Settlement reached in Jordan v. Reed

Linda Jordan and the Attorney General of Washington State agreed, according to a report at Obama Release Your Records, on a settlement by which Jordan would pay  the State $3,500 for the cost of their defending a frivolous appeal filed by Jordan. The State had previously been awarded almost $13,000 in costs, but this amount had been appealed by Jordan’s attorney Richard B. Sanders.

According to ORYR, Jordan had already received donations towards her sanctions that exceed the settlement plus her attorney fees. So much for the theory that actions have consequences.

    Washington State Caves: Obama Identity Document
    Fraud Challenger Fine Now $3,500 Instead Of $13,000

    By Linda Jordan

    On March 13, 2011 we finalized an agreement with the Attorney General’s Office to settle for $3,500. A far cry from what they wanted. Add in the fee I paid my lawyer and the total is $4,500.Thank you and former Supreme Court Justice Richard Sanders. We raised around $5,326.00 more than what I ended up paying. If donors would like a refund I am in the process of figuring out the percentage amounts each donor would receive and notifying you. This will take a bit of time. If you don’t want a refund the remaining funds will be used to continue the effort to have Barack Obama prosecuted for using forged identity documents.

    “I am working on another project as I write”……So, looks like the original intent of the sanction, to deter frivolous lawsuits ain’t working. Of course, based on typical birther idiocy, Linda will end up in the sa m e court again, don’t see the court being so forgiving next time

    I’d take her claim of receiving ANY donations, much less thousands of dollars, with a grain of salt; birfers are all talk. When the chips are down they don’t show up and their wallets are closed.

    The birfers seem to think this is a victory. Jordan lost the case and she got sanctioned $3500. Given how few birfer cases have led to sanctions, this is a more devastating loss than most others.

    I guess the birfer joy over this “victory” is just another example of how divorced they are from reality.

    And she admitted in a court of law that her appeal was frivolous. Some “victory” indeed. *facepalm*

    Still it’s interesting to note she doesn’t claim that she “still needs money to pay my lawyer” or whatnot. I don’t think Orly or Klayman would’ve passed on the opportunity to milk the gullible for more money.
    Which seems to indicate Jordan belongs to the “deluded followers” part of the movement, not the “scam artist” branch.

    The affectation “deluded follower” is redundant but aptly describes Ms. Jordan.

    However, I am surprised that Orly Taitz isn’t suing Sanders for stealing potential clients or copyright infringement. At least Sanders has better hair.

    She says she took in $5K more in donations than she needed to pay her sanctions and her lawyer (who charged her $1000). Plus, she illegally accessed President Obama’s record in E-Verify. She’s probably in the middle of the “bigger idiot” pyramid, and she probably does suffer from delusions, but she’s not just a deluded follower. She’s a criminal and a scammer who was found to have abused the judicial system and found people who were bigger idiots than she is to pay for the consequences of her own poor judgment and bad behavior.

    Orly, however, is getting increasingly desperate for attention. Especially as she knows the birther stuff is circling the drain. Look at her latest posts – crazy allegations that God is about to smite Obama (clues – his limo broke down, and Egypt has a locust problem), that Obama is on a gay bender with Reggi Love BECAUSE MICHELLE DIDN’T SEE HIM OFF AT THE AIRPORT and….the Cyprus financial crisis shwos that people can rise up against their opressors and…something about the Saudis and Global Entry…and, oh yes, a post about how “We” revolted against King John and won the Magna Carta. But no mention of her latest smackdowns by Judge England.

    I should add that Linda Jordan said that she will return the extra money she took in, but she seems to think it will take her several days to do the math involved. My 5th grade daughter could do the math for Linda in a few minutes, but Linda’s a birfer so she undoubtedly resides on the left tail of the bell curve.

    Cracked bell. No clapper.

    I speculate that the AG decided that making her hire an attorney and have him admit the appeal was frivolous together with $3500 in fees was adequate punishment. They can close the case and go forward with serious work rather than wasting more of the WA Supreme Court’s time. They don’t know Birfers though. The adage that no good deed goes unpunished was never more true than with public servant dealing with Birfers.

    This is similar to how the 3rd Circuit handled Apuzzo. They put the fear of god into him with an OSC and had him write a long response. Then they discharged the order for monetary sanctions. That was the last time the 3rd Circuit has been graced with anything from Apuzzo or Kerchner so at least that one time it worked.

    “‘Twas a famous victory.”

    However, they do have an admission that the suit was frivolous, so the next time Ms. Jordan sues, they can brandish admission in her face.

    Not that she will get the point, though, but it will stick in her craw.

    Some of the inmates at ORYR seem to think this is a victory, while others are screaming at Jordan to not pay a dime, because doing so is tandem to “admitting defeat”.
