Federal judge throws out lawsuit, ending Alaska Senate fight
By Emily Goodin - 12/28/10 06:38 PM ET

A federal judge has tossed out Joe Miller's lawsuit challenging Sen. Lisa Murkowski's write in victory in last month's Senate race, clearing the way for Murkowski to be sworn in with the rest of the 112th Congress on Jan. 5.

The federal lawsuit was Miller's last legal option after the Alaska Supreme Court ruled against him.

U.S. District Judge Ralph Beistline said in a 14-page order that Miller wasn't raising any federal issues in his lawsuit that needed to be resolved. He also wrote that he would not second guess the state's Supreme Court, according to a report in the Anchorage Daily News.

Beistline also lifted his block on the election's certification.

Blue shirt, yellow tie, black jacket. He should have let his mother dress him because he doesn't know how to match his clothes yet.
