — or even an allegation — that any tampering with Pennsylvania’s voting systems actually occurred.

“It does not offer any evidence that a single voting machine in Pennsylvania was hacked, let alone on a scale sufficient to impact the outcome of the Pennsylvania election,” the complaint said.

The deadline for recount efforts is Dec. 12.
