Night of the Undead Lawsuits

To be perfectly honest, this article is just an excuse to try out the PULP-O-MIZER. Here’s my first essay:

Birther lawsuits have a way of coming back in new forms, even when their underlying legal theories have been rejected by the courts. The latest edition of the Birther Scorecard counts no less than 190 losses for the birthers (and of course no wins). The zombies still at large are1:

  • Grinols v. Electoral College (US District Court for the Eastern District of California)
  • Noonan v. Bowen (US Supreme Court)
  • Schneller v. Corbett (PA State Appeals court)
  • Sibley v. DC Bd. of Elections (US Supreme Court
  • Sibley v. Alexander (DC Circuit Court)
  • Archibald v. Department of Justice (DC District Court)
  • Begay v. Obama (AZ District Court)
  • Farrar et al. v. Obama, Sec’y of State (Georgia Supreme Court)
  • Lamb v. Obama (Alaska Superior Court)
  • Reade v. Galvin (1st Circuit Court of Appeals)
  • Strunk v. NY Board of Elections (NY appeals court)
  • Sunahara v. Hawaii Dept. of Health (Hawaii Circuit court)
  • Taitz v. Democrat Party of Mississippi (Mississippi District Court)
  • Voeltz v. Obama (Florida Appeals Court)
  • Voeltz v. Obama (Leon County, Florida Circuit Court)
  • Wolf v. Fuddy (Hawaii Circuit court)

1The number of cases pending on the Birther Scorecard is 8, reflecting the number of cases active at in the court of original jurisdiction, and not including attempts to overturn those decisions through appeals. My list includes appeals.

    I think Judd v. Obama 2, 12-57177, is still alive and awaiting the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Since Judge Carter dismissed it before the defendants entered an appearance, I suppose she is up against the Empty Chair for this one.

    They’ve beaten the dead horse to the point that there is nothing left, but Elmer’s glue!

    Tracy Fair says that her appeal of Fair v Obama in Carroll County, Maryland will be heard in September. She posts on amazon.com in the Corsi’s Where’s the birth certificate discussion forums.

    Just to clarify, Sibley v. DC Board of Elections was denied by SCOTUS on January 4, so it is dead.

    No. 12-467
    Title:
    Montgomery Blair Sibley, Petitioner
    v.
    District of Columbia Board of Elections and Ethics
    Docketed: October 15, 2012
    Lower Ct: District of Columbia Court of Appeals
    Case Nos.: (12-AA-1498)
    Decision Date: September 18, 2012
    Rehearing Denied: October 2, 2012

    ~~~Date~~~ ~~~~~~~Proceedings and Orders~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Oct 12 2012 Petition for a writ of certiorari filed. (Response due November 14, 2012)
    Oct 12 2012 Motion to expedite consideration of the petition for a writ of certiorari filed by petitioner.
    Oct 17 2012 Motion DISTRIBUTED for Conference of November 2, 2012.
    Nov 5 2012 Motion to expedite consideration filed by petitioner DENIED.
    Nov 14 2012 Waiver of right of respondent District of Columbia Board of Elections and Ethics to respond filed.
    Nov 28 2012 DISTRIBUTED for Conference of January 4, 2013.
    Jan 7 2013 Petition DENIED.

    However, Sibley v. Obama is still alive, although on life support. It has been dead filed, and we will have confirmation of the denial in two weeks.

    No. 12-736
    Title:
    Montgomery Blair Sibley, Petitioner
    v.
    Barak H. Obama, President of the United States, et al.

    H/T to Doc for this article – both for introducing all of us to the PULP-O-MIZER (awesome) and for an update on the status of those lingering undead Birther court cases…

    So yeah, as the news in Birtherdom starts dissipating, keep the Pulp-O-Mized updates coming! Worth the blog space for the imagery alone… ;)
