Nevada judge rejects case to remove Trump from state ballot
01/12/2024 // Arsenio Toledo // Views

A federal judge in Nevada has rejected a 14th Amendment case against former President Donald Trump trying to remove him from the state's 2024 presidential ballot.

Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Nevada Gloria Navarro, appointed by former President Barack Obama, determined that the man who brought the challenge – longshot Republican presidential candidate John Anthony Castro – does not have authentic standing to bring the suit, because he filed to run for president only to manufacture legal standing. (Related: Biden administration DIRECTLY LINKED to Colorado banning Trump from the ballot.)

"In rejecting his political competitor standing argument, courts found that Castro improperly manufactured his standing merely to file this lawsuit," wrote Navarro, who cited an October 2023 article from the Associated Press noting that Castro himself admitted he had no intention to seriously pursue a presidential campaign.

"I'm not going to lie and pretend my candidacy is anything more than trying to enforce the United States Constitution, and that's what I'm here to do," Castro said at the time. "I don't want to distract anything from the mission. The fight's going to be in the courtroom."

Castro has already filed 14th Amendment cases against Trump in multiple states. Five of those states, including Florida and New Hampshire, have already rejected Castro's main political competitor standing argument.

Navarro did not rule on the merits of the challenge. She instead noted that because Castro's case against Trump has no merit, "the Court therefore lacks jurisdiction to hear this case."

"To have standing to sue in federal court, a plaintiff must have suffered a concrete, particularized and actual or imminent injury in fact that was caused by the defendant's challenged conduct and is redressable by a favorable action," explained Navarro. "This limitation on the judicial power prevents a plaintiff from invoking Article III jurisdiction of federal court by asserting what is merely a 'general interest common to all members of the public.'"

So far, 14th Amendment cases against Trump have only succeeded in Colorado and Maine. The Supreme Court is expected to take up Trump's challenge to the former's ruling, and the court is expected to begin hearing arguments in February.

Steven Cheung, spokesperson for Trump's presidential campaign, lauded Nevada's dismissal of the lawsuit against the former president in a statement wherein he alleged that President Joe Biden may be engineering these cases against his political rival.

"Make no mistake – each and every one of these 'ballot challenges' are blatant attempts to steal the election for Crooked Joe Biden and disenfranchise over 100 million American voters," noted Cheung. "President Trump is the leading candidate for not only the Republican primary, but [also] the general election, and his opponents are desperate. Rest assured that he will fight each and every one of these disgraceful attacks on American democracy, he will win, and we will all Make America Great Again."
