Taitz v. everybody else: Orly’s massive lawsuit

A “do over” of the last four years is what Orly Taitz seems to be asking for in her latest filing in California, Judd v. Obama [link to complaint on Taitz web site]. This is the amended complaint in the case that was originally styled Taitz v. Obama, Feinstein, Emken et al.

Photo of Plaintiff Keith JuddSince Orly Taitz is still an attorney in California, she’s representing herself as well as a collection of the usual birther litigants, but this time the lead plaintiff is Keith Judd (aka “Dark Priest” right), a candidate for President. Recall that Judd got 40% of the Democratic primary vote in West Virginia and is supposed to be released from prison next June. Judd claims that he should have gotten all of West Virginia’s votes at the Democratic Convention because Obama wasn’t eligible. It seems a little late, though, to be pressing that claim.

What is amazing is the list of defendants, including pretty much everyone that has ever crossed Orly Taitz, even federal judge Clay D. Land who sanctioned her in Georgia. She’s got Obama in her sights of course, plus the Social Security Administrator, Selective Service, the secretaries of state of Virginia, Georgia, California and New Hampshire. She has the Republicans in California, her Republican opponent in the California Senate race, a pile of news organizations (MSNBC, CNN, The Daily Beast, Forbes Magazine and KFI AM), and the US Attorney General and even the Postmaster General. The State of Hawaii and the Democrats get their place at the table too–31 defendants all told.

Not only are there several plaintiffs and many defendants, in addition to filing the case in the US District Court for Central District of California, Southern Division, it is also being sent to the Department of justice, Inspector General of the Department of Justice, Public Integrity Unit of the Department of Justice, House of Representatives Oversight committee, Judiciary Committee, Elections subcommittee, Civil Rights Commission of the United Nations, International Criminal Bar Panel in Haague (sic), and the Inter-American commission for Human Rights.

The 110-page complaint (not including exhibits) includes an incoherent mix of causes of action as diverse as the list of defendants. I hesitate to try to impose order on this thing, but I’ll take a shot at the high points. Orly is taking aim at:

  • Republicans, for Orly’s loss in the California Senate Race (she claims fraud)
  • Government agencies (Social Security, Selective Service, the US Postal Service) that won’t do what she wants
  • The State of Hawaii that won’t bend their laws to let Orly play detective
  • Democrats who nominated Obama, or said he is eligible
  • People in the media who have said not nice things about Orly
  • Secretaries of State and elections commissions who are putting Obama on the ballot even though Orly told them not to
  • Everybody who has engaged in a criminal conspiracy to keep her from getting Obama out of office.
  • The federal judge who sanctioned her for her previous antics in court

Basically Orly is trying to re-litigate all of her prior losses in court over the last 4 years, hold the California Republican Senate Primary again, and to punish the media for speaking ill of her. It’s as if Orly never learned one essential English word: “no.”

Since Orly has pretty much lost all of these cases already, I can imagine that the defendants will looking for monetary damages for having to defend a frivolous lawsuit. Skimming Orly’s usual nonsense might be light entertainment for some, but it has to be a royal pain for the attorneys and law clerks to go through these things point by point, citing applicable law as to why they should be dismissed. By suing everybody under the sun, she’s opening herself up for some serious sanctions and assessments of costs and fees. Orly’s mania may have finally ruined her.

    Orly didn’t write the complaint. I bet somebody with a lot of experience (748 lawsuits in 15 years???) wrote it. She doesn’t know what full justification is. I bet she paid in cigarettes.

    The suit is filed in Orange County. Good chance of getting Judge Carter. Or a judge who knows Judge Carter. How many federal judges can there be in that court house?

    Her plaintiff is in prison. Unlike Lucas Smith. Great to know who she thinks has “perfect” standing.

    Her last case in Orange County was dismissed for venue problems. I’m sure suing the Ballot Law Commission of New Hampshire causes no such problem. If it does, maybe Judge Carter or his friends will forget that rule.

    She is suing Judge Land. For ruling against her. And being upheld on appeal. Can you do that? Sounds like a neat idea. Suing judges who rule against you. Maybe Mr. Judd wants to sue the judge who sent him up the river. For 17 years. A new concept of a vacation White House.

    Bradlee Dean has been ordered to pay MSNBC’s lawyers $24,625.23 for his frivolous lawsuit against MSNBC and Rachel Maddow. Since Orly has 15 times more defendants than Bradlee Dean did, hopefully her anti-SLAPP sanctions will be several times what Dean’s are.

    You know who should be sued and sanctioned and assessed costs?

    The California Bar Association, that’s who.

    If I let a wild animal under my control free to roam at will in my neighborhood, I’d be sanctioned for the damages it causes.

    The CBA has received at least one professional, legitimate complaint that I know of, and wasn’t it cc’ed by the Judge who sanctioned Orly?

    At this point, not only her license should be yanked, but the CBA should indemnify all the parties who incurred costs because of that madwoman, and then recover the money from her of course.

    But they should be in the front line.

    Why, if I was a defendant in one of her crazy suits, I’d sue the CBA.

    However, as a layman I tried really really hard to find something in the CA Bar Code of Conduct or the CA Professional Code of Conduct (or whatever they are called, I can’t remember now).

    From what I could figure out, just about the only thing she can be disbarred for is actually killing a Judge during a trial.

    US Citizen: If all goes right, she’ll get sanctions

    With that many defendants, being ordered to pay defendants’ attorney fees would mean a serious dent in her (and/or her husband’s) wealthy wallet, even without sanctions.

    I didn’t read her filing, did she make sure to preemptively call the presiding judge a traitor if he should dare disagree with her?

    > Basically Orly is trying to re-litigate all of her prior losses in court over the last 4 years

    Yup. And the good ole “suing the judge who ruled against me”. That is 100% vanilla (layman) crank behaviour. It seems she’s really off the deep end by now.

    BTW, whatever happened to her RICO suit? Has it been dismissed yet?

    Buy shares in popcorn!!

    Apparently Orly is (p12 of PDF):

    … being … viciously persecuted, harassed, impoverished, slandered and defamed …

    No, can’t recall of any of that. Orly has persecuted, slandered and defamed plenty of people with her persistent mendacity, and impoverished some suckers by bleeding them of their Birther Bucks, but I don’t think I’ve read anybody doing any of those things to her. Massive projection by Ms Nasty.

    I’m concerned that she has slipped up in naming the last of her defendants:

    JOHN DOES and JANE DOES 1-100 Plaintiffs will provide the names of
    defendants John Doe and Jane Doe upon further discovery

    But surely the fraud and corruption uncovered by the tirelss campaigner of Lunatica Niguel is so wide and so deep, surely there are more than one hundred racketeers waiting to be uncovered in her discovery? (I don’t know why birthers need discovery, can’t they forge their own documents?)

    I agree that Orly v. The World could be quite amusing, as she has named a lot of people who are going to be thinking “right, it’s time to stop this mad and evil woman”.

    Yeah, I totally feel the same way. As someone who INAL, I’ve learned so much about our legal process throughout these past 4 years. Most of it has been quite fascinating to learn or at least has given me a more balanced perspective to understand why things simple are the way that they are and to be more patient with the entire process. The one area I’d say I’m the most disappointed in by far is how weak and toothless the CA Bar and its Code of Conduct are…

    G: The one area I’d say I’m the most disappointed in by far is how weak and toothless the CA Bar and its Code of Conduct are…

    I think that’s quite common. The only lawyer I know who ever was disbarred in my country for legal antics had to call the judges of our highest civil court “Nazis” several times to warrant this sanction. He was a well-known crank lawyer representing mostly crank clients, but also sane clients, and regularly abused his clients’ cases for his personal vendetta against the legal system. It’s quite telling nobody bothered to disbar him for neglecting his clients’ cases – which he regularly sank by only concentrating on his personal issues – but only for personally insulting the highest judges.

    All other cases of disbarment in my country I know of were related to serious crimes (as in “commercial sale of pirated software”), not just to being obnoxious or vexatious.

    So it doesn’t really surprise me, though I thought the US legal system was much more of a “shark tank” than the German system and therefore much stricter when it comes to sanctioning attorneys.

    She’s never plead RICO properly in MS or anywhere else. In fact, she blew the deadline to fill out the RICO questionnaire in MS (now by months). She has no RICO action going anywhere. All of which is a moot point because a) there is no RICO involved; and b) she could never properly plead it even if there were.

    That complaint was the weirdest I have ever seen and I read the complaint where someone sued GOD because Hailey’s Comet was a huge disappointment. There is nowhere to begin with all the problems with it, starting with standing and ending with issues of res judicata and subject matter jurisidiction. One claim, by itself, the one involving Judd, suffers from the following:
    1) Lack of Subject Matter Jurisdiction (this is non waivable)
    2) Lack of Personal Jurisdiction over the defendants (this is waivable)
    3) Mootness (the DNC convension has taken place, even if the WV was awarded to Judd, he was not a candidate on any other state ballot and Obama would still be nominated).
    4) Improper venue (this is waivable)
    5) It may be in violation of the 11th Amendment (I am not 100% sure about this one, but I if I were the one filing the motion to dismiss, I would include it)
    6) Lack of standing (this is related to the mootness issue, since both the primary and the nomination has taken place, Judd has no damages that are different and distinct from any other person opposing Obama on the ballot (at least is how I understood the 9th circuit’s ruling on standing)

    I reads like it was written by someone in a manic phase while high on crack and LSD. I can say this without fear of contradiction, no sane person would and certainly no person with any legal training, would put all of those causes of action in one complaint let alone sue a judge for something done in his judicial capacity.

    Orly likes nothing better than being her own lawyer. And we all know how her personal evaluation of her own competence differs with our views of her competence.

    Ever think about the fact that she’s also a dentist? Think about all the drugs she has access to. I dunno… just wondering. If she does have coping issues and she does think she’s smarter than anyone in the world, well, she’s a prime candidate for self medication. (Think Rush Limbaugh.)

    I am mildly offended by the fact that Orly Taitz has not bothered naming me as a Defendant.

    After all, I have voted for Obama in both primary and general elections for the US Senate and Presidency, donated money to his Presidential campaign, argued repeatedly that he is quite clearly eligible to be President, and described Taitz’s submissions as frivolous as a matter of both fact and law.

    Obviously, this complaint is quite obvious support for my criticism of Taitz. It reads like an effort to win a word record for greatest number of tort claims asserted by someone who understands none of them.

    I support Obama, and as far as I’m concerned, all the stuff in his poems about amber stains and shinking isn’t really important to figuring out his love for his fellow man.

    I agree with the “representation” vs “real” stuff. The only thing that matters is that someone showed a paper document to that NBC reporter, and that’s all America really needs.

    Quoting from the Open Thread since it applies to Orly v. the World

    Andrew Vrba, PmG: Is anyone else saving up their energy for laughing themselves sick, once Orly’s super-mega-lawsuit gets smacked down? I get the feeling that this is her Waterloo, and that she’ll finally snap like the elastic on a pair of Wayne Knight’s briefs.

    I am not sure this will get much of anywhere. If there is one constant in life, it is the Orly is incapable of effecting proper service (or unwilling to try). With such a large list, it would be an event of biblical proportions for her to actually get it right.

    For her, it is not necessary to follow proper service, or even have probative evidence. In OrlyLaw, she only needs to file and make the claim with as much “evidence” as possible. It is the defense that has to respond and provide more evidence to prove her wrong. Thus, more filings and more pages (and DVDs) are good, no matter what they say. The rules are not necessary for her since she sees the responsibility lying completely with the defense.

    Another thought I had on this upcoming spectacle, for someone who claims to be a champion of the Constitution, I don’t think the dumb bitch(That’s a clinical term btw) has actually read said document, particularly the first amendment! A good number of people on her list of defendants are simply there, because she didn’t like what they had to say, or they didn’t print/broadcast the lies that she demanded them to.

    Here’s hoping she catches the judge on a bad day. A day where he or she says, “I’ve had nothing but frivolous crap come through my courtroom this week. I am gonna sanction the HELL out of the next person to come in here and waste my time. I will sanction them so hard that it will make it into the Guinness Book of World Records!
