Taitz must pay sanction

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court has upheld a $20,000 fine against a leader of the movement challenging President Barack Obama's citizenship.

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.

Justice Samuel Alito on Monday rejected Taitz's second request to block the sanctions. Justice Clarence Thomas had rejected the request earlier.

Aren't you just a little bit curious about why Obama has spent so much time, energy and money to avoid producing a birth certificate?

She is the lawyer who filed the lawsuit. I think $20,000 is getting off cheap.

Perhaps her lawyer should also be fined $20,000 for filing this law suit. It's time to sock it to the lawyers who participate in these frivolous suits with $$$ in their eyes.
