In a tersely worded order dated October 4, 2009, Judge David O. Carter denied Orly Taitz’s motion to reconsider his dismissal of the Barnett v. Obama lawsuit. Judge Carter said, in essence, that the motion to reconsider was mostly the same old stuff she presented before.
After reviewing the moving and opposing papers, the Court finds no factual, legal, or bias grounds upon which to grant the motion for reconsideration. Counsel largely repeats the same arguments made in her briefing and oral argument on the Motion to Dismiss, which is prohibited. To the extent that she does present new argument, it is without merit and does not meet the standard for reconsideration. The Court’s ruling that it lacks jurisdiction, and that Plaintiffs have failed to state a claim on their remaining causes of action, stands.
