Just as everyone thought the Obama Citizen controversy was over in the Courts, another case has popped up. Even though I don’t share his concern, thanks to commentor ‘Ted‘ for bringing the latest case to my attention.

Wrotnowski v. Bysiewicz is a motion for injunction filed by Cort Wrotnowski against Susan Bysiewicz, Secretary of State of Connecticut to halt the electoral college to hear a complaint against Barack Obama’s claim of citizenship. Unlike some of the other claims before the Court, this case focuses primarily on the President-elect’s father’s nationality. You can read the petition here.

According to the docket sheet (here), Justice Scalia referred the case to the Court as a whole today and it will be discussed at the December 12 conference. There is very, very little doubt that the Court will dismiss the case as it has the last two citizenship challenges to come before it.
