3 October 2008 To discredit the merits of the lawsuit and have it summarily dismissed, all Barack Hussein Obama (a/k/a Barry SOETORO)has to do is provide a legitimate copy of his birth certificate. The lawsuit was filed by Philadelphia lawyer Phillip Berg in late August.
Instead, Obama has opted to fight the lawsuit as illustrated in the federal court documents which can be viewed online HERE.
As they say, however, the devil is in the details...
First, it is notable that Barack Hussein Obama retained Washington lawyer Joseph SANDLER of the Washington law firm Sandler, Reiff, and Young to fight the lawsuit. Who is Joseph SANDLER? He is a lawyer who has represented CAIR - the Council on American Islamic Relations and MoveOn.org.
Last week, Obama and the Democratic National Committee filed a Motion to Dismiss the lawsuit. On Monday, Attorney berg filed a response to that motion, requesting (1) that the suit not be dismissed, and (2) that the Court order the production of documents that would validate Obama's constitutional qualifications as a legitimate candidate for president.
As mentioned - the devil is in the details - well beyond the obvious (the obvious being a CAIR lawyer responding on behalf of Obama).
Over the last few days, there have been relentless Internet rumors that the court has dismissed the Berg lawsuit. As of this writing, that is untrue, and Attorney Berg claims that he is confident that the defendant's Motion to Dismiss will be defeated.
Based on information I obtained confidentially from sources close to this case within the last 48 hours, it appears that the court will, in fact, dismiss this complaint. Unfortunately, the dismissal will be based on a series of obscure technicalities and citations, thus setting the stage for a larger constitutional crisis in the months ahead.Count on it.
