Early in 2010, OFGS summarized:
As far back as May, 2009, an anonymous ethics complaint was filed against Orly Taitz with the California Bar Association. Two of her own witnesses, Larry Sinclair and Lucas Smith, filed affidavits with the California Bar, claiming she had attempted to suborn perjury in Barnett v. Obama in California. Judge David O. Carter called her actions “improper” and “objectionable” regarding two clients in that case, Drake and Robinson, who are now Gary Kreep’s clients, and expressed concern about the perjury claims.
Taitz’s client, Capt. Connie Rhodes, informed the court in Georgia that she intended to file a complaint with the California Bar about Taitz’s “reprehensible and unprofessional actions.” And, of course, the Judge in that case, Clay D. Land, took the step of copying his Order to the Bar Association when he sanctioned Taitz $20,000, which she has yet to pay. In September, a member of the California Bar filed a second ethics complaint against her, asking for an investigation into her unprofessional conduct.
The State Bar of California irresponsibly took no action against this pitiful excuse for a lawyer.
Floyd Brown of the Western Center for Journalism has posted a series of YouTube videos apparently cut from the original live feed of the administrative hearings held in Atlanta last week. The live feed was sponsored by Obama Release Your Records and Article II Super PAC, and shot by Dean Haskins of Birther Summit.
In Part 6, following on Dr. Orly Taitz Esq.’s slapstick plop into the witness stand, during her closing argument, toward the end of the video, Taitz raised the matter of her requested Letters Rogatory, submitted January 20, for Judge Malihi to commission a subpoena extending “the jurisdiction of the Administrative court of the state of GA to the state of HI,” for her to inspect President Obama’s birth records.
On January 6, in a Petition for an Emergency Writ of Mandamus to the Supreme Court of Hawaii, Denied, Taitz mentioned the subpoena–a form downloaded from the administrative office’s web site and intended for use inside Georgia–was “signed by the Deputy Chief administrative judge of the state of GA,” with no reference to any commission she might have received thereby enforcing the subpoena form.
Judge Malihi’s Denial of Letters Rogatory, issued on January 27, reads:
The Court has reviewed the motion by Plaintiffs, Farrar, Lax, Judy, Malaren, and Roth, to direct and/or request the Court in Hawaii to order the release of certain Hawaii documents to the Plaintiffs. This Court lacks jurisdiction or authority to direct or request documents from Hawaii. Plaintiffs’ motion is denied.
SO ORDERED, this the 27th day of January, 2012.
The big problem is that ten days earlier, in a Hawaii court filing, Taitz swore, under penalty of perjury, that Judge Malihi had already done that which he clearly states he does not have the power to do.
Denied reciprocal subpoena enforcement ten days earlier, on January 17, in the First Circuit Court of Honolulu, Taitz’s Ex Parte Amended Motion for Reconsideration, which was filed on January 13, refers to “an out of state subpoena and commission from the administrative court of Georgia.” She verifies:
I, Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq., declare under penalty of perjury, that I was given commission and subpoena (attached) to conduct deposition and examination of records of witness Loretta Fuddy, director of Health. I petition this court to issue subpoena for deposition, examination of records and examination of records and witness at trial, pursuant to a valid subpoena from the court of competent jurisdiction, administrative court of the state of Georgia. Trial is scheduled for January 26, 2012.
Forget that particular subpoena was never even served, according to the Deputy Attorney General of Hawaii. Forget that even Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s lawyer knew Orly’s subpoenas could be ignored, because they were not valid. If Orly Taitz “was given commission” and Administrative Judge Malihi, by his own word, “lacks jurisdiction or authority” to give a commission, then where did the commission, the one Taitz swore under oath at risk of perjury to possess, come from? The same crackerjacks box as her law degree?
Will the State Bar of California take notice? We can only hope, but history judges not.
