Birther Queen Orly Taitz To Be Disbarred?

By Tanya Roth, Esq. on February 17, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

The Birther-Queen may be losing a lot more than her marbles.

She might be losing her license to practice law. On February 26, Orly Taitz is scheduled to appear before the California State Bar.

Orly Taitz, an online law-school graduate, is the heavily festooned woman behind the movement to dethrone President Barack Obama, claiming that President Obama was not born in the United States. Taitz was reprimanded by a Georgia judge during a lawsuit to prevent her client from being deployed in the military, justifying that Obama was not a valid Commander-in-Chief. In his 43-page ruling, Judge Clay Land cited and fined Orly Taitz for misconduct under Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

Essentially, as Judge Land's complaint states, Rule 11 "prohibits an attorney from using the courts for a purpose unrelated to the resolution of a legitimate legal cause of action."

Indeed, Orly Taitz has been cited for the filing of frivolous law suits which have the sole purpose of raising the Birther platform. 

In addition to her numerous frivolous complaints over the years, Taitz has a motion filed in Washington D.C. District Court to compel President Obama to hand over his birth documents by February 26, because Taitz needs them for her defense before the California State Bar. 

Among her other beliefs, she claims that President Obama is gay, that Google is against her and that Hugo Chavez is rigging the U.S. elections.

But the real issue here isn't whether she should lose her license to practice law. Rather, the more pressing question should be on the California State Bar admissions process!

Anyhow, the saga of Orly Taitz won't come to an end that easily. It's not the end of the world for Orly, if she loses her license. She has her other careers to fall back on. She is, after all, a dentist, a realtor and a taekwondo black belt.
