Landmark’s Statement on Colorado Supreme Court’s Decision to Disqualify Donald Trump from Appearing on Ballot

Landmark's statement on CO Supreme Court's decision to disqualify Donald Trump from appearing on ballot.

Colorado Supreme Court concludes that Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment disqualifies Donald Trump from serving as President

In a narrow 4-3 decision, the Colorado Supreme Court decided to effectively disenfranchise the millions of voters in the state who intend to vote for Donald Trump as the state’s Republican nominee.  This decision weaponizes Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment and will invite untold numbers of challenges.  Now, at least in Colorado, private parties bringing private actions in state courts can sue to have their political opponents declared ineligible to serve in federal office (including the office of the President) simply for speaking.
Importantly, the Colorado Supreme Court stayed their decision pending appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.  The issue of whether Donald Trump engaged in insurrection and is therefore ineligible will now come before the highest court who will tackle this issue in the coming weeks.
