Michigan Judge Dismisses Attempt to Block Trump from 2024 State Ballot

In a significant legal development, a Michigan judge on Tuesday dismissed a challenge aimed at preventing former President Donald Trump from appearing on the state’s ballot for the 2024 presidential election.

This ruling came as a response to a lawsuit filed by a group of Michigan voters in September, NBC News reported.

Critics argued that Trump’s actions in trying to overturn the 2020 election results and his role in the events of January 6, 2021, violated the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, allegedly disqualifying him from holding office.

“The Fourteenth Amendment arguments of plaintiffs present a political question that is nonjusticiable at the present time,” Judge James Robert Redford noted in his ruling.
