Grand Junction’s NBC affiliate reports:
A district court judge has thrown out Tina Peters’ attempt to sue every other county clerk and recorder in the state, citing the fact that Peters did not take necessary action to stop the recount before the results were certified.
Documents state that Peters lost the option to order a recount after votes were certified, as Colorado law dictates specific procedures for challenging a recount. Such procedures are time-sensitive, and Peters simply did not act quickly enough, according to the court order.
Peters suit has been dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction and the preliminary injunction hearing set for September 7 has been cancelled.

Peters is facing multiple felony counts of election fraud.
Last month she lost a crowdfunded recount of her bid for secretary of state, which she lost by over 20 points.
