Skip to comments.Birthplace lawyer has another suit dismissed
Posted on 04/17/2010 2:06:48 AM PDT by South40
Laguna Niguel attorney Orly Taitz, whos running for California secretary of state, has had another lawsuit thrown out in her effort to have President Barack Obama removed from office. Taitz alleges that Obama cannot legitimately hold the presidency because he is not a natural-born citizen.
After having a case thrown out by District Judge David O. Carter in Santa Ana federal court, Taitz attempted to have the case transferred to federal court in Washington, D.C., claiming that was the proper venue.

What a pity ... lawsuit like that would be worth it.. if ONLY for the ENTERTAINMENT Value!!
I still support Orly and I will vote for her in the upcoming elections.
Because of tenacity :)?

Having just had 5 root canals, the thought of her getting near my roots is just scary..
Amazing how many Americans are still asleep and don't recognize the communist threat that is not only at our door but inside our homes.
LOL. I dunno about her methods (I personally am too uninformed to have a concrete opinion of Ms. Taitz), but her tenacity is second to none! The Founders PLedged their Lives, Fortunes and Sacred Honor for their cause, we don’t see much of that these days.
I’m sure she’ll make a fine CA SOS, once she figures out what the job description is...right now, she seems to think it’s the same job as the Attorney General’s.
“Im sure shell make a fine CA SOS, once she figures out what the job description is...right now, she seems to think its the same job as the Attorney Generals.”
Actually she thought she HAD filed for Attorney General...
Tilting at windmills? Perhaps. Necessary? Yep.
Interesting to note that one Judge says, “this should be refiled quo warranto, in DC”. Then, another judge says, “Nope, don’t think so.” Sounds like the stuff appeals are made of, but I’ll defer to the fine legal minds here, at FR.
I, along with a great many others, have a big issue with the whole ‘standing’ concept. It’s been argued here, ad nauseum, but it still just doesn’t make sense to rational people that a US citizen, or a member of the Armed Forces of the US, or a directly opposed candidate from the same election cycle...not one of them has ‘standing’ to challenge this pretender in the US Court system. It’s simply preposterous. A classic example of the frequent conflict between what is legal and what is right.
The American people are beginning to raise their voices, and the din will be unbearable even at the top of the ivory tower on which the anointed one stands, looking out over the dwindling throng of 0bamunists and other assorted enablers.
It’s time to take back the country. And, every one of these despicable legal shams draws us closer to what should be avoidable, but may become necessary.
Who’s better qualified than a dentist to expose 0bama’s roots? /sarc
These judges are all going to stand naked before The Judge who cannot be bribed, and account for their decisions.
You are a troll.
Always here to stir it up against any eligibility issues. I see you’ve now added non-post number 2 in this short thread to keep the ridicule stream flowing —your specialty.
Give the woman the credit she is due for pure conviction and courage in the face of institutionalized ridicule.
I’d love to see your face when something finally sticks ( not necessarily through Taitz who has been targeted successfully, including her own lack of strategic savvy—but when it really hits, and the bootlick O media can’t stop it—which is beginning)
Wherever he may have been born, ZerO is clearly hiding something (probably a lot.) I have absolutely no expectation that the courts will touch this, even with a ten foot pole, but Orly Taitz and others who are dismissed as “birthers” are performing a useful service by keeping the matter alive.
Someday the truth will come out - in the midst of the wreckage of the country.
I suspect Zero knows that he will ultimately “lose” these cases but if he can drag them out for several years he will have “won”. Curious. The final admission on his part that he knew he really wasn’t eligible ‘cuz his dad was Kenyan will probably be the final blow to what was once the U.S. Interesting times, fer sure.

“Standing” as a lawyer once told me “means whether the judge got some last nite, or not”.
Standing in a court case is the excuse used by a judge to not hear a case. Amazing that the ACLU always has “standing” no matter how vague or frivilous their case is....but someone asking Obama for proof of birth location.....nope.
So that makes her record what? Oh for all of them?
I hope she's a better dentist than she is a lawyer. For the sake of her patients.
Thanks , nobody has ever said that about my face before . Now I feel guilty for saying crazy things like doubting the birther movement will prevail .
If B. Hussein is removed from office due to ineligibility , no for any reason , prior to the expiration of his term , I will donate $1000.00 to Free Republic in your name and banish myself . Even though I'll be gone , you will have made me the happiest woman in the world .

She earned her on-line law degree to defend herself in malpractice suits associated with her dental practice, all of which have been settled out of court.
I don't know about her reality skills but her association with convicted felon and disbarred attorney Charles Lincoln III is troubling as he's been involved in real-estate scam operations involving homeowners facing foreclosure.
But Orly's a hero and a patriot on this forum! This place has sure changed a lot since I signed up nine years ago. Back then, shady characters like Orly and her associates would not have been held in such high regard.
“Oh for all of them?”
That phrase does make it easy to keep track.
Orly won't be held in high regard if I have anything to do with it. I'll expose her every chance I get. Hopefully some day the birthers will get it through their thick skulls that Orly ain't a freeper's best friend.
Still, the exploration of the differences between a citizen and a subject are useful.
Some birther-control devices are more reliable than others.
(...I felt like there was an implied "can I get an amen" in your statement.)
Ten years here, and "Amen" to that.
That is funny... And my vote is, your comments are welcome here...birther threads suffer from a deplorable lack of humor.
There was an implied, “Can I get uh a-men?!” You need to join the Sanity Squad.
Its my opinion a court would be more inclined to find standing, or quo warranto under its discretion, if there were something concrete on the other side of the problem. Suppose a court did open the door, what is the case? There are no really substantial facts which indicate Obama was born somewhere besides Hawaii. There are plenty of suspicions and questions, but no real substantial evidence. The only point of opening the door would be a fishing expedition, which is probably going to net a physical copy of the COLB. Nobody is going to let their courtroom become a circus for that reason.
On the questions of NBC, there is no case at all. So if the door gets opened, nothing is going happen. Under these circumstances, there is no reason for a court to open the door and go through all the hassle. Give a court an actual Kenyan BC, or something else substantial, and the standing might appear.
I actually think there is a legal basis for standing under a different type of argument, and if it didn’t win, it would at least not be laughable. I would provide it, except for the fact that there is nothing to offer once the door is opened. A court may end up doing this on its own for the same reason, but it hasn’t happened yet, although I have seen a few hints in some of the holdings.
parsy, who is sitting, not standing
Is there a membership fee? Secret handshake? Will I get to wear a fuzzy fedora? If there is a parade, can I ride a tricycle?
She did try to file at the wrong address.
You’re accepted into the Squad. Hazing will commence when you least expect it. Freepmail coming soon. :)
Where did she try to file it?
parsy, the curious
That means she has... a perfect record!
It's an inverted no-hitter.
I'll let Orly tell it as only she can.
I decided to check out possibility of running and called Orange County elections office. nobody answered. I left two messages, nobody called back. I drove to the office at the 1700 E Garry Str, ste 231, Santa Ana CA. The office is locked, no schedule of working hours.
I wonder: if one wants to run for office, how does one register, picks up forms, how does one communicate?
The address is for a gay and lesbian political action committee.
Orly as AG??? Now THAT would be too funny for words.
