Who does Orly Taitz represent?

There is a legal adage that goes: “He who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client.” I don’t quite have a snappy way to put this variation, but it might go something like: “He who has Orly Taitz for a lawyer should get a lawyer.” To Orly Taitz, a client is nothing more than a ticket to get her into a courtroom to argue her delusions and to bask in front of the TV cameras afterwards. She only represents herself.

Capt. Connie Rhodes (Rhodes v. MacDonald) learned that the hard way and scrambled to protect her military career by the advising the Court that she didn’t authorize the appeal Orly Taitz filed, and that Taitz no longer represented her.

Now Taitz has done it again, in the case of Farrar v. Obama in Georgia. When Orly Taitz presented her case in Atlanta, she didn’t even acknowledge the other plaintiffs in the case: Lax, Judy, Malaren and Roth; and she didn’t argue for their interests in her Proposed order.

While David Farrar was gracious in defeat, Orly Taitz wrote a most inflammatory letter to Georgia Secretary of State, Brian Kemp, on his behalf in which she accused administrative court judge Michael Malihi of “gross abuse of judicial discretion and in flagrant violation of the law,” and even worse:

This behavior of judge Malihi was so outrageous, that not only his advisory opinion needs to be set aside, as not grounded in any fact or law, but state and county grand juries and the Attorney General of Georgia need to launch a criminal investigation into actions of judge Malihi and possible direct or indirect undue influence by Obama.

Are these Farrar’s sentiments? Apparently not. He said:

I[t] was unauthorized. I am in the process of addressing this issue with my attorney even as we speak.

Much more silliness appears in Taitz’s Emergency Appeal to Secretary of State Kemp, including a claim that it was unfair for Judge Malihi to use a citation from another court that the defense didn’t cite. A real lawyer would have known better.

    The day will soon come where some (or several) jurisdictions start to again hold her accountable for her vexatious and utterly unprofessional behavior.

    Someone as unstable as her has very little business being allowed out in public, let alone practicing law. In a more pragmatic world, she’d be safely straightjacketed and medicated in some padded cell somewhere…

    Sort of like “dog bites man” is not news.

    There’s a line that I think comes from the 1989 movie Scandal. In court the witness was confronted by a statement from someone and hen asked to explain why someone would say something that contradicted her, she said “Well he would, wouldn’t he?” She meant that people will say things that serve their own self interests.

    I always think of that moment when confronted by the latest outrage from the birthers. It’s what they do. What would be shocking would be a headline like “Orly Taitz submits professionally done and well-reasoned case” or “Mario Apuzzo addresses the issues fairly.”

    There is a serious question that goes along with the very headline of this article:

    Can Orly even Appeal the SoS ruling in GA, once it takes place?

    Of her “plaintiff clients” (i.e. her stooge props) … only Farrar had “standing” to bring this issue as a GA resident. She never even bothered to represent her supposed other “clients”, who claim to be “candidates” for President. None of them will appear on the GA ballot in the first place and she never even tried to get their claims of candidacy into the record.

    Farrar sure doesn’t seem to appreciate her “respresentation” of him, in her latest two crazed and insultingly unprofessional accusatory “emergency” filings to the SoS.

    Once the SoS rules, her only recourse is through the Appeals process…and the SoS will be the defense.

    She can’t even attempt that without overcoming 2 key hurdles here:

    1.) She must have a willing client with “standing” in this GA case.

    2.) She must convince the courts to allow her to practice in GA or get some local sucker attorney to vouch for her and put their own career on the line in doing so.

    I seriously question whether Farrar will agree to continue along with her folly.

    Leah Lax, Cody Judy, Thomas MacLeran and Laurie Roth simply don’t have a pot to piss in here anymore, without Farrar being on board.

    Irion and Hatfield are most assuredly not going to vouch for Orly either.

    So, the question remains… can she even find a Court or local attorney foolish enough to let her continue to play her games in GA at all ???

  22. avatar
    G February 6, 2012 at 2:20 pm #

    That does beg one other question about the Appeals avenue.

    I know that Farrar has indicated that he will not pursue this further…

    …but he is the actual “plaintiff” in Orly’s mad fail quest here. If he changes his mind and *does* want to Appeal, he could always drop Orly and go with some other local GA representation for that stage of the process, right?

    Couldn’t he just swap out lawyers (maybe grab Hatfield or some other GA lawyer for that purpose?).

    I was pointing this out once in regards to the Gospels. In each of the Gospels, each of the major miracles that is related in that Gospel, occurs only once in that Gospel. An exceptional occurence becomes less exceptional every time it repeats. If Christ had raised more than one dead guy, changed water into wine at every party, walked on water every day, resurrected himself more than once … they would all become party tricks. Watering down the miraculous into the mundane. “Yeah, yeah, another cripple is walking, great.”

    I had always heard that rulings from administrative law judges could be appealed, but in this case the actual decision is coming from Kemp and if something can be appealed, that is where it should go. If no appeal, a lawsuit against Kemp could always be filed. Any number of secretaries of state have been sued by birthers (e.g. Sec. Bowen in California, an Orly case).

    As to the question of a suit from Orly Taitz, I would think she could find some birther in Georgia willing to let her use them to file a suit.My understanding is that an out of state attorney need not have a local sponsor to appear before an administrative judge. I suppose that’s not true for a higher court.

    Tatiz’s Pro Hac petition was unopposed by Obama in the Farrar case (does this tell you something?) but a court could reasonably reject any Pro Hac petition in the future based on her prior sanctions in Georgia, and this most outrageous display of unprofessional conduct in the Farrar case.

    Then again, none of those types of miracles were necessarily “new” ideas when Jesus was around either.

    Many prior religions in that overlapping region of the world already had their own strikingly similar tales of such types of miracles happening… from Osiris & Horus in Egypt, to Mithras in Persia to even the various gods and myths of the Greeks & Romans…

    I also found the discussion of typography interesting. All birthers over the age of 60 should pay special attention to this section:

    “• Avoid setting text in all caps. The convention in some state courts of setting
    the parties’ names in capitals is counterproductive. All-caps text attracts
    the eye (so does boldface) and makes it harder to read what is in between—
    yet what lies between the parties’ names is exactly what you want the judge
    to read. All-caps text in outlines and section captions also is hard to read,
    even worse than underlining. Capitals all are rectangular, so the reader can’t
    use shapes (including ascenders and descenders) as cues. Underlined, allcaps,
    boldface text is almost illegible.”

    From that source article, it lists Lakin’s current activity as:

    Lakin’s only recourse now is a judicial appeal, but he’s uncertain that he can afford the costs. He has a book coming out this month detailing his experiences.

    It should be noted that the original hearing and DENIAL took place on 10-21-11 and then he was DENIED again in the RECONSIDERATION on 12-22-11.

    The only change that was accepted in the 12-22-11 motion was an agreement to slightly change how they characterized his military charges, but the denial of his medical license stands in that reconsideration.

    I think that might be a different matter than claiming damages. I’ll leave it to the actual lawyers here to answer these questions for us…

    he appears to have his own strong views on the issue, albeit misled, and has a tendency to listen more to the people who tell him what he wants to hear. on the whole, he doesn´t come across as a bad guy, just very fixed in his point of view as far as constitutional law is concerned.

    when he said he was being represented by orly, i suggested it wasn´t a good idea (o.k, i wasn´t that subtle) but he seemed to think she was his best bet. he seems to be regretting it now and appears to be horrified by her latest outburst.

    Something is seriously wrong with this woman……I wonder why people who love her won’t offer any help her. She’s clearly got something mental going on. Does Orly assume that any lawsuit she brings means she will win. Does she understand very basic concept of how lawsuits work, which is that sometimes folks win, sometimes they lose and sometimes folks work out an agreement.

    It is clear that she’s convinced that she is supposed to go to court and do whatever she wants and make folks jump around at her whim. That’s how crazy folks think. Seriously..

    LOL! The best write-up I’ve seen of this latest Orly madness is from Wonkette. They totally rip into her on her font choices.

    I give this my highest “must read of the day” recommendation for everyone looking for their LULZ:

    http://wonkette.com/462427/orly-taitz-orders-criminal-investigation-of-everyone-who-disagrees-with-her

    My favorite excerpt:

    Taitz, who evidently steals bedspreads from Las Vegas hotels and fashions them into suits, has now ordered an “emergency appeal,” which is the kind of thing that Actual Lawyers use when their client is about to be put to death, etc.

    But for Orly Taitz one Georgia citizen’s loss of a trial to prove Obama is a heathen from abroad is AKIN TO DEATH, so, writing in five different fonts, including underrated favorite of seventh-grade history presentations, StageCoach, and using, variously, all-caps, bold and underline to convey her point, Taitz has ordered for the criminal of investigation of the presiding judge in the case, Michael Malihi, and Obama’s lawyers, and of course Obama, as well as, probably, the court typist, the courtroom attendants, and that one elderly lady who was drinking from the water fountain outside the courtroom when the trial let out.

    Judging by the fact that between zero and one news outlets even covered the Farrar v. Obama ruling, really the only noteworthy thing about this is Orly Taitz’s ability to make a really strong case for herself as a lawyer by insulting a judge and otherwise throwing a tantrum in broken legalese.

    The comments over there are always a must read as well. From what there is so far, these are my favorites:

    Angerbear:
    If you put ten baboons in a room with ten typewriters, made them each drink a Red Bull Slurpee and then rigged the typewriters so that certain keystrokes would fire a Taser dart at one of the other baboons… Orly Taitz wouldn’t have to write her own legal appeals.

    Goonemeritus:
    Loosing to an empty chair will not look good to all her other high profile clients. Well at least she always has biting the heads of chickens at state fairs to fall back on.

    ChickenThief:
    Is Orly Jerome Corsi in drag or vice versa?

    BZ1:
    Oily apparently has her brain on caps lock permanently

    Beavertank:
    Is it just me, or does the text of that appeals brief become progressively smaller and smaller point as it goes? Almost as if the writer is slowly running out of air because they keep shouting so fast…

    On a serious note of her craziness, one of the commenters over there went to Orly’s site and reports that Orly is now pushing this as her latest connect-the-dots conspiracy madness:

    Coincidence… 1] hussein dunham meets secretly with supreme court 2] law clerk hired for judge carter shortly before Orly hearing 3] eric holder apparently seen entering judge land court house before hearing 4] Orly hawaiian hearing changed from before hussein’s arrival to after hussein leaves hawaii 5] Iranian valerie jarrett speaks in ATLANTA shortly before the iranian judge malihi hearing in Atlanta….hmmmm????

    *facepalm* *rolls eyes* *facepalm*

    ASK Esq: If someone ever did a knockoff of this font, they could call it Taitzesque.Can any of the computer experts here tell us if a font can be programmed to only write with poor grammar, rampant misspellings and extraneous commas?

    IANAL, but it would seem to me that they would have a cinch malpractice suit against Orly, except that damages would be impossible to quantify. Then there’s the whole point of what kind of idiot would ever have Orly as attorney.

    Speaking of that, remember her trouble with checking boxes? Doc posted instructions for inserting a new checkbox, a moderate pain. I finally fired up Word (not a fan) and gave the subpoena file a spin. All you have to do to check the existing boxes is right-click on’em and change the properties. If you left-click, you get a typing cursor to the left … right …. where …. Orly makes her X’s.

    Pretty petty criticism to make, but par for course Orly. I keep picturing her cursing her stolen laptop … “Nohhhh! Go eeeen it, the box! Eeeeeen the box! Eenfernul So-shee-list box! …. ***posting on blog*** E-M-E-R-G-E-N-C-Y-!-!-! Needs boxes willing to be checked. As many as possible.”

    Orly “files” an Election challenge in Indiana. In her submission she includes her “proposed summary of facts of law” from GA, but completely fails to note that the Judge did not use it, and also fails to include the decision from the GA hearing.

    IANAL, but I would think including a proposed judgement from another case, but failing to disclose the Judges decision that went against you, would be seen as unethical for a lawyer?

    It should be noted that the original hearing and DENIAL took place on 10-21-11 and then he was DENIED again in the RECONSIDERATION on 12-22-11.

    Originally it was announced that Lakin’s book would be published last September, and then mid-January, but it still isn’t available. Since it is a vanity project, I wonder if he is having trouble coming up with the cash to pay the publisher. It’s interesting that Joe Farah apparently isn’t willing to publish it, particularly seeing as how his lackey Unruh is involved.

    No sympathy for him or even his family. He brought it on himself and his family has shown over time that they have been helping to support and reinforce his delusions.

    Unlike Orly, Jerry Springer graduated from a real law school and worked for a real law firm.

    http://www.supremecourt.ohio.gov/AttySvcs/AttyReg/Public_AttorneyDetails.asp?ID=0028476

    However, his status is inactive, and his Ohio license file shows an address and job title that he hasn’t had in years.

    He then proceeds to ask for reconsideration on the grounds of errors by Malihi, quoting Appuzzo’s flawed analysis.

    Farrar himself posted the text of his letter to Kemp at Sqeaky Fromm’s in the comments section here…

    “Immediately after hearing that Georgia Judge Michael Malihi ruled against the Plaintiffs in the case regarding Obama’s eligibility to be on the 2012 presidential ballot, and hearing that Malihi was a Muslim Iranian, I decided to find out all I could about him. Is his ancestry really Iranian? Is his faith really Muslim? And did either of these things, if true, play a role in his decision to side with Obama in the Georgia eligibility hearing?”

    That would have nothing to do with a font. It would have to be a spell “checker” programmed with Orly spelling and grammar. Think e.g. MS Word grammar check pointing out commas that don’t belong and do the opposite. Maybe a website that would Orlynate any text fed to it πŸ™‚

    You can always tell when a Moldavian vampire has struck, because all the chickens are in a mysterious trance, and each egg has two small holes in the shell.

    Well, she was fired by Rhodes.

    And in the present case we may be on the brink of finding out. TFB reports someone posted over at Reality Check that Farrar has fired her after her latest vitriole-filled filing.

    Farrar may be a crazed birther, but in my interactions with him he’s always struck me as well-mannered and generally polite. I can’t imagine him being happy with a double-helping of Orlytaunt, particularly when it’s got his name attached and may well be opening him to monetary damages.
