Taitz annoys judge: sanctions threatened

It would be funny if it weren’t so pathetic.

Pop quiz: Which federal agency is most concerned about and most diligent in enforcing the privacy of social-security numbers?

DING! Correct, the Social Security Administration.

And which federal agency is it unwise to sue with court filings containing plain text, unedited, personally identifying social security numbers? Nevertheless, our intrepid dental surgeon and sometimes attorney Orly Taitz in her lawsuit against the Social Security Administration, Tatiz v Astrue, did exactly that; the Social Security Administration noticed and objected; and the court vacated the filings telling Taitz to start over. That was June 2.

Perhaps Taitz fell asleep reading the page on the Fed. R. Civ. P. 5.2 (a)(1), about how to handle social-security numbers, at the Howard Taft online law school web site. No problem, the court reminded her and Taitz refiled her motion with the social-security numbers redacted (correctly showing only the last 4 numbers). That was June 14.

June 15 Taitz filed more motions with social-security numbers improperly redacted. The judge hinted that sanctions would have been imposed had the defendants asked for them and warned that the Court might impose sanctions on its own if it happened again. A clearly displeased judge said: “…wasting the Court’s time is not the way for  plaintiff to have any hope of prevailing in this case.”

Wow! That’ll teach her! (not) After some wrangling over who filed what Taitz, in the words of the court, made a “somewhat hysterical claim in her motion for consideration that there may be ‘an employee in this court, who is intentionally sabotaging’ her…” What followed on July 22 was another Taitz attempt to file yet another motion with improperly redacted social-security numbers. The court wrote:

Plaintiff is either toying with the court or displaying her own stupidity.

While no monetary sanctions were imposed in the July 25 order from Judge Royce C. Lamberth, the Court’s order is clearly a public humiliation.

    But, alas, he did nothing to Taitz. I’m actually amazed at the patience the court has shown in this case – as he points out this is the third or fourth time she’s done this – and since she’s done it correctly in the past it’s either immense stupidity or she’s doing it deliberately…yet the court continues to let her refile motion after motion.

    She won’t learn until sanctioned, and to be honest, not even then.

    Judge Royce Lambert appears to dumb and not very understanding.
    Judge Lambert is baffled by Orly’s behavior and can’t seem to understand it. However, Judge Lambert should have easily concluded that based her previous motions, Orly Taitz seems to have trouble assimilating the English language. It would appear that this latest act by Orly demonstrates that she having trouble comprehending the English language. The court could offer to allow Orly language accommodations by providing the court rules and motions in her native language. So far, Judge Lambert has made no attempt at this accommodation.

    Orly Taitz passed the California Bar Exam, IN ENGLISH.

    Judge Lamberth said in writing to Orly a year ago while dismissing her quo warranto claim against the President: “This is one of several such suits filed by Ms. Taitz in her quixotic attempt to prove that the President is not a “natural born citizen,” as is required by the Constitution. This Court is not willing to go tilting at windmills with her.

    I agree. All Orly court proceedings should be in Russian.
    Then we can have honest headlines such as “Foreign Russian woman attempts to overthrow US constitution. Calls President a fraud.”

    That should help her publicity and fund raising a lot.

    Ironically, Obama is more of an American that Taitz is and they call her “Lady Liberty.”

    While I’m sure it must have happened before, this is the first time I have ever personally seen a Judge call a lawyer stupid. This is from Orly Taitz’s FOIA action in the DC Federal Court. He calls her stupid… and drops some pretty strong hints to the defendants that if they want him to sanction her, he’s itchin’ to comply.

    Orly knows very well that she redacted the social security numbers incorrectly. When it was pointed out in comments at her blog that she should redact the first 5 numbers, she replied that she couldn’t because then the judge wouldn’t be able to tell that the social security number originated in Conneticut.

    There was another document posted at the Fogbow that he was holding her ‘papers’ for possible sanctions. We can only hope that the defense requests them or the judge imposes them on his own.

    Orly may have good defense about the SSN#s. If she follows Judge Lambert’s order, the plantiffs can make the argument that there is no evidence that Obama’s SSN was issued in CT because the SSN has been redacted from the record. Therefore, as matter of record and evidence, Orly must show the first numbers of Obama’s SSN and following Judge Lambert’s order taints her case.

    Dr. Conspiracy July 26, 2011 at 9:45 am #

    That’s silly.

    Orly can file unredacted numbers under seal, plus her case isn’t about where Obama got his social-security number anyway. The only thing the court will decide is whether she’s entitled to a class of information under the Freedom of Information Act. Any particular claim about what is in the information is irrelevant.

    Monetary sanctions mean nothing to Orly. She will just get her super rich hubby or her minions to pay them. What needs to happen is her being flagged as someone who needs permission from the court before filing any cases. (I can’t come up with the term just now) This is how they deal with prisoners who have nothing better to do than file cases and appeals all day long.

    But this case has nothing to do with that. This comes in up many birther cases – they have a case involving A, and just hope the mere existence of the case will allow them to broach the subject of B. Hasn’t worked yet and it won’t. Orly doesn’t really care about the FOIA request – what she clearly wants is to use it to gain discovery of records completely irrelevant to the case.

    They wanted Obama’s birth info for Lakin’s case – it wasn’t relevant to the case. Orly tried to subpoena it for this case – Hawaii will ignore it and will either get it quashed or Orly will fail on a motion to compel because his birth certificate is irrelevant to whether or not FOIA was applied properly.

    I hope you calm down and are feeling better soon. I Just wanted to ask if you had some particular deceased man in mind, or if you just refer to some generalized conceptual deceased person. Perhaps the person is not deceased at all, but was a space alien who landed in Connecticut and obtained a social-security number before returning to space — this would explain why no one has noticed their social security account having unusual activity.

    You are aware, no doubt, that the Social Security Administration publishes the names and social-security numbers of deceased persons, and the putative Obama number you listed isn’t in there.

    I think you should stick to the space alien theory. It explains nothing, just like your deceased person theory, but it is much harder to disprove.

    I’m sorry, can you point out the exception in the Fed. R. Civ. P. that says you don’t have to redact if the number is plastered all over the internet? that’s right. There is none. The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure are rules to be filed by all parties with business before the court. They are not merely guidelines or suggestions. Failure to follow the rules can lead to her action being dismissed. The judge was being nice.

Unfortunately, the lesson Republicans learned from Watergate was not “don’t break the law” but “don’t get caught. Thus was born the conservative doctraine of Plausible Deniability. Reagan “didn’t know” weapons were being traded for hostages. Bush “didn’t know” that a CIA agent was outed. Those poor chief executives just didn’t know.

    alex j rynkiewicz: DO ALL THESE GOVT LAWYERS AND GOVT WORKERS KNOW THAT THEY COULD FACE TREASON CHARGES ALONG WITH ILLEGAL OBAMA FOR COVERING UP RECORDS OR INTERFERING WITH JUSTICE. YOU HAVE A DUTY TO TURN IN TREASONOUS PEOPLE. EVEN IF ITS YOUR BOSS. WHEN THE HOUSE OF CARDS STARTS TO COME APART THEN YOU WILL SEE ALL THE RATS JUMP SHIP LIKE IN WATERGATE. NIXON DIDNT KNOW OF THE WATERGATE BREAK IN BUT GOT CAUGHT UP IN THE COVER-UP. 1) OBAMA HAS A GREEN BIRTH CERTIFICATE-THE ONLY PERSON IN HAWAII TO GET ONE- IF THEY EVER SENT ONE TO HIM -EVERYONE ELSE GETS A BLACK AND WHITE COPY—THAT IS BECAUSE IT WAS NEVER PROCESSED AND SENT A BLACK AND WHITE COPY. 2) OBAMAS BIRTH CERT HAS 1961 TYPE MIXED WITH 2011 COMPUTER GENERATED KERNED LETTERS WHICH IS IMPOSSIBLE ON A 1961 TRUE DOCUMENT. 3 OBAMAS MOTHERS SIGNATURE ANN DUNHAM IS SIGNED ON A PERFECTLY STRAIGHT LINE-IMPOSSIBLE ,ONLY A COMPUTER CAN DO THAT. 4) OBAMA IS USING A STOLEN SOC SEC NUMBER 042-68-4425- STOLEN FROM A DECEASED CONN MAN. ENOUGH EVIDENCE????

    Produce the evidence!

    DaveH:

    There was another document posted at the Fogbow that he was holding her papers’ for possible sanctions. We can only hope that the defense requests them or the judge imposes them on his own.

    The other document is here:

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/60913629/TAITZ-v-ASTRUE-USDC-D-C-29-ORDER-to-seal-Opposition-to-Motion-for-Summary-Judgment-gov-uscourts-dcd-146770-29-0?in_collection=2874577

    My read is that Judge Lamberth would prefer to have the government ask for sanctions. If he does it sua sponte it will just encourage Orly to claim that Judge Lamberth is out to get her.

    This has caught the attention of the LegalTimes blog.

    Sef: What needs to happen is her being flagged as someone who needs permission from the court before filing any cases. (I can’t come up with the term just now) This is how they deal with prisoners who have nothing better to do than file cases and appeals all day long.

    If a court deems you a vexatious litigant, you cannot file a lawsuit without the court’s approval. “King of the Birthers” Andy Martin is well aware is this (he’s not allowed to file in any federal court).

    Orly has responded. And she is writing a book!

    Things are not what they seem, I have a record of all the phone conversations with the DC court, as well as records of all the faxes and e-mails sent to them

    Some employees of the DC court are lying to the judge. I kept record of all the phone calls, faxes and e-mails to the DC court and I have multiple witnesses as well. Some employee or employees of the DC court is/are lying and will be held accountable. On 07.21.2011 a fax was accepted in the DC court and was hand carried to the chambers of the chief judge. Sua sponte decision of the court on 07.21.2011 allowing me to resubmit the opposition was related to the fax received.

    I will resubmit the opposition and memorandum in support of the opposition to motion for summary judgment yet again. It will be done today. Seal means, that you cannot see it on the electronic docket, but the documents are there and will be considered. The seal will be removed, hopefully tomorrow.

    A lot is going on right now. Currently I am concentrating on doing everything I possibly can to inspect the original BC in HI and the original SSA application for Connecticut SSN 042-68-4425, which Obama is fraudulently using. So far there is no formal opposition from HI and the Department of Justice did not file a reply to my opposition brief. Both Attorney General of HI and the US attorney for the District of Columbia are out of time to file. I am not sure what is the explanation for lack of opposition on their part: maybe, they think that the fix is in or maybe they are afraid to be prosecuted later for the obstruction of Justice and aiding and abetting the SSA fraud or maybe there is some technical glitch. Another legal action will be filed soon.

    I will provide more information later. It also will be a part of my book, that will be coming out later. The book is tentatively titled “from the queen of the birthers. Secrets and intrigue behind the crime of the century”

    I wonder if her book will be in Russian.

    I’m surprised she hasn’t gotten a license plate with the number.

    Another amusing this is that she doesn’t seem to realize that the SSN validator website is not affiliated with the U.S. government and what she finds there doesn’t prove anything. That said, the website is once again showing that Obama’s SSN is valid and was issued in 1976 or 1977.

    If she gets sanctioned it will be more than that. She has accused the clerk of not filing her supposed docs, accused the judge of misinforming her how to redact, not really doing the reaction, multiple times. This is gross insubordination and should not be tolerated. To let this go reflects badly on the Court that people can get away with anything. She doesn’t even apologize for her mistakes.

    Rickey July 26, 2011 at 8:45 pm #

    I took a look at Orly’s exhibits in Taitz v. Astrue, and she actually got the information that Obama’s SSN was never issued in a response to an inquiry she made with the Social Security Number Verification Service. The problem there is that Orly violated Federal law by using the SSNVS, which is only to be used by employers to verify that the names and SSNs of employees match SSA records.

    Anyone who knowingly and willfully uses SSNVS to request or obtain information from Social Security under false pretenses violates Federal law and may be punished by a fine, imprisonment or both.

    I seem to recall that at some point Orly claimed that Obama is her “employee” because she is a taxpayer, but the SSNVS site says this:

    Social Security will verify SSNs and names solely to ensure the records of current or former employees are correct for the purpose of completing an Internal Revenue Service Form W-2 (Wage and Tax Statement).
    A current employee is defined as a person who has received and accepted a job offer.

    Somehow I doubt that there is any prospect that Orly will ever be completing a W-2 form for Obama.

    http://www.ssa.gov/employer/ssnvspamphlet.htm

    Of course, the most likely explanation for the information that Obama’s SSN was not in the system is that when Obama obtained a new SSN, a clerk at the SSA erroneously deleted his old number from the system.

    Dr. Conspiracy July 26, 2011 at 9:06 pm #

    My understanding is that the illegal access to the SSA system was perpetrated by Greg Hollister rather than Orly Taitz. For evidence see:

    [Scroll down, the hyperlink to Hollister doesn’t work.]

    I do remember Hollister using that excuse, among others. The idea that a taxpayer is the “employer” and entitled to everything is ridiculous. In a corporation, shareholders are the “employer” but they do not get to rifle through all of the CEO’s information. That is reserved to HR and the Board (or the designated personnel committee).
