MS: Supreme Court saves energy, turns off unused Taitz bulb

The case of Taitz v. Democrat Party of Mississippi having been removed to federal court, the Mississippi Supreme Court has reviewed various emergency filings and objections from Orly Taitz, and decided to turn off her case until such time, if ever, the federal court remands the case back.

Read the order:

2012-05-04 MS (SCOMS) – Order by the Chief Justice to Stay State Action

 

Update:

In a related move, the federal district court has ordered that discovery be stayed (stopped) except for discovery related to the jurisdictional questions raised separately by the two defendants in their motions to dismiss. Here’s the order:

2012-05-04 – MS (SDMS) – ORDER Staying Discovery

    Merely their stamp. The case was removed to federal court when the Notice of Removal was filed, as everyone except Orly and her minions seemed to know.

    She still seems to believe she is in DISCOVERY! as she puts it, until and unless Judge Wingate signs the Order staying discovery filed by the MS AG,as she states she is afraid he’ll “stop” all her discovery.. Also not true. It’s stopped. Well, legally, which as we know means nothing to Our Lady Liberty.

    Slightly off topic but Taitz related. It says more about Sheriff Joke’s motives and intent.

    An excerpt from the amateur attorney’s crapfest entitled EVENT WITH SHERIFF ARPAIO TODAY, Posted on May 5, 2012 . . .

    “After sheriff spoke, he asked for any questions. I went to the stage and reminded him that I am the attorney who delivered to him documents showing a forged birth certificate and a stolen Social Security number, he remembered me. I told him that I have several cases going and it is very important for him to come to a deposition and I wanted to know, when can he appear for a deposition.

    His response was strange. He asked me, where do I live, whether I live in that area. I told him that I live in CA, but not in the Apple valley. He proceeded with a small talk and said that there are really nice restaurants in the area. I was not getting his train of thought. I asked him, if he would appear for a dpeosition and he was telling me something completely different, he was asking where do I live and saying that there are really nice restaurants in the area. This was in front of several hundred people. I am not sure what was he thinking. Did he think that I would be conducting a deposition at my house or a restaurant? All I could tell him, was that if he wants to do a deposition at a restaurant, I guess we can have it a restaurant.

    He proceeded to introduce me to the public. He was actually nice and complementary. He told the public that I am an attorney, that I am going after Obama. Everybody started clapping, I waived to the public. At that point I figured, I’ll use the opportunity to announce my campaign. I grabbed the mic from Phil Libertori, who was standing next to Joe and announced that I am running for the US senate against Feinstein.

    Everybody got really excited and clapped. This was Libertori’s event and I could not hog time any further. Later, when Arpaio asked for more questions, I asked, when will he submit a report. He looked surprised and asked what report. I stated “When will you submit an official report with Obama investigation results to the District Attorney for prosecution?” Arpaio said ” I don’t need to submit to no District Attorney” I asked “So, where will you submit it?” He became really evasive and said that he did not finish his investigation and he does not know yet.

    So, the only thing that I was able to find out, was the fact that he likes to go to nice restaurants, which is not very helpful for the case.”

    O/T: Andy Martin is trying to resurrect Orly’s failed argument that HI does not owe Obama any vital records privacy because the POTUS has published his BC. He’s holding a press conference in Honolulu today to complain that he hasn’t been granted access to the “vault copy”. (Birthers are still whining about the “vault copy”?)http://contrariancommentary.wordpress.com/2012/05/06/conservative-blogger-andy-martin-says-hawaii-officials-are-still-denying-access-to-president-barack-obamas-original-birth-certificate/

    Answer: none. The empty chair already did it.

    I have only been able to find one news report of the event. Orly isn’t mentioned, despite her attempts to disrupt another candidate’s event, although you can see the back of her head in the picture. :) I’m sure she feels the trip was worth 4 hours of driving though!

    It just occurred to me that if Orly is using all her time on her crusade and ostensible dental practice, someone else is probably cleaning her multimillion dollar house.
    What are the odds that person is not a US citizen?

    As for Apple Valley restaurants, they’ve fairly run of the mill chain restaurants.
    We not talking exclusive dining cuisine of LaCienega blvd in LA, places in SF, Chicago, NY or Paris.

    Poe’s Law in action.

    I honestly can’t tell whether Orly is so dense that she couldn’t spot Arpaio blowing her off, or if you are having us on.

    Let me be clear. I know Orly is dense enough. I know Arpaio is enough of a politician to be a master at not answering direct questions. I know Orly is vain enough to think that since she is confused about how and why Arpaio deflected her questions about depositions onto a discussion of local restaurants her readers will be too, and everyone will sympathize with her brilliance being foiled by a Sheriff who obviously misunderstood her question.

    I also know that if you wanted to take the micky out of Orly, the story you relate here would be nigh on perfect.

    Poe’s Law poses a terrible dilemma sometimes.

    What are the odds that person is here illegally? Just like the groundskeepers Willard Romney hired. The dog could not get off the car roof, to chase them away.

    from nbc:

    David Farrar, one of the plaintiffs who managed to lose in Georgia to an empty seat, has not given up his follies:

    As you know, the state appeals court stated that our action was premature, that we didn’t have standing to challenge Obama’s name on Georgia Presidential Preference Primary ballot.

    My present plan is to file another challenge against Obama’s name being placed on Georgia’s general ballot to avoid that particular problem. In addition, I will be adding even more evidence to impeach Obama prima facie birth certificate evidence.

    In addition, if Mitt Romney is the Republican Party presidential nominee; I will also be challenging his name being placed on the Georgia ballot, as he is not a natural born Citizen as well. If Romney allows Sen. Rubio on his ticket; he will also be challenged.

    and the dim bulb? also from nbc

    Orly reports on an event during which she met with Arpaio:

    Later, when Arpaio asked for more questions, I asked, when will he submit a report. He looked surprised and asked what report. I stated “When will you submit an official report with Obama investigation results to the District Attorney for prosecution?” Arpaio said ” I don’t need to submit to no District Attorney” I asked “So, where will you submit it?” He became really evasive and said that he did not finish his investigation and he does not know yet.

    So why is Arpaio’s so called posse’ investigating some of President Obama’s documents if he believes that he does not have to submit anything for prosecution… It is quite obvious to me that Arpaio has no intentions to submit any official results or charges, and will similarly refuse to testify under oath in pending court cases challenging President Obama’s eligibility.

    One may ask if Arpaio sees his investigations’ as bargaining chips as he himself is facing some serious investigations.

    donna: One may ask if Arpaio sees his investigations’ as bargaining chips as he himself is facing some serious investigations.

    I don’t question it. I asserted it as fact months ago, of course my ‘facts’ here are mere ‘opinions’ but no birther ever let themselves be slowed down by that so why should I?

    If you remember, Sheriff Joke’s ‘report’ was supposed to be released in late January. Then he delayed it several times. He was in negotiations with the US Attorney’s during February. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

    Then the US Attorney thought they had an agreement but Arpaio was just fluffing them. He decided to release the report anyway, presumably because the Feds didn’t give a rats patootie about it and didn’t buy into the whole ‘bargaining chip’ concept. When the birther world proceeded to fellate him over the report, he told the Feds to kiss his behind, and went full metal birther.

    I do give him credit for the way he blew Orly off the other day though. It apparently left her so confused she didn’t know which way was up.

    The excerpt I posted is a verbatim quote from her on her site. I believe she is mostly pretending to be confused to get reactions from her flying monkeys.

    I think Orly’s convinced herself that she and Arpaio are brothers in arms, so she couldn’t conceive that he was trying to tell her that he didn’t want to answer those questions publicly.

    Or, she’s afraid to bash Arpaio too openly in case he becomes useful to her again at some point. I’m less confident of this option, as Orly rarely hesitates to burn bridges.

    Small clarification.

    The Maricopa County Attorney stated the ditz’s subpoena was not valid, not Arpaio’s private attorney.

    The Mississippi Democratic Party has incorporated Strunk’s fail in its brief in support of its motion for Summary Judgment.

    It is easy to see the role that Scott Tepper is playing in this. As Orly’s fails mount up, they are effectively being used against her, and nobody knows her record better than Tepper.

    Orly’s follies continue unabated. It turns out that in the Mississippi case she sent her First Amended Complaint to the new defendants via certified mail, but she never obtained summonses for the new defendants. In Mississippi a summons has to be issued by the Circuit Court clerk. Consequently, none of the new defendants have been properly served.

    More hilarity in Mississippi, courtesy of Orly.

    She filed a Motion to Stay today, a day after the District Court had already issued an order staying the proceedings.

    And she has filed a Motion for Sanctions against attorneys Begley and Tepper. She has included the DVD of her fail in Georgia.
