U.S. District Court Judge Clay Land, in Columbus, has come down hard on birther attorney Orly Taitz, fining her $20,000 for willfully abusing her right to practice law. I suspect Taitz wont have that right much longer.
The Court finds that counsels 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. Counsels pattern of conduct conclusively establishes that she did not mistakenly violate a provision of law. She knowingly violated Rule 11. Her response to the Courts show cause order is breathtaking in its arrogance and borders on delusional.

"And the Hawaiian BC was not official. It was a Certification of Live Birth."
It is official. It is the current official Hawaiian birth certificate form. If you were born in Hawaii, and you request your birth certificate now, that is what you get. It is perfectly valid, and is good for any purpose for which a birth certificate is required.
"Anyone can get that."
No they can't. No more than anyone could get a birth certificate from your home state. If you get a Hawaiian birth certificate that says you were born in Hawaii, it's because you were. That certificate is prima facie legal proof of the fact.
"I could produce my long form BC in two minutes."
You could only because the jurisdiction which issues it, issued it in that form when you got it. Hawaii does not. The COLB is what you'd get.
On this subject, this is from her website today, it shows Orly responding to Judge Lands $20,000.00 fine
There was an eligibility case in which Judge James Robertson threatened to impose sanctions on attorney John D. Hemenway.
In this WND article:
John D. Hemenway also had suggested that if there were to be sanctions, court rules would allow him to require the release of Obamas birth information.
If the court persists in pressing Rule 11 procedures against Hemenway, then Hemenway should be allowed all of the discovery pertinent to the procedures as court precedents have permitted in the past, he wrote to the judge.
The court has referred to a number of facts outsideof the record of this particular case and, therefore, the undersigned is particularly entitled to a hearing to get the truth of those matters into the record. This may require the court to authorize some discovery, Hemenway said.
Orly , are there any technicalities that will entitle you to discovery, due to Judge Land s sanction?
Anyway, I will be sending you a check today. If you are fined, I and all other decent Americans are fined too.
God bless you!
Dear Mr. Vasquez,
I will clearly appeal this mockery of justice. Judge Land was totally dishonest and misstated and misrepresented 99% of what was written in the pleadings and what transpired during the hearings. He broke and violated each and every rule in the book: his own local rules, clear precedents, rule of law and Constitution in order to appease this Kenyan dictator and his regime.
Thank you Mr. Vasquez for your support. I hope that this attempt to silence me backfires against this corrupt regime.
She still doesn't get it. She wasn't sanctioned for filing the original case; she was sanctioned for the arguments made in her motion to reconsider, and for her crazy attempt to disqualify the judge after he had already ruled against her.
