Thanks to her "frivolous arguments and disrespectful personal attacks" in court, the lawyer who leads the so-called "birther" movement has been slapped with a hefty fine today for abusing her privileges as a lawyer.
In levying sanctions and a $20,000 fine against attorney Orly Taitz, Judge Clay Land wrote that Taitz's most recent court filing, meant to defend herself against sanctions, "is breathtaking in its arrogance and borders on delusional."

“Birther leader Orly Taitz slapped with $20,000 fine”
I have always firmly believed that stupidity should be painful. Hopefully the dumb@ss will learn a lesson. I doubt it but there is always hope.
“FREE THE LONG FORM!”
obama obama mmmmm mmmmm mmmmm!
This judge has been bought paid for by BO’s henchmen. Hopefully she won’t let this fool deter her.
How do I donate to her?
Getting to the truth is hard enough ... having an arrogant psychotic representing the Birthers makes a difficult position nearly impossible.
Why can’t we get an educated, well-spoken, respected, reasonable and sane lawyer to pick the case up?
“Why cant we get an educated, well-spoken, respected, reasonable and sane lawyer to pick the case up?”
Probably because the case has no merit.
Could also be said of those that have spent no inconsiderable amount of money and time these past months to make sure the unvarnished truth, whatever it is, about 0's birth doesn't get out.
followed by this:
Taitz's most recent court filing, meant to defend herself against sanctions, "is breathtaking in its arrogance and borders on delusional."
Is the court going to fine itself $20,000?
I am not sure about Orly Taitz, but the other lawyer I do know of in this situation is Phillip Berg, a former Hillary supporter. I wonder of Taitz is of a similar political persuasion.
i keep thinking she is a plant by the other side.
Who could really be as bad as she is?
Makes for interesting reading about half way through.
This could be great news! Now that she has been sanctioned under Rule 11, she should be entitled to Rule 11 Discovery.
Now that she is entitled to discovery - let us all see the long form!
There is no such thing as "discovery in the appellate courts."
The sanction does not reopen the original case. It is driven by her subsequent conduct, which is obviously indefensible to any competent lawyer. The idea that sanctions are a route to getting Obama’s birth certificate is simply an urban legend perpetrated on these threads.
