This is one of the funniest filings I have ever read. Not that I read (or understand) a lot of these, but this is so non-legal-ese, so petulant, stupid and self-referential as to be good comedy.
First, she filed a bunch of ‘birther soldier’ lawsuits that claimed… Obama was not President–> not Commander-in-Chief–> unable to issue valid orders–> her soldier clients aren’t bound to serve in the current military.
An annoyed U.S. District Court Judge, Clay Land, threw the suit(s) out:
First, Plaintiff’s challenge to her deployment order is frivolous. She has presented no credible evidence and has made no reliable factual allegations to support her unsubstantiated, conclusory allegations and conjecture that President Obama is ineligible to serve as President of the United States. Instead, she uses her Complaint as a platform for spouting political rhetoric, such as her claims that the President is “an illegal usurper, an unlawful pretender, [and] an unqualified imposter.”…
Taitz, who clearly does not take her ‘officer of the court’ privelege seriously, ranted publicly:
“…somebody should consider trying [the judge] for treason and aiding and abetting this massive fraud known as Barack Hussein Obama.”
“This is so outrageous what this judge did — it goes in the face of law and order,” said Taitz, reached at her office in Mission Viego, CA. “Not every judge is as corrupt as Judge Land. Some judges believe in the Constitution. And some judges believe in the rule of law.”…
“I’m not afraid of sanctions. Because I know this is not frivolous. I know this is extremely important — the most important issue in this country today.”
“Judge Land is a typical puppet of the regime — just like in the Soviet Union,”
The judge, in a 43 page statement, then sanctioned her $20,000:
Regrettably, the conduct of counsel Orly Taitz has crossed these lines, and Ms. Taitz must be sanctioned for her misconduct. After a full review of the sanctionable conduct, counsel’s conduct leading up to that conduct, and counsel’s response to the Court’s show cause order, the Court finds that a monetary penalty of $20,000.00 shall be imposed upon counsel Orly Taitz as punishment for her misconduct, as a deterrent to prevent future misconduct, and to protect the integrity of the Court.
So, having gotten her butt roundly spanked by the court, has she become chastened? Given up on her angry, ‘frivolous’ attacks? Has she come to realize that her case needs to be far more substantial, far more legally compelling? Has she managed to construct even an ort of an argument on her clients’ behalf? Or found a mote of evidence to give the court any reason to re-consider her case? Or will she just return to blasting the judge for all the awful things he keeps doing to ‘her’? Acting like the unhinged idiot she appears to be?
“…Judge Land’s actions that amounted to misstating or misrepresenting ninety percent of what was presented in the pleadings and arguments, completely ignoring ninety percent of the arguments and facts, making extremely rude and demeaning remarks, showing bias; taken together, appear to be designed to silence her, and intimidate her and above all, punish her for what the Court perceived as political rather than “core” constitutional questions.
Judge Lands remarks amounted to nothing short of a political lynching, which turned into a feast and celebration by the media mob…”
