Strunk hit with staggering $177,000 legal sanction

I’m going to have this thing overturned and I’m not going to pay a dime.

The New York Daily News reports that the amount of legal sanctions to be imposed on persistent New York litigator Christopher-Earl : Strunk is $177,000, by far the largest birther penalty imposed to date. Strunk is also barred from suing a long list of individuals in the New York Court System.

Prior to this, the birther sanctions record was held by Orly Taitz at $20,000 and $4,000, and seconded by $10,565.23 against the Liberty Legal Foundation and a distant third by Linda Jordan at a reduced amount of $3,500.

Strunk, who lives on a modest retirement income from Social Security has, according to prior court filings, no assets of note.

    Actually, I think Taitz is already poised to upstage Strunk in her Mississippi case.

    Whacha think the damage will be? At least $250k? Or maybe she’ll piss them off so bad that she’ll be banned from the state under penalty of “Shot on sight”.

    Mr. Strunk has posted a comment at ORYR. It is the folk tale “Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby” in which Brer Fox thinks he’s got Brer Rabbit in a fix. Brer Rabbit begs Brer Fox not to throw him in a briar patch. Of course, that’s exactly where the silly fox throws him, and Brer Rabbit gets away, having been born and bred in briars.

    Strunk’s moronic implication is that the nearly $200,000 fine he just received was exactly what he wanted to occur.

    Yes, yes, yes — that Chris Strunk is one smart rabbit all right . . . and one very foolish and pitiably reduced old man.

    On-line degrees have got to go. In our county we had a scandal swept under the rug where the shurf’s deputies were given pay raises for obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in criminal justice (4 years is the norm to obtain a BA in criminal justice) after completing just 22 classes on-line!

    The locals are sick in the head, is my opinion. They are always pontificating about the Kon-sti-tu-shun and they are opposed to Federal government, never realizing that the Feds ARE the Constitution (Supreme law of the land) designed to protect the populace from ignoramus local yokels.

    When he posted here I challenged him about where he really lives, but he never responded.

    I expect Strunk’s sanction to be sharply reduced. That said, I think it still could be hefty enough to really hurt Strunk. Like others have said, he doesn’t give the impression of rolling in dough.
    On another tangent, I have replied to “the man” who posted an apparent offer to help “get rid” of Strunk;s judge. I said there that n one these days should be blithely tossing around comments about “getting rid” of people in the criminal justice system, not when several in Texas and Colorado have been assassinated in recent months.
    Here’s hoping “the man” gets his own personal visit from law enforcement, and that they put the fear of God into him about the finer points of laws against communicating a threat.

    I seem to recall that when Orly’s appeal of her 20K sanction was being discussed the comment was made that she would have to post a bond equal to the value of the sanction in order to appeal, If Strunk appeals will he need to post a bond? If a bond is required and he cannot do it will he be prevented from appealing?

    I expect that this sanction will get cut down, but it will still have an impact on his life. I hope the attorneys entitled to these sanctions go and get them…they have had to waste vast amounts of time and energy on his nonsense, and they deserve compensation.

    For Strunk to stand up and tell that tale to a Brooklyn judge took a lot of nerve…as we see, Brooklyn judges have little time or tolerance for utter nonsense. They deal with harsh realities every single hour.

And given the loopy conspiracies he’s formulated about Obama and the Catholic Church, he’s clearly in his dotage.

    It needs to be said that this kind of idiotic lawsuit has real victims. As a New York taxpayer, I object that even a penny of my taxes has to go to defend this crap. More importantly, some real plaintiff with an actual case in which they suffered concrete harm has had to wait just a bit longer for justice because the judge had to hear Strunk’s baloney.

    No doubt true. However, I feel the reason we’re seeing sanctions now is, at least in part, due to the history of birther suits over these past few unsactioned years. Birther litigants no longer have any excuse for not knowing their cases are frivolous, thanks to the now-large volume of birther legal failings. This gives judges more ammunition to say “You knew this was garbage, now you have to pay.”

    If so, he is violating election laws by being registered to vote in Brooklyn. He has to register in the precinct where he actually resides, not simply where his mailbox is located. When he was here I asked him several times why he is registered to vote at a mail drop address, but he ignored my questions.

    Lest we be too hard on the databases, they also contain much information which is accurate. Real investigators know that the databases provide leads, not answers. The information has to be independently correlated and verified, something which Orly has never been interested in doing.

    I suspect the marshal won’t find much to seize besides Strunk’s next appeal paperwork.

    I think the next punishment if he continues to sue people he’s barred from suing, is that the court might simply find him a vexatious litigant. Which essentially means he can’t file anything with the court. If you can’t file, you can’t sue.

    Doesn’t it rather mean you need the court’s permission before you can file an actual suit?

    Anything else would make the person outlawed because I could just defraud poor Strunkie in NY and he couldn’t sue me.

    So he could still file applications for permission, but I guess the court can then sanction him for filing frivolous applications.

    The practical difference is that such an application does not need feedback from the party the vexatious litigant is trying to sue, thus taking away the burden from the former to reply, pay his lawyer etc.

    That’s pretty much how it works. Any time he would want to sue someone, he has to a motion for leave of the court to file his complaint. The motion would have attached to it a copy of what he intended to file. If it was more of his crazy, the court would just deny his motion, that would be the end it. His putative defendant would never need to file anything or spend a dime defending himself against the crazy.

    Reality Check April 15, 2013 at 2:41 pm #

    Strunk was interviewed on “Live and Let Live with Gary Johnson” on the Logos Radio Network yesterday. He is on during the second hour of this podcast. http://mp3.logosradionetwork.com/LLL/16k/LLL_2013-04-14_16k.mp3

    Strunk is a nut of course. He said that it was a victory that only 3 of 9 law firms submitted fees or the award would have been higher.

    So that’s the game now? See who can rack up the most sanctions for pouring sewage into the justice system?

    Civic minded patriots indeed.

    So “we only lost 0-54, they missed ten field goals, so we actually won” is the new “we won” in birtherstan? Caltech Beavers FTL!

    Tht is a novel definition of the word “victory” indeed.

    Strunk comes across as mentally unbalanced, sort of like the folks handing out greasy leaflets about lizard people in subway stations.

    It’s always astonishing (to me) that these folks are listened to (admittedly by a fringe) and not widely ridiculed.
