This one looks like it might move the ball forward:
Judge Lewis is asking the White House for a definition rather than a piece of physical evidence. Every judge, and probably every American, already heard the definition on the other side. If Hussein’s lawyers respond it will be a big step toward moving from a state court to a federal court; ultimately ending with the SCOTUS ruling definitively one way or the other. Apparently, Minor v. Happersett is unclear:A hearing has been scheduled in a Florida court to allow attorneys representing the White House to support their claim that the term “natural born citizen” in the U.S. Constitution means something other than the offspring of two American citizens.
Judge Terry Lewis in Leon County has set a hearing for June 18 to consider arguments from both sides of a challenge to Obama’s name on the 2012 state election ballot.
And this:Klayman had cited the U.S. Supreme Court case Minor v. Happersett from 1875.
Lewis ordered further briefing on the issue before the hearing.
The definition of the term is critical. Such a step has not been reached in any of the more than 100 legal cases that have been brought over Obama’s eligibility since before his election in 2008.
Bush v. Gore judge: Your evidence, Mr. Obama?The Minor v. Happersett ruling defines “natural born citizen” as the offspring of two U.S. citizens.
But since the term is not defined in the Constitution, there are many who equate being a “citizen” or a “native-born citizen” with being a “natural born citizen.”
Schedules hearing on what precedent White House has on 'natural born citizen'

Frankly, I see no reason for Hussein to respond. Why should he? unless he recently discovered a magical argument that makes his definition of natural born citizen a sure winner.
Mark June 18 on your calendar.
