The case was filed by John Anthony Castro, a “Republican” primary presidential candidate who contested Trump’s appearance on the Nevada ballot.
On January 8, 2024, Obama appointed Judge Gloria M. Navarro dismissed the lawsuit that tried to remove Trump from he ballot.
John Anthony Castro had recently tried to do the same thing in Arizona.
Dems were hoping Castro would win, but United States District Judge Douglas L. Rayes, ruled that Castor didn’t even have the standing to bring his claim, and the case was dismissed.
From Trending Politics:
The court’s decision was based on the concept of “standing,” a legal principle that requires a person filing a lawsuit to prove they have suffered specific and actual harm from the action they’re challenging. The court found that at the time of filing, the evidence didn’t show that Castro was in direct competition with Trump or that he would be specifically harmed by Trump being on the election ballot.
Furthermore, the court found that Castro’s campaign finance reports, filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), did not support his standing allegations. According to FEC records, between January 1, 2023, and September 30, 2023, Castro’s campaign reported a total of $678.00 in contributions, with minimal campaign presence in Arizona.

“The facts as they existed at the time Castro filed his verified complaint do not show that Castro is truly competing with Trump or will be injured in any concrete way by Trump’s appearance on Arizona’s Presidential Preference Election ballot,” the court document ruled.
Castro has files 27 federal lawsuits challenging Trum’s eligibility to run under the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution and threaten Trump with “legal hell”
As if Trump isn’t in legal hell already with Biden’s goons after him.
Not only was Castro’s complaint thrown out other complaints were filed by a third party, and the ARP was dismissed as well for the same reason.
The court order that the case be closed which nixes the legal effort in against the former President.
