TOPEKA (AP) – A Kansas judge has indefinitely postponed a court hearing on an attorney’s legal challenge to President Barack Obama’s place on the state’s Nov. 6 general election ballot.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Shawnee County District Judge Larry Hendricks will decide first whether California attorney and dentist Orly Taitz has the standing to file a lawsuit in Kansas.
Taitz promotes the discredited idea that Obama is not eligible to serve as president.
Last month, she sued Secretary of State Kris Kobach and a state elections board he leads after the board kept Obama on the ballot.
The board created a stir by taking time to authenticate information in a copy of Obama’s birth certificate from Hawaii available online.
But Kobach is asking Hendricks to dismiss Taitz’s lawsuit.
