PHOENIX — A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit that sought to decertify Democrat President-elect Joe Biden’s win over Republican President Donald Trump in Arizona. 

Judge Diane Humetewa said the lawsuit’s allegations “are sorely wanting of relevant or reliable evidence” and that granting the relief it sought would disenfranchise millions of voters. 

The challenge alleged the state’s election systems have security flaws that let election workers and foreign countries manipulate results.

Attorneys for the election officials have said the lawsuit uses conspiracy theories to make wild allegations against one of Maricopa County’s vendors for voting equipment without providing proof on its claims of widespread Arizona election fraud.
