CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Local political experts are weighing in on Monday's historic Supreme Court decision allowing for some immunity for former President Donald Trump. 

In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that Trump may claim immunity on “official acts,” which are acts he committed during his tenure in office. 

As for November, Monday's ruling could play a major role in how this affects future case decisions for Trump. J. Miles Coleman with UVA’s Center for Politics says realistically, the election could happen before he stands trial. 

"I think really the practical effect of this is that it makes it a little less likely that we would have any other case on Trump get decided before the election,” Coleman said.

Coleman also pointed out that the ruling could play a part in the campaign for the Democrats with strong dissents from the three liberal justices.
