Yep

and there are a lot of other cases that say the same, or similar things...

I have a good friend, a very intelligent guy who is not a lawyer. He has read all the birther books and has the law all wrong. Like a lot of people here, he is convinced that the law says something it doesn't and it becomes impossible to talk to him about the subject without just resigning one's self to hearing a whole lot of nonsense.
