According to a new article at WorldNetDaily, attorney Larry Klayman says that he will likely appeal his recent 7-2 loss before the all-Republican Supreme Court of Alabama to the United States Supreme Court. Klayman wrote:
Over the last five years, many court challenges have been filed concerning Obama’s eligibility. Indeed, I have filed three in Florida and one in Alabama. In every instance, and I am not just referencing the cases that I filed, these court challenges have been dismissed. (They are currently on appeal.) But what is more troubling than the dismissals is that the judges presiding over these cases have generally refused to even explain the reasons for their dismissals. Apparently, they are so afraid of taking on this issue that they don’t want to go on record for their actions. That is because these dismissals are not legally justified.
That is not true; for example, the Farrar v. Obama case in Georgia was not dismissed, but rather had a hearing with witnesses. While I have not reviewed every case, a great many have detailed explanations of why they were dismissed. I remember one of the first cases, Berg v. Obama et al., accompanied by a lengthy and highly-educational opinion by judge Surrick and I have listed almost a dozen cases where judges addressed the merits of to the argument that US Presidents most have citizen parents.
It is ironic that Klayman holds up for praise Judge Royce C. Lamberth, saying:
Few other judges in this nation have the courage of Chief Justice Moore. The Honorable Royce C. Lamberth, who held the Clintons to account in the late ’90s and early 2000s and ruled that Bill Clinton had committed a crime1….
Lamberth dismissed several birther cases (and explained why!):
The imposter in the White House must be held accountable, and he should indeed be told to get up off his knees and come out with his hands up.
Klayman seems to be confusing civil and criminal cases.
