Anti-Obama attorney Philip J. Berg faces disciplinary complaint

Andy Martin asks Supreme Court of Pennsylvania to investigate the bizarre litigation behavior of anti-Obama lawyer Philip J. Berg

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

INTERNET POWERHOUSE ANDY MARTIN ASKS PENNSYLVANIA SUPREME COURT DISCIPLINARY BOARD TO EXAMINE ATTORNEY PHILIP BERG'S PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT

(NEW YORK)(November 12, 2008) Andy Martin has asked the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania Disciplinary Board to investigate the conduct of anti-Obama attorney Philip J. Berg of Lafayette Hill, PA. "There have been a lot of questions, and criticism, swirling around Mr. Berg's behavior," Martin stated. "I thought his behavior merited a look by the Disciplinary Board. That way there can be a fair and impartial examination of his claims and actions."

A copy of Martin's Statement, which is part of Martin's form complaint, (faxed to the DB today, November 12th) follows:

November 12, 2008

Philip J. Berg contacted me in mid-August about a complaint he proposed to file in federal court. He sent me the complaint to review, and I advised him the complaint was nonsense. He was suing the wrong parties in the wrong court for the wrong relief. Berg said he wanted to "enjoin the Democratic National Convention," which caused me to question his sanity. He pleaded that Barack Obama was "born in Kenya" when there is not a shred of credible evidence to support this claim.

He filed his complaint and then began issuing a series of asinine news releases about the progress of his lawsuit.

Berg is playing on the vulnerability of people who intensely dislike President-elect Barack Obama, and using his inflated accusations to solicit money from the public. He constantly exaggerates or misrepresents the facts. In early September persons acting on his behalf claimed there was a "court order" for Obama to produce a birth certificate. No such order existed.

Then he claimed Obama was in "default" and had "admitted" he was born in Kenya. This was compete nonsense. As someone who is a genuine critic of Mr. Obama, I know firsthand what confusion Berg creates with his false and misleading claims. Most recently he or persons acting in concert with him have suggested that the U.S. Supreme Court "ordered" a response to his nonsense. The Court has done nothing of the sort. The court's rules simply provide a thirty-day period for responses.

I don't know whether Berg suffers from an emotional disturbance, or is merely a money-grubbing huckster, or what, but Berg's behavior is undermining public faith in the integrity of the Pennsylvania legal profession.

Berg has been disciplined in the past for misconduct:

11. Yes, but the second mofo is correct.
There are gullible minds that fell for this stuff, and it just adds to their belief that he is not a valid president, therefore, he has no authority over them.

14. You know what.....
Andy Martin has a reputation for being more than slightly anti-semitic.

I'm wondering if he's pissed that a "Jew like Berg" is getting all the press and he's not.

15. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
We have a RW lawyer in Manchester who plays these same sorts of games, threatening bogus lawsuits to score cheap political points. It's good to see this asshat face the loss of his license.

Joe Kelly Levasseur, you're next!

17. I wonder how many freepers were pinning their hopes on this guy.
I seem to recall someone posting some nonsense from freeperville where they were anticipating a lawsuit to be filed (concerning Obama's birth certificate) that would overturn the election.

I just wish I had some of whatever they're smoking, if you know what I mean.
