America’s Future Files SCOTUS Brief Supporting Due Process Owed to Donald Trump and Every American

Florida – January 26, 2024 – America’s Future, Inc., a national leader in the fight to preserve individual rights, promote American values and traditions, and protect the nation’s Constitutional Republic, announced that it filed an Amicus brief in the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) in Donald J. Trump v Norma Anderson, et al., Dkt. No. 23-719. This case is of national consequence as it regards a defective judgment and court order by the Colorado Supreme Court to remove former President Donald Trump, who is the leading Republican presidential candidate, from the 2024 Republican presidential primary ballot for reasons offensive to fundamental legal principles and in violation of President Trump’s due process rights, and therefore the due process rights of all Americans. The brief was filed on Thursday, January 18, 2024.

“Americans will not sit idly by while there is an assault on our national character and the equal application of the law,” said Mary O’Neill, Executive Director of America’s Future. “The ruling out of Colorado’s highest court is patently absurd and politically corrupt. We urge the SCOTUS to reverse the Colorado Supreme Court and instruct Colorado to restore President Trump to the Colorado Republican 2024 presidential primary election ballot, as well as the general election ballot.”

By way of background, on December 19, 2024, the Colorado Supreme Court issued a ruling excluding Donald Trump from the 2024 Republican presidential primary ballot. In a 4-to-3 “word salad” opinion, the court ordered that Donald Trump is disqualified from capturing the 2024 election for the President of the United States based on a malformed legal conclusion that Donald Trump “engaged” in an “insurrection” on January 6, 2021, against the United States. The precise issue before the SCOTUS is: Whether Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment applies in this case, and if so, whether President Trump engaged in an insurrection against the United States on January 6, 2021?

The America’s Future brief deconstructs this constitutional provision to ensure each word or phrase germane to the issue can be properly understood and meaningfully addressed and employs plain language and short explanations to illustrate precisely that the Colorado Supreme Court erred in its interpretation of this constitutional provision as applied to the facts and this case.

Oral argument in this case is scheduled for Thursday, February 8, 2024. The audio will be live-streamed, and thereafter, it will be published on the SCOTUS website here.
