Orly refuses to pay sanctions (updated)

Orly Taitz, DDS, Esq

Orly Taitz, DDS, Esq

“I have filed an appeal”

In an article in yesterday’s Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, attorney (for the moment) Orly Taitz told an interviewer that she had no intention of paying the sanctions ordered by the federal district court in Columbus, GA.

Taitz really should hire an attorney who would tell her that just filing an appeal doesn’t stay the order of sanctions (unless she has posted bond, which seems unlikely).

“He imposed those sanctions to silence me,” Taitz said. “If judges start punishing attorneys, then we end up in a totalitarian regime. This can’t go on.”

Oh well, the U. S. Attorney is now authorized to start collection proceedings. Orly may shortly learn that not even attorneys are above the law in this country.

Update! It has been confirmed that Orly Taitz did not pay the sanctions and the court has ordered the U. S. Attorney to collect the money.

    I applaud every step taken by whatever powers that be to drive her and her birther colleagues out of the practice of law entirely.

  2. misha says:

    I believe she had to post a bond with the appeal, so she loses. I’m just concerned with violence when the marshals confiscate.

    They can confiscate her bank accounts, her car, and her dental practice. If her home is “tenants by the entirety,” that cannot be touched.

    She’ll exhort her cultists to use violence against the government. So, will she flee to Israel? She’s finished here.

  3. misha: I believe she had to post a bond with the appeal, so she loses….

    I am not aware that any appeal has been filed, only a notice of appeal.

  4. euphgeek says:

    Man, I would love to see the look on Orly’s face when the U.S. Attorney starts those collection proceedings. Maybe she’ll find out when she goes into her dental office and gets told by a man in a dark suit with sunglasses, “I’m sorry, ma’am, but you no longer own this business. It belongs to the government now. Also the car you drove here in.”

    (Not sure if that’s how it really happens, but I can dream, can’t I?)

  5. gwen says:

    I’m waiting to see what it will take to have her disbarred in CA!!Is she licensed to practice law in any other state??

  6. wendy says:

    “He imposed those sanctions to silence me,” Taitz said. “If judges start punishing attorneys, then we end up in a totalitarian regime. This can’t go on.”

    oh, it must go on. What would I do without the occasional pearls of wisdom like this from Orly, to laugh at?
    Farah or someone MUST BE paying her kazillions of rubles to create these incomprehensible tidbits. You don’t expect Joe the Plumber to grasp what the legal system is. Why there are rules of attorney conduct and ethics.
    But you expect a LAWYER to understand the nuance of a Judge telling you that you screwed up, big time. And WHY.
    Its the LAW, Orly, baby. You DO NOT GET to use the courts for hoaxes or practice in creative law making 101.

  7. Lupin says:

    I couldn’t agree more. Maybe because I’m old(ish) and crotchety, but I find myself totally lacking in sympathy and patience for attorneys who willfully engage in such shenanigans.

    I’m not saying they can’t express their opinions, distribute pamphlets or organize their own loonie party, but our courts shouldn’t be cluttered with such rubbish.

    (And I say this as someone who is in favor of the recent French prosecutions against a number of very high ranking politicians, including former President Chirac.)

  8. wendy says:

    which is one of the statements Land made… Orly is free to speak what she thinks, in public, as freedom of speech. The minute she walks through that door AS A LAWYER, the standards are raised. All of which are clearly stated in Professional Ethics standards, and all of which are part of having a license to practice law. Needless to say, understanding authority of any judge, has to be high on the list.
    I got brave and wandered over to her den of lies, and see that she wants to argue that it was Judge Land who is discriminating, on (get this) political persecution.

  9. wendy says:

    myself, I would prefer that her public statements and refusal, could hopefully bring down contempt charges, and time in jail.

  10. MsDaisy says:

    Okay, I have a question, isn’t it possible that if she “still” continues to try and fight this non-fight and continues to deny BO’s eligibility while making outrageous accusations against every authority in this country, can’t the courts order her to have a mental exam? I had a patient once that was bulimic, (adult female, 53” tall and weighed 72 lbs) and the courts ordered her to have a mental exam, and ordered her to report in to be weighed every week. It’s obvious that Orly is in serious need of some kind of mental assistance, but I doubt she will seek it on her own.

  11. Take a look at my recently updated Media page. Orly is our primary source of news items!

  12. No, Orly Taitz is licensed only in California, and the fact that she has not graduated from an ABA accredited law school would prevent her from becoming licensed anywhere else.

  13. misha says:

    I would like to mention that I wrote at the beginning, she would refuse to pay the fine.

    So, what happens next?

  14. John says:

    Well, in Orly’s eye she has filed an appeal and doesn’t have to pay. If the Judge tries to send his cronies to get her, Orly won’t go quietly. Nevetheless, Orly may feel the need to keep a small force nearby to insure that no one makes a move on her. Orly has due process. She doesn’t have to pay until SCOTUS eventually denies her Writ. I guess this reasoning is in the eyes of Orly.

  15. John says:

    Orly needs to take measures to start locking down her assets protect them from corrupt judges.

  16. aarrgghh says:

    and true believers are not only unperturbed, they’re emboldened!

    this case is playing out exactly as orly planned it. she’ll appeal and stall on paying the fine until we have a new president-elect in 2012, then the fine will be dropped. meanwhile she gets lots of free advertising. i suspect the judge and the DOJ are underestimating her. i predict the DOJ and this judge will never get a nickel out of her.

    palin-bachmann 2012!

  17. richCares says:

    “emboldened”, is that a synonym for “delusioned”

  18. G says:

    I’ve been wondering about this for some time myself. Clearly, her mental state is questionable at best. I’ve always felt she’s destined to end up locked up somewhere for criminal insanity.

  19. Low Rider says:

    Interesting that the final judgment doesn’t mention anything about post-judgment interest. Does interest accrue automatically on federal judgments? In Florida, the court usually specifies the interest rate in the judgment itself.

  20. G says:

    I too would like to know more about the process of collection that they can use in this jurisdiction and if issues such as accruing interest or seizures/impounding can be applied.

    Does anyone have any experience with these matters or an answer for how this will likely play out?

  21. Low Rider says:

    These folks have been taking lessons from Baghdad Bob.

  22. Lupin says:

    Mark my words, we haven’t seen nothing yet.

    I have never seen a lunatic gets better, only worse.

    Get ready for DAWN OF ORLY.

  23. Jim Deese says:

    To answer the question about how the Government starts collection. First it must obtain a certified copy of the Judge Land’s Nov. 13 judgment and file it with the Californian Superior Court for the county where Orly resides. The Govt. then must wait thirty days (assuming the Uniform Transfer of Foreign Judgments Act applied in California. After thirty-days the Government may file a praecipe (legalese for a written request) with the County Sheriff, to go to Orly’s home and seize for levy and sale her automobiles, appliances, tv’s , jewelry and any other item of value she may have. Orly then would have the opportunity to request a hearing to determine exemptions, which given her lack of understanding of the civil rules, she is unlikely to file in the proper manner. After hearing, the sheriff is then authorized to sell, at public auction, any unexempted property, the proceeds from which are used to satisfy the judgments.

  24. Chris says:

    She does not have to post a bond in order to appeal. However, in order to stay enforcement of the judgment pending her appeal, she has to post a bond.

    BTW, filing a notice of appeal IS filing an appeal. It’s the step that transfers jurisdiction (with limited exceptions, such as the enforcement of judgment) from the district court to the Circuit Court of Appeal.

  25. nBc says:

    On Politijab.com, Butterfly Bilderberg explains

    The purpose of the bond is to stay collection efforts while the appeal is pending. If Orly does not pony up the $20,000 the appeal will continue (unless the Eleventh Circuit mandates that Orly post a bond) but collection efforts will be initiated.

    The Department of Justice Office of Debt Collection Management has responsibility for collecting civil and criminal fines and debts, and uses the United States Attorneys and five litigating divisions** within the DOJ as well as contracts with private law firms to assist in this effort in certain districts (the U.S. Department of Justice Private Counsel Program).

    The good news for Orly is that a payment plan can be arranged through the Nationwide Central Intake Facility (NCIF) –the intake point for civil debts less than $1 million — which accepts checks and money orders, checks drawn on foreign banks (Israel?), electronic funds transfers, and payments by credit card. Collection also is accomplished through Treasury Offset Payments, i.e., grabbing tax refunds. (Orly and Yosef may want to adjust their withholding.)

    If voluntary payments are not forthcoming, and those demanding letters and nagging phone calls from collectors don’t do the trick, the next action is to garnish wages, levy bank accounts, lien assets and, ultimately, initiate foreclose proceedings in state court.

  26. SFJeff says:

    Oh John…”If the Judge tries to send his cronies to get her, Orly won’t go quietly.”

    I have never heard of Judge employing cronies. But one thing you are very correct on- Orly won’t go quietly- she will be spouting off insane rhetoric no matter what.

  27. nBc says:

    I guess this reasoning is in the eyes of Orly.

    Yes, her legal reasoning is not really that strong.

  28. nBc says:

    And yes, Orly has due process rights such as

    1. Filing a bond
    2. Filing a petition to stay the sanctions

    But that may all be too late now.

  29. nBc says:

    Orly should start to learn more about the Court Rules and follow them.

    Just a thought. As to corrupt judges, I hear you, luckily there are none involved in her cases as far as I can tell.

    Do you have any evidence to the contrary?

    I thought so.

  30. Rickey says:

    Fortunately the Feds have never come after me so I have no personal knowledge, but there may be a statutory interest rate which would make it unnecessary for the judge to mention it in the judgment.

  31. Chris says:

    Post judgment interest accrues automatically. See 28 USC section 1961.

  32. misha says:

    Thanks for the info.

  33. John says:

    Orly might want to file a civil suit under Common Law against Judge Land over the Sanction.

    If she does, she automatically gets a Jury Trial:


    Amendment 7 – Trial by Jury in Civil Cases. Ratified 12/15/1791.

    In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

  34. nBc says:

    Orly might want to file a civil suit under Common Law against Judge Land over the Sanction.

    A judge is immune from such lawsuits, for obvious good reasons.
    So much for our amateur lawyer.

  35. wendy says:


    Is much of this, uncharted territory? Are the rules for sanctions, the same as in a criminal case? It can be argued that she did not commit a crime, but defied the legal authority and violated professional rules.
    But.. clearly it has been shown over and over, that she DOES NOT COMPREHEND what has happened. Land ruled that not only does he have no authority on a military dispute, but that THE SO CALLED FACTS BEHIND THE REFUSAL, WERE FRIVOLOUS, if not fabricated.
    Well.. we all knew that to start with, and she should have had the capacity to know it as well. NOT KNOWING what is factual, is a part of the professional ethics. There was no REASONABLE inquiry.
    And she (and groupies) still argue that ANY lawyer has the right to file a lawsuit, even when the world knows clearly that it is based in a hoax. We also understand that Judges have the authority to throw such cases in the gutter, where they belong.

    But.. my question is, since it is not a criminal charge against Orly, does she have the same rights to appeal, etc?

  36. euphgeek says:

    That, too.

  37. thisoldhippie says:

    Further, even if a such a suit were allowed – the discovery would be with regards to Orly’s conduct, not Obama’s eligibility.

  38. SFJeff says:

    I don’t know about corrupt judges but what can be done about all the corrupt bithers?

  39. elmo says:

    Orly thinks she filed an appeal, but like everything else she does as a lawyer, she’s apparently screwed this up as well.


  40. NbC says:

    No no, she did file an appeal and Jonathan Levy ‘entered’ as her laywer. The Appeal has been filed, just not a 1) appeals bond 2) request for stay of sanctions.

  41. euphgeek says:

    Once when I worked in the call center for a bank, a woman called in upset that we had taken money out of her account because of a judgment entered against her. She said that she still had time to appeal the decision. I patiently informed her that we still had to abide by the judgment. She hung up, but she was not happy.

    I’m thinking that whoever the person is at Orly’s bank who takes her call is going to need much more patience than I did.

  42. MsDaisy says:

    Do ya think?

  43. MsDaisy says:

    Okay, help me out here for a second. (I’m a nurse, not a lawyer) So the motion she filed, was not the proper one she was meant to file to keep her from being required to pay that fine by yesterday? In other words, she f*kd up (yet) again? So what did she file?

  44. Chris says:

    Filing a notice of appeal does not stay enforcement of the judgment against her. She needs to file a supersedeas bond or get a stay from the district court or Circuit Court of Appeal to stay enforcement pending appeal.

    Technically, her appeal may have been filed early, because final judgment was just entered and she did not have to appeal until after it was entered. In those circumstances the notice of appeal is deemed filed directly after entry of final judgment. FRAP 4(a)(2).

  45. 40 Year Attorney says:

    I think Orly better be getting ready to pay!

  46. Rickey says:

    Orly needs to take measures to start locking down her assets protect them from corrupt judges.

    Not a good idea. Done after a judgment has been entered, that would most likely be found to be a fraudulent transfer and would expose Orly to even more penalties.

  47. There is no motion I know of that would prevent her from having to pay (or at least post bond), except a plea to the judge for mercy.

  48. Rickey says:

    Some of Orly’s “friends” on Facebook have just come to the realization that Orly has refused to pay the $20K even though many of them made contributions to her specifically to help her pay the fine.

  49. Rita says:

    There are some hilarious comments on her Facebook wall from Charles Lincoln himself, as well as Phil Berg, and her “friends” are now trying to take down Mr. Lincoln because he “aired the dirty laundry” in his affidavit. Time to get the popcorn!

  50. milspec says:

    Sort of the same thing happened to me. I got hit with a 83% IRS tax lien on my pay check, took me 3 weeks to clear it up (my employer had double reported my income). My employer held the 83% but never sent it to the IRS.

  51. Texlaw says:

    She has the right to appeal the sanctions and the amount thereof. But she will certainly lose. Even with competent counsel (she has hired a nutcase lawyer called Levy to represent her, he is an alum of Taft online law school and appears to be as much of a loser as she) there is no appellate court in the land (no pun intended) that would rule that her behavior and pleadings were not properly sanctionable. Given that she responded to the show cause order by flinging feces at Judge Land, the amount of the sanctions will be upheld as well.

    Anyone who can pay the filing fee can file a law suit. But if it’s frivolous, they open themselves up to sanctions. Just the way it is.

  52. Texlaw says:

    Protect her assets from corrupt Judges?

    First of all, the sanctions are payable to the United States of America, you know, “We The People”. Judge Land is far from corrupt, just because he ruled against you stupid birfers and called Orly on her s*&t doesn’t make him corrupt. It makes him a hero.

    As rightfully noted, if you morans think hiding assets from the US government is a good idea, go ahead and try it.

  53. Texlaw says:

    Actually, it does. The clerk of the court issued the final order, and it assesses interest at .36 percent per annum. It is statutorily set, tied to prevailing interest rates.

  54. Texlaw says:

    In Texas, if the State Bar thinks an attorney is impaired, due to mental illness or substance abuse, there is a procedure whereby the attorney’s practice can be taken over by a receiver. The attorney can contest this, of course, in court, but would have to submit to mental and/or physical exams to rebut the State Bar. Don’t know if CA has a similar procedure, but they certainly should. If anything, her husband should seek a mental evaluation of her. I am not trying to be funny here.

  55. MsDaisy says:

    Hummm, that’s interesting. I just tried to have a look and it seems Ms Orly is no longer on facebook. Or at least I couldn’t locate her when she was easy to find before.

    Okay, do tell, what did Chuckie Boy have to say.

  56. MsDaisy says:

    Well, she has had no mercy in her relentless disrespect and slander of any judge who does not grant her “discovery”, so the probability of finding one to have mercy on her is less than slim.

  57. thisoldhippie says:

    How can Levy represent her in GA? If he has an online degree he cannot sit for our bar either.

  58. auntlollie says:

    re: How can Levy represent her in GA? If he has an online degree he cannot sit for our bar either.

    He is apparently a member of the California bar and, as such, can (in generally) appear as someone’s counsel in federal district courts.

  59. nbc says:

    Only if he can find local counsel in GA.

  60. auntlollie says:

    No such requirement exists, that I know of.

    “Attorneys who wish to participate in an appeal must be properly admitted either to the bar of this court or for the particular proceeding pursuant to 11th Cir. R. 46-1, et seq.”

    “Pursuant to Fed.R.App.P. 46(a), to qualify for admission [to the bar of this court] you must be a member in good standing of the bar of the U.S. Supreme Court, another U.S. Court of Appeals, a U.S. District Court, or the highest court of any state.”

  61. I believe Orly Taitz is a member in good standing of the bar of the U. S. Supreme Court.

  62. auntlollie says:

    re: I believe Orly Taitz is a member in good standing of the bar of the U. S. Supreme Court.

    Apparently Jonathan Levy is also . . .

    As well as also a member of the bar of the 11th Circuit.

    None of which gives Orly’s “appeal” any more merit than dried-up spit.

  63. nbc says:

    Ah, I forgot, this is an appeal. The Pro Hac Vice requirement may not apply

    11th Cir. R. 46-4 Pro Hac Vice Admission. An attorney who does not reside in the circuit but is otherwise eligible for admission to the bar pursuant to FRAP 46 and these rules may apply to appear pro hac vice in a particular proceeding. The following items must be provided:

    a completed Application to Appear Pro Hac Vice form, available on the internet at http://www.cal I .uscourts.gov, with proof of service;
    a certificate of good standing issued within the previous six months from the highest court of any state or another United States Court of Appeals; and
    a non-refundable pro hac vice application fee of $50.00, payable to U.S. Court of Appeals, Non-Appropriated Fund, 11th Circuit.

  64. Vince Treacy says:


    It is a pure formality. Be admitted to any bar for 3 years. Have no disciplinary actions. Pay a fee. Get two members as sponsor. Collect sheepskin for wall.

    There is no bar exam for the Supreme Court.

  65. nbc: An attorney who does not reside in the circuit but is otherwise eligible for admission to the bar pursuant to FRAP 46 and these rules may apply to appear pro hac vice in a particular proceeding.

    But Orly Taitz is not eligible for admission to the bar in any state but California because she did not graduate from an ABA accredited law school, a requirement everywhere else.

  66. Expelliarmus says:

    Orly Taitz does not have to be a member of any other state bar to apply for admission to any Federal district or appellate court in the country. So she could apply for admission in the 11th circuit if she wanted to, as long as she remains admitted in California.

  67. Black Lion says:

    It looks like we finally have a CE3 sighting…From Bad Fiction I guess we finally found out why he is no longer working with Orly….maybe good old Lucas Smith was telling the truth about Lincoln banging Orly….Scary and revolting but possibly true…


    “Dr. Taitz was apparently subject to some external threats, which caused her to withdraw (see affidavit of CEL, Exhibit B)”

    “On or about Wednesday October 21, 2009, later on the same day after Robert H. and Marsha G. Rivernider had signed Exhibit A, Dr. Taitz informed me that her husband, Yosef Taitz had threatened/instructed her that if she continued to work with me, and especially if she signed any contracts with me, that he would require her to sign away all of her rights in the family property and estate, a much harsher result that he could have achieved if she (Dr. Orly Taitz) had sought an ordinary judicial divorce from Mr. Yosef Taitz or if he had sought a divorce from her (especially in a community property state).”

    “The uncertainty continued for about two weeks and finally on Wednesday night November 4, 2009, just before 10:00 p.m., Dr. Taitz called me by telephone informed me that she could never ever see me or speak with me or work with me again, that her husband had said terrible things to her.”

  68. Rickey says:

    His full affidavit is here:


    My favorite line is in paragraph 10:

    “Dr. Taitz is perfectly fluent in five languages but English is not one of them.”

  69. misha says:

    I was wondering when they were going to self-destruct. I was also wondering why Taitz’s husband was putting up with this garbage.

    He finally read her the riot act.

  70. Rickey says:

    Lincoln has filed yet another affidavit, this time going into some detail about his affair with Orly.


  71. Preston says:

    Poor little crazy Birthers, Judge Land and now judge Carter, smack down the crazies (case dismissed),

    Not even “Fake News” Bill O’Reilly believes the crazies, how funny.


    To all the birthers in La, La Land, it is on you to prove to all of us that your assertion is true (TOUGH WHEN YOU KEEP LOSING CASES), if there are people who were there and support your position then show us the video (everyone has a price), either put up or frankly shut-up. I heard Orly Taitz, is selling a tape (I think it’s called “Money, Lies and Video tape”). She is from Orange County, CA, now I know what the mean when they say “behind the Orange Curtain”, when they talk about Orange County, the captial of Conspiracy Theories. You know Obama has a passport, he travel abroad before he was a Senator, but I guess they were in on it.

    In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme religious right (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away the rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”.

    I heard that she now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC).
