A federal judge in Michigan on Wednesday revoked his order requiring a recount of the state's presidential vote sought by Jill Stein, siding with a state appeals court that found the Green Party candidate had no grounds to mount the challenge.

US District Judge Mark Goldsmith's ruling has the effect of halting the recount in Michigan, at least for now, following conflicting rulings a day earlier by federal and state appeals courts.

The Michigan Court of Appeals on Tuesday ordered the recount be halted, while the US 6th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Goldsmith's earlier decision and said the process should proceed. The conflicting rulings had both sides claiming victory but left the future of Stein's bid unclear.
