Trump Asks U.S. Supreme Court to Overturn Colorado Decision to Remove Him From 2024 Ballot | 3 Jan 2024 | The Colorado Supreme Court last month disqualified Trump from the 2024 ballot. All seven Colorado Supreme Court justices were appointed by Democrats -- three of the justices dissented to the ruling. The legal theories are based on Section 3 of the US Constitution's 14th Amendment which states public officials who have "engaged in insurrection or rebellion against" the US may be disqualified from public office. Trump has not been charged with engaging in insurrection or rebellion against the United States. The state's high court stayed their ruling and left room for an appeal. The ruling was set to go into effect on January 4, 2024; however, Trump will remain on the ballot pending appeal.
