Cook County Circuit Court Judge Maureen Ward Kirby dismissed a challenge of Canadian-born Ted Cruz's listing on Illinois ballots in the March 15 primary.
The judge made the decision based on a technicality, finding that the complainant, attorney Lawrence Joyce, failed to send a copy of the suit to the Republican Texas senator or Illinois electoral board members, as required by state law. Joyce provided a copy of the complaint to attorneys for Cruz and the elecoral board.
Joyce said he would make a decision on whether to appeal the case after Cruz's results in the Super Tuesday elections. Cruz is the projected winner in Texas and Oklahoma.
