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.

Cook County Circuit Court Judge Maureen Ward Kirby did not deliver a decision on the merits of “birtherism” — the claim Mr. Cruz is not a natural-born citizen and thus ineligible to be president — instead dismissing the case on a procedural matter.

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