Ping...to Hatfield appeal filings to Fulton Co. Superior Court.
It’s a good appeal filing by Hatfield. It lays the groundwork for his future filings.
Looks like a rock ‘em, sock ‘em set of filings!
Hatfield says “decisions of the Secretary of State are (abbreviated):
a. in violation of the constitution
b. in excess of authority
c. result of unlawful procedures
d. based on errors of law
e. clearly erroneous
f. arbitrary and capricious and an abuse of discretion
Too bad that judge’s name isn’t “McCoy”.
Would that be considered prognostication or simply identifying a perpetrator's established modus operandi?

Malihi would have worn that name very well.
Malihi’s ruling will almost certainly be rubber-stamped in Fulton Co. Superior Court. It might even be rubber-stamped all to way to SCOTUS, given the stakes.
What piques my curiosity the most is what it's going to take before this starts making national headlines and nightly reports. There has been so much effort to keep all of this "under the radar" and yet, from what I've been able to gather, it's getting attention despite the media blackout.
At some point somebody will have to cover it just to "get the scoop" on the others. I doubt it will be properly covered (see @How Mitt Romneys Mexican-Born Father Was Eligible to be President), as it'll probably be just more "he was born in Hawaii" BS instead of "he isn't a natural born citizen", but it'll get covered and that's the last thing to be desired.
I doubt it.
Fogbowers are showing some concern over Hatfield challenging whether the record at his hearing supported a conclusion of law that Obama was born in HI and also whether a conclusion was supported that Obama’s mom was a citizen!
Hatfield's case was based on BHO Sr. not being a citizen and not where Barry was born and his mom's citizenship was never challenged IIRC. Fogbowers are wondering whether Hatfield is improperly attempting to raise new issues of jus soli in this appeal that he did not argue at the hearing.

Thanks for the ping.
We will hear about this in the MSM, eventually. Things are reaching a saturation point.
Pray. Pray for our country.
On appeal, it’s not clear if they are supposed to name the original defandant or if the state is put on the defensive. It was the SoS’s decision, but the original case was filed against the candidate, not the SoS. I doubt the judge will have a problem with it.
I think it’s a mistake for any of these plaintiffs to enter any of Obama’s alleged birth certificates as evidence. Keep the burden of proof on Obama. There’s no probative evidence to show where he was born and who his parents are and what their citizenship was at the time of birth. The only legal precdent is the Minor definition of NBC, which precludes the children of foreign nationals. Then they can point to the divorce records and Barack Sr.’s immigration file.
Why do you consider the divorce records and immigration file to be of more value as "probative evidence" than the "alleged birth certificates"?
And a second point...isn't the burden of proof already on Obama according to Georgia statutes?
Are they appealing the administrative hearing or the SoS decision? What would have happened if the SoS had rendered a decision without a hearing?
I guess the question is whether the hearing is legally viewed as an independent judicial event or merely an internal administrative process within the SoS office.
Since the SoS made the final decision it seems to me that he has some responsibility to defend his position.
Aren’t most if not all of THEM disbarred?
