Supreme Court Silent On First Obama Citizenship Case

No word from the SCOTUS in regard to the Donofrio case on the Obama/British citizenship question as grounds for ineligibility for POTUS. Below is today's only announcement from the Supreme Court of two cases that were accepted:

Today’s Orders 12.5.08 Friday, December 5th, 2008 1:23 pm
Today’s orders list is available
here. The Court granted certiorari in two cases — al-Marri v. Pucciarelli (08-368) and Gross v. FBL Financial Services, Inc. (08-441) — filings for which are available after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
So no word either way on whether the court will hear the Donofrio case or refuse to hear it. Monday 12-8-08 will be the second SCOTUS challenge, by the We The People Foundation, followed by a scheduled press conference:
"Mr. Obama's Eligibility to be Aired Monday at the National Press Club QUEENSBURY, N.Y., Dec 04, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire via COMTEX/ -- On Monday, December 8, 2008, at 1:30 pm, the We The People Foundation will conduct a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington D.C.
Prior to the start of the conference, at 10 am, the Supreme Court of the United States is expected to announce whether it will consider applications from these attorneys who have asked the Court to delay the proceedings of the Electoral College pending a determination of the underlying constitutional question - the meaning of the "natural born citizen" clause of Article II of the Constitution and its application to Mr. Obama."
It seems likely that an announcement either way on the the Donofrio case may have been postponed for this reason. Next week should be eventful. fyi
