Ted Cruz Challenge Back In Court Next Week

Chris Bragg reported yesterday that “litigants seeking to kick Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz off the Republican primary presidential ballot, arguing that he is not a “natural born” citizen and thus cannot be president, have filed an expedited appeal in the case.

According to an attorney for the petitioners, Roger Bernstein, arguments are expected to be heard Wednesday Mar. 23 at 1 p.m. in the appellate division of  the Third Judicial Department.

Bernstein also noted via email that a Harvard Law professor, Einer Elhauge, has now submitted a brief backing up the argument that Cruz, who was born in Canada but whose mother was an American citizen, does not qualify to be president. The court will decide next Monday whether the friend of the court brief can be taken into account, Bernstein said.”
