9th Circuit Hears Birther Appeal 3 days AFTER the president released his long form birth certificate

A three-panel court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit heard arguments today over whether the president is a US citizen despite the fact that President Obama released his detailed birth certificate last week.

This is the latest of several cases filed around the country by Orly Taitz, the attorney who started the birther movement and has found various plaintiffs to file lawsuits on behalf of around the nation.  Outside the courtroom today, Taitz told reporters she believes the birth record has been falsified. She said the document’s serial number was out of sequence, the typing wasn’t aligned, and it was printed on green paper instead of white paper like other Hawaiian birth records of that era and that she wants to see the document herself.

Good thing for the President perhaps that the news about the killing of Osama bin Laden has drowned out the building momentum of distractions such as this news story.

Taitz has been fined in the past by courts for bringing frivolous lawsuits and wasting court resources on cases that are not ripe and are moot.  Besides the fact the president has presented his birth certificate, he’s been office for nearly 4 years already and there is no relief that can be given to any of the plaintiffs, courts have ruled.
