U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin on Tuesday filed an emergency motion to ask the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston not to certify a winner in the 2nd District Race, where he lost to Rep.-elect Jared Golden in a ranked-choice runoff.

On Wednesday, Golden’s attorneys called Poliquin’s motion a “Hail Mary pass.” In addition to rejecting the motion for an injunction, the congressman-elect asked the 1st Circuit to affirm U.S. District Judge Lance Walker’s decision in Bangor. Read the full documents below.
