If anyone were still in doubt about Orly’s legal skills, the following responses filed by Michael Astrue et al should lay to rest any such concerns
Failure to follow Federal Rule of Civil Procedure for service:
Footnote 1:Taitz served the United States Attorney’s Office by certified mail on September 4, 2012. She does not appear to have served the Attorney General or any of the federal government agencies or official-capacity defendants, as required by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(i).
of Success on the Merits, as She Fails to State a Claim Upon Which Relief May Be
If the Court looks to the merits, it should be clear that Taitz cannot succeed on any of her claims. Taitz challenges a law that she either misunderstands or misrepresents, and even a cursory reading of the relevant provision – together with decades of case law interpreting it, none of it cited by Taitz – demonstrates that her claims are without merit.
Taitz’s motion for a preliminary injunction also contends that the religious conscience exemption violates her rights under RFRA and her First Amendment right to free speech. Neither of these claims was raised in her complaint, and thus neither provides a basis for her to obtain preliminary relief. Because the very purpose of a preliminary injunction is to preserve the parties’ positions until a final resolution of the merits, it would be illogical to enter a preliminary injunction with respect to a claim that the plaintiff’s complaint does not even seek to present.
