In 2009, the birthers convened a number of fake grand juries, which dutifully issued indictments or "presentments". Then they tried to "serve" the indictments/presentments on various courts, law enforcement agencies, legislators and other authority figures. The effort came to naught.

The first Fake Grand Jury was convened by Carl Swensson of Stockbridge, Georgia on March 28, 2009. He gathered 25 volunteers in his computer/electronics shop and proceeded to take "sworn testimony". Orly Taitz appeared by telephone, leading the affair. Shockingly, the 25 people who volunteered to indict President Obama did exactly that, albeit without any sort of legal authority whatever.
