(ACLJ)—The ACLJ just delivered a huge victory as a Colorado court threw out a 14th Amendment case against President Trump – a win for voters in the 2024 election. We proudly represented the Colorado Republican Party in this case and are pleased that Colorado citizens’ First Amendment right to vote for the candidate of choice was upheld.
Fox News reports:
“Former President Donald Trump’s name will remain on the Colorado 2024 presidential primary ballot, a judge ruled Friday.
‘The court orders the Secretary of State to place Donald J. Trump on the presidential primary ballot when it certifies the ballot on January 5, 2024,’ U.S. District Court Judge Sarah B. Wallace wrote in her ruling.”
This was our toughest case in our ongoing legal battle to stop states from “disqualifying” President Trump from the states’ primary ballots. Yet we managed to ensure the Constitution was upheld.
The judge rightly ruled the 14th Amendment doesn’t apply to the President of the United States, but still went on in a superfluous finding to state that she believed the President was guilty of insurrection. I don’t like that the judge had to write a 102-page screed that showed her bias against the former President – explaining why she thinks Trump is bad but still belongs on the Colorado primary ballot.
Keep in mind that the President has never been formally convicted – let alone even charged – with insurrection. And why? Because there’s zero evidence that President Trump tried to start an insurrection. So in the end, the judge reached the right legal conclusion, but she went the wrong way to arrive there.
