In a historic 6-3 ruling, the justices said for the first time that former presidents have absolute immunity from prosecution for their official acts and no immunity for unofficial acts.

The Associated Press reported the outcome means an additional delay before the Republican presidential frontrunner may face trial in the case brought by special counsel Jack Smith.

Monday’s ruling is the last of the term, and it came over two months after the Supreme Court heard arguments, far slower than in other high court cases involving the presidency. 

Trump has denied doing anything wrong and has said this prosecution and three others are politically motivated to try to keep him from returning to the White House.

The Associated Press contributed to this report. This story was reported from Washington, D.C.
