Now that a federal court has decided not to overrule a Michigan Court of Appeals decision which effectively puts the statewide recount on pause, Jill Stein is now fighting back in multiple ways. For instance the Associated Press is reporting that she’s planning to file in Michigan Supreme Court to get the recount to resume. Meanwhile, with the recount on pause, she and her recount observers are staging a protest outside that court building on Thursday.
Jill Stein sent the following information to her observers and supporters on Wednesday night, a copy of which was provided to us by an individual on the mailing list:
After the federal court case decision, the recount will not continue. Do NOT attend your shifts tomorrow at recount sites; all recount sites are done recounting because of the court’s decision to end the recount.
Join our Emergency Rally and Speak Out in Lansing Tomorrow.
Join us to protest the unfair decision to shut down the Michigan Recount.
Join the grassroots call for the Michigan State Supreme Court to allow the recount to continue and call for election reform in Michigan.
The rally and speak out will be held at 2pm, Thursday, December 8, 2016.
The location is in the Plaza in front of the Michigan State Supreme Court, 925 W Ottawa St, Lansing, MI 48915.

In other words, despite this latest legal roadblock thrown at her in Michigan, and the various headlines claiming that the recount is “dead,” it appears Jill Stein is simply moving on to the next phase of her legal strategy and public relations strategy in the state. We’ll do our best to pass along the developments at Thursday’s protest rally as the event unfolds.
