Three people in Wisconsin who filed a federal lawsuit alleging widespread fraud in absentee voting have dropped the lawsuit.

A court filing Monday didn't give a reason. Attorney James Bopp said he could not say why the lawsuit was dropped because of attorney-client privilege.

The lawsuit had sought to exclude election ballots in Milwaukee, Dane and Menominee counties. All three went strongly for President-elect Joe Biden, who defeated Trump by about 20,500 votes in the state.

Three voters in northeastern Wisconsin have filed a federal lawsuit seeking to exclude Nov. 3 election ballots in Milwaukee, Dane and Menominee counties which helped deliver the state to President-elect Joe Biden.

The plaintiffs allege without evidence that absentee voting is rife with widespread fraud and that votes in those counties should not be included in the state's final election certification, which would give Wisconsin to President Donald Trump.
