Barack Obama, President of the United States of America, addresses the general debate of the sixty-seventh session of the General Assembly.

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- A California Attorney's bid to seek an emergency injunction blocking President Obama's name from being placed on Kansas' Presidential ballot is delayed.

A Shawnee County District Court Judge indefinitely put off a hearing on Orly Taitz's filing. The court says Judge Larry Hendrix is assessing her legal standing in the matter.

Kansas is one of several states is which Taitz has filed legal action claiming the President has engaged in identity fraud and is using a last name that isn't legally his.

Taitz appeared before the State Objections Board in September hoping to keep the issue alive after a Manhattan man withdrew a similar objection filed with the Board.

The delay in the hearing could ultimately render the issue moot, since it may stretch past the November 6th election.
