Supreme Court Declines To Hear Obama Citizenship Case

Headline says it all.

Via The Trail:

The Supreme Court this morning unceremoniously declined to hear an emergency appeal from a man who claimed President-elect Barack Obama is not qualified for the presidency because he is not a "natural-born" citizen.

The court without comment declined to hear "Donofrio v. Wells," a suit that had attempted to keep Obama off the New Jersey ballot. Leo Donofrio of East Brunswick had claimed Obama had dual nationality at birth, because of his Kansas-born mother and his Kenyan-born father, who was a British subject at the time.

Read the rest and then AP has the story as well.

I seriously doubt the challenges will end here, but this one has hit a dead end. There only needed to be four of the justices that were willing to hear the case and the numbers were not there.
