The Messenger‘s Tom LoBianco attended the first Rule of Law Summit and reported on the Society’s re-launch in a story published November 10, 2023, “A Trump Legal Maelstrom Seems Destined to Place the 2024 Campaign Before the Supreme Court.”
In it, he quotes board member Judge J. Michael Luttig on the Supreme Court’s consideration of whether the former president is disqualified from holding office again under the Fourteenth Amendment:
“Eventually all of those cases will be find their way to the Supreme Court of the United States, and the Supreme Court will have to decide whether the former president is disqualified because of his efforts to overturn the last presidential election,” Luttig told The Messenger this week, in an interview ahead of the launch of the Society for the Rule of Law – a group of conservative NeverTrump lawyers.
And, Luttig said, he hopes the high court decides the issue before the Nov. 5, 2024, election day. “It would be a constitutional crisis for the Supreme Court not to decide this question until the former president is elected president of the United States again in 2024,” he said.
