Cruz’s New York eligibility case will get its day in court on Super Tuesday

Canadian-born Sen. Ted Cruz faces similar legal battles over his presidential eligibility in Pennsylvania, Illinois and Texas, where voters have filed suits claiming he is not a natural-born citizen.




A New York judge will hear a case against Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential eligibility Tuesday – one of four cases around the country aiming to kick Cruz off primary ballots.

Canadian-born Cruz faces similar legal battles in Pennsylvania, Illinois and Texas, where voters filed suits claiming he is not a natural-born citizen, a requirement to become president. Cruz’s lawyers have asked for the cases in Texas and Illinois to be dismissed.

As Cruz heads into Super Tuesday – when a dozen states vote on presidential candidates – two of the cases against him will be heard, in New York and Illinois. Both states hold Republican primaries in April.

Cruz has brushed off questions about his eligibility, calling it a “non-issue” and “settled law.” Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, to an American mother, which made him a U.S. and Canadian citizen at birth. The question clouding the Cruz campaign is whether his U.S. citizenship is considered “natural-born,” making him eligible for the presidency.

David Weinstein, a New York state Supreme Court justice, will consider the claim from Barry Korman and William Gallo that citizenship does not just pass from parent to child. The state’s election board will defend Cruz’s place on the April 19 ballot.
