Skip to comments.Attorney wants to argue eligibility in Washington (Obama birth-certificate)
Posted on 12/30/2009 12:55:02 PM PST by americanophile
A lawyer who has fought government attorneys in courthouses across the nation over the issue of President Barack Obama's eligibility to occupy the White House now wants the dispute moved to the nation's capital, since that's where government lawyers have said there would be proper jurisdiction.
Orly Taitz is asking the California judge who earlier dismissed her clients' claims on jurisdictional issues, noting that the proper venue would be Washington, to simply move the case there.
"During the October 5 motion hearing pursuant to the motion to dismiss due to lack of jurisdiction, the moving parties, the assistant U.S. attorneys David DeJutte and Roger West have argued that they believe that the proper jurisdiction for this case is the District of Columbia," Taitz argues in a new court filing before Judge David Carter.
"On October 29 this case was dismissed for want of jurisdiction only and was never heard on the merits, as this court noted in the above order that the proper jurisdiction is the District of Columbia court," she wrote.
Taitz told WND today that there could be no opposition from the U.S. attorneys since they had argued for the jurisdiction in Washington, D.C., and the case then could be heard on its merits.
WND has reported on dozens of legal challenges to Obama's status as a "natural born citizen." The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President."
Some of the lawsuits question whether Obama was actually born in Hawaii, as he insists. If he was born out of the country,

That’s the wrong arguement.
His commie daddy is the prize.
Just file the case in D.C.
Why ask for a transfer? If Defendant claims the case was dismissed with prejudice in CA, then state the judge ruled the proper place to file was in D.C.
Dick Cheney needs to tell us the truth. He knows.
It would simply amaze me if he could find a Judge in the DC Court system that would take on such a case.
Since Zero’s new Department of Classified Documents is charged with releasing documents over 25 year old, perhaps it could release his long form birth certificate, school records, travel records, health records, financial records that are over 25 yr old. /sarc
There is no case to move any longer. She filed it, she argued it, it was dismissed. The time to request a change of venue would have been before she got her case tossed out and not after.
Orly is half-addled, so otherwise interesting issues never go anywhere.
It lets Interpol do this, but it’s at Interpol’s option. The US Fedguv can’t force them. If Interpol gets crosswise enough with Bummer, well shoot, they might volunteer.

Every member of the Supreme Court, every member of congress, every member of the Joint Chiefs, most members of the DOD, CIA, FBI, Secret Service and state run media, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS, NPR, MSNBC, Fox and print news, knows that Barack Hussein Obama does NOT meet Article II Section I constitutional requirements for the office he holds. By his own biography, there is NO way he can pass the test. The hard evidence is so far beyond overwhelming, it is ridiculous.
But not ONE member of Americas most powerful people will dare confront Obama and his anti-American cabal on the subject. The Constitution does NOT stand.
Half of the people you expect to stop this insanity are quiet co-conspirators in the silent coup. The other half is paralyzed by fear, motivated only by political self-preservation.
Americans keep asking what they can do because they see that none of their leaders are doing anything to stop the demise of their beloved country. Its the right question, because those leaders are NOT going to stop this thing.
WHO WILL SAVE FREEDOM?
A brave few This is how it was in the beginning, how it has always been and how it will be.
DR. ORLY TAITZ, Phil Berg and Gary Kreep, ALL OF WHOM HAVE MADE DEFENDING THE CONSTITUTION AND THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE A PERSONAL AMBITION, IN THE ABSENCE OF ANY CONSTITUTION LEADERSHIP.
A PRECIOUS FEW, BUT THEY EXIST and the walls are indeed closing in on Obama and his evil cabal. IF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FAIL TO GET BEHIND THESE BRAVE FEW WHO ARE SEEKING PEACEFUL REDRESS, ALL THE PEACEFUL OPTIONS WILL EVAPORATE AS IF THEY NEVER EXISTED. WE WILL RETURN TO A PRE-1776 AMERICA OVERNIGHT..
Do YOU fear Obama?
A precious few, indeed. Lets get behind those few brave patriots who are out there in the trenches every day working to prove Obamas inelgibility:
Dr. Orly has put her lifes blood into this fight. SHE HAS MADE DEFENDING THE CONSTITUTION AND THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE A PERSONAL AMBITION, IN THE ABSENCE OF ANY CONSTITUTION LEADERSHIP FROM COWARDLY REPUBLICANS AND THE SCOTUS.
Dr. Orly is the ONLY one out there in the trenches EVERY day hitting Obama on multiple fronts and trying to bring him down. It is reported that she is more than $8,000 in debt from using her own funds for expenses in her flights across the U.S for interviews, speeches, serving papers and meeting with officials.
She has even gone to Isreal and Russia to spread the message about Obamas inelgibility!
She states the case expertly, including the bc and natural born citizen aspect, when not abused by the U.S. state-controlled media. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/132880
Sure, Dr. Orly makes mistakes. We all do. But Dr. Orly is no dummy. How many of us could go to a foreign country, learn 5 languages, establish a successful dental practice, a successful real estate business AND pass the California state bar- one of the hardest in the U.S. to pass?
She may be a mail order attorney and not a Harvard lawyer, but she IS an attorney with all the rights and privilages of a Harvard lawyer nevertheless!
The point is; she has the passion, the zeal, the courage of her convictions and the love of America and its freedoms (unlike many of our great attorneys and patriots who criticize her) that will not let her give up!
She is exhausted. She is nervous. She is frustrated. It is reported that she gets by on 4-5 hours of sleep per night, and her family is very worried about her health- as well as her safety.
She makes mistakes. But she will NOT give up. She will keep on until she gets it right.
So lets get behind this great little Russian refugee and great American patriot.
Stop tearing her apart. The Obots on FR dont need our help.
The obots are scared to death of this little lady and her determination. Thats why they come out in droves all over the net on forums, chat rooms and even the national news to attack and ridicule.
“There is no case to move any longer. She filed it, she argued it, it was dismissed. The time to request a change of venue would have been before she got her case tossed out and not after.”
Maybe she’s citing the hallowed school yard precedent of the “do over.”
Of course they know.
Yes, things like this can hold together for a while but eventually something breaks. I hope it breaks in time to save our nation.
I’ve written to my state and federal reps twice about this. All of them are RINOS. Both times I get the same idiotic responses. Weenies! All of them. In the primaries I will vote against them all. I don’t care who is running.
When tyranny comes these yappers will spit shine the jack boots crushing our necks.
Not this whack job again. Please, can we possibly get a sane, competent attorney to champion this cause?
Ah yes, the hallowed legal concept of operor super.
Taitz is over her head. Let me explain this again:
Nearly every state (if not every state) has a very short statute of limitations for challenging the eligibility of candidates for elected office, whether at the federal, state, or local level. Although the specific procedure varies from state-to-state, the statute of limitations usually begins to run when the candidate’s names is placed upon the ballot either for the primary or general election. The statute of limitations is short (usually thirty days or less) because elections are expensive and therefore, elibility disputes need to be decided BEFORE the ballots are printed and the candidate spends big bucks on the campaign. Oily Taitz should have filed the eligibiliy lawsuit on behalf of Dr. Keyes, not after Obama won, but at the time that Obama’s name was placed upon the ballot. IMHO, OT really needs to get out of the litigation business becaue while her heart may be in the right place, she really doesn’t have a clue what she is doing.
In other words, if this woman didn't exist, the Left would have had to invent her. (And who's to say that's not precisely what happened?)
The case that Taitz wants transferred was dismissed, with prejudice, on Oct. 29. It can't be transferred, anymore than a failure in a course at an accredited college can be transferred for credit to another accredited college.
This is just more of her nonsense, aimed at smokescreening her incompetence and riling up the ignorant to believe the judicial system is rigged against them.
