Gregory Hollister (and lawyer Philip J. Berg) is suing President Obama and Vice-President Biden to force them to settle their dispute over which one of them is really president. The action is called an “interpleader” suit, typically used by insurance companies to force the issue of who they should pay a policy to by bringing a suit against the claimants so that the court decides the issue.
The suit is before the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.
Hollister/Berg alleges that retired military officer Hollister is subject to recall and he needs to know who he should pay allegiance to as Commander in Chief, Obama or Biden.
Obama and Biden have to today filed their response.
The response argues, of course, that the suit should be dismissed on a number of grounds which the interested reader can see in the response. It may be that Obama’s lawyers were trying to entertain the court with some of the cases they cited.
Hollister v. Soetoro et al. doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of being heard.
Well almost right. The motions in the case were denied except plaintiffs’ council’s request to be admitted before the court for that one case in DC. Berg and Joyce were invited to have their credentials and their evidence examined. I’m still betting that it’ll never happen.
