Court Rejects Franken's Motion To Toss Coleman's Election Lawsuit

Coleman's team is already celebrating with this statement saying among other things: "Tonight's decision from the court is a stinging defeat for Al Franken. It underscores that the Coleman contest will proceed, that there will be a trial, and that every valid vote will be counted and counted only once."

The Franken camp has this response to the ruling: "We have reviewed the court's orders, we look forward to the trial commencing on Monday, and moving forward expeditiously so that Minnesotans can have two Senators representing them as quickly as possible. We continue to believe the hard work done by hundreds of election officials throughout the state and the bipartisan State Canvassing Board was done carefully and accurately and produced a result will ultimately be upheld by the court."
