Rhodes v. MacDonald (Obama) is DISMISSED!!
Edited on Wed Sep-16-09 11:57 AM by Adelante
Good read. Orly Taitz is prevented from filing "similarly frivolous" cases in this George court.

http://ia311028.us.archive.org/1/items/gov.uscourts.gam...




The judicial smackdown is of truly grand proportions:

Then, implying that the President is either a wandering nomad or a prolific identity fraud crook, she alleges that the President might have used as many as 149 addresses and 39 social security numbers prior to assuming the office of President.


Finally, in a remarkable shifting of the traditional legal burden of proof, Plaintiff unashamedly alleges that Defendant has the burden to prove his natural born status.


The factual allegations must be sufficient to raise a right to relief above the speculative level. Bell Atl. Corp. v. Twombly, 550 U.S. 544, 555 (2007). Plaintiffs complaint is not plausible on its face.


Presumably, some other military doctor, who does not resort to frivolous litigation to question the Presidents legitimacy as Commander in Chief, would be required to go to Iraq in Plaintiffs place. Similarly, the doctor who Plaintiff is being sent to relieve and who has likely been there for months would be delayed in receiving his well deserved leave because his replacement seeks special treatment due to her political views or reservations about being placed in harms way.


A spurious claim questioning the Presidents constitutional legitimacy may be protected by the First Amendment, but a Courts placement of its imprimatur upon a claim that is so lacking in factual support that it is frivolous would undoubtedly disserve the public interest.


And last, but friggin' painful for their lies about the "millions" O is spending on legal fees:

For the reasons previously stated, Plaintiffs motion for a temporary restraining order is denied and Plaintiffs complaint is dismissed in its entirety. Defendants shall recover their costs from Plaintiff. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(d).

1. Good stuff! Nice footnote here:
The Court observes that the President defeated seven opponents in
ling campaign for his partys nomination that lasted more than
eighteen months and cost those opponents well over $300 million. See
Federal Election Commission, Presidential Pre-Nomination Campaign
Disbursements Dec. 31, 2008, http://www.fec.gov/press/press2009 /
20090608Pres/3_2008PresPrimaryCmpgnDis.pdf (last visited Sept. 15, 2009).
Then the President faced a formidable opponent in the general election who
received $84 million to conduct his general election campaign against the
President. Press Release, Federal Election Commission, 2008 Presidential
Campaign Financial Activity Summarized (June 8, 2009), available at
http://www.fec.gov/press/press2009/20090608PresStat.sht... . It would
appear that ample opportunity existed for discovery of evidence that would
support any contention that the President was not eligible for the office he sought.
:rofl:

That little nugget didn't shut the FReeps up completely but it did remove a talking point.

5. Wowser...
The tone of that judgment sounded to me like it had an air of annoyance and almost a belittling manner. It felt like it was essentially calling Taitz a whackjob and the servicewoman a coward for not wanting to go to Iraq - not that I really disagree with either of those things, but I'm hesitant to think that should be blatant in a ruling like that.

40. I got frivolously sued in federal court years ago (along with 40 other defendants)
and when the case was finally dismissed against me, the judge delivered a similar harsh smackdown. Which he was free to do, and which I roundly applauded.

The plaintiff in my case was subsequently declared a vexatious litigant, lol.

short tempered about incompetent lawyers. They don't have to answer to anyone unless someone wants to try and impeach them. I love that he ordered her to pay the defendents legal fees. And that he was appointed by Bush and recced by Chambliss is just too delicious.

Taitz cited an online AOL poll's results as a reason to quesition Obama's legitimacy:

Moreover, as though the general opinion in the rest of the world were not enough, Plaintiff alleges in her Complaint that according to an AOL poll 85% of Americans believe that Obama was not vetted, needs to be vetted and his vital records need to be produced.

16. This paragraph makes me livid.

Captain Rhodes entered
the Army in March of 2005 and presently serves as a medical doctor.
The American taxpayers paid for her third and fourth years of medical
school and financially supported her during her subsequent medical
internship and residency program. In exchange for this valuable free
medical education, Captain Rhodes agreed to serve two years in active
service in the Army. She began that term of active service in July
of 2008 and had no concerns about fulfilling her military obligation
until she received orders notifying her that she would be deployed to
Iraq in September of 2009.

:nuke:

Good on the judge!

Plaintiffs counsel is
hereby notified that the filing of any future actions in this Court,
which are similarly frivolous, shall subject counsel to sanctions

18. "Unlike in Alice in Wonderland, simply saying something is so does not make it so." lol!
To the extent that it alleges any facts, the Complaint does not connect those facts to any actual violation of Plaintiffs individual constitutional rights. Unlike in Alice in Wonderland, simply saying something is so does not make it so. The weakness of Plaintiffs claim certainly weighs heavily against judicial review of the deployment order, and in fact, would authorize dismissal of Plaintiffs complaint for failure to state a claim.


Further bwwahhahahha! in the footnotes:

One piece of evidence Plaintiffs counsel relies upon deserves further discussion. Counsel has produced a document that she claims shows the President was born in Kenya, yet she has not authenticated that document. She has produced an affidavit from someone who allegedly obtained the document from a hospital in Mombasa, Kenya by paying a cash consideration to a Kenyan military officer on duty to look the other way, while obtained the copy of the document. (Smith Decl. 7, Sept. 3, 2009.) Counsel has not, however, produced an original
certificate of authentication from the government agency that supposedly has official custody of the document. Therefore, the Court finds that the alleged document is unreliable due to counsels failure to properly authenticate the document. See Fed. R. Evid. 901

Unfortunately for Captain Connie Rhodes, she's the one who'll pay the ultimate price.

She's now and forever more a Blue Falcon. On top of that, she is now wide open to charges under Article 88 of the UCMJ.

You're right -- in Rhodes'case, "teh stupid" will have real-world repercussions for her that could have been avoided if she hadn't participated in this absolute nonsense.

25. Most law firms carry malpractice insurance
I suspect Ms. Taitz only carries malpractice insurance for her dentistry practice.

In fact, if you dig you'll discover the only reason Taitz sought her law degree (from an unaccredited online law school) and took the bar was so she could defend herself in malpractice suits.

35. IF she faces charges under Article 88 of the UCMJ, she most definitely has a case
and I suspect she will face mroe charges than just an Article 88.

Taitz is messing in areas of law she has no clue about, has made recommendations to file a spurious lawsuit and if it results in harm either via civil or criminal court proceedings, Rhodes has a case.

45. Great random freeper voice of reason response here
To: vikk
Land also put attorney Orly Taitz, .... on notice by stating that she could face sanctions if she ever files a similar frivolous lawsuit in his court.

Yet just this week, Orly Taitz stated that she would have Obama out of office within 30 days. Her grandiose comments, and attempts at litigation, are the legal equivalent of Star Trek techno-babble. She is promising to crawl through the Jeffries Tube, and neutralize Obama with a stream of reverse tachyon particles.

That is why so many Freepers are keep posting that she is either a moron, or a double agent. They know that she could not win the case, even if she really did have a case. Every second and dollar spent supporting her is a second or dollar spent in the service of Obama.

Latest Orly Taitz-Litigated Birther Soldier Lawsuit Dismissed In Hilarious Opinion

Terrifying dentist-lawyer Orly Taitz recently filed another suit on behalf of some wingnut soldier who didnt want to go fight in the various wars although had no problem remaining in the military, in America! because Barack Obama is from Kenya and cannot ergo make her do that, so there. Well, here is a judge in Georgia making fun of Taitz, and this soldier, for 14 pages. It is brilliant.

56. A coward and a nut team up
So Obama has to pay millions for all the frivolous lawsuits. OK, so he doesn't have to pay for this one but what about
all the others. I've read about several cases and the last one the judge was thinking about having the plaintiff pay for
Obama's legal fees. Maybe they just want to drain his pockets since it's all bs and they know it.

59. does Obama even have anyone show up to court for these wastes of time?
does he have millions in legal fees? hell, he could send a volunteer community college pre-law student to court and he'd still have no trouble.

I was thinking about the "Legal Department" in the WH. Maybe they are too busy. I'll have to ask Palin about that.

88. You know, it wasn't so much the name mix up "Justc" vs "Legal" ?? Who cares?
It was the fact that she had absolutely NO idea of what the department did, could do, and ought to do.

101. I think you mean the "Department of Law"
"I think on a national level your department of law there in the White House would look at some of the things that we've been charged with and automatically throw them out," she said.

Which is even more of a classic ignorant-and-proud Palinism.

64. That's a birther talking point actually...
That Obama is supposedly "paying millions of dollars" to hide his records.

Most of the lawsuits have been against state or federal officals as the primary defendant. Very few have been against Obama directly.

72. I'm sure I read about attorneys for Obama being at a hearing
When you get in to birther talking points it's hard to keep up. I don't know why anyone would believe he's paying
millions to hide his records when a Republican from Hawaii has said over and over again that they have checked the
b/c and it's legal.

70. Orly Taitz: Judge Clay Land should be tried for treason with Obama.
Orly Taitz, Rhodes attorney told News Three the ruling is horrible. Taitz said Judge Clay Land should be tried for treason with Obama. Taitz also said Judge Lands ruling showed a total disrespect for the Constitution of the United States of America.

Taitz says she plans to appeal the ruling to the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. She has 60 days to do so. Shes currently appealing a similar ruling in a similar case before Judge Clay Land involving another soldier.

85. When does someone say "enough!"
Edited on Thu Sep-17-09 12:24 AM by angrychair
There has to be a point when this has to stop. I can't imagine that this can go on and on like this. She is clearly mentally unstable...while she has another pending case before Judge Land she says he should be put on trial for treason! The cherry on that sundae is that she is going to appeal this case to the 11th circuit. Given her statements and clearly having no supporting evidence to support an appeal, its absurd. Who is funding this nutjob? I don't think there is a lot of pressure to push her out on the of the limelight by the Dems though because she is really doing a dis-service to the GOP. Its becoming sad and uncomfortable though, she is deeply disturbed and really needs someone to take her by the hand and lead her off the stage. It is upsetting that people are allowing this to continue. Where the hell is the CA Bar in all of this? Can she not be dis-barred in some procedural move? That would end this insanity and put this issue to rest finally.

*ended to correct spelling

90. Yes, Rock-solid and scientific! I was also waiting...
... for some other similarly hard evidence to be cited, like: "As if the AOL poll was not itself 'sufficient,' Plaintiff also alleges that 'some people have suggested' the President may be foreign-born."

91. "Any middle school civics student...
... would readily recognize the irony of abandoning fundamental principles upon which our Country was founded in order to purportedly 'protect and preserve' those very principles."

First off, one can only hope middle school civic students are being taught well enough to recognize the irony here.

Secondly, "abandoning fundamental principles upon which our Country was founded in order to purportedly 'protect and preserve' those very principles" kind of describes the Bush years! Coincidence?? :shrug:

94. She should have known
that the trial was a set up. But then, she apparently is not particularly bright (stoooopid with a fair ration of insane). The only reason a judge would entertain this claptrap in his/her courtroom would be to deliver this sort of smackdown (on a middle-school civics class level yet). She has now had her most likely one and only professional "shot across the bow". If she continues to file this nonsense she will be either heavily fined, disbarred, or perhaps both. She is not going to stop, so it should be fun to watch.

"To the extent that it alleges any

violation of Plaintiffs individual constitutional rights. Unlike in
Alice in Wonderland, simply saying something is so does not make it
so."

For frivolous and vexatious litigation.
