Selendy Gay Authors Amicus Brief in Trump v. Anderson

On behalf of former Republican members of Congress, attorneys at Selendy Gay filed an amicus brief before the U.S. Supreme Court in Trump v. Anderson, et. al. The Court will consider whether former President Donald Trump should be disqualified  from the 2024 presidential election ballot over his role in the deadly Capitol attack on January 6, 2021.

The brief argues in support of the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision that the former president violated his oath of office and engaged in an insurrection against the Constitution, and is therefore disqualified from federal office under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Partners Faith Gay and Temidayo Aganga-Williams, and associates Babak Ghafarzade, Masha Simonova, Adam Gould, and Anna Nabutovsky authored the amicus brief.

With the brief, the former Republican members of Congress seek to “ensure that the unprecedented attack on Congress on January 6, 2021 is correctly viewed as an insurrection against the Constitution; that this shameful aberration from Congress’s historic role in the peaceful transfer of power does not repeat itself; that the Constitution, with all of its requirements, is enforced; and that Congress is not made the target of further political violence.”
