Judge Jeff Masin heard arguments Monday on behalf of the Texas Republican and two challengers, including Catholic University of America law professor Victor Williams and a group of concerned New Jersey residents.
Masin says he expects to rule Tuesday on procedural questions and the underlying issue of whether Cruz satisfies the constitutional requirement that the president be a natural-born citizen.
Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, to a Cuban father and an American mother. He is a U.S. citizen.
The U.S. Supreme Court has not resolved questions on the requirement for presidents to be natural born.
