Well, a reader here named Mark, [Thank you Mark!!!] has given me a heads up on Orly Taitz’s new Plaintiff, Inmate Keith Judd.
His name is Keith Judd, and assuming he is the same person mentioned in the document below, then he is a well known vexatious litigant, having filed more than 748 cases in Federal court in 15 years. This works out to about one lawsuit per week. A pdf of the entire order is in the notes below, as is a Daily Beast Internet Article about him from May, 2012. He is the prisoner who won 40% of the Democratic vote in West Virginia against Obama.
Perhaps Orly Taitz thinks she has found her perfect client. But here are some words of warning to her from my BFF Fabia Sheen, Esq., a lawyer, who has this to say about vexatious litigants. . . just because you are through with a vexatious litigant, does not mean that the vexatious litigant is through with you.
Considering Taitz’s many litigation boo-boo’s and screw-ups, the fact that she has a lot of personal wealth, and the fact that Mr. Judd has some extra time on his hands, don’t be surprised if when the Birther suits are dismissed, the suits against Taitz begin. And I don’t see the judicial system having a lot of sympathy for her.
I am laying in a whole bunch of popcorn for this one.
Note 1. The Image. This is from the 1967 TV show, The Prisoner. Here is what Wiki has to say about it:
The Prisoner is a 17-episode British television series first broadcast in the UK from 29 September 1967 to 1 February 1968. Starring and co-created by Patrick McGoohan, it combined spy fiction with elements of science fiction, allegory and psychological drama.
The series follows an unnamed British agent who abruptly resigns his job, apparently preparing to go on a holiday. While packing his luggage, he is knocked out by a chemical agent in his quarters. When he wakes, he finds himself held captive in a mysterious seaside “village” that is isolated from the mainland by mountains and sea. The Village is further secured by numerous monitoring systems and security forces, including a mysterious balloon-like device called Rover that recaptures those who attempt escape. The agent encounters the Village’s population, hundreds of people from all walks of life and cultures, all seeming to be tranquilly living out their lives. They do not use names, but instead are assigned numbers; the protagonist is assigned Number Six, but ostentatiously refuses to go by this, refusing to give into the pretense.
Six is monitored heavily by Number Two, the Village administrator acting as an agent for an unseen “Number One”. A variety of techniques are used by Number Two to try to extract information from Number Six, including hallucinogenic drug experiences, identity theft, mind control, dream manipulation, and various forms of social indoctrination. All of these are employed not only to find out about why Six resigned as an agent but to extract other dangerous information he gained as a spy. The position of Number Two is filled in on a rotating basis; in some cases, part of a larger plan to confuse Number Six, while other times as a result of failure for interrogating Six.
