California lawyer Orly Taitz attempted to speak to the State Objections Board on Sept. 17 on the subject of President Barack Obama's candidacy in Kansas. But the board adjorned without giving her a chance to be heard after ruling it had no reason to keep Obama off the Kansas ballot. California lawyer Orly Taitz attempted to speak to the State Objections Board on Sept. 17 on the subject of President Barack Obama's candidacy in Kansas. But the board adjorned without giving her a chance to be heard after ruling it had no reason to keep Obama off the Kansas ballot.
A California lawyer who earlier this week failed to convince the State Objections Board to keep President Barack Obamas name off the Kansas general election ballot filed suit Thursday in Shawnee County seeking an emergency stay of the boards action.
Orly Taitz, who wasnt allowed to speak to the State Objections Board on Monday when it officially placed Obama on the November ballot, said her suit was filed on the behalf of a client she identified only as Mr. Walters, a citizen of Kansas.
In a statement on her website, Taitz said the suit filed Thursday afternoon, which names Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach as the defendant, would challenge the boards decision on what she called overwhelming evidence of the elections fraud by Mr. Obama.
Taitz claims the president has engaged in identity fraud in the use of forged identification papers, including a Connecticut Social Security number not issued to him, and is using a last name that isnt legally his.
Plaintiffs are seeking an emergency preliminary injunction keeping Mr. Obama off the general election ballot until the original identification papers are finally produced and examined by experts, Taitz said in a statement.
A hearing was scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Oct. 3 before Shawnee County District Court Judge Larry Hendricks, Taitz said.
In an interview with The Topeka Capital-Journal, Taitz said she came to Topeka on Monday after learning of the challenge to Obamas candidacy filed by a Manhattan man, Joe Montgomery, who claimed the president wasnt a natural-born citizen.
The State Objections Board comprised of Kobach, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, all Republicans heard Montgomerys concern in a Sept. 13 meeting, after which it announced it wouldnt certify Obamas place on the Kansas ballot until examining birth certificate information from Hawaii.
Montgomery a day later asked for his objection to be withdrawn, saying he faced intimidation directed not only at me, but at people around me.
In a short hearing Monday, Kobach said the objections board had examined documents from Hawaii and found no reason not to put Obamas name on the ballot.
Taitz asked to speak before the board but was denied the opportunity. She claimed Kobach and the board erred in allowing Montgomery to withdraw his complaint.
The evidence was not heard by the secretary of state, she said in a telephone interview Thursday.
The plaintiff, Mr. Joseph Montgomery, has stated he was intimidated, he was harassed. In legal terms, what happened to him is duress, Taitz said. If he withdraws under duress, and this was a clear case of duress, his withdrawal is not valid. The secretary of state made a clear mistake in not recognizing he was under duress.
Taitz attempted to present her argument to media gathered outside the hearing room at the Statehouse. She was ordered to leave by security officers after she became involved in a heated argument with another man. The verbal confrontation continued outside on the Statehouse grounds.
It is indicative of a defective legal system which put's precedence before common sense and the facts. It makes it more understandable how such a system can come up with the logical absurdities such as Roe, and Kelo, and Wickard, and Lawrence v Texas.
But you go ahead and keep on telling us all about how it is the dedicated albeit bumbling lawyer that is causing all the problems. When the Anchor baby coalition has voted themselves everything you thought you owned, you can be reassured by the knowledge that at least all your losses occurred in accordance with the natural progression of precedent's of which you approved.
Amazing how many people on this thread hate Orly. The man in Kansas withdrew his complaint because he and those around him were harassed - intimidated! No on mentions that, the idiots just like to pile on Taitz; too bad she’s not a “real” lawyer like Saint Roberts, who just sold us all into slavery.
It is also demonstrative of a defective legal system when one's acting ability is the determining factor for success. One would think that a properly functioning system would work by a presentation of facts and logical arguments rather than who can be the most suave and witty while presenting paperwork of the appropriate degree of floweryness.
In Engineering, anyone can do the calculations, and the calculations will stand for themselves. It matters not how poorly are the Engineer's social skills, their answer will still be correct when a bravo performance by an Actor will be wrong.
The Legal system obviously operates with a different paradigm from Engineering. *IT* is incompetent and nonfunctional.
Judge Orders $500,000 in Legal Fees to Transgender Inmate
A transgender inmate may receive more than $500,000 in legal fees after a judge ordered the state of Massachusetts to pay for her gender reassignment surgery.
Michelle Kosilek's request for gender reassignment surgery, was granted with a landmark decision by U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf earlier this month. Wolf now also says that Kosilek's legal fees, an estimated $500,000 or more, should also be paid by the state.
We get Judicial rulings like this, and you call Orly the clown?
This is exactly correct. Procedure is the most important thing to them. Results are irrelevant. It's a good thing they aren't scientists. They would blow themselves up.
And this is an excellent point. We should stop talking as if there were any standards to be on the supreme court. Orly is far better qualified than 4 of the Judges currently on it.
I've read enough of her paranoid psychotic rantings on her website to know she possesses neither common sense nor facts. She's a Prison Planet Konspiracy Kook. She commands her Flying Monkeys to dig up dirt on anyone she perceives as an enemy, whether it's Larry Klayman, judges, law clerks or one of her political opponents running against her in California.
She is the official spokesmodel for "Conservatives are Crazy Conspiracists". It wouldn't surprise me if Axelrod signs her paychecks.
Again, if the system were functional, a court could look at the reasonable points she brings forth and render a decision on those, not her antics. Unfortunately the courts suffer from a pervasive ignorance on this subject.
Did you mean:
It's to bad they aren't scientists. They would blow themselves up.
Doesn’t look like any states will end up keeping him off the ballot.
Shows them up to be wusses like yourself does it?
The constant parade of whiners that show up on Orly's threads to complain about her lack of lawyerly skills are still firmly planted on their arses, on the sideline. Never once have I seen any suggestion by the ones that can criticize her, ever suggest that thy would help her out.
You are about as conservative as Ted Olsen.
Thanks for the ping!
