Former President Donald Trump will remain on Michigan’s 2024 presidential primary ballot, as a judge rejected claims that his actions during the January 6 U.S. Capitol storming made him ineligible under the 14th Amendment.
Michigan Court of Claims Judge James Redford stated that the question of Trump’s eligibility presents a political, non-justiciable issue and is not ripe for adjudication at this time.

“The judicial action of removing a candidate from the presidential ballot and prohibiting them from running essentially strips Congress of its ability to ‘by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such a disability,’” wrote Judge Redford.
Adding, “The question of whether he is ineligible due to Section 3 of the 14th Amendment presents a political question that is nonjusticiable at the present time.”
“The question of whether Donald Trump is qualified or disqualified from appearing on the 2024 general election ballot in Michigan is not ripe for adjudication at this time,” decided Redford.
