It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about birther lawyer Orly Taitz, but you may recall that back in October she was sanctioned in the amount of $ 20,000 by Federal Judge Clay Land for one of the birther lawsuits she filed. Taitz called the sanctions a “mockery of justice,” said she had no intention of paying the sanction, and filed an appeal with the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Today, that appeal was denied:
The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals affirms, as expected, the decision of a lower court to fine birther lawyer Orly Taitz $20,000 for her conduct in a lawsuit on behalf of Capt. Connie Rhodes.
“We have fully considered Taitz’s arguments,” the court finds. “We find them unpersuasive and therefore affirm the district court’s sanctions judgment.”
Since we last talked about the dentist/lawyer/real estate agent, she has filed a new suit in her own name in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. and has announced her candidacy for Secretary of State of California.
Orly’s back, folks.
