The Supreme Court is set to release one or more opinions on Monday, a day ahead of the Super Tuesday primaries. The announcement is expected to address a dispute regarding states’ authority to remove former President Donald Trump from the ballot under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

In a departure from the traditional public sitting, the court will not take the bench to announce the decisions, which will be released electronically.

The case at the center of the dispute is Trump vs. Anderson, stemming from Trump’s appeal of a Colorado State Supreme Court decision that sought to ban him from the 2024 ballot due to his efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.

During oral arguments, a majority of the justices appeared skeptical of the notion that a state could bar a candidate from the ballot as an “insurrectionist.”

A ruling in this case could have significant implications, providing clarity on the court’s interpretation of a 150-year-old constitutional provision and its application to Trump nationwide.

The timing of the decision, coming just before Colorado’s primary elections, adds to its significance, as it could impact whether votes for Trump are counted in the state.

The ruling will be closely watched as it addresses fundamental questions about states’ powers in regulating federal elections and the consequences of actions deemed to be insurrectionist.
