Similar lawsuits have been filed in Colorado and Minnesota.
Benson contends that Michigan’s Legislature does not grant her the authority to disqualify a presidential candidate under the 14th Amendment.
The judge stated that Trump’s appearing or not appearing on the ballot is a “federal constitutional question of enormous consequence.”
“Michigan courts have held that administrative agencies generally do not have the power to determine constitutional questions.”
