JUDGE DENIES Orly Taitz intervener motion to join health care lawsuit
The Post & Email ^ | 4/9/2010 | Kathy Gotto

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 Court’s 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 Constitution’s 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 Taitz’s 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.

I think you are right. It was 13 at the start. Then 5 more States joined.

“Who could’ve 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.

She is just ready to spread her noxious tar over any and every thing isn't she.

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.

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.

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’m sure Orly will somehow claim victory, after all she escaped without being sanctioned.

"Accordingly, in the exercise of my 'sound discretion,' I will deny the request for permissive intervention on the facts of this case. The parties to this litigation, and, indeed, the citizens of this country, have an interest in having this case resolved as soon as practically possible. That task will be made exponentially more difficult if all those who have an opinion and an interest in the outcome of the case were allowed to intervene and to join in these proceedings. Already this court has received many such pro se requests for intervention. Furthermore, with respect to Taitz's motion in particular, I believe the parties to this case and the court should remain focused solely on the legal issues raised by the named plaintiffs, and not concern themselves with collateral issues (such as, for example, whether President Obama has provided sufficient proof of a valid birth certificate).

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.

Looks obvious to me ... on the O-payroll.

Give her some time. She'll probably figure out a way.

Oh, come on. If there is any chance at all to overturn the health care bill, do you really want Orly in the mix? Based on her court presentations to date, do you think she has any ability to help? Can you imagine her doing anything but harm?

This is an important issue, and Orly’s antics are a guaranteed fail.
