The Colorado Supreme Court ruled that former President Donald Trump is ineligible to be president under the 14th Amendment, but legal challenges in other states could still impact his eligibility for the 2024 ballot.

Liberal groups have filed lawsuits in several states, including Michigan and Minnesota, alleging that Trump’s involvement in the Capitol riot disqualifies him.

The Michigan Supreme Court is considering an appeal, while the Minnesota Supreme Court left open the possibility of disqualifying Trump from the general election ballot. (Trending: Assault Weapons Ban Set To Take Effect, Here’s What To Know)

Other states also have pending lawsuits, and the Supreme Court’s ruling on the 14th Amendment’s insurrection clause will have a significant impact on these cases.

“We conclude that petitioners have standing and that their claims are ripe as to the issue of whether former President Trump should be excluded from the 2024 Republican presidential nomination primary,” the Minnesota Supreme Court wrote.

“We reach a different conclusion regarding petitioners’ claim that it would be error for the Secretary of State to place former President Trump’s name on the ballot for the 2024 general election ballot.”

Several other states have pending lawsuits, including Wisconsin, Oregon, Virginia, New Mexico, and New York, among others.
