A federal judge in Detroit has dissolved the temporary restraining order that launched the Michigan Presidential election recount.

This follows a move by the Michigan Board of Canvassers, which voted 3-1 to halt the recount, if the restraining order was lifted.

This means the recount must now stop.

Representatives for Jill Stein now say they will not be filing an appeal, citing in an email to 7 Action News that they have "no chance of winning."
