Keyes filed the suit, known as Drake v. Obama, 09-56827, Jan. 20, 2009—Obama’s inauguration. Judge Harry Pregerson affirmed U.S. District Judge David Carter’s decision to dismiss the case. That affirmation was highlighted in an unanimous opinion, including comments from fellow Judges Raymond Fisher and Marsha Berzon.
