Continuing our pre-game coverage of Taitz v. Democrat Party of Mississippi, and making a big deal out of the fact that the Taitz team has not even acknowledged that there is going to be a game, I present this countdown timer to the telephonic hearing where Judge Wingate will present his rulings on the outstanding motions, including motions for judgment on the pleadings.
End of countdown reached
One thing I had overlooked in the mass of filings in the case is a request for attorney’s fees and costs by Barack Obama, Obama for America, and Nancy Peolsi. It appeared in their Answer to the complaint.
WHEREFORE, PREMISES CONSIDERED, President Barack H. Obama, II, Representative Pelosi, Democratic Leader of the United States House of Representatives, and Obama For America respectfully request that their foregoing Answer and Affirmative Defenses to Plaintiffs’ First Amended Complaint be received and they hereby move the Court to dismiss Plaintiffs’ claims, with prejudice, to assess all costs of this action to Plaintiffs, and to grant Defendants all such further relief as is deemed just and proper.
Defendants further respectfully request that this court assess attorney’s fees against Plaintiffs pursuant to the Mississippi Litigation Accountability Act of 1988, FED. R. CIV. P. 11 and/or 28 U.S.C. § 1927, for a wholly frivolous, unreasonable, vexatious and malicious complaint.
