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.
