The Oregon Supreme Court is considering removing Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 ballots due to the 14th Amendment’s “insurrectionist ban.”

This move follows a lawsuit filed by a liberal advocacy group, Free Speech For People, on the grounds of Trump’s alleged incitement of the January 6 insurrection.

“Granting the petition will protect (the anti-Trump challengers’) liberty interest in voting in a lawfully-conducted election without the risk of major voter confusion or votes ‘wasted’ upon ineligible or disqualified candidates who appear on the ballot,” the challengers wrote.

Similar challenges have occurred in other states, with differing outcomes.

The 14th Amendment disqualifies officials engaged in insurrection from holding office, but there are legal ambiguities regarding its enforcement.

The court has requested additional arguments and is deliberating on the issue.

The impact of removing Trump from the primary ballot may be limited due to the timing of the Oregon primary.
