This is one badass judge

| »

No, I’m not talking about Judge Judie, or any excrement of the sort. I’m referring to Judge Clay Land, who was appointed by President Bush, who had the misfortune of having to deal with one of batshit-crazy and laughably dumb Orly Taitz’s 12 million lawsuits claiming that President Obama wasn’t born in the U.S. and is therefore ineligible for presidency. Thankfully, Judge Clay isn’t any more tolerant of her groundless bullshit than anyone else is, and tells her exactly what he thinks of her endless nonsense (though in civilized terms).

After conducting a hearing on Plaintiff's motion, the Court finds that Plaintiff's claims are frivolous. Accordingly, her application for a temporary restraining order is denied, and her Complaint is dismissed in its entirety. Furthermore, Plaintiff's counsel is hereby notified that the filing of any future actions in this Court, which are similarly frivolous, shall subject counsel to sanctions.


Plaintiff's counsel is a self-proclaimed leader in what has become known as "the birther movement." She maintains that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States, and, therefore, he is not eligible to be President of the United States. Counsel has filed numerous lawsuits in various parts of the country seeking a judicial determination as to the President's legitimacy to hold the office of President. The present action is the second such action filed in this Court in which counsel pursues her "birther claim." Her modus operandi is to use military officers as parties and have them allege that they should not be required to follow deployment orders because President Obama is not constitutionally qualified to be President. Although counsel has managed to fuel this "birther movement" with her litigation and press conferences, she does not appear to have prevailed on a single claim. In fact, Plaintiff previously filed the present action in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas. That Court summarily dismissed her complaint upon finding that Plaintiff "has no substantial likelihood of success on the merits." Counsel then re-filed the same action in this Court.

Truly delicious. This excuse for a lawyer would shame Lionel Hutz. It’s about time she got spoken to as she deserves to be.
