UC Irvine Law professor and elections expert Rick Hasen was not surprised by the ruling.
"Pro-tip: Don't make a motion as a new substitute attorney the night before a scheduled emergency time sensitive election ... hearing to postpone that hearing, as the Trump lawyers just did in PA. It will be denied," Hasen tweeted.
"The new lawyer being subbed in the night before this key hearing in the Pennsylvania election case is not an election lawyer and has been a lawyer on this case for just a couple of hours," he continued. "Like bringing in a minor leaguer to play in a World Series game with no notice or warm-up."
