President's meeting with judges questioned
A lawyer working on a case before the U.S. Supreme Court that challenges the eligibility of President Obama is raising concerns over a meeting between the defendant in the case and the judges who are expected to review it.
The case is one of many brought before U.S. courts that allege Obama doesn't meet the "natural born" requirement of the U.S. Constitution for the president. It's one of about half a dozen that have reached the U.S. Supreme Court, which already has declined to grant hearings to several cases.
Orly Taitz, whose case is scheduled to be heard tomorrow in a conference among justices – a private meeting at which they review cases and decide whether they should hold a hearing – confirmed on her website today that a supplemental brief in her arguments had been distributed.
But the website also reported she "had to explain … many of us citizens are also concerned about the eight out of nine justices meeting privately with Mr. Obama (while the cases are pending)."
