About Constitutional Attorney Van Irion | Liberty Legal Foundation, 17 May 2014 [cached]
About Constitutional Attorney Van Irion
Constitutional lawyer, Constitutional attorney Van Irion is the lead counsel and founder of Liberty Legal Foundation. Van is a Constitutional attorney, admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court. He is also a Patent attorney, adjunct Law Professor at the University of Tennessee, former medical researcher, published scientist, and former Republican candidate for Congress for TN03. Van was endorsed by Congressman Ron Paul in his Congressional campaign along with former Reagan White House staff and speech writers.
Unlike most attorneys, Van refuses to begin legal arguments with the presumption that all court precedent is correct. Van always starts his legal analysis with the Constitution. Van's vision for Liberty Legal is based upon the idea that a handful of historic cases have served to destroy our country by undermining the intent of the Constitution. In order to take our country back to a Constitutional Republic, Van seeks to reverse the flawed precedent that expanded the authority of the Federal government and diminished the liberties of the States and the People.

In their attempt to serve papers ..., 2 June 2012 [cached]
In their attempt to serve papers on Democratic state organizations in Tennessee that vouched for Barack Obama's legal ability to hold the office of US President, Van Irions and the LLF stumbled across a Democratic Party shell organization. The group calls itself the National Democratic Party USA.
In their motion to sanction Irions, the DNC accuses the LLF lawyer of conspiring with the NDPUSA to rig a quick and easy verdict against a Democratic group. As Van Irions explains, the LLF wasn't able to locate anyone associated with the group to serve papers on. Surely if the LLF set up a sham Democratic Party organization to gain an easy win, they would have won. Instead, the case never went forward because nobody could be found.
Van Irions and the LLF could only speculate who set up the NDPUSA. "The truth is that we still don't know who set up the NDPUSA, Irions said, "It could be a scam perpetrated by the Tennessee Republicans, or the Tennessee Democrats, or someone else completely.
LLF attorney Van Irions spared no words in responding to the motion. "Considering the poor job our public schools have done teaching about the Constitution, I wouldn't be surprised to hear this argument coming from a member of the media," Irions said, "But to have this argument actually filed in federal court, by an attorney that supposedly understands constitutional law, is surprising and sad."
Another issue in the legal battle in Arizona is the Democratic Party's right to represent on Barack Obama's candidate filings that he is eligible to serve as President. Admittedly, no Party officials or state government has ever verified Barack Obama's eligibility to hold the office of President. And the DNC is arguing that preventing them from printing the words confirming Obama's eligibility would be a violation of their First Amendment right to freedom of speech.
Van Irions, the LLF lead attorney counters, "We responded that the First Amendment does not grant the Democratic Party a right to commit fraud."
