Notre Dame Law School Professor and election law expert Derek Muller has been a go-to legal source for several media outlets covering the efforts to disqualify former President Donald Trump from the state's primary ballot, citing Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. 

Muller spoke about the unprecedented nature of the lawsuit against Trump and the court's ruling. “This is a major and extraordinary holding from a state supreme court,” Muller wrote on the Election Law Blog. “Never in history has a presidential candidate been excluded from the ballot under Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment. United States Supreme Court review seems inevitable, and it exerts major pressure on the court.”
