A Holiday Guide to Donald Trump’s Latest Cases at the U.S. Supreme Court

Michael C. Dorf, the Robert S. Stevens professor of Law at Cornell University, is a regular contributor to Verdict, a service of Justia which provides substantive analysis by legal professionals on a variety of law and law related issues. In his December 22,2023 posting, to this service,  A Holiday Guide to Donald Trump’s Latest Cases at the Supreme court,  “he points out that the U.S. Supreme Court faces critical decisions in two cases involving former President Donald Trump: one regarding his claim of absolute immunity against charges for his role in attempting to overturn the 2020 election, and the other concerning his eligibility for the Presidency under Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment. Professor Dorf argues that despite Trump’s legal team arguing for more time due to the complexity of the immunity case, the Court should expedite its review in both cases, given the urgency of presidential primaries and the weak nature of Trump’s claims, especially against the well-founded argument that he is ineligible under the Fourteenth Amendment due to insurrectionist activities”.
