(WXYZ) — The Michigan Supreme Court on Monday denied a lawsuit challenging Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson's authority to mail out absentee ballot applications to voters who did not request them.

"We are not persuaded that the questions presented should be reviewed by this Court," the Supreme Court's order stated. The court also declared the motion "moot."

On order of the Court, the motions for immediate consideration and for leave to file brief amicus curiae are GRANTED. The application for leave to appeal the September 16, 2020 judgment of the Court of Appeals is considered, and it is DENIED, because we are not persuaded that the questions presented should be reviewed by this Court. The motion to intervene is DENIED as moot.
