Stein's lawyer, Lawrence Otter of Bucks County, filed a lawsuit in Harrisburg's Commonwealth Court asking for a full recount of every Pennsylvania county. U.S. District Judge James Peterson rejected the motion based on the argument that no harm is seen in allowing the recount to carry on while the filed lawsuit is being processed. That court had scheduled a 10 a.m. hearing in the case that's now canceled.
Supporters of President-elect Donald Trump have filed a federal lawsuit in an effort to stop Wisconsin's ongoing presidential election recount. Now supporters of President-elect Donald Trump are suing to block the vote audits in all three of those states won by the Republican candidate.
An updated count Friday by Pennsylvania election officials showed Trump's lead over Clinton in that state had shrunk to 49,000 from 71,000, as more counties wrap up final tallies.
The Green Party has said its requests for recounts in those states are focused on ensuring the integrity of the USA voting system and not on changing the result of the election.
In the popular vote, Clinton had a margin of more than 2.5 million votes over Trump, the Cook Political Report said. That is still shy of Pennsylvania's 0.5 percent trigger for an automatic statewide recount. And any recount would change few votes, Cortes predicted. His objections suspended the planned Friday start of the recount until next week. Stein drew less than 1% of the votes cast.
Stein has claimed that voting machines used in some parts of Wisconsin and other states are vulnerable to hacking and could have been manipulated. Clinton lost to Trump in Wisconsin by about 22,000 votes, or less than 1 percentage point.

The Green Party has sought recounts of the results from the November 8 election in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, in addition to MI.
Instead, the campaign plans to push for the statewide recount in federal court on Monday, demanding a recount on constitutional grounds. A Schuette spokeswoman said on Friday that Stein had contributed $787,500 but that it would cost some $5 million. Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein requested the recount which began on Thursday and has to be completed by December 13.
The recount campaign, led by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, cited financial difficulties when deciding to withdraw the case.
In their filing to MI election board, Trump's lawyers argued that Stein, a "bottom-dwelling candidate" who finished so far behind Trump and Clinton that she couldn't have won, even if some votes were miscounted, shouldn't be allowed to force an expensive and time-consuming recount.
In a statement, Schuette said a recount "threatens to silence all MI votes for president".
