Obama's eligibility issue goes to trial (2nd post)

See below for first post which also has links and summary of what happened in court. Here is another eyewitness report:
The expedited trial has been set for Jan. 26, 2010, just 4 1/2 months from now!

I and many other concerned veterans and citizens attended the hearing today in Federal Court in Santa Ana in the lawsuit against Barack Obama to determine his eligibility to be President and Commander in Chief. About 150 people showed up, almost all in support of the lawsuit to demand that Obama release his birth certificate and other records that he has hidden from the American people.

Judge David Carter refused to hear Obama’s request for dismissal today, instead setting a hearing date for Oct. 5, since Obama’s attorneys had just filed the motion on Friday. He indicated there was almost no chance that this case would be dismissed. Obama is arguing this lawsuit was filed in the wrong court if you can believe that. I guess Obama would prefer a “kangaroo court” instead of a Federal court! Assuming Judge Carter denies Obama’s motion for dismissal, he will likely then order expedited discovery which will force Obama to release his birth certificate in a timely manner (if he has one).

The judge, who is a former U.S. Marine, repeated several times that this is a very serious case which must be resolved quickly so that the troops know that their Commander in Chief is eligible to hold that position and issue lawful orders to our military in this time of war. He basically said Obama must prove his eligibility to the court! He said Americans deserve to know the truth about their President!

The two U.S. Attorneys representing Barack Obama tried everything they could to sway the judge that this case was frivolous, but Carter would have none of it and cut them off several times. Obama’s attorneys left the courtroom after about the 90 minute hearing looking defeated and nervous.

Great day in America for the U.S. Constitution!!! The truth about Barack Obama’s eligibility will be known fairly soon - Judge Carter practically guaranteed it!

Video from the press conference after the hearing coming soon. Congratulations to plaintiffs attorney Dr. Orly Taitz! She did a great job and won some huge victories today. She was fearless!

I gotta say...I think this is silly. But a part of me is glad the case didn't get dismissed. Assuming I'm right and the birthers don't have a leg to stand on when it comes down to it, then at least a court will have ruled on it and people can stop talking about it.

I agree Andrew, that a fair ruling after thorough and real exploration of the facts will go a long way. As the Judge had said, he wants this heard, because if Obama is legitimate it is not fair to him to dog his tenure with false allegations. And if Obama is not legitimate, then it is not fair tot he American people to subvert the Constitution any longer that necessary. Either way, I hope the truth comes out, whatever it is. (Though people who know me, know I believe he is not legitimate)

I've read some first-hand accounts and the Order. Do you know where this assertion comes from? "He indicated there was almost no chance that this case would be dismissed." I can't seem to back it up. Thanks.

Hey, sorry, Elizabeth, I didn't read through to the end of the post because I was e'd the full text - without Jeff's name. I just wrote to him. Thanks, Clyde

Hi Clyde,

In addition to Jeff saying that there was virtually no chance this would go to trial, I also read that statement inside a quote that was in a newspaper article. I do not remember which news article (and it was not a blog entry but newspaper, perhaps OC Weekly or OC Register) that the Judge was quoted as saying something to the effect that unless the defense brought strongly compelling information on Oct 5, then he is inclined to let this continue t trial. That was the word, "inclined".
