Court watch

Nothing happening here. Move along.

Alabama Supreme Court decisions were announced this past Friday and the McInnish case was not among them, and while we’re on the “Dog bites man” theme, Orly Taitz fizzled in Hawaii.

I read the order from Judge Mollway saying that Taitz had on January 9 withdrawn her request for an emergency stay of the cremation of Loretta Fuddy, which as far as I know was never intended. In any case, the interment of Fuddy is long passed and the business between Taitz and The Hawaiian Memorial Park Mortuary is over. Since the emergency stay was all there was in the original filing, Judge Mollway dismissed it, noting that if Taitz wants to file something else with different defendants, she will have to file a new case (and this means another $400 filing fee). Taitz said that she did not sleep for 48 hours, and this rebuff of her 135 pages and 30 exhibits must have been disheartening, but it appears that the Federal District Court in Hawaii is not going to let Taitz file lawsuits and tie them to different lawsuits under the same case number events pass her by. The transmogrified lawsuit is directed at the Inspector General of the US Postal Service, where again Taitz wants to be able to present her arguments and zibits to a grand jury, and of course Taitz is already suing the Postal Service

There is of course another reason why any court action regarding the disposition of Loretta Fuddy’s body is moot (at least according to the birthers) because she is still alive and in the federal witness protection program according to commenters at the Taitz site.

Taitz had another reading comprehension failure. Here’s the headline from her web site [link to Taitz web site] regarding the Taitz v. Colvin FOIA lawsuit.

Press release: after Judge Hollander denies motion for summary judgment by the SSA, the feds are replacing the attorney on the case

Well it is true that the government did switch attorneys, but here’s the misunderstanding from the order she linked to:

1. Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss (ECF 7) is GRANTED, without prejudice and with leave to amend;

2. Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment (ECF 9) is DENIED, without prejudice;

3. Plaintiff shall have 21 days from the docketing of this Order to file a second amended complaint.

It wasn’t the SSA who moved for summary judgment and lost, but Taitz. The government moved for a dismissal of the amended complaint, which was granted. Maybe she should get more sleep.

    She doesn’t know the difference between the plaintiff and the defendant… IN A CASE SHE FILED??

    Performance art. HAS to be.

    Yup. Like forever.

    Orly’s reading comprehension is on par with her legal skills…

    I can only assume that William Howard Taft Mail Order Law School does not require students to demonstrate proficiency in reading comprehension before handing out diplomas.

    The Taft School of Law must be soooooooooooo proud!

    It leads us to wonder, if Howard Taft University creates more degree-granting schools for “professionals” like Orly, could we see them also turn out aeronautical engineers who cannot distinguish between up and down?

    The spectacle of her burgeoning incompetence at providing the most basic legal services or objectively interpreting legal matters, defies any reasonably well-intended expectation the Framers could have had in mind for how adequately citizens of the republic would likely be represented by lawyers in the courtrooms the Framers contemplated for the judicial branch.

    In fact, Orly is more reasonably understood as a potentially Cold War winning weaponized pair of brain cells dropped initially on the United States by the former Soviet Union during a purge aimed primarily at eliminating multilingual screeching.

    It is not possible to be so stupid as to think that the Judge ordered you to file a new complaint. It cannot be possible to be so stupid as to think that while you lost, the winner was ordered to pay costs. It cannot be possible to be so stupid as to think that the government’s summary judgment motion was denied when you are the one who filed a summary judgment motion.

    This is not a problem of going to a mail order school or being a foreigner by birth with a different background and approach to reading comprehension.

    This is mental illness, combined with just plain meanness.

    Yep. Which is why I try not to ridicule her. (And often fail.) I don’t think she can help herself. But nonetheless, her assault on reason and her terrorizing people, such as those mourning the loss of Loretta Fuddy, make it really difficult for me to have any compassion for her. In fact, I don’t. But I do pity her children growing up with a such a disturbed and vile mother.

    There’s still the theory that she somehow “snapped” one day (because that would explain how she passed the bar exam *and* her medical studies – she did that when her mind was still working fine). Who knows? There are stories of people who got hit in the head and suddenly had a totally different personality.

    No, but she could be doing that on purpose. After all, she has followers to keep, and those will come back more often if she can make promises as to the future. Telling her followers “the judge wants me to file more stuff” sounds more promising than telling them “the judge told me ‘no’ but I will try again”.

    Dr. Taitz is now getting ready to terrorize survivors of the plane crash.

    I don’t subscribe to the notion that I have to treat mentally ill people differently. Her family needs to rein her in. It is not acceptable to let her wander about causing distress in the people she interacts while throwing up their hands.

    Could she have meant “summary judgement [of] the SSA”? As in [against]?

    I’m just wondering if this might be the kind of grammar problem non-native English speakers often make with prepositions.

    Andrew Morris January 13, 2014 at 10:19 am #

    It could be language thing, though as she is always making quite basic mistakes, it’s as likely that she doesn’t take time to read properly. Whatever the explanation, it defies understanding how she passed her law exams. And why the CA Bar hasn’t intervened.

    Aren’t those 21days already passed? Did she file an amended complaint?

    Edit…..didn’t want to visit her site but just noticed elsewhere that she says she did.

    Assuming she managed to get it right this time….no doubt SSA will now show how their search was indeed adequate and it will be dismissed again

    How many cases has she filed in Hawaii now?

    At what point would it be appropriate for Hawaii to move to have her declared a ‘vexious litigant (my brain is preventing me from spelling that correctly this morning)

    Just to confirm … and because I don’t care to touch a massive file from Taitz’s domain … she’s basically trotting around the same pile of tripe (135pgs / 30 “exhibits”), and stuffing it into every available court inbox and FedEx box she can get her hands on, right?

    That is, besides a possible new front page and a venue-specific rantlet, it’s the same old crap she’s been collating for years?

    sfjeff:

    Taitz has filed in Hawaii:
    1. In state court against the state;
    2. In federal court to “enforce” a subpeona “issued” in one of her D.C. cases; and
    3. In federal court against the mortuary to stop Fuddy’s possible cremation.

    Taitz is threatening to file a fourth, in federal court. If it follows her latest filings (that were tossed within a day), it’ll be a rerun of one of her D.C. cases against the federal government.

    She’s vexilitigous (cue Mary Poppins music).
