Attorney Orly Taitz, hoping to avoid paying a $20,000 fine imposed by a federal district court, says she is appealing to the Supreme Court.

Taitz, the attorney who has provided an endless sideshow with court challenges to President Obama’s eligibility to hold office, was fined $20,000 in October for bringing one of her frivolous actions into federal court.

Federal district Judge Clay Land issued the fine last fall, criticizing Taitz for her ”frivolous arguments and disrespectful personal attacks” in court, stating that her previous court filing was “breathtaking in its arrogance and borders on delusional.” In her court filings, Taitz had accused Judge Land of meeting secretly with Attorney General Eric Holder outside the court. Holder had actually been thousands of miles away that day, giving a speech in Los Angeles.

This was perhaps the most irregular item in a highly irregular case, for which Judge Land’s further criticism was scathing:

When a lawyer files complaints and motions without a reasonable basis for believing that they are supported by existing law or a modification or extension of existing law, that lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law. When a lawyer uses the courts as a platform for a political agenda disconnected from any legitimate legal cause of action, that lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law. When a lawyer personally attacks opposing parties and disrespects the integrity of the judiciary, that lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law. When a lawyer recklessly accuses a judge of violating the Judicial Code of Conduct with no supporting evidence beyond her dissatisfaction with the judge’s rulings, that lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law. When a lawyer abuses her privilege to practice law, that lawyer ceases to advance her cause or the ends of justice.

Taitz’s appeal, obtained by The Examiner today, contains such gems as the following:

[A]llowing sanctions by judge Land to stand, will signify beginning of tyranny in the United States of America and end to the Constitutional Republic which is the foundation of this nation. The question is as follows: “If the judiciary can sanction an attorney for bringing an action to uphold a Constitutional right, what is next? Will FEMA camps be turned intothe next GULAG? Will we see a wave of political assassinations of dissidents, as were seen in numerous totalitarian regimes around the World, such as regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq or regime of Mahmud Ahmadinejad in Iran?” This is the most dangerous road a judiciary can take. When judiciary is pandering to an illegitimate dictator,who sits in the White House, using a Social Security number of another individual and not having a valid long form birth certificate, the country descends into tyranny.

Taitz also holds the world record for the worst television appearance ever.
