Guess what guys!
Jennifer Brunner got a judgment against me for court costs in my SoS suit. Don’t know what to do…..Probably thousands of dollars. Any advice? Am about ready to cry.
I suggest that you take responsibility for your actions and not ask for others to bail you out for your frivolous lawsuit. Civil Rights activists were sprayed with fire hoses, attacked by dogs, thrown in prison and many murdered. You don’t seem to have that level of commitment.
I’m glad that the abuse of our court system brings consequences.
What I think is interesting is that there is a article on the Betrayal blog and not one person has made a comment. LOL. Guess they are saving their money to contribute to Doc Orly and Berg.
By court abuse, Doc, do you include the abuse by the courts of the standing mechanism to block adjudication on the merits? Payment of opposition court fees (with ceiling)should be built in to the system up frontas an automatic consequence of losing the case, and not as a matter ofcontestablediscretionary sanction.
Hit & Run, Acourt’s application ofwell-established precedent to a given case does not constitute abuse. There is NO case in the entire history of the US federal courts, that has granted a voting citizen, without more, the right to challenge the eligiblity of a candidate for federal office. EVERY case in the entire history of the US federal courts to consider this issue has held that such plaintiffs do not have standing. That’s not abuse. That’s principled application of well-established law
As for “Payment of opposition court fees (with ceiling)should be built in to the system up frontas an automatic consequence of losing the case, and not as a matter ofcontestablediscretionary sanction.”
Well, in many jurisdictions, it IS built into the system up front – jurisdictions such as Ohio. Check out Ohio RCP 54. It’s there – plain as day.
No I would not include those under the category of abuses. I don’t claim legal expertise in this area, but as a plain citizen, I think there there should be consequences for bringing frivolous or nuisance lawsuits. Without such protections, the lawsuit can be used as a weapon for harassment.

Quote: ” (D) Costs. Except when express provision therefor is made either in a statute or in these rules, costs shall be allowed to the prevailing party unless the court otherwise directs.”
Thank you, Tes.
I agree with such provisions,butthey should be mandatory with ceiling,and notopen to judicial reversal.
In dictatoship no one dare go up against the dictator. Happened when Franco was in power. With Chavez and Castro, and now with the OBAMA government. Just a lesson to use her as a scapegoat. Wonder why Roberts was so nervous on election day that he botched it? Now you know. Our only hope now is the Military Marine Judge in Santa Ana, CA September 8, 2009…
