Phil Berg was the first birther to file a lawsuit against President Obama. He was also a "9/11 Truther". Phil is a dirtbag and a grifter who makes his living by peddling sleaze and sensationalism instead of talent as a legal representative. He has been sanctioned by at least one court in the amount of $10,000, and is currently facing charges before the Pennsylvania State Bar for allegedly abandoning a client. He employs a convicted felon as his paralegal and primary researcher.

At one point, Phil had three pending cases against President Obama: Berg v. Obama, Hollister v. Soetoro, and Berg v. Obama (False Claims Act case).
