I have always found that the number of responses in inversely proportional to the length of the source article. Could you please summarize? There are so many suits out there that it’s hard to keep track of them!
I'll give it my best (in a "nut-shell") non-lawyer attempt...
In "HOLLISTER v SOETORO - Joint Motion - To Substitute Reply Brief", they argue that not only do the plaintiff's have standing (citing case law), but the lower court in this case did in fact find they have standing (not word for word). They also bring up the publically known "fact" that Barry's father was never a U.S. citizen and that should bring into question he NBC status (as the show why in the motion)
In "HOLLISTER v SOETORO - JOINT MOTION - To Schedule Oral Argument", they go into the reason's why the court should allow for an oral argument (something that the courts in these eligibility cases have not been "fond" of to say the least). Attorney Hemenway also bring up the harsh rule 11 sanctions he received from the lower court judge, and how ridicule and name calling in abundant in all circles (i.e. the lower court, the media) objecting to the questioning of Barry's NBC status).
And in "HOLLISTER v SOETORO - JOINT RESPONSE in Opposition FILED" they state (& why) they don't want the Amicus Curiae(s) of Berg (Joyce) to be allowed in the case.
Hope that helps some.

You raise a good point. Post something that requires time and thought, poof, the readers/posters are gone. Tiger? MJ? Thread after thread after thread.
Serious legal briefing gets a few responses, while rants of a CA attorney draw hundreds. Odd.
