PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Supreme Court has upheld a lower court decision dismissing the last in a series of challenges that sought to decerify Democrat Joe Biden's victory in the state.

The high court ruling is the second time the all-Republican court has turned aside an appeal of a court loss by backers of President Donald Trump seeking to overturn the results of the election.

In all, eight lawsuits challenging Biden's Arizona win have failed.

Tuesday's ruling from a four-judge panel of the high court agreed with a trial court judge in Pinal County that plaintiff Staci Burk lacked the right to contest the election.
