WASHINGTON, Dec. 5 (UPI) -- The U.S. Supreme Court announced it would consider two cases Friday, but a lawsuit challenging President-elect Barack Obama's citizenship wasn't one of them.

The suit, originally sought to stay the Nov. 4 election, was filed on behalf of Leo Donofrio against New Jersey Secretary of State Nina Mitchell Wells, the Chicago Tribune reported Friday. The suit is part of an effort to upend Obama's election, and includes accusations that he either wasn't born a U.S. citizen or that he renounced his citizenship in Indonesia.

Justice Clarence Thomas listed the case for the justices' Friday conference during which the justices, among other things, decided what cases they will hear, The Washington Post reported.

A full list of the justices' orders, including which cases it will and won't hear, is expected to be released Monday.
