Judge Directs US Attorney To Collect $20K From Orly Taitz After Failure To Pay Fine

Newscom / a01

Land imposed the fine a month ago, citing repeated frivolous filings by Taitz in the suit, which was originally about a claim by Taitz's Army captain client that she should not have to follow deployment orders because Barack Obama is not legitimately president. In an interview with TPMmuckraker that same day, a defiant Taitz declared she would not pay the fine.

Taitz then appealed the fine, but it's not clear whether the appeal has been dismissed. Also not clear is how the US Attorney will collect the fine -- but we're trying to find out, and will let you know when we do.

Late Update: Pam Lightsey, spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Macon, Georgia, sends along this statement:

We cannot comment on an ongoing case other than to say that we will
follow the statutory provisions that dictate how debts owed to the
government are collected.
