HONOLULU – A Hawaii appeals court has rejected a man’s request to “inspect and copy” President Barack Obama’s birth certificate, saying the plaintiff failed to state a valid claim to having access to the document.

Chief Judge Craig Nakamura wrote in an opinion issued Thursday that Robert V. Justice didn’t show there were “compelling circumstances” requiring the state Department of Health to show him the birth certificate. Two associate justices of the Hawaii Intermediate Court of Appeals concurred, one in a separate opinion.

Hawaii’s privacy laws bar the release of birth records unless the requester is someone with a tangible interest, such as a close family member.

Hawaii’s former health director has repeatedly said he’s verified Obama’s original records. Also, two local newspapers published notices of Obama’s birth in 1961.
