On Sunday, the Supreme Court indicated that it will hand down a ruling on Monday, leading to speculation that it will issue a decision on the Trump ballot before Tuesday’s Super Tuesday primaries.

The Colorado Supreme Court ruled that former President Donald Trump was ineligible to serve as president of the United States based on a clause in the post-Civil War constitutional provision of the 14th amendment which bars someone who swore an oath to uphold the constitution and then was “engaged in insurrection” from holding office. Oral arguments on the case were heard on an expedited schedule on February 8.

Illinois and Maine have also barred Trump from the ballot in their states, but the decisions are on hold pending the outcome of the Supreme Court case.

The court almost always issues decisions on days when the justices are scheduled to take the bench, and the next scheduled court day isn’t until March 15, and the justices are not scheduled to be in the court on Monday. Thus, the announcement that an opinion will be issued tomorrow heightened expectations that a ruling in the ballot case will be posted on the court’s website at approximately 10 a.m. EST.
