Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's candidacy can be challenged, judge rules
The lawsuit is seeking to disqualify Greene from running for reelection by alleging that he engaged in a supposed insurrection against the United States government in breaching the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021.
U.S District Court Judge Amy Totenberg of the Northern District of Georgia, a former President Barack Obama appointee, rejected Greene's preliminary injunction and temporary restraining order request.
The judge wrote, "This case involves an interlocutor of constitutional interests of public import." A preliminary injunction motion reviewed on a fast track, coupled with the factual and historical novelty of this case, posed a particularly challenging legal issue that was worth resolving."
A federal judge ruled on Monday that a left-wing group’s challenge to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s candidacy in this year’s elections can proceed.
