As I predicted the day it was filed, the lawsuit filed by Larry Klayman, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Mat Staver, on behalf of Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been dismissed before it ever received a hearing on the merits. A federal judge dismissed the case on jurisdictional grounds.
A US federal judge handed a victory to President Barack Obama, throwing out a lawsuit over controversial actions he took last month shielding millions of undocumented migrants from deportation.
The suit brought by Joseph Arpaio, the conservative sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, challenging the constitutionality of the president’s actions, was dismissed by Judge Beryl Howell.
“The plaintiff’s case raises important questions regarding the impact of illegal immigration on this nation, but the questions amount to generalized grievances which are not proper for the judiciary to address,” Howell’s ruling in the case read.
Now here comes the funny part. The Worldnetdaily headline reporting the story says, “Sheriff Joe’s amnesty war heads to Supreme Court.” Well no, actually, it doesn’t. Klayman is going to file a motion asking the Supreme Court to take up the case immediately, bypassing the appeals court.
A courtroom fight over Barack Obama’s amnesty plan for millions of illegal aliens already in the United States on Wednesday is heading to Chief Justice John Roberts and the rest of the U.S. Supreme Court after a district court dismissed the case for “lack of subject matter jurisdiction.”
Attorney Larry Klayman of FreedomWatch told WND he’ll try to leap-frog the usual appellate procedure because of the significance of the case and the immediacy of the problem.
“We will now ask the Supremes to bypass the D.C. Circuit and take this up now as the Obama Justice Department argued the full impact of the exec actions kick in in February 2015,” he said.
They will, of course, reject that motion. Then Klayman can file an appeal with the appeals court, which will uphold this ruling, then file cert with the Supreme Court, which will deny cert and the case will be dead. And the only one surprised by that will be the terminally clueless Klayman.
