US Supreme Court and the Trump ballot ban appeal: what's at stake

Posted by: The Conversation

Date: Monday, 08 January 2024

The US Supreme Court will begin hearing arguments this week on whether Colorado can ban Donald Trump from the presidential ballot. The court in Colorado ruled last month that he was not fit to be president under the 14th amendment to the US Constitution, which bans individuals who have engaged in insurrection or rebellion from holding office.

Late on Friday the Supreme Court confirmed that it would hear the case, setting the scene for a potentially landmark legal decision that will have implications for the 2024 US election. Notre Dame election law scholar Derek T. Muller explains what’s at stake, and why the case is considered to be so momentous.
