The deadline for Obama and the DNC to respond to the lawsuit filed and served from Philip J Berg is Wednesday, September 24, 2008. Will Obama ask for the lawsuit to be dismissed? If not, will he ask for a continuance?
Jeff Schreiber, a law student, legal writer and blog owner has provided some thoughts on what may occur. Here are some exerpts:
“Answers from defendant Sen. Barack Obama and defendant Democratic National Committee to the original complaint filed on August 21st by attorney and former Deputy Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Philip Berg are due on Wednesday, September 24.
Both sides have a number of options available at this point in time, not the least of which is the expected motion to dismiss for lack of standing which will inevitably be filed by Obama or the DNC by the deadline. Judge R. Barclay Surrick will be hard-pressed to deny such a motion, but the most interesting part may not be whether he grants it or denys it but rather the language surrounding such a decision.”
“As for possible strategy with regard to action or inaction on the part of Obama and the DNC come Wednesday, Berg has mentioned some things to me off the record, and I must respect that.”
