A Wyoming judge has dismissed a complaint that sought to prohibit Donald Trump from the ballot.
Retired attorney Tim Newcomb brought the case.
The complaint argued that Trump did not uphold the “Constitution’s transfer of presidential power under Article II. Section I.”
“I am extremely pleased with Judge Westby’s decision to dismiss Mr. Newcomb’s outrageously wrong and repugnant lawsuit to remove Donald Trump and Cynthia Lummis from the ballot in Wyoming,” said Wyoming Secretary of State Chuck Gray (R).
“I have been working to make sure that Donald Trump will be able to be on the ballot, and I am happy our motion to dismiss this lawsuit was granted. I will continue to fight against this nationwide effort in order to protect the integrity of our elections and ensure that the people of Wyoming can choose who to elect for themselves.”
Newcomb also urged Gray to resign for “his attempt at stochastic terror against Wyoming’s Judiciary, then apologize to the Court and its staff personnel,” Fox News reported.
The Supreme Court of the United States announced that it will hear Donald Trump’s appeal of the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to ban him from the GOP Primary ballot.
Oral arguments will be had on February 8.
“The petition for a writ of certiorari is granted,” SCOTUS wrote. “The case is set for oral argument on Thursday, February 8, 2024.”
Trump lawyers recently wrote to the Supreme Court, stating, “This Court should grant certiorari to consider this question of paramount importance, summarily reverse the Colorado Supreme Court’s ruling, and return the right to vote for their candidate of choice to the voters.”
“The question of eligibility to serve as President of the United States is properly reserved for Congress, not the state courts, to consider and decide,” the appeal reads. “By considering the question of President Trump’s eligibility and barring him from the ballot, the Colorado Supreme Court arrogated Congress’ authority.”
