[UPDATE: AG appeals decision] – Pennsylvania judge halts further action on certification of election results, grants hearing on mail-in ballots

It’s being reported now that a Pennsylvania judge has blocked the state from certifying the 2020 election results:

Jenny Ellis announced it, but her headline is a bit different, saying the Pennsylvania Court has granted a hearing on mail-in ballots:

But she does note the blocking of any further action on certification:

Be careful to note exactly what the judge says here regarding the certification:

As to the Supplemental Emergency Application, to the extent that there remains any further action to perfect the certification of the results of the 2020 General Election for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States of America, Respondents are preliminarily enjoined from doing so, pending an evidentiary hearing to be held on Friday, November 27, 2020 at 11:30 am via WebEx.

It’s important to point out that the election results were certified yesterday and signed by the governor:

I don’t know if there remains any further action to perfect the certification or not. It might be a moot ruling at this point if everything was completed already. But if not, then the judge’s ruling should halt whatever remains.

UPDATE: Apparently this ruling stopped something, because the state’s leftist AG just appealed the decision:

That appeal has been filed, according to a press release: “Respondents did file a notice of appeal, seeking to have the Pennsylvania Supreme Court review and overturn the Commonwealth Court’s injunction. The Petitioners have until Friday, November 27, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. to respond to the Respondents’ notice of appeal.”

I’m sure the activist judges will give Josh Shapiro the injunction he wants and they’ll go ahead and cerity. What is Josh Shapiro so afraid of?
