[T]he Court has received several sworn affidavits that Taitz asked potential witnesses that she planned to call before this Court to perjure themselves. This Court is deeply concerned that Taitz may have suborned perjury through witnesses she intended to bring before this Court.

That's a pretty serious charge -- though there's no indication the judge has referred the matter to prosecutors. All of the affidavits in question are not publicly available, but the Washington Independent's Dave Weigel has reported on one from Larry Sinclair, himself an anti-Obama activist with a history of making wild claims.

Weigel reported in September:

In [the affidavit], Sinclair recounts being ushered into Taitz's office and being told by her to "testify that three (3) member (sic) of Obama's church were murder (sic)." Sinclair claims to have recoiled at this, at which point Taitz encouraged him to say it anyway.

"You testifying that three (3) members of Obama's church were murdered will help me establish that expedited delivery is necessary because people wind up dead over Obama."
