Biden win over Trump in Nevada made official by court

MGN - Biden

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The Nevada Supreme Court has made Joe Biden's win in the state official, approving the final canvass of the Nov. 3 election.

The unanimous action Tuesday by the seven nonpartisan justices sends to Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak results that will deliver six electoral votes from the western U.S. battleground state to Biden.

The court action drew extra scrutiny amid legal efforts by the state GOP and Trump campaign to prevent sending vote-by-mail ballots to all 1.82 million active registered voters and then to stop the counting of the 1.4 million votes that were cast.

Certification of the vote does not stop several lawsuits pending in state and federal courts.
