Motion to dismiss FL challenge was based on the same argument that got the case dismissed in the Superior court of GA and the Supreme court of GA. Judge asked for proposed judgment to be submitted to him for signature

Today Obama’s attorneys argued exactly the same point that got the case dismissed in the Superior court of GA and the Supreme court of GA.
Obama’s attorneys stated that until the declaration of nominee is signed by the convention, Obama is not the party nominee. They stated that Hillary Clinton won the FL primary in 2008, but was not the Democratic nominee in 2008 general election. They also argued that on the Republican side Romney won some states and Santorum won some states and Gingrich won some states, but until the certificate of candidate is not signed, either one of them is not the nominee.
In GA Supreme court this argument was the reason for dismissal of Farrar et al v Obama et al. Of course, I am sure some other excuse will be used after the convention. Judge Lewis asked for proposed ruling to be submitted to him for signature within 1 week.
