Stenehjem: No cost for North Dakota to join Trump election lawsuit

Late North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem

BISMARCK, N.D.  – Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says there will be no cost for North Dakota to join a lawsuit that seeks to overturn the outcome of the presidential election.

North Dakota and 16 other states won by President Donald Trump in November joined Texas in urging the court to take on the lawsuit that challenges election results in four battleground states won by President-elect Joe Biden.

Stenehjem said “it’s normal” for a state to not be charged for signing on to what’s called an “amicus brief.”

Stenehjem said the case should be settled by the U.S. Supreme Court.
