Supreme Court Gives Trump Victory In Case Of…

The U.S. Supreme Court has handed former President Donald Trump’s campaign a victory on Monday as the effort to remove him from the ballot in several states ahead of the 2024 election continues via Conservative Brief.



“The Court rejected a writ of certiorari petition from John Castro, a registered Republican candidate for president in 2024, who sought to have Trump removed from the ballot in Arizona,” Newsweek reported.

Castro, John A. V. Fontes, AZ Sec. Of State, et al. The petition for a writ of certiorari before judgment is denied,” the high court said in its ruling, which rejected a review of an earlier decision to allow Trump on the ballot in the state.

It is noted that Castro had filed lawsuits in several states in order to remove Trump from ballots over alleged connection to the January 6 riots and efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

In December, U.S. District Judge Douglas L. Rayes had rejected Castro’s filing, which prompted him to take it to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The judge stated in his ruling that Castro’s argument “lacks standing to bring his claim,” as reported by NBC News. Castro argued that Trump should be disqualified from the ballot in Arizona for allegedly offering support to “insurrectionists” on January 6, 2021.

The judge also said that his arguments “do not show that Castro is truly competing with Trump.”

It was in March that the high court delivered its long-awaited ruling on the case involving the Colorado Supreme Court banning him from that state’s 2024 ballot, overturning that ruling to allow Trump to appear.
