Judd case returned to Judge Carter

The re-filed Judd v. Obama lawsuit in California is largely an attempt by obsessive birther attorney Orly Taitz to raise the same issues in the case of Barnett v. Obama from 2009, where Taitz was also the attorney before the same California court. Because of the related nature of the cases, the new suit has been transferred to federal judge David O. Carter, under General Order 08-05 (Related Cases), who heard the original case (and who also recently dismissed without prejudice  an attempt by Taitz to litigate Judd without actually filing it by removing it from state court to federal).

In the Barnett case Judge Carter was very tolerant of Taitz’ lack of legal skills, assisting her, for example, in getting President Obama served with the summons in the case. Ex-Marine Carter, however, ultimately ruled against Taitz and one might predict that he will be less patient with nonsense this time around. The case number will now read: SACV12-01888 DOC (ANx).

The Judd case itself is a huge business with many defendants1 and causes of action, including a federal racketeering claim against folks who haven’t bought into the idea that Obama is not eligible to be President. She’s even suing a federal judge.


1Defendants are: Barack Obama, Debra Bowen, William M Gardner, Brian P Kemp, Larry Rappaport, Natalie E Tennant, Nancy Pelosi, Michael Astrue, William A Chatfield, Alvin Onaka, Janet Napolitano, Eric Holder, Brian Schatz, Lynn Matusow, Alice Travis Germond, Obama For America, Ballot Law Commission of State of New Hampshire, Board of Directors of California Republican Party, Dean C Logan, Elizabeth Emken, Dianne Feinstein, Clay D Land, John Avlon, Chris Matthews, MSNBC, Kevin Underhill, Clearchannel Communications, KFI AM 640, John and Ken Show, John Kobelt, Patrick R Donahoe, CNN, John Does and Jane Does.

I asked Orly Taitz about the presence of Larry Rappaport (plaintiff in the previous Judd case) as a defendant on the District Court docket. She said this was a clerical error and would be corrected.

    So what did Larry Rappaport do, to be included on the side of the good guys? Until recently, he was one of Orly’s perennial “standing” plaintiffs.

    Perhaps a little bird told Larry what can happen to plaintiffs in Orly court cases and he told Orly he wanted out?

    I think Judge Carter some responsibility for Orly’s career as a vexatious litigant. Had he hit her hard with sanctions and a complaint to the California Bar Association back in 2009 when she first stunk up his courtroom with her incompetence and unethical behavior, she might have been stopped in her tracks early on. The one-two punch from Land and Carter might have taken her out 3 years ago. And he has repeated his enabling recently by dismissing both her bizarre attempt to re-open the Barnett case and her failed Judd 1 lawsuit with bland orders that made no reference to her profound incompetence.

    I double-checked the Court’s ECF record and Larry Rappaport is listed as a defendant (he was a plaintiff in the previous filing of Judd). It is possible that this is a clerical error. I haven’t seen (and it’s not on the Court system yet) the actual complaint in the re-filed case. I’ll ask a question on Orly’s blog.

    She forgot the kitchen sink.

    I didn’t check the pleading, did she sue the fogbow or similar sites, like this one and Orly’s World?.

    She didn’t sue any of the Obot sites, just listed them in her RICO complaint as other wrongdoers. I haven’t seen pleading in Judd 2.0, but we can see from the list of defendants that she’s not suing Obots.
