Activist: Illinois Judge Dismisses Canadian-Born Cruz 
Article II Presidential Ineligibility Lawsuit On Technicality

An Illinois judge dismissed a lawsuit today against Canadian-born Ted Cruz over a technicality.

The Canadian-born Cruz's political activist attorney is a piece of work.

Excerpts via Reuters:

An Illinois voter's lawsuit challenging Ted Cruz's eligibility to run for president of the United States because he was born in Canada was dismissed on a technicality on Tuesday by a state judge. 
Cook County Circuit Court Judge Maureen Ward Kirby in Chicago ruled that she did not have jurisdiction in the lawsuit - which had sought to have Cruz removed from the state's primary election ballot - because it had not been properly served on the state Board of Elections. 
She found that the plaintiff, Lawrence Joyce, had not properly filed his petition for judicial review.  
An attorney who represented Cruz in court, Sharee Langenstein, called the lawsuit "a misguided attempt to distract the voters away from the most qualified candidate we have for president, and that's Senator Ted Cruz." 
"There's no issue here," she said. "It's very clear that Senator Cruz is a natural-born citizen." 
Voters in New York, Alabama, Pennsylvania and Texas have also filed legal challenges to Cruz's eligibility. Some legal experts do not expect any court to invalidate a presidential candidate on the issue. [...] Reuters.
