Re: Fwd: Snopes lied: Must read: regarding Obama/Kagan
NONE of the cases listed have ANYTHING to do with Obamas birth
certificate or his status as a "natural born citizenship".

Kagan case: 'Real Truth About Obama'
Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly described a
series of cases for which Elena Kagan represented the government as
eligibility cases. Those cases, in fact, were a series of unrelated disputes
pending before the Supreme Court and the references have been removed from
Lastly, the Solicitor General does NOT determine WHAT cases the Supreme
Court hears, they determine the cases in which Supreme Court review will be
sought by the government and the positions the government will take before
The task of the Office of the Solicitor General is to supervise and conduct
government litigation in the United States Supreme Court. Virtually all such
litigation is channeled through the Office of the Solicitor General and is
actively conducted by the Office. The United States is involved in
approximately two-thirds of all the cases the U.S. Supreme Court decides on
the merits each year.
The Solicitor General determines the cases in which Supreme Court review
will be sought by the government and the positions the government will take
before the Court. The Office's staff attorneys, Deputy Solicitors General
and Assistants to the Solicitor General, participate in preparing the
petitions, briefs, and other papers filed by the government in the Supreme
Court. The Solicitor General conducts the oral arguments before the Supreme
Court. Those cases not argued by the Solicitor General personally are
assigned either to an Assistant to the Solicitor General or to another
government attorney. The vast majority of government cases are argued by the
Solicitor General or one of the office attorneys.
Another responsibility of the Office is to review all cases decided
adversely to the government in the lower courts to determine whether they
should be appealed and, if so, what position should be taken. Moreover, the
Solicitor General determines whether the government will participate as an
amicus curiae, or intervene, in cases in any appellate court.
It looks like Snopes got it RIGHT.
Yet still this BS is floating around because people do NOT bother to VERIFY
& RESEARCH things.
