Skip to comments.Shocker! Judge orders trial on eligibility issue
Posted on 09/08/2009 2:15:45 PM PDT by pissant
A California judge today tentatively scheduled a trial for Jan. 26, 2010, for a case that challenges Barack Obama's eligibility to be president based on questions over his qualifications under the requirements of the U.S. Constitution.
If the case actually goes to arguments before U.S. District Judge David Carter, it will be the first time the merits of the dispute have been argued in open court, according to one of the attorneys working on the issue.
In a highly anticipated hearing today before Carter, several motions were heard, including a resolution to long-standing questions about whether attorney Orly Taitz properly served notice on the defendants, which she had.
In a second ruling, Carter ordered that attorney Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation can be added to the case to represent defendants Wiley Drake and Markham Robinson, who had been removed by an earlier court order. Drake, the vice presidential candidate for the American Independent Party, and Robinson, the party's chairman, were restored as plaintiffs.
But the judge did not immediately rule on Taitz' motion to be granted discovery that is the right to see the president's still-concealed records. Nor did Carter rule immediately on a motion to dismiss the case, submitted by the U.S. government, following discussion over Taitz' challenge to the work of a magistrate in the case.

I bet bammy is all wee wee’s up tonight. I imagine the First wookie is throwing crap around up there in the WH.
Are you related to HOLDONOW?
How long until the trolls show up on this thread?
This makes no sense.
1. Why would Kreep represent “defendants” from the AIP ?
2. How can he schedule a trial without going thru a discovery period ?
I’m looking forward to other info coming out.
President Obamas defenders also said they would file a motion seeking to block any discovery of evidence at this point.
It’s called a typo
According to Larry Sinclair, he ain't that into hot chicks.
Happens to all of us.
Some hot chick could just offer to massage his feet.
He would be far more interested in a hot guy, trust me on that one.
My mother couldn’t afford to send me to the school where all the AMERICAN kids went.
Once an Indonesian, always an Indonesian? If he thought of himself as an AMERICAN, he would have said:
WHERE ALL THE OTHER AMERICAN KIDS WENT.
You signed up today, just to comment on this?
Dinner says it will never get that far. Motions, motions and more motions and then a 1,500 page Summary Judgment Motion with affidavits and brief. It will never see one day of trial.
That’s BS. That’s just his sob story and justifcation as the reason he went to a Muslim school. His stepfather was Muslim and he changed his name to Barry Soetoro and enrolled him in a Muslim school.
Nor did Carter rule immediately on a motion to dismiss the case, submitted by the U.S. government , following discussion over Taitz’ challenge to the work of a magistrate in the case.
What business is it of the “U.S. Government”? This case is against Obama as an individual. Why should our tax money and resources be used to defend a possible criminal who has plenty of his own money to spend and numerous lawyers to defend his position? That STINKS!
Right! This defense should be fully and completely, his legal defense fund, his warchest of overseas internet millions...

Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
I want to know why in the f**k he went by the name of Barry Soetoro for several years but stated on documents that he never used any aliases or other names, when he clearly did. I wish Major Garrett would ask that ugly, skinny, gayfer POS that question.
and psssst. you are a troll on the BC threads.
I don't know about all the instances of where he had to swear to never having used another name or alias but in the case of his law license, I think the question meant had he ever been licensed under a different name.

Have you ever been known by any other first, middle or last name?
I find it odd that so many on these boards claim to know the ins and outs of federal law, particular constitutional law and what the Constitution requires, yet do not know the basics on trial practice and motions practice...
You may have a point as to relative experience or inexperience with reference to specific legal process, as many of us do have other day jobs, but I find it interesting that you could make such definitive statements about all 300,000+ Freepers from your one day trial membership here. (pun intended.)...:) Welcome...
Whether or not the motions and Carter’s orders will pan out the way many of us would like, does remain to be seen.
But at the least, we can be intrigued with this development, which takes this sort of case further than any other case like it has been so far.
before even reading the materials.
Hey, that sounds like how Congress and the POTUS handle major legislation...
Has the Illinois State Bar investigated Obama?

or on my behalf in law or equity
My question is more a legal one. If he became Soetoro, can he reappear magically someday as Obama without legally changing it back. Is he really Obama anymore?
Um, I don’t think this Marine now sitting as the Judge in this case is birbable. Stuff your accusation where it belongs, back in your nasty little brain.
That is a question I researched but did not come to a conclusion..intent to defraud may be a necessary element..
ComeOnNow - you signed up today, made four comments, all about this case.
Are you fer or agin 0bama? Just wondering.
And what ever became of that thought that he may have violated Illinois ethics laws (stop laughing). I read this about a year ago and it died?:
No need to wonder
You’re new here. The Birthers invented a make-believe requirement found nowhere in the Constitution that “Natural Born” is defined as being born on U.S. soil to parents who were both American citizens.
Since Obama’s father is Kenyan, he is not “Natural Born” according to Birther mythology.
What is a natural born citizen of the United States (and please refer to SCOTUS case law)?
It’s certainly no mythology that NBC is a US Constitutional requirement for holding the office of the POTUS.
Why block discovery? Why not release the long form BC?
Why not release the college records?
yeah, there are a lot of answers "the Transparent One" isn't providing. We all need to ask, why?
My mother couldn't afford to send me to the school where all the AMERICAN kids went.
I wonder how many American kids there were in Indonesia in the early 1970s? Enough for a whole school? If mama was so intent on homeschooling him, I wonder why Lolo Soetro adopted him (to give him cover of Indonesian citizenship) and enrolled him the local madrassa and registered him as a muslim?
That was my first thought. The US govt doesn't have to prove that it's eligible to be President. A private citizen should have to prove that before he's ever allowed on a ballot in any state in the union.
What a waste of taxpayer money!!
lol. but I'm being redundant.
The judge is a Marine, not a libtard unless you are offering evidence that he is.
He *was* appointed by Clinton..
The Judge is a Marine?!
Oh, thank God.
Many Federal Judges routinly hold oral argument on motions to dismiss. Apparently Carter is one of them.
same to ya.
Good to see you found the thread. I was going to ping you today. :-)
Geez...a lawyer with a habit of exaggerating the significance of routine court proceedings... get me the press room! Hold page one!
While I don’t agree with all of WND’s blather - it sure is better than page ZERO with the Ministry of Propoganda, don’t you think?
This going get gooddd
It was submitted just last Friday and the plaiontiff is entitled to respond. Motions in U.S. district copurts must be filed and served on the opposition a certain number of days prior to being considered/heard. The exact number escapes my memory right now. Federal judges normally hear motions one or two days per month.
It weas filed just last week in order stretch out the case.
Glenn has been a real turd when it comes to this subject, frankly.
he has, but so have ALL of the others. I think they want to run with it but they want some really concrete evidence first. I have no doubts that Beck would not mention it until he has made his case and has some verified facts to present. It’s very hard, as we all know because the o team has scrubbed and hidden things across the globe. They missed some things and that will bring him down eventually. If not now, it will in the 2012 primaries.
LOL! Been over this ground already w/afnamvet. See my post 149, his reply post 162. You need to vent your anger at ComeOnNow...seems to be the “troll-du jour.”
Careful FRiend with the use of “dismissed” in court proceedings, which means rejected, thrown out and not the every day one of concluded. (smile) Had me concerned for one moment that I had missed something bad.
I think that call Phantom Zonee
