Where it will likely not be heard
Utah resident Walter Wagner has appealed the dismissal of his case against Ted Cruz to the US Supreme Court (case no. 15-1243). The dismissal was on the grounds that Wagner had no standing to sue. He still lacks standing.
In other Cruz eligibility news, CDR Kerchner reports a new ballot access challenge in New Jersey filed by Victor Williams, a Republican write-in candidate for president. Williams cites New Jersey statute 19:23-15 on primary candidate petitions, a provision that provides that the candidate must certify eligibility and must agree to accept the nomination. That requirement, however, would seem not to apply to the presidential primary. As we learned from Mario Apuzzo’s spectacular loss in a New Jersey Obama eligibility case filed by Nicholas Purpora, Mickey Mouse could run for president in New Jersey. The statute that is applicable to presidential primaries in New Jersey is 19:25-3, and since that statute does not even require the consent of the candidate to be on the ballot, one could infer that the candidate has no other duties in preparing the petition, such as certification of eligibility.
