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.

That's actually not too uncommon .. trial dates can move a lot, depending on a lot of factors.
The key point of the article, however, is that the judge has not granted discovery. There's no sense in pretending there will be a trial if she can't jump that obstacle.
Stay tuned ladies and gentlemen as the worm turns...
Naw, he's just starting the countdown clock on bids/bribes.
As pissant posted on the other story about this:
Keyes v Obama Update
10/5/09 Defense Motion to Dismiss to be heard. Carter indicted only a very strong compelling reason would move him to dismiss at this point. He will review the defenses 9/4/09 MTD. He wants to hear the case on its merits. Discovery to be ordered 10/5/09 if MTD is thrown out.
1/11/10 Pre Trial Set - procedural for other motions, depositions, scheduling, etc
1/26/10 Trial Date Set - Earliest available date for Justice Carter.
So yes, discovery in less than a month is very, very good.
Perhaps that's why when reading from the teleprompter, Obama said in the speech to schoolkids today:
My mother couldn't afford to send me to the school where all the AMERICAN kids went.
Why?, you ask?”
Revelation 12:12 "Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time."
Fortunately I don’t think “personal embarrassment” holds any legal muster to block discovery, however that’s exactly what I anticipate they will try.
Bookmark for later.
Don't kid yourself, he would have first appointed a Czar for that...
Did you see the footprint on the alleged Kenyan birth certificate? Obama will not be able to walk barefoot anywhere for fear that someone will get his imprint or picture.
If he were into Bimbos that would be an avenue. Some hot chick could just offer to massage his feet. Yuk. That took me down a picture avenue I just can’t back out of fast enough.
But he’s a Marine. Might not work on him.
It has to do with the date. Meaning on or about on that date the court goes to trial.
Welcome to FR. Another day, another troll
Exactly! Both WND and Oily Taitz have a practice of turning the most routine and benign court proceedings into a major victory that is certain to lead to the disqualification of the TOTUS. Those of us who regularly practice law in the Federal Courts understand, however, that this is SOP: In nearly every case, the Federal District Court will issue a scheduling order, without regard to the actual merits of the claim(s) and defenses, setting deadlines for the completion of pre-trial disclosure, adding or dropping parties, and making dispositive motions, etc., as well dates for status conferences, the date of the pretrial conference, and the trial ready date. In addition, Federal District Courts routinely hold oral argument on motions to dismiss without regard to the significance of the case, the merits of the claims, or the likelihood of ultimate success.
