The Supreme Court has upheld a $20,000 fine against a leader of the movement challenging President Barack Obama's citizenship.She repeatedly ignores court rules and guidelines for filings, repeatedly files suit on trying to claim that President Obama isn't a lawful citizen and therefore cannot be President of the US. I'd say that the $20,000 fine isn't sufficiently high enough.
The high court on Monday refused to block a federal judge's October 2009 ruling that required California lawyer and dentist Orly Taitz to pay the $20,000 fine for filing a "frivolous" litigation. The judge said Taitz attempted to misuse the federal courts to push a political agenda.
Taitz sued in Georgia federal court on behalf of Army Capt. Connie Rhodes. Rhodes sought to avoid deployment to Iraq by claiming Obama wasn't born in the United States.
All the while, the California Bar continues its investigation into whether Taitz should be disbarred (her case is pending).
She previously stated that she'd pay the fine if the court rules against her. Well, isn't that nice.
She's an absolute disgrace to the legal profession, and this is a frivolous lawsuit that isn't based in reality.
