NASHVILLE A federal judge who dismissed in June a lawsuit that sought to have President Barack Obama's name removed from the ballot in Tennessee has now imposed sanctions on Knoxville lawyer Van Irion for bringing a "frivolous" claim to court.
"We are happy with the result and hope this brings an end to the ongoing litigation over President Obama's qualifications," said Gerard Stranch, an attorney for the Tennessee Democratic Party, in a news release.
The lawsuit, brought by Irion on behalf of Liberty Legal Foundation and three individuals, contended that the president is not a "natural-born citizen" of the United States and thus unqualified to serve in accordance with requirements of the United States Constitution.
U.S. District Court Judge S. Thomas Anderson of Memphis dismissed the lawsuit in June and last week partially granted a motion by Democrats who opposed it seeking sanctions against those who filed it.

frivolous only used when it pertains to finding out the truth.
I was born in Knoxville. It used to be a city of hard-working, freedom-loving, God-fearing Americans. I guess now days not so much.
What can be said of a judiciary that will allow a suit for damages over hot coffee, but calls matters concerning the Constitution frivolous?
The Judicial system has been in the bag for Obama since he was discovered lurking in Chicago.
They have obfuscated every charge that has come against him,found some techinical reason or other to ignore the charges or in some cases where a Judge decided to hear a case, somehow frightened them off.
Therehas never been a fair and open trial on Obama’s elegibility.
U.S. District Court Judge S. Thomas Anderson of Memphis Made the decision. He is apparently not from Knoxville
It seems the plaintiff was given reason for high hopes going in. Curious what the back story may be
fwiw - judge is a GHW Bush appointee
Judge’s ruling on the original case. Looks like the decision turned on lack of standing.
people have no faith in the legal system
They’re claiming that no damage has been done because nobody has filed nominaton papers for Obama yet.
But as soon as they do, the state AG needs to nail the a$$es of both the DNC and the TN Democratic Party, for perjury and fraud.
Why? Because Alvin Onaka has confirmed that the HI BC for Obama is not legally valid. See http://butterdezillion.wordpress.com/2012/09/02/onaka-confirms-obamas-bc-is-non-valid/ . The legal presumption now has to be that Obama has no legally-established birth facts and therefore NOBODY can lawfully swear that he is eligible. We can’t even know if he’s old enough to qualify.
Anybody who passes Obama along in the process needs to sit in jail, because they will have to commit crimes to do so.
From here on out the civil lawsuits need to be replaced by criminal trials. Starting with Bob Bauer, if he counsels anybody in the DNC to sign a perjurious Certification of Nomination for Barack Obama.
Yeah: So was Justice Roberts who sold us out on Obamacare.
Just when the hell are we going to get off our collective asses and start IMPEACHING THESE LEFTOID JUDGES????
No STANDING?? Hell, every single CITIZEN of the country has standing!
doesn’t this now mean they can defend themselves against the aserted frivolity?
A full, vigorous defense...?
We are finding out that citizens have no standing in these courts supposedly meant to protect us. What evil we have wrought.
Wasn’t this the pro that was laughing at efforts by the dentist Orly to take on the eligibility challenge of Obama? What happened Van?
What amazes me is that these rulings are handed down from on-high, yet these judges are still able to walk the streets as though they are normal people and deserving of the civility the very society they are destroying provides to them...
In earlier times in our history they would have needed to hide or flee, or both.
You have a good point. They enjoy the respect of the citizenry who have no clue about their treason. “America, the clueless” can it be the new song?
no standing in courts..that happens when all people vote for is free stuff..welfare mentality.
