Orly’s lost luggage

Today is an important day for Orly Taitz in Mississippi. The hearing on motions to dismiss  and for judgment on the pleadings from all of the plaintiffs, the Mississippi Democratic Party, the Secretary of State of Mississippi, the Hawaii Defendants, President Obama et al. is scheduled for 1 PM (Central Standard Time, UTC-6).

The case hasn’t gone well for her so far. I can only assume that Taitz filed suit in Mississippi because she thought the political climate there would be more amenable to attacks against a black President. Wrong! Like most birthers, Taitz believes that her prior losses were due to drawing the wrong judge, not because of lack of merit in her cases. Not only did this case, Taitz v. Democrat Party of Mississippi, become largely moot because of her own actions, she encountered unexpected strength in the opposition, from attorneys Begley and Tepper, and she drew a very competent federal judge, Wingate. Wingate ruled against her pro hac vice admission to practice in Mississippi. Orly’s other Plaintiff’s have not held up their side of the suit. Tepper seems motivated to do more than just get this settled in the defendants’ favor, but also to recover costs, and as to Taitz’ one-woman legal jihad against the President, shut that whole thing down.

TAITZ LOSES SUIT(case)

So today is the big day when 9 months of labor come to a head—and Orly has lost her luggage. Do people still check luggage for an overnighter? Apparently Orly does. Airlines warn you not to put anything critical in checked luggage, things you cannot do without, like medications, legal papers and your black lawyer dress. Orly says she will have to appear in Court in jeans and without her papers.

Sources indicate that there will be extensive Obot reporting from Mississippi and we’ll look forward to that, I hope later today. This lost luggage will have a significant impact on one of the most important aspects of the hearing, the fashion report.  I hope everybody brought coats; it’s 34 degrees in Jackson this morning.

Information:

Following is an opposition motion to the dismissal filed by Taitz on Nov. 14.

    Isn’t this entire proceeding moot, since the election is over so there no longer exists a ballot to have Obama’s name on it or not. The certification of the electoral vote is likewise moot, since there are no electoral votes for Obama in Mississippi, I understand Orly thinks that the political climate for her nonsense is more favorable in red states (that is debatable) but there is nothing she could possibly accomplish there now. I am afraid she will have to file in states Obama actually won. Not that she will win there either.

    A civil RICO case, like any civil lawsuit, requires actual damages. The only difference is that the plaintiff can get triple damages. But 3x $0 = $0. Unless Orly is using Karl Rove math, where 3 x 0 = 20 gazillion. Even if all of her allegations were true, where are the damages? What exactly could the judge DO if he found in Orly’s favor?

    clestes November 16, 2012 at 1:54 pm #

    So this dimbulb actually packed her legal papers in her suitcase, which then got lost by the airlines?? This story is so stupid it HAS to be true.

    Only Orly could possibly manage to snafu a case so badly. Her legal mistakes are so basic that i have sometimes wondered if she did them on purpose, but for what reason I cannot even guess.

    So after 9 months of preperation she is going to show up in court in jeans, with no legal documents or notes and plead lost lugguage. She will probably ask for a continuence and Tepper will object. Hopefully the judge will not grant it and we can all be entertained by her becoming more frazzled earlier than usual and to a greater degree.

    God I would pay to see this show!

    In the Mississippi case, Taitz cited her work on the birther movement.

    “As stated previously, Taitz made a superhuman effort of working 24/7 for 4 years in gathering information and serving defendants with subpoenas to appear in court and provide evidence,” Taitz wrote in the court papers.

    Ha ha. I loved this part:

    At the hearing Obama’s attorney Scott Tepper started with very arrogant remarks. He called all of my experts buffoons (It seems he considers Sheriff Arpaio, investigator Zullo, officer Sampson and everybody else buffoons).

    Also she’s going to sue the Electoral College to stop them from placing their votes. Is the EC an actual entity that would be subject to things like law suits? I thought it was just a collection of 538 individuals. Could any judge enjoin the EC to stop them from voting even if that judge wanted to?

    Liked this sentence at the end, which I’ve seen in similar forms on other Orly articles:

    I will research all the issues. Let me know if you can come up with any good precedents or statutes.

    I like how Orly Taitz, ostensibly a lawyer litigating extremely important and historic cases, acts like a lazy 8th grader trying to put together a research paper for her 5th period History class.

    I don’t see how this would work. In effect, he is asking a court to ORDER a democratically-elected body to vote (or not vote) in a particular way. This would open the door to courts ordering Congess to vote yea or nay on legislation. Courts can invalidate legislation, but have (wisely) never seen it as within their powers to attempt to direct legislative votes.

    If the actors of Carry On movies were still around to make these silly movies, imagine what fun they and we would have with “Carry On Birfing”.

    Since someone may actually want to make one in 2016, I am not going to divulge my plot proposals, just remeber I am available for a fee. But it would definitely involve some Moldovan heroine, I mean heroin queen, an Italian actor (who MUST have been in at least one Godfather film before), a bankrupt lawyer from Transsylvania called Phil Mountain and a Bulgarian print type specialist with bogus diplomas and references.

    Although of course, all the diplomas of these fine and honorable gentlemen and ladies will be bogus, as bought from a diploma mill in Cluj, Romania. (seems they have a big Dental Institute there, will lots of French, Italian, English and US students)

    Oh, and I will insist on an ending where the Moldovan heroin queen is frantically pursued by men in white coats shouting “Infamy, infamy! They’ve all got it infamy!”

    Of course, his claim that they should be “readily identifiable” is dubious, considering that none of the electors have been certified yet.

    One thing that I was also wondering about:

    He writes that the EC casts its votes secretly, is that correct? If so, how can he even enjoin anyone effectively from voting for Obama? How could anyone ever prove who voted for Obama?
    Even if a court entertained his follies, if Obama received all 320-something EC votes, how could anyone go after any elector without trying to unravel a secret voting procedure?
    Shouldn’t he rather seek for a ruling that enjoins Congress from certifying any Obama vote?

    And now Orly has submitted “proofs of service” which make it abundantly clear that she is not suing Onaka and Fuddy as individuals but in their official capacities. We know this because Orly never attempted to serve them personally. Instead, she tried to serve the attorney general’s office.
