A California lawyer filed a lawsuit in state court this week seeking to review President Obama's long-form birth certificate.
Obama released copies of the certificate on April 27 showing that he was born at what is now known as Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children on Aug. 4, 1961.
Orly Taitz, who is representing herself, said in her lawsuit filed on Wednesday that she questions Obama's legitimacy to be president.
The Attorney General's Office declined to comment, but wrote a letter addressed to Taitz and dated Monday saying she is not entitled to inspect the birth record.
