This lawsuit is literally premised on the theory that a statute that virtually every Republican state legislator voted for last year is unconstitutional, although oddly nobody noticed until Joe Biden won the state’s electoral votes:

Gregory H. Teufel and Brandon M. Shields should be disbarred.
The point of these suits is not to win them, but to create enough of an illusion of an ongoing dispute to give cover to the Emily Murphys of the world. And since this will get a lot of people killed, that’s plenty bad enough!
