Posted on 04/09/2010 12:10:16 PM PDT by Elderberry
On April 6, 2010, Dr. Orly Taitz filed an intervener motion to petition the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Florida, to participate in the declaratory judgment action before that court by 13 state Attorneys General. Taitz made her motion as a Plaintiff of Right, or alternatively, with the Courts permission. The thirteen plaintiffs are suing the Obama regime on the grounds that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (the health care bill) violates the Constitutions Commerce Clause at Article I, Section 8.
However, on April 8, senior federal judge for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida Roger Vinson denied Taitzs request for several reasons, stating that Whether to grant permissive intervention is left to the discretion of the district court. He also wrote that the representation by the Attorneys General must be deemed adequate in regard to their lawsuit against the health care bill.

Who could’ve seen this coming? Seriously, who?
I thought it was 18 states?
I think you are right. It was 13 at the start. Then 5 more States joined.
No surprise here —
Do not mistake Orly Taitz for those with integrity and competence within the movement for Constitutional justice regarding Barry Soetoro.
“Who couldve seen this coming? Seriously, who?”
I concur with the judge that the AGs probably have the smarts to handle this one on their own. I would hate to risk having Orly Taitz screw things up on a procedural gaffe. Yes, she has worked tirelessly on the birther thing. But from my perspective, her repeated gaffes and failure to get any momentum with even one of the suits she’s filed is getting tiresome.
Having done much to allow people to dismiss concerns over 0bama’s natural born citizenship status as the realm of a nutcase and incompetent; now she wants to do the same for Constitutional challenges to Health Care ‘reform’.
Sometimes someone who you think is ‘on your side’ no matter how heartfelt their conviction, is actually ‘de facto’ working for the other side.
Taintz had crossed that threshold a looooooong time ago.
I don’t see her remaining a lawyer for very long.
For the love of all that is good, please keep Orly Taitz far away from legitimate health care lawsuits for she will surely screw them up for everyone. Let real attorneys handle these cases. Orly can go back to submitting Kenyan birth certificates, AOL polls and Obama’s various social security numbers in any other courtroom that will indulge her.
Well for now, I think She’s only being indulged in Judge Lamberth’s courtroom.
Geez, She is nothing if not persistent, And somewhat incompetent.
If she's not working for the Obama administration, she should be. If I was Obama, I'd pay her $20,000 fine out of my own pocket just to make sure she doesn't go away.
I guess all the Obama Enablers will be happy with this result
I’m sure Orly will somehow claim victory, after all she escaped without being sanctioned.
For these reasons, Dr. Taitz's motion to intervene (doc. 17) must be, and is, DENIED.
DONE and ORDERED
It's always entertaining to watch Orly Taitz make an ass out of herself.
Obama himself is certain to be disappointed.
No, I’m sure the Obamabots are saddened by this decision. They were surely hoping that Lady Liability would be allowed to single-handedly taint the credibility of Obamacare opponents.
You can see them congregate right here on this thread.
