If the AG turns the case down, the way is open for plaintiffs to act on their own. That’s by statute. The AG sort of has a right of first refusal to act as counsel, but cannot shut the case down.

Yes, but I think D’Onofrio still has to ask “leave of the court” from the DC Circuit to act as prosecutor on behalf of the USA.

Will the DC Circuit be influenced by politics regarding whether to grant leave of the court to D’Onofrio?

Of course, but I suspect the politics will skew towards the court granting leave. The Chrysler dealers are exactly the kind of plaintiff covered by quo warranto. They can show injury in fact directly caused by agents of Obama acting as POTUS. If quo warranto does indeed apply to POTUS (yet to be litigated, but will be the first challenge) the court would seem to me to be hard pressed not to allow the Chrysler dealers to demand proof of Obama’s eligibility ot be POTUS.

Why? Proving Obama’s eligibility should be a snap, according to Obama partisans on and off the courts! What possible legal reason could the court imagine that would make it politically acceptable to justify blockading a jury trial at which Obama should be expected to merely present his “self-authenticating” HI short-form COLB and everyone goes home?

Denying leave of the court to file quo warranto for any reason other than a ruling that quo warranto doesn't apply to POTUS would scream “the judges are protecting Obama from something”.

If the court grants leave to file, then the trier of fact will be a jury (from memory), not any Democrat appointed judges of the DC Circuit. Burden of proof will be on Obama and under FRE I believe the best evidence rules will allow a demand for discovery of the entire HI vital record file and subpoenas of witnesses. The short-form COLB is only self-authenticating absent evidence that challenges it such as the HI Law 57 and the Blaine BC if its provenance can be established or if it can be discovered in the HI vital records files.
