Judge: Birther Queen Orly Taitz ‘Borders on Delusional’

“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,” [Judge] Land writes. “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. . .”
– From “Attorney Orly Taitz Fined $20,000 for Frivolous ‘Birther’ Litigation,” Jonathan Turley, Oct. 13, 2009.

“Judge Clay Land makes the toughest statement about Taitz’s antics here:
‘The Court finds that counsel’s conduct was willful and not merely negligent. It demonstrates bad faith on her part. As an attorney, she is deemed to have known better. She owed a duty to follow the rules and to respect the Court. Counsel’s pattern of conduct conclusively establishes that she did not mistakenly violate a provision of law. She knowingly violated Rule 11. Her response to the Court’s show cause order is breathtaking in its arrogance and borders on delusional. She expresses no contrition or regret regarding her misconduct. To the contrary, she continues her baseless attacks on the Court.’”
– David Weigel, “Orly Taitz Sanctioned for $20,000,” Washington Independent, Oct. 13, 2009.


  1. I had a good laugh when I read about this one, especially since the Judge that fined Queen Birther was appointed by George W. Bush. How anyone can take that idiotic woman seriously is beyond me.

  2. What is this now, about the sixth birther lawsuit that has been thrown out of court? (Between Orly and a couple of other birthers.) Shouldn’t there be a statute of limitations on how many times you can file the same dumb lawsuit?
