BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- A judge is dismissing the latest lawsuit seeking to keep President Barack Obama off the Alabama ballot this year.
Jefferson County Circuit Judge Helen Shores Lee threw out the suit by Crenshaw County resident Harold Sorensen during a hearing in Birmingham on Tuesday, saying state courts have no jurisdiction in the matter.
Sorensen claims Obama isn't eligible to serve as president because he doesn't meet citizenship requirements. He sued last week in Jefferson County.
Lee previously threw out a similar lawsuit filed by another man who was challenging Obama's place of birth. The Birmingham News reports that Sorensen filed suit challenging the citizenship of then-Republican presidential nominee John McCain in 2009.
