LANSING, Mich. — A lawsuit against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer intended to invalidate election results in Wayne, Ingham and Washtenaw counties based on alleged voting irregularities and fraud has been dismissed.

The plaintiffs in the case of "Bally, et al v Whitmer, et al" provided notice today of their voluntarily dismissing their complaint, according to the office of Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel today.

The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan. The case was recently assigned to Judge Janet Neff.

“This case was clearly designed to spread misinformation about the security and integrity of Michigan elections,” Nessel said.

“Our elections have been conducted fairly and transparently, and the results reflect the will of Michigan’s voters. Any claims to the contrary are wholly without merit.”
