Full Version: Senator Obama sued in federal court
America's Debate > In the News > Election 2008
There are numerous links about this action so rather than referring you to one in particular I ask that you use your search engine on the words Philip Berg obama

Questions for debate:

Will this action make national news and negatively affect Senator Obama's chances for the presidency?

Will the fact that Mr. Philip Berg is a Hillary supporter cause problems at the Democratic National Convention?
Zack, if you think this worthless bit of intenet crap is important enough to bring up for debate, then don't half-step and expect others to provide the background information for you.

From the ad.gif Survival Guide:

Cite your sources, and be prepared to back-up your argument. Don't make us ask for your sources after making a bold statement. Providing sources early and often solidifies your argument, and solid arguments help establish credibility.

Barring the inclusion of the supporting information, there's no good reason for this thread to exist.

The suggestion to go look for the information ourselves does not stimulate genuine debate.
According to this link a jury trial has been requested. And according to this link
A prominent Philadelphia attorney and Hillary Clinton supporter filed suit this afternoon in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission. The action seeks an injunction preventing the senator from continuing his candidacy and a court order enjoining the DNC from nominating him next week, all on grounds that Sen. Obama is constitutionally ineligible to run for and hold the office of President of the United States. it would appear that the complainant is a rather creditable member of society.

Considering a jury trial has been requested on the multiple count complaint I would think it would be within the Democratic rules that someone at the convention could question Senator Obama's nomination verses the pending litigation?

I would think, if nothing else the existence of this case could cause Obama supporters to make outbursts at the convention further dividing the party support for the nominee?
