Judge Spikes Orly Taitz's Attempt to Get In on Multi-State Anti-Healthcare Suit

Read the full ruling below. We think her attempt to morph her Taitz vs. Obama eligibility challenge into a healthcare challenge remains unaffected by this ruling. Lawyers?Accordingly, in the exercise of my "sound discretion," I will deny the request for permissive intervention on the facts of this case. The parties to this litigation, and, indeed, the citizens of this country, have an interest in having this case resolved as soon as practically possible. That task will be made exponentially more difficult if all those who have an opinion and an interest in the outcome of the case were allowed to intervene and to join in these proceedings. Already this court has received many such pro se requests for intervention. Furthermore, with respect to Taitz's motion in particular, I believe the parties to this case and the court should remain focused solely on the legal issues raised by the named plaintiffs, and not concern themselves with collateral issues (such as, for example, whether President Obama has provided sufficient proof of a valid birth certificate).
