An attempt by President Donald Trump to ensure a second term in office through the court has suffered a setback.

The American president’s hope of overturning the victory of Joe Biden hit a brick wall, as Porter Wright Morris & Arthur, a law firm representing the embattled president and his campaign in Pennsylvania, withdrew its legal service.

Trump has failed to concede defeat to his Democratic challenger after the 77-yer-old former vice president crossed the 270- threshold required for the presidency during the Tuesday, November 3 election in the US.

The president’s legal team which Porter Wright Morris & Arthur was part of had filed a lawsuit challenging Biden’s victory in some states where the projected president-elect won.

However, on Thursday, November 12, the law firm withdrew from a case filed on behalf of President Trump’s campaign, with the decision coming three days after the lawsuit was filed.

The lawsuit, which alleged irregularities in the voting process, was withdrawn in a motion in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania with no explanation given.
