Another Obama Petition at U.S. Supreme Court

Another petition for writ of certiori questioning Obama’s eligibility to be President under the requirments of Article 2, Section 1, of the U.S. Constitution is being made before the U.S. Supreme Court. It requests that the Court review the appellate court decision refusing to hear evidence in the case.

This is the second petition to come before the Court basically requesting the same thing — that the Supreme Court take seriously the question of whether or not Obama qualifies as a “natural born” citizen since it is well known that his father was a British subject. Attorney John D. Hemenway’s case takes a somewhat different approach than the one brought by attorney Mario Apuzzo in that Hemenway’s argues that the constitutional rule of law was not applied by the lower courts.

A ruling is expected Monday by the Supreme Court on the first petition filed by Apuzzo. That ruling could have an impact on the Hemenway case as well. If the Court agrees with the petitioners, then the lower courts will have to allow the cases to be heard. Or, possibly, the Supreme Court could hear the case. In either case, Obama would finally be required to produce documents, such as his long form birth certificate, to prove he is a “natural born” citizen, which he has so far refused to do.
