Over the last several weeks, Obama’s attorney, Michael Jablonski, had attempted several tactics to keep this case from moving forward. He first tried to have it dismissed, then argued that it was irrelevant to Obama. After that, Jablonski argued that a state could not, under the law, determine who would or would not be on a ballot and later, that Obama was simply too busy with the duties of office to appear.
After all these arguments were dispatched by the Georgia Court, Jablonski, in desperation, wrote to the Georgia Secretary of State attempting to place Obama above the law and declared that the case was not to he heard and neither he nor his client would participate.
Secretary of State, Brian Kemp, fired back a letter hours later telling Jablonski he was free to abandon the case and not participate but that he would do so at his and his clients peril.
ObamaBallotChallenge.com reports on a statement given by one of the ballot challenge Plaintiffs, Carl Swensson:
..............We argued that all the evidence needed to be entered in to record so the Judge allowed for a speedy hearing where all evidence was entered into the court record. What that means is this… Any appeal, if one is even possible, would be based on the evidence provided by the lawyers in each case. Both Van Irion and My lawyer, Mark Hatfield made certain that our cases and evidence in those two cases would be closed so as not to be affiliated, in any way, with “Birther” Orly Taitz. As expected, she was an embarrassment.

And if everyone here is so up in arms about Obama's father, you had better take a look at where George Romney was born.....Mexico. Look under same link at eligibility challenges. This has got to be one of the most tired threads on ATS, so much so that I get tired of seeing it still AFTER ALMOST 4 YEARS. This country has enough problems.......

I can't seem to find the filing for this in court. Meaning the lawsuit submitted by the attorney or case number.
Does anyone have the links or case/docket number?
Very important to validate this information.

At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.

Obama is A CITIZEN of the United States of America. People need to realize , you must be a Natural Born citizen , to run for the president of the United States.
My question is whether he is Natural .. or not. If he his .. good job .. he sucks as president .. if not .. then he should go to jail.

So if the senate makes a ruling that Obama is Natural Born in regards to the Minor vs. Harpersett case.
Does the GA suit get thrown?

Either way , has no real impact with the elections so close .. unless he gets reelected , and i don't think he will regardless.

I just realized that there is a strong correlation between the uptick in Birther buzz and the GOP prospects for 2012 declining with Newt and Mitt at eachothers throats to get a Nomination to an election that niether of them can win.
I don't know if these stories are just an outlet for frustration...or if they think the American public might buy this xenophic fantasy fiction.
Either way...as the GOP slides, the birthers rise...it's a socialogical phenomena.
And given that...2012 looks to be a year where all types of psuedo-racist, BS will be thrown into the circus by a desperate far right.

OK but will this stand up to a higher court? Say the Supreme Court?
Seriously doubt it...
Anyways, it seems the op has gotten some bad info -
Boycotting the hearing, the Chairman of the Democratic Party of Georgia, Mike Berlon, said in a statement that "it is well established that there is no issue here – a fact validated time and again by courts in this country. In light of these developments, the Democratic Party of Georgia has no plans to continue to be involved in these baseless cases."
Judge Mahili has deferred making a decision until February 5 when another hearing will take place.
Georgia's primary is March 6.
So for now, President Obama's name remains on the ballot and that Democrats can vote for him.
They also presented some of the ridiculous birther stuff (photoshopped BC and forged SSC). Obama will be on the ballot and win easily, imo.
