Former President Donald Trump is taking legal action to appeal a recent ruling in Colorado, where a judge dismissed a lawsuit seeking to prevent him from appearing on the state's ballot. The lawsuit, initially centered around Trump's alleged role in inciting the 2021 Capitol riot, has generated controversy over the interpretation of the 14th Amendment and its applicability to presidential candidates.
In the original ruling, a Colorado judge determined that Trump had engaged in insurrection by inciting the Capitol riot. However, the judge ultimately dismissed the lawsuit, stating that the 14th Amendment's disqualification clause did not apply. . .
