Lawyer Orly Taitz fined $20,000 for legal misconduct in her claims that Barack Obama was born in Kenya and so should be removed as president.
U.S. District Court Judge Clay D. Land wrote that one recent Taitz response to the court “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….”
Her “misconduct was not an isolated event; it was part of a pattern that advanced frivolous arguments and disrespectful personal attacks on the parties and the Court.
“In all of counsel’s frivolous filings, she hurled personal insults at the parties and the Court. Rather than assert legitimate legal arguments, counsel chose to accuse the Court of treason and of being controlled by the ‘Obama machine.’ She had no facts to support her claims – but her diatribe would play well to her choir.”
