Judges Avoid Obama Lawsuit Appeal

Judges for the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals recently refused to hear a lawsuit challenging Obama’s eligibility to be president under Article 2, Section 1, of the U.S. Constitution. The challenge was refused on the grounds that the plaintiffs did not have legal standing to bring the lawsuit.

The judges then attempted to strong arm attorney Mario Apuzzo for bringing the lawsuit in the first place and show cause why he should not be fined and assessed damages for filing a “frivolous” appeal.  Apuzzo responded to the court claiming that if he were to be fined he had the right to know if the defendants could have reduced their “injury” if they had publically released Obama’s birth certificate. The court has now quickly discharged their order to show cause and drop the matter like the proverbial hot potato.


If the court had not jumped away from the issue, Apuzzo could have been in a position to demand that the defense produce the elusive long-form birth certificate that Obama has steadfastly refused to produce proving he is a “natural born” citizen, as required by the Constitution.

Hopefully, Apuzzo will not be intimidated by the court’s tactics and he will appeal his case to a higher court. Eventually one of the courts, perhaps the Supreme Court, will have to hear the case on its merits and demand that Obama show papers of some kind proving he is a “natural born” citizen, if he can.
