Will the US Supreme Court disqualify Donald Trump from holding presidential office under Section 3 of the Constitution?

Resolves yes if the Supreme Court holds that Donald Trump cannot hold presidential office in virtue of Section 3 of the US Constitution, at any point before the date on which Trump would be inaugurated. Resolves no otherwise (e.g. if the Court rules that Trump may hold office under Section 3, or that it lacks jurisdiction to hear the case, or that Section 3 is not "self-executing" and that Congress must thus vote to disqualify Trump).

Seems weird to me that this market is so high, but the "will trump win" markets don't seem to have been affected. If he's disqualified from being president, he won't win the election, right?

@Fion I hear that Republican voters don't care about electability...
