On December 8, 2020, Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP filed a brief at the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Governor Wolf, and Secretary Boockvar in Kelly v. Commonwealth—a lawsuit brought by a group of Republican lawmakers and voters seeking decertification of the presidential election results in Pennsylvania. The brief filed by Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP (along with other private counsel and attorneys at the Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General) argued that the Supreme Court should deny the plaintiffs' request for an emergency injunction. On the evening of December 8, 2020, the Supreme Court issued an order denying the plaintiffs' application without any noted dissent.

Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP lawyers Joshua Matz, Raymond Tolentino, and Harmann Singh contributed to the brief.
