As the subject is in the air, it occurs to me to ask how long a US president would serve if he came to office by reversing in a court the result of an election some way into the term of his opponent ?

My impression is that the election has to happen at fixed intervals, and if so that means that the "court-imposed" president would only have a short period in office before the next election has to happen.

Is there any law, precedent or convention on this ?
