When a lawyer files complaints and motions without a reasonable basis for believing that they are supported by existing law or a modification or extension of existing law, that lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law. When a lawyer uses the courts as a platform for a political agenda disconnected from any legitimate legal cause of action, that lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law. When a lawyer personally attacks opposing parties and disrespects the integrity of the judiciary, that lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law. When a lawyer recklessly accuses a judge of violating the Judicial Code of Conduct with no supporting evidence beyond her dissatisfaction with the judges rulings, that lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law. When a lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law, that lawyer ceases to advance her cause or the ends of justice.
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, counsels conduct leading up to that conduct, and counsels response to the Courts 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. Payment shall be made to the United States, through the Middle District of Georgia Clerks Office, within thirty days of todays Order. If counsel fails to pay the sanction due, the U.S. Attorney will be authorized to commence collection proceedings.

Ouch. That’ll leave a mark!
so buckeye is a pro-Obama trooll.
What are Orly’s appeal options? Anyone know??
Isn’t this the same judge who met with the AG Holden before the hearings? At least that is the rumor.
Justice is blind, yea right.
I don’t know if she can appeal. But wait, buckeyed troll has pinged all his obama supporting trolls and they will be glad to tell us.
I still chuckle about what Rep. Rogan said during the House impeachment hearings (of Bill Clinton), paraphrased, “If someone made that argument before me when I was a judge, I’d be on the phone to the State Bar Association inquiring about the status of your law license.”
What is the etiquette in a situation like this? Am I a troll if I troll a troll?
Trolls are fair game on the boards.
OK. I want to do the right thing.
Yup, it's the same one . . . and he's still moody about it. He doesn't realize how fast a SR-71 can fly from DC to Columbus (Georgia).
IS Genoa your last name? I know someone named Genoa.
Genoa is my nom de freep.
I thought that was him. Well we can tell he is open and honest.
Do you think he will get an appointment from dear leader, or just a Larry Sinclair moment in the back of a limo?
Do you live in md?
The court imposed the fine, not BuckeyeTexan.
The Taitz lunatic deserved a spanking. She's an embarrassment.
Hmmm. This Land is a creep. I wonder what constitutes judicial misconduct and if that is a reasonable defense.
