The Supreme Court has opted not to hear another challenge to Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as president because of his citizenship.
Cort Wrotnowski of Greenwich, Conn. argued that Obama had dual nationality at birth — his mother was American, his Kenyan father was a British subject — so he cannot possibly be a “natural born citizen,” and therefore cannot meet the requirement for becoming president.
He wanted the high court to halt presidential electors from meeting to formally elect Obama as president, but his appeal was denied Monday without comment.
At least two other appeals over Obama’s citizenship remain at the court. Philip J. Berg of Lafayette Hill, Pa. argues that Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii as Obama says and Hawaii officials have confirmed.
Federal courts in Pennsylvania have dismissed Berg’s lawsuit. Federal courts in Ohio and the state of Washington have rejected similar lawsuits.
