The case to keep Trump off the Virginia ballot was dismissed

  • Trump is ineligible to hold any federal office in the future due to the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution.
  • Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment disqualified Trump from the Colorado primary ballot.
  • Trump and the Colorado Republican Party want to immediately request an expedited ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court.

John Anthony Castro, a write-in candidate for president from Texas, filed a lawsuit against U.S. District Judge Irene C. Berger, asking for a federal court injunction preventing Trump from being included on the West Virginia Republican primary ballot in 2024.

The lawsuit was dismissed by the judge. Castro said that 4eeTrump is ineligible to hold any federal office in the future due to the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution.Attorney General Patrick Morrisey declared that the action had no legal or factual foundation and was frivolous and without merit.

To prevent Trump from being able to cast a ballot, Castro has launched two dozen cases in other states, including the one he filed in September. He said that having Trump on West Virginia’s ballot the following year would hinder Castro’s ability to gather money and run for office, even though Castro has not yet registered any contributions to the Federal Election Commission.

Berger believed Castro’s complaint to be fraudulent because there was no indication that Castro was actively running for president in West Virginia or even having a presence there.

Berger referenced statements made by Castro in a related lawsuit in New Hampshire, where he acknowledged that his only involvement in the campaign was bringing legal action to keep Trump off the ballot in several states.

Berger added that Castro had not been able to demonstrate how Trump’s inclusion on the ballot would hurt his write-in candidacy for president.

Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment disqualified Trump from the Colorado primary ballot, according to the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision, which is in contrast to Berger’s decision.

Trump and the Colorado Republican Party want to immediately request an expedited ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court by appealing the Colorado Supreme Court’s finding there. Until an appeal is heard, the decision has been stayed.
