There was a time when this web site was just about all Orly Taitz articles. Lately, though, she just doesn’t get the Obot juices going like she used to. Today was Orly’s big hearing in Indiana, and I must admit I didn’t even look to see what happened until now, which is the last hour of the day. It wasn’t just me. While Orly garnered a few electrons for her appearance in Kansas on Monday, Google news has nothing about her hearing today.
So here’s something. As reported earlier, Orly Taitz and some others filed objections with the Indiana Elections Commission and presented a big pile of papers. The Commission was unsympathetic and rather blunt in their rejection of her nonsense. Orly, of course, sued and the result is a series of complaints in Taitz v. Indiana Elections Commission. Here is the Second Amended Complaint [PDF on Taitz web site].
As with other recent cases, Taitz is escalating by adding defendants and causes of action. In this instance she is adding talk radio host Amos Brown (pictured right) of Indianapolis Christian radio station WTLC for defamation (he reportedly called her a “crazy, bigoted birther”). These defamation charges are very dangerous because of Indiana’s anti-SLAPP legislation that can make a plaintiff pay all of the defense costs of a frivolous defamation suit.
Orly was admitted as an attorney for this case pro hac vice. Some anti-birthers attended the hearing and you can read their reports of Orly’s loss at the Preliminary Injunction here, as well as listen to them at Reality Check Radio, which had an excellent program with legal analysis this evening that those interested will want to listen to.
If it is a legitimate frivolous lawsuit, the courts have ways to shut that whole thing down.
