An Illinois lawyer failed Tuesday in his effort to get Sen. Ted Cruz tossed off the Illinois presidential-primary ballot on the grounds of his Canadian birth.

According to Judge Kirby, Lawrence Joyce only provided a copy of his case to lawyers representing Mr. Cruz and the Illinois state electoral board.
