Trump v. Anderson was a SCOTUS in the Classroom case. It was decided on March 4, 2024.

This expedited case decided whether the Colorado Supreme Court erred when it excluded former President Trump’s name from the Republican primary ballot based on Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which bars officials who engage in insurrection from holding office in the future.
