The demonization of President Obama takes many forms, from eschatological views that Obama is ending life as we know it to the “birther movement” that seeks to get around the constitutional process by which we elect presidents to undo the last election in the courts. The courts are having nothing of it and have once again rejected this ploy.
In honor of the World Cup, I use the soccer/football analogy of a red card to characterize rulings by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals regarding attorney Mario Apuzzo’s appeal in the case of Kerchner v. Obama which the court characterized as frivolous. Apparently beating a dead horse is against federal court rules.
- Judgment: Costs against Appellants
- Order to show cause: Assessment of damages for frivolous appeal
- Precedental Opinion: District Court Opinion affirmed
