Another one bites the dust
The sun rose today, birds mobbed the feeder, and another birther lawsuit was dismissed. Write-in presidential candidate Montgomery Blair Sibley filed suit in DC District Court attempting to oust Barack Obama from office with a quo warranto lawsuit, bar him from the ballot, and make a grand jury presentation, also asserted an unrelated Bivens claim. For more information on the history of the case, see my articles on Sibley.
The court, disinterested in going too far into the nuttiness of the case cited precedent:
The court [grants] defendants’ motion to dismiss with respect to each of the plaintiff’s myriad unmeritorious claims. As Chief Judge Lambert recently stated with respect to a similar suit, ‘[t]his Court is not willing to go tilting at windmills. Taitz v. Obama, 707 F. Supp. 2d 1, 3 (2011).
I find it interesting that nowadays courts are citing decisions in other birther cases, where as previously they cited other decisions. In this instance, besides the cute remark above, we see substantive citations from Kerchner v. Obama, Drake v. Obama, Berg v. Obama, and Barnett v. Obama.
