Nebraska didn't join Texas election lawsuit


Dear editor:

I am writing as a point of needed clarification. Over the preceding months, there have been repeated stories and letters to editors with incorrect understanding. Nebraska did not join the Texas election lawsuit last December. Nebraska joined an amicus brief highlighting important separation-of-powers issues under Article II of the U.S. Constitution for the Court to consider. The Supreme Court voted 7-2 in choosing not to hear the matter, and the issue is closed.
