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)."

There are always cases pending against a President, it shouldn't stop the Justices from meeting with him.
The Supreme Court justices have a good idea of what constitutes inappropriate conversations regarding pending cases, and I think, if solely as a matter of pride, that they would adhere to those rules.

Now you know why he picked that idiot Biden as his VP. Obama the lesser of two evils."If every poor man is to come here and start requesting money for all his children, the applicants will never be satisfied and the nation's finances will collapse." Emperor Tiberius: Tacitus:Annals
