Vogt filed at Supreme Court?

According to Birther Report, a document reproduced the article there is described as “Filed at the U.S. Supreme Court on March 20, 2014.” If that were the case, then one would expect the petition to have appeared on the Supreme Court docket on March 21, but it’s not there. The case is styled: “Douglas Vogt vs. United States District Court, Western District of Washington.

The document presented at BR is not, it appears, the actual petition for a writ of certiorari, but a separate motion to expedite and file under seal. According to the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press study, an increasing number of sealed filings are appearing at the Supreme Court, but one must question the necessity of such a filing in this case. Naming Vogt’s fantasy forger is immaterial to his petition, as is his incompetent crank forensic analysis.

It all seems a publicity stunt to me.
