Taitz sanctioned

Orly Taitz$250 is not a lot of money, but at least it’s a step in the right direction.

Sources close to the Lisa Liberi/Orly Taitz lawsuit report that Taitz (pictured right) was sanctioned $250 yesterday by federal district judge Andrew J. Guilford for filing five motions in violation of the Court’s pre-filing order (motions must be approved before filing). The Court also sanctioned Tatz’s counsel Schumann, Rallo & Rosenberg, LLP in the same amount.

Taitz , Neil Sankey and an impressive list of co-defendants, are being sued by Lisa Liberi and Phil Berg, over the alleged defamation of Liberi by Taitz. Taitz stands by her claim that Liberi is a convicted felon, and has moved to have the case dismissed under the California AntiSLAPP law, a law that provides for dismissal of frivolous lawsuits filed to inhibit freedom of speech through the legal process.

I think that if anything, this is a cautionary tale about getting tangled up in a lawsuit. It looks like a total of six lawsuits/appeals and at least a dozen litigants including Oracle Corporation and Lexis/Nexis. There were 308 filings/orders one suit alone at the district level, and an appeal in Lisa Liberi et al v Orly Taitz et al is currently before the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in California.

    I did state the facts about Trace and her previously recorded and plain pattern of inane fact and value free postings, thats not an attack, it’s an observation of her previous recorded behaviour.

    The other section was an assumption and personally attacking and I apologize to you.

    You mean like invading a country, after making WMDs from whole cloth, so Cheney’s coterie could get their paws on oil?

    How about Spiro Agnew, who shook down contractors for bribes, to the tune of $100K? How about Agnew taking $5K cash in the Executive Office building, from a contractor in Baltimore?

    How about Nixon and Watergate?

    KBOA,
    the Obama administration is one of the cleanest to date. Three years in, and no major criminal charges against anyone of any importance.
    Cleaner both Bush’s & Clinton, and much cleaner than Reagan, whose administration had the most criminal convictions of any admin, even more than Nixon’s, I believe.

    Remember, Obama’s skin color giving you heartburn and nightsweats does not qualify as lawbreaking.

    Well, that’s $20,250 in fines for Ms. Taitz and counting!

    “This is one of several suits brought by Ms. Taitz in her quixotic attempt to prove that President Obama is not a natural born citizen as is required by the Constitution. This Court is not willing to go tilting at windmills with her.”–Chief US District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth, “Taitz v Obama (quo warranto), April 14, 2010.

    “A spurious claim questioning the President’s constitutional legitimacy may be protected by the First Amendment, but a Court’s placement of its imprimatur upon a claim that is so lacking in factual support that it is frivolous would undoubtedly disserve the public interest.”
    US District Court Judge Clay D. Land, US District Court for the Middle District of Georgia, “Rhodes v MacDonald,” September 16, 2009
    Orly Taitz was the attorney for Captain Connie Rhodes, an Army doctor who wanted assurances that the President was legally qualified to order her to deploy to Afghanistan.
    Orly Taitz was sanctioned to the tune of $20,000 by Judge Land who dismissed Captain Rhodes’ lawsuit. Captain Rhodes fired Orly Taitz as her attorney, reported Ms. Taitz to the California Bar Association for violations of professional standards and Captain Rhodes reported for movement to Afghanistan.
    Ms. Taitz appealed her sanction to Justice Thomas who denied the request for an injunction and then to Justice Alito. Justice Alito forwarded her application for injunction to the full Court. It was rejected and Orly Taitz paid the fine.

    In other Orly news, her Opposition to Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment in Taitz v. Astrue was stricken by the court because she once again failed to redact Social Security Numbers. She then claimed, rather disingenuously, that she had sent both a redacted and unredacted version to the court and that the clerk filed the wrong one. However, the clerk has been unable to find the supposed redacted version.

    Judge Lamberth, exhibiting extraordinary patience, has given Orly 14 days to file the redacted version.

    Yes, she doubled down. She “respectfully and humbly” asked the court to reinstate her motion to dismiss because everyone is being mean to her. Uncharacteristically, she did not post on her web site a poorly written screed asking her lunatic followers to harass the judge for being mean to her. Maybe the other defendants and attorneys in this case who are not lunatics or birthers are reigning her in.

    Ms. Dr. Taitz was urging her followers to harass pretty much everyone in Hawaii. She previously did this with Judge Carter, and then when caught complained to the 9th Circuit that there was no evidence of her misbehavior. Her latest rant about Hawaiian officials who do not want to speak with her is proof, like the redaction issue, that Ms. Dr. Taitz cannot learn. I suppose that it is too much to ask the 9th Circuit to look at her site as that would be evidence outside of the appellate record.

    I always thought that she had gotten some of her ‘supporters’ to help pay her 20K sanction, by trying to play the victim. Like with KBOA, make it seem like its all Obama fault, and the ‘poor single mothers’ send their money to help a rich woman for her competence.

    I will have to check it out, thanks! I’ve got a pretty darn near complete library of all of HP Lovecraft’s writings (several tales more than once, as they are usually in compendiums and to get certain obscure short stories, you pretty much end up with many of the same tales found elsewhere as part of the package. I also have quite a number of his contemporaries writings, who continued to write within his “mythos” after him. But I don’t have any Stross…so that is now on my list.

    I think her latest filing will get her sanctioned again.
    She “redacted” the SSN by striking the last 4 numbers out with a pen (!), but you can still read the numbers in every instance. Also she quoted the opposition (which redacted everything *but* the last 4 numbers), again allowing anyone to reconstruct the full SSN from her filing.

    And once more I wonder, is this a new world record in incompetence, or done to fail on purpose, or a medical condition of extreme stubbornness where she tries to tell the court “I don’t care what you say, I’ll find a way to get my way no matter what”?

    This is mind-boggling, even for Orly. She really believes that the Hawaii AG or Hawaii DOH will respond to inquiries by people who aren’t parties to the litigation? Has it occurred to Orly to pick up the phone herself and call the AG’s office?

    G: When will these judges learn that treating Orly with kid gloves does not make her go away or act any less crazy?

    The Judge did make a none to subtle hint to the defense suggesting they ask for sanctions, thus avoiding his need to do it sua sponte.

    As for the California Bar Court, I remember Orly mentioning trouble with them in early 2010. I can only figure, if there was any action, it was private discipline. Since then, most of her cases have been submitted pro se and, if I recall, in all other cases, she is representing herself (or even managed to get counsel). Only the original Keyes-Markham v. Obama is left of her cases where she had supposed clients.

    I am not sure the if they treat differently discipline for attorneys who are not representing clients and, especially, on pro se filers. I would assume the court would be easier on them, though she still is an attorney.
