Wyoming judge dismisses Trump ballot access case
January 18, 2024
CHEYENNE — An Albany County judge ordered the dismissal of a case that would have kept former President Donald J. Trump and U.S. Sen. Cynthia M. Lummis, R-Wyo., off future Wyoming ballots.
The case was dismissed without prejudice, leaving the door open for future lawsuits regarding their access to the ballot.
