From the ledger-enquirer:
So-called “birther” attorney Orly Taitz has resubmitted an application to the U.S. Supreme Court, asking that $20,000 in sanctions imposed by a federal judge in Columbus be reversed.
Taitz has represented two people in Columbus who questioned their military orders on arguments that President Barack Obama couldn’t legitimately hold office. It was the case of Capt. Connie Rhodes that led U.S. District Court Judge Clay Land to sanction Taitz after he warned her and then gave her a time limit to explain why he shouldn’t fine her.
The sanctions came in October 2009, and Taitz appealed to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. That court upheld the sanctions in May, and Taitz sent an application for stay to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on July 8.
