Prominent Donald Trump supporter Mike Lindell’s bid to challenge electronic voting systems in the Supreme Court faces significant hurdles, legal experts have emphasized, casting doubt on the viability of his efforts.

Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow, seeks to challenge the constitutionality of electronic voting systems, aligning himself with Arizona Republican Kari Lake, who alleges fraud in the state’s 2022 gubernatorial election, a claim repeatedly dismissed by courts.

This week, Lindell’s legal team filed a petition with the Supreme Court, aiming to revive Lake’s 2022 lawsuit, which was previously dismissed as “frivolous.” However, legal scholars are skeptical of Lindell’s prospects.

Greg Germain, a law professor at Syracuse University, characterized Lindell’s move as a publicity stunt, questioning the timeliness and legitimacy of his challenge. Germain noted that the Supreme Court’s original jurisdiction is limited, primarily involving disputes between states or cases involving foreign ambassadors, rather than serving as an investigative body for new evidence.

Similarly, Peter Shane, a law professor at New York University, highlighted the Supreme Court’s restricted authority to take original cases that bypass lower courts. Shane referenced Article III of the U.S. Constitution, which outlines the court’s limited jurisdiction to cases involving states or matters affecting diplomats.

Shane explained that even if Lindell’s challenge were based on Lake’s case, the Supreme Court would not entertain new evidence that hasn’t been presented in lower courts.

Lake’s petition to the Supreme Court alleges violations of state law in Maricopa County’s electronic voting systems, including uncertified software. However, Lindell and Maricopa County responses were only available after some time.

In February, a federal judge ordered Lindell to pay a software engineer $5 million after offering a reward for disproving claims about the 2020 presidential election’s validity.

Despite legal setbacks and widespread rejection of claims of election fraud, Trump, now the presumptive Republican presidential candidate for 2024, persists in asserting that the 2020 election was rigged against him.

As Lindell’s Supreme Court challenge unfolds, it underscores the ongoing dispute over election integrity and the enduring influence of Trump’s baseless allegations. However, legal experts remain skeptical of the prospects of overturning election results through such legal maneuvers, emphasizing the need for evidence-based claims and adherence to constitutional processes.

While Lindell’s efforts may energize segments of Trump’s support base, they also risk further eroding public trust in the electoral process if they are perceived as frivolous or lacking merit. 

Additionally, the legal battle underscores the broader challenges facing American democracy in an era of heightened polarization and misinformation. As the Supreme Court weighs whether to consider Lindell’s challenge, observers on all sides of the political spectrum will closely watch the outcome.
