SCOTUS To Discuss Obama Birth Certificate Case on January 9

It’s Philip Berg’s case and it is a meeting to discuss whether to grant certiorari. From World Net Daily.

One of the original legal challenges to President-elect Barack Obama’s eligibility for office to reach the U.S. Supreme Court now has been scheduled for a conference, a meeting at which the justices discuss its merits and whether to step into the fray.

Online schedules posted by the court show the case brought by attorney Philip J. Berg is set for a conference Jan. 9.

The case is one among several that already have reached the U.S. Supreme Court and address the issue of Obama’s eligibility to occupy the Oval Office under the U.S. Constitution’s requirement that presidents be “natural born” citizens.

Berg has submitted several requests for injunctions, seeking the court’s order to stay proceedings in the electoral process until his case is heard, but the request have been rejected.

His original claim, however, remains on track to be heard.

It only takes 4 Justices to vote to accept the case for argument. Hmmm, I wonder if I can think of 4 conservative Justices who might do something like that . . .
