Supreme Court Teases Monday Morning Showdown Over Trump's 14th Amendment Suit

In an unexpected move, the Supreme Court hinted that it might issue at least one opinion on Monday morning. This suggests the justices may provide a ruling on former President Trump's 14th Amendment lawsuit, which disqualified him from the Colorado presidential race.

The justices of the top court might issue opinions in any of the several dozen cases that are now sitting on its docket, since they are not required to disclose in advance which rulings they will release on any given day.

The fact that Sunday's update arrived over the weekend and was unusual in a number of other ways, however, has fueled mounting rumors that Trump's historic ballot ban lawsuit may soon come to a conclusion.

In contrast to the normal prior notice of several days, the court gave less than twenty-four hours' notice of Monday's opinion publication.

Monday is also Super Tuesday, the day before Colorado primary voters and those in over a dozen other states cast their votes. As Trump gets closer to securing the Republican nomination, hundreds of delegates are up for grabs.

Since the epidemic and the justices' return to in-person operations, they have also customarily taken the bench to read aloud summaries of the majority judgments to the court's live audience.

But according to the update on the court's website, Monday's anticipated opinion announcement—which occurs at the conclusion of the justices' most recent session—will not take place in front of the court.

In an appeal of a ruling that disqualified him on Colorado's primary ballot due to the 14th Amendment's ban on insurrection, Trump presented oral arguments before the Supreme Court last month. It seems that the justices were hesitant to make the unprecedented move of excluding Trump from the ballot.

Numerous legal proceedings are being taken nationwide to stop Trump from running for president again due to his behavior during the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021.

Though Trump's case is being handled on an expedited basis, the justices typically reveal their strongest judgments of each term in May and June.
