Christopher-Earl: Strunk is a conspiracy theorist, and a passionate one whose beliefs have led him to take to the courts. In one particular case, Strunk v. NY State Board of Elections, he ran into trouble in the form of sanctions.
While federal defendants cannot recover legal fees in the cases they defend, state defendants and individuals may. We saw this with an award of almost $13,000 in Washington State of Jordan v. Reed (being appealed). However, with no less than 9 law firms defending an array of defendants from Boehner to Brzezinski to the Jesuits in the Strunk case, anticipated costs could far surpass anything in Jordan (I haven’t seen a number yet). The court also ordered that Strunk not be allowed to file more lawsuits in New York against a long list of defendants.
Today is the deadline for Strunk to file his brief in an appeal of the trial court’s decision and sanctions order. The documents in the case (below) have some high comedic moments as they romp over the conspiracy landscape, of which Manchurian Candidate Soebarkah (a.k.a. Barry Soetoro, Barack Hussein Obama II, and Steve Dunham) is just one small part.
