The anticipation is palpable as the Supreme Court prepares to deliver a ruling in the case that could determine whether former President Donald Trump will feature on the ballot for the upcoming election.

Colorado's Bold Move

In a bold and unprecedented move, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that Trump's actions disqualify him from seeking the presidency again and removed him from the state's primary ballot. This decision has sparked nationwide interest and debate surrounding Trump's eligibility.

Countdown to Clarity

With Super Tuesday just around the corner, the impending resolution of this case on Monday will provide clarity on the fate of Trump's candidacy. Following an expedited hearing on February 8, both sides eagerly await the judgment that will potentially impact the outcome of the primaries.

Historic Precedent in Question

The Colorado court's decision invoked Section 3 of the 14th Amendment - a post-Civil War provision designed to prevent individuals involved in insurrection from holding public office. This marks a historic juncture as the Supreme Court prepares to rule on this critical constitutional provision.

An Unprecedented Turn

Trump's exclusion from primary ballots in multiple states, including Illinois and Maine, underscores the significance of this legal battle. The Supreme Court's customary secrecy regarding upcoming decisions has intensified speculation surrounding the imminent ruling, further adding to the gravity of the situation.

The nation watches with bated breath as one of the most hotly-debated legal conflicts of our time approaches its climax.

Supreme Court Decision Day Delayed

End of Term Nears Without Scheduled Bench Day

When nearing the end of the term in late June, the Supreme Court typically issues decisions on days when the justices are slated to take the bench. However, the next scheduled court day isn't until March 15. Due to the absence of a bench day and the current pandemic-driven closure of the courtroom, justices will not be presenting their opinions in person. Instead, any decisions will be posted on the court's website right after 10 a.m. Eastern on Monday.

Last week, the Supreme Court agreed to hear arguments in late April regarding whether former President Trump can face criminal prosecution for election interference charges, specifically his involvement in the January 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol. With political implications weighing heavily, the lack of precedent complicates the outcome and raises questions about a potential trial before the upcoming November election.

Trump is currently facing a total of 91 criminal charges across four separate prosecutions. Of these charges, the only trial set to move forward is his state case in New York. This case involves allegations of falsifying business records in relation to hush money payments made to a porn actor. The trial date is scheduled for March 25, with the judge signaling a steadfast commitment to proceed with the legal proceedings.
