A Kansas judge has indefinitely postponed a court hearing on an attorney's legal challenge to President Barack Obama's place on the state's Nov. 6 general election ballot.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Shawnee County District Judge Larry Hendricks will decide first whether California attorney and dentist Orly Taitz has the standing to file a lawsuit in Kansas.

Taitz promotes the discredited idea that President Obama is not eligible to serve as president.

Last month, she sued Secretary of State Kris Kobach and a state elections board he leads after the board kept the President on the ballot.

The board created a stir by taking time to authenticate information in a copy of President Obama's birth certificate from Hawaii available online.

But Kobach is asking Hendricks to dismiss Taitz's lawsuit.
