LANSING – The plaintiffs in Bally, et al v Whitmer, et al – which sought to invalidate election results in Wayne, Ingham and Washtenaw counties based on allegations of voting irregularities and fraud – are voluntarily dismissing their complaint. The plaintiffs filed with the United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan today providing notice of the voluntary dismissal before service of process on the defendants, or the filing of an answer or motion for summary judgment. The case had recently been assigned to the Honorable Janet Neff.

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