This is the first Obama citizenship case which was decided by the US S. Court, making it the most newsworthy, since the others are in the lower courts, and about 2 are still pending. Please help me in the review of this landmark Obama issue. Thanks.--Florentino Floro (talk) 12:55, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Review[edit]

Omissions in story.[edit]

This was posted on Tuesday. The supreme court posted an official docket online on Monday saying the Cort Wrotnowski case was submitted by Justice Scalia to conference for Friday, December 12. Why is this critical information left out? The title should read US Supreme Court dismisses one case, but sends another to conference, on Obama's citizenship.

  • Both cases were sent for conference, but the Denofrio case was not granted cert at its conference on Dec. 5th. The second case wont go before conference until this Friday, Dec. 12th. 208.15.90.2 21:06, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

I edited this article to include the update:The Washington Times[edit]

Since, it is just 2 hours that we have a reliable source aside from the 2 S.C. Docket html, I decided to add this:

As of December 9, we have no sources on whether Berg's application had been considered by the US S. Court.
