Judge Land Fines Orly Taitz $20K, File Copy of Order with State Bar of CA
United States District Court (Georgia) ^ | 10/13/2009 | Judge Clay Land

Posted on 10/13/2009 7:45:31 AM PDT by BuckeyeTexan

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 judge’s 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.

-snip-

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. Payment shall be made to the United States, through the Middle District of Georgia Clerk’s Office, within thirty days of today’s Order. If counsel fails to pay the sanction due, the U.S. Attorney will be authorized to commence collection proceedings.

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 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.”

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).

Do you think he will get an appointment from dear leader, or just a Larry Sinclair moment in the back of a limo?

Let the record reflect that a birther cast the first stone on this thread, as usual, and that said birther is using standard trolling tactics to disrupt and redirect discussion on the thread.

I thought Taitz is a she? But with the way she is so effectively discrediting her movement, Obama should appoint her to an ambassadorship, at least.

As a national leader in the so-called "birther movement," Plaintiff’s counsel has attempted to use litigation to provide the "legal foundation" for her political agenda. She seeks to use the Court's power to compel discovery in her efforts to force the President to produce a "birth certificate" that is satisfactory to herself and her followers.

To produce a birth certificate to demonstrate his constitutional qualifications . . . not unlike any other job applicant or aspiring Little Leaguer. Yes, quite unreasonable and a waste of the court’s time.

This will give Orly legal grounds to obama’s records. I don’t understand it, but have read lawyers explaining this
is actually a good thing. Orly is no fool, and she has many
lawyers assisting her.
all you who love the messiah, why is obongo keeping all his records under lock and key??
GO ORLY GO

"Trolls are fair game on the boards."

Folks need to quit yelling “TROLL” every time they’re challenged. Whether implicit or explicit. It’s tiresome.

Instead of arguing pertinent legal authority supporting her position, counsel reverted to “press conference mode,” repeating political "talking points" that did not answer the Court's questions or address the Court's concerns. Specifically, counsel was unable to explain why this Court should not abstain from deciding this case based upon well-established precedent, and she was unable to articulate clearly how the alleged "cloud" on the President's place of birth amounted to a violation of her client's individual constitutional rights. Rather than address these two important questions, counsel retreated to her political rhetoric. When the Court admonished her for not addressing the legal issues presented by her Complaint, counsel accused the Court of unfairly badgering her and implored the Court to ask Defendants' counsel questions instead of her. Ms. Taitz's performance confirmed to the Court that her focus was not to pursue a legitimate legal cause of action to obtain relief for her client but was to use the Court to force the President to produce a "birth certificate" satisfactory to her and her followers. Her other purpose appeared to be to use litigation as a means of drawing attention to her political agenda. During the hearing, Plaintiff's counsel threatened that if she did not get the opportunity to obtain the relief she sought (discovery of a birth certificate), then a wave of subsequent similar actions would be filed in this Court until she obtained what she wanted.

~ Judge Clay Land

Sounds to me like Judge Land has accurately pegged Orly Taitz and her legal freak show. She's all about the attention and never about serving her clients. She should be disbarred.
