None of the dozens so-called birthers can take President Obama to court to answer their claims that he wasn’t born in the U.S., a federal appeals court ruled Friday. The three-judge panel said the birthers didn’t have the right to sue President Obama because none of them have suffered an injury at his expense. Although 2008 Independent Party candidate Alan Keyes was among the plaintiffs, the court ruled that even former presidential candidates cannot force Obama to come to court. The judges also noted in their ruling that aside from the lack of standing by the plaintiffs, the political question of Obama’s legitimacy as president is beyond their control as a court.
