Orly gets help

It was just today that commenter Rickey said in reference to Orly Taitz :

It would be nearly impossible for a competent attorney to manage complex litigation involving multiple defendants around the country without the assistance of other attorneys (or at least a battery of paralegals).

Well guess what? Orly has hired a paralegal. She wrote yesterday [link to Taitz web site]:

As I am prosecuting 6 cases against Obama in different states your urgent support is needed. I had to hire a paralegal to help me with thousands of pages of pleadings and exhibits, complaints and motions going to different states.

I think this “6 cases” (and at least 38 defendants) thing is at the root of the problem. Orly confirms visual indications of decline seen in her haggard appearance, saying, “this work is depleting my financial, physical and emotional resources.” It’s not going to get any better. That’s followed by a plea for money and volunteer support from other attorneys and paralegals.

When the paralegal makes a mistake, of course Orly blogs about it [link to Taitz web site], which doesn’t strike me as something a good boss does.

Orly’s finances have always been a mystery and I won’t engage in uninformed speculation here on the blog about them.

    Oh, I was hoping it was the other kind of help.
    You know, the kind where she is put in a padded room, so she can’t hurt herself or others.

    That’s the conclusion you were supposed to jump to.

    Orly’s as likely to “get help” as she is to frogmarch Obama out of the White House.

    The paralegal will quit once she finds what a disarray everything is and having been abused by the crazy one.

    Quit? The poor thing will probably be psychologically damaged for life!

    I am not sure she is looking as much to “frog marching” but instead she wants her discovery. Her “discovery” grail has reappeared more as of late and, as it was the first go around, it seems to be her main focus.

    Or maybe, she realizes she does not have enough evidence for frog marching so she is desperate to find any and she things discovery is the way to find the missing evidence. Of course, that makes a little too much sense for her.

    Hah!

    I can’t see any paralegal sticking with Orly for long. I can only imagine what her office must look like.

    Like Doctor Frank N. Furter’s lab I’d imagine. Only more frightening and less tastefully decorated.

    It’s perfect! Orly outsources all adversity and mistakes onto the imaginary paralegal, and remains consistently responsible for any (imagined) successes.

    Is the paralegal named “Mike”?

    Seems to me any serious, worthy national litigation campaign would requires not only a paralegal, but a multi-state network of well-connected legal firms. Months if not years of research before filing a solid case.

    Then again, any credible case should be just as well pursued rigorously in one state. Years of shotgunning pastina at the wall in hopes of discovering traction …. desperation.

    What could a paralegal do to help anyway? What constitutes “help” in this situation? Following Orly’s orders would just make the mess bigger and we know she doesn’t listen to reason.

    MANY paralegals can do a better job than taitz

    I didn’t know there was any mystery about how Taitz finances her litigation habit. I mean, we don’t exactly how she does it, nor is it our business; but she certainly has several resources she might be drawing on, one of them extremely substantial, so it’s not like it’s surprising that she can swing it.

    Right you are, Donna. We’ve “gotten used to” Orly’s technical incompetence and both that and the statements she makes expressing her vicious right-wing hatred for President, can seem less abusive because they are incessantly diluted by her naive and inept misuse of the English language. It is almost as though she is a child pretending to be a lawyer and must similarly be forgiven for the cute excesses of her madness.

    Almost, but not nearly quite. My attorney friends say the kinds and range of errors she routinely makes are generally reserved to a short period of time near the end of a lawyer’s career who has suffered a mind-degenerating physical condition, usually late in life, and needs to retire. If she was not casting herself as a political dissident, they say she would not be tolerated by the judicial system at all. In other words, nobody in the judicial system considers this frequent-flying legal travesty, to actually be a lawyer. She represents an example of what our judicial system wants to be able to accommodate in principle, if a legally incompetent citizen ever appears before them with a serious and legitimate controversy.

    In the mean time, her individual blunders evoke laughter from them, even as they tolerate the appalling spectacle of the extent to which she abuses the legal system.

    Rumor has it that this “paralegal” is there in order to write an exposé that will hopefully appear in a tabloid:

    Benji Franklin: If she was not casting herself as a political dissident, they say she would not be tolerated by the judicial system at all.

    It would explain why she injected herself into the birther business in the first place – a subconscious desire to escape the inevitable career breakdown?
