WASHINGTON — Pennsylvania accused the State of Texas of sedition in its filing Thursday at the U.S. Supreme Court. The Keystone State was responding to a Texas lawsuit, which seeks to block four states’ presidential electors from casting ballots.

In the brief, Pennsylvania said that Texas was guilty of “seditious abuse of the judicial process.”

Sedition is defined in federal criminal law as an attempt to overthrow the United States government.
