Attorney Orly Taitz posted an email from Hawaii's Fox News affiliate KHON-2 News reporter stating it would be prudent that Obama's (non-existent) birth certificate get a fair examination. The email posted below KHON-2's Andrew Pereira's bio.

Tough. A TV reporter doesn't get to tell HDOH to set aside state privacy laws. Only a judge can do that, and Pereira is not a judge. Just more whining from Dr. Orly.
However under Hawaii Revised Statutes 338-18(b)Point 9, a confidential birth record can be released to: "a person whose right to inspect or obtain a certified copy of the record is established by an order of a court of competent jurisdiction." http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/hrs2006/Vol06_Ch0321-0344/HRS0338/HRS_0338-0018.HTM
I have to admit to being utterly amazed that in the four and a half years since January 10, 2007, when Barack Obama first announced that he was a candidate for the presidency, no one has gone to a judge and asked a judge to issue a court order for release of the Obama birth certificate. Birthers have tried to get the birth certificate released via subpoenas but subpoenas are not court orders. A judge issues a court order.
What is a court order? "A court order is a legal document or proclamation in which a court orders a person to perform a specific act, prohibits him from performing an act, sets a court date, or legally establishes something. For example, a court order may require an individual to pay a specific amount of money to another party. A court order may also prohibit a person from doing something, such as walking across another party's property. Some court orders are used to set a date specifying when parties involved in a case are expected to appear in court. Other court orders may establish the relationship between parties in a case.
In most cases, court orders are given in writing and signed by a judge. In some places, however, only a judge's signature isn't enough; an order also may have to be notarized to make it official. There are even cases in which a court order is given orally by the judge in open court. In such a case, the order may be recorded in the court's transcripts but not given to the parties in writing."
Depending on the type of case, a person may suffer penalties for failing to follow the instructions in a court order. For example, a person may lose a case by default if he fails to show up in court at the date and time specified in a court order. If a defendant fails to appear for his trial, he may be arrested and put in jail.
Orly has asked for a Judge to issue a court order allowing her to view the BC. She asked a Judge in Hawaii to order the DoH to allow her into the records vault to view Obama's BC. Orly also asked a Judge to find Fuddy in contempt of court and to jail Fuddy because Fuddy didn't follow a "court signed subpoena" (meaning that the court clerk signed off on the subpoena, not that the subpoena was a "court order" by a Judge as Orly told her followers). Fuddy was under no obligation to follow Orly's subpoena since a Judge had NOT signed off on it. As with all Orly attempts, Orly failed.
