Judge Slams Birther Suit, Orders Fees Paid

A Brooklyn judge has apparently had enough of Christopher Earl Strunk filing lawsuits claiming that Obama is not a natural-born citizen and therefore not eligible to be president. In a ruling last week, he slammed Strunk as delusional and ordered him to pay almost $200,000 in fees for the other side:

Christopher Earl Strunk sought to have President Obama disqualified as a candidate. The author of some 20 other lawsuits — most of which have been dismissed — Strunk was ordered to pay $167,707 in attorney fees plus a $10,000 sanction for the 2011 lawsuit that named Obama, New York’s Board of Elections and a list of others as defendants…

Schack also mocked Strunk for claiming a “massive conspiracy to defraud American voters (that) was perpetrated by hundreds of individuals, at the behest of the Roman Catholic Church and especially the Jesuits.” He imposed the fees for three law firms that opposed Strunk’s lawsuits.

“I’m going to have this thing overturned and I’m not going to pay a dime,” vowed Strunk.

Good luck with that. I hear Orly Taitz is free to help.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.
