Where I grew up, they said that bad news comes in threes. That seemed to play out today as Orly Taitz and Montgomery Sibley both had losses in the Supreme Court and the angst at the Law Offices of Orly Taitz in Rancho Santa Margarita, California was only increased by a further bitter disappointment in Mississippi.
Taitz had placed high hopes on getting a default judgment against Michael Astrue, commissioner of Social Security, who didn’t respond to her complaint in the case of Taitz v. Democrat Party of Mississippi. She thought somehow that this non-response would erase federal privacy legislation and Social Security Administration policy, allowing her free reign to access SSA files on Obama in what she termed “post judgment discovery.”
Astrue had responded to Taitz lawsuits before. What was different about this one? The obvious conclusion I arrived at was that Taitz had, as she has done many times in the past, bungled service of the Defendant. As I have said before, one needn’t put too much effort into figuring the ins and outs of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure as they relate to which thing(s) Taitz did wrong. If one is patient, the judge will explain it to everyone in clear, authoritative language, and that’s what happened to day from Judge Wingate.
