6. They pulled them without prejudice so that they can refile, probably Friday

to then request an emergency injunction to stop certification, which is Friday and Monday for most states.

They're basically going to refile these and then demand that a court block legal certification of the vote until the cases are adjudicated. If the courts refuse, they'll take that to the next court up.

They pulled today because the judges will take one look at these cases and throw them out, so they won't be able to delay the certification. It's a desperate tactic because the voluntary pulling of these cases means that they are not going to meet a timeliness criterion for a stay of certification (i.e., you had the opportunity to file these Monday, and in fact they were filed), so they might refile the same cases from different plaintiffs (the Trump campaign rather than these assortment of random voters supported by third party GOP flack organizations). The whole thing is childish (it's the legal equivalent of "I'm not touching you" ), and deeply unlikely to succeed, and even some conservative judges might view these shenanigans as contempt or sanctionable filings.
