When the suit was filed, the plaintiffs argued that there was evidence of enough illegal mail-in ballots counted in the three counties to invalidate the election results.The case was one of several filed by allies of President Donald Trump and Trump’s own campaign as part of an effort to reverse Biden’s projected win in the national race for the White House.Those efforts have largely failed to gain traction and it is not clear that Trump has any chance of overturning his loss through legal actions. But that has not stopped the president both from claiming otherwise and from falsely claiming that he won the election.- Advertisement – The Wisconsin suit was filed just last Thursday in U.S. District Court in Green Bay. The named defendants included the clerks of the three counties, Wisconsin’s elections director and Elections Commission chair, Gov. Tony Evers, and other officials.The plaintiffs had argued that votes in the counties of Milwaukee, Dane and Menominee should be tossed out because “the sudden flood” of mail-in ballots had left election workers unable to carefully review those ballots for fraudulent ones.James Bopp, a lawyer for the plaintiffs, when asked why the case was dismissed, told CNBC in an email, that because of attorney-client privilege “and because I do not telegraph my next moves, I cannot comment.”Lawyers for defendants in the case did not immediately respond to requests for comment.The law firm Law Forward, which was founded to challenge challenge conservative election and voting-related legal efforts, said the dismissal was “an exercise in efficiency.”“This case was entirely without merit and the plaintiffs saved the court the trouble of saying so,” said Jeff Mandell, president of Law Forward, in a statement.Biden, the Democratic former vice president, narrowly defeated the Republican Trump in Wisconsin, which has 10 Electoral College votes.Biden received 1.63 million votes to 1.61 million votes for Trump, a margin of 49.5% to 48.8%.Trump has said he wants a recount of the votes in Wisconsin.Milwaukee County went heavily for Biden, giving him more than 69% percent of the ballots cast. The actual vote margin in that county was more than 180,000 ballots for Biden.Biden also far exceeded Trump in Dane County, which Biden won by 75.5% of the ballotsIn Menominee County, which had relatively few voters, Biden crushed Trump with 1,303 votes to just 278 votes for the incumbent.Even if Trump could somehow reverse the official vote results in Wisconsin, it would not be enough, on its own, to undo Biden’s projected victory in the Electoral College.With all 50 states results projected as of last Friday, Biden has 306 Electoral College votes, compared to just 232 votes for Trump. – Advertisement – – Advertisement – Three plaintiffs whose federal lawsuit sought to invalidate all of the ballots in three Wisconsin counties that gave President-elect Joe Biden well more than his approximately 20,000 vote margin of victory in that state told a judge Monday that they were dismissing their case.The court filing by lawyers for plaintiffs, Michael Langenhorst, Michael LeMay and Stephen Fifrick, did not say they were voluntarily dismissing their claim in the case, which was backed by the conservative election group True the Vote. The notice of dismissal filed Monday said the claim was being dropped “without prejudice against” the defendants, which means the plaintiffs reserved their right to make the claims again.- Advertisement – Democratic U.S. presidential nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden speaks during a campaign speech at the Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, U.S., September 21, 2020.Mark Makela | Reuters

In addition to the patients she serves in her office and at Margaret Mary Health, Dr. Robertson serves as the director of nursing for the Sisters of St. Francis where she regularly provides care to sisters who are too ill to travel. “As a testament to her ability to relate to her patients, Dr. Robertson is the most requested physician for the sisters when they are in need of care,” said Diana Schutte, director of nursing for the Sisters of St. Francis. “She’s just wonderful. She looks at the individuality of each patient and addresses them in a way they can understand, especially when caring for patients with dementia.” Batesville, In. — Dr. Mary Robertson recently received the Indiana Doc Hollywood Award at the 2017 Indiana Rural Health Association’s annual conference. This award recognizes individuals who care professionally for those in rural areas across the nation. An internal medicine physician in Batesville, Dr. Robertson was one of four physicians in the state of Indiana who received the honor.Dr. Robertson’s nomination was a compilation of both professional and patient testimonials that showcased her reputation for being a genuinely caring physician. Not only was she recognized for providing excellent care to her patients, but the award was also given for her role in mentoring students and volunteering in the community.Dr. Robertson moved from Chicago to Batesville in 2000 to open her medical practice. Since that time, she has provided compassionate care to a number of patients not only in her office, but at Margaret Mary Health. When asked to describe Dr. Robertson, many of her patients are quick to point out how meticulous she is when making a diagnosis or determining a treatment plan. “Mary leaves no stone unturned – continually delving into medical issues until she is totally convinced the course she is recommending is concise and thorough,” said Judy Laudick, a patient since 2000. Despite the time and dedication it takes to be a mentor to students, Dr. Robertson has welcomed them into her practice so they can work alongside her to better understand what it takes to be a healthcare provider in a rural community.“Mary is a large part of the reason I am a practicing dentist today, emulating what she has done for so many years,” said Amy Feller-Morrin. “On many occasions, I watched Mary balance the life of a full-time professional working mother in a small community. Mary has always been a role model to me.”Anyone who knows Dr. Robertson knows she not only cares about her patients, but she cares about the entire community. Not only does Dr. Robertson support many sporting events and fundraisers in the community, she has volunteered her time on many occasions to speak at community seminars on topics ranging from cancer and heart disease to diabetes and women’s health. She has also assisted with sports physicals for student athletes.An advocate for those who are underinsured, Dr. Robertson devotes countless hours to helping patients get the treatment and medications they need, regardless of their ability to pay. She also volunteers regularly at the Southeast Indiana Health Center (SEIHC), a local clinic that provides medical care to those who can’t afford it.“Since opening our doors in 2013, Dr. Robertson has been a true supporter of the Southeast Indiana Health Center,” said Paul Tyrer, SEIHC manager. “From personally transporting a patient to the emergency room to seeing patients outside of clinic hours, Dr. Robertson’s care and compassion goes beyond caring for the sick.”Perhaps most impressive of all of Dr. Robertson’s feats is her ability to run a successful medical practice while raising a family of her own. Dr. Robertson and her husband, Mike, have three children and seven grandchildren. She is a very active grandma, and her grandkids affectionately call her “Lola.” With six siblings of her own, she also values being involved with her very large, extended family.

Simple as that.”I get the same excuse every time. Just because I’m stronger than everybody I don’t get those calls. I have no respect for them. They do their job, I do my job. I have nothing to say about them, or nothing nice to say towards them.” Related News Wall began to notice the officials weren’t calling fouls in his favor, which led to him initiating contact with 76ers guard T.J.
