$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.
