Ooh, Klayman Has a New Frivolous Lawsuit

Fresh off filing a complaint to get President Obama deported (a complaint that will go straight into the circular file, where it belongs), Larry Klayman, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Mat Staver, has a brand new frivolous lawsuit he plans to file against the president for not sufficiently protecting him against the Ebola virus. He announced this plan in a Worldnetdaily column, then WND published a separate article about that column.

Now he’s preparing to take aim at the president again, only this time it’s over Ebola.

He revealed his plans in a cryptic statement in his weekly WND column, where he wrote, “I am fashioning a lawsuit to force Obama to curtail travel and immigration from Liberia and the rest of West Africa until we know we can combat the deadly Ebola outbreak. And, immigration from all Muslim nations where terrorists have a beachhead must also be immediately stopped.”

No filing had been submitted by end of day Friday, so details presumably will become available sometime next week, but a source with access to details said the defendants would include Obama and his administration as well as the Centers for Disease Control.

He would have standing to sue, the source told WND, because Klayman traveled through one of the nation’s targeted airports, Newark, in recent days, and was in a position to have been exposed to Ebola from possible travelers there.

While Klayman’s column didn’t provide specifics of what is planned, the source with access to information about the concept told WND among the allegations would be aiding and abetting the attempted murder of U.S. citizens, conspiracy, provision of support to terrorists, assault and battery.

Now this is amusing. They have a “source” feeding them details about Klayman’s suit. But Klayman writes for them. He’s also WND’s actual attorney, having represented them in the failed and frivolous defamation suit against Esquire. And they need a source? They can’t just ask him? I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the “source” is one of the voices in Larry’s head. There’s no way in hell this suit, like so many others Klayman has filed, survives a motion to dismiss.

    C’mon Ed, this isn’t anything new. It’s Monday. We’ve pretty much come to expect a new Klayman lawsuit on Mondays.

    At what point do you seriously (genuinely) begin to question this man’s mental health state?

    Please, please someone get the case number on this one.

    Because I give it close to even chances of being dismissed sua sponte for standing (Klayman having sustained no personal injury.)

    The time has long since passed when this asshole’s law license should have been pulled for filing frivolous law suits.

    The WND: He would have standing to sue, the source told WND, because Klayman traveled through one of the nation’s targeted airports, Newark, in recent days, and was in a position to have been exposed to Ebola from possible travelers there.

    So did his travel through Newark Airport come before it was designated for special screening, or after? I guess that’s what makes Klayman’s statement “cryptic.”

    And I suppose it would be churlish to ask what sort of bodily fluid he was exposed to…

    “I am fashioning a lawsuit to force Obama to curtail travel and immigration from Liberia and the rest of West Africa until we know we can combat the deadly Ebola outbreak.

    This has already been done. Flights out of those countries are down 80%. The Dallas Ebola patient didn’t fly from Liberia to Dallas. He hopscotched around starting from Brussels, Belgium.

    And, immigration from all Muslim nations where terrorists have a beachhead must also be immediately stopped.”

    This is stupid, A large number of immigrants from those countries are people who collaborated with America. We let them in to keep our side’s people from being massacred and/or as a reward. Others are xians from that region who end up being collateral damage. Half of all Iraqi xians are either dead or fled the country.

    Damn. He guessed it. The entire ebola outbreak was an assassination plot aimed at him. (To distract everyone from BENGHAZI, of course.)

    And we would have gotten away with it too, if not for those darn kids and that big dog!

    He would have standing to sue, the source told WND, because Klayman traveled through one of the nation’s targeted airports, Newark, in recent days, and was in a position to have been exposed to Ebola from possible travelers there.

    10:1 he didn’t travel through the international arrivals area, you know, where all them there foreigners land.

    I also traveled through many of the nation’s airports in the last two months, one of which was likely the place where I was exposed to the influenza virus and therefore the illness I’ve been fighting the last 3 weeks. I’m an asthmatic so the flu is potentially fatal. Do I get to sue the government from not curtailing travel from all those red states who failed to comply with all aspects of Obamacare, leaving their populations more likely to get, and to pass on, and illness?

  • dhall

    At what point does a judge do something other than merely throw out the suit? Aren’t there penalties for wasting the court’s time?

  • Kevin Kehres

    @4..EricJohansson

    His mental status is a far-right-wing bigot, desperately afraid that the black man in office will do something for which he can be praised. Anything and everything Klayman does is purely rational when viewed from that filter. No mental deficiencies of any kind needed.

    With perhaps a little dollop of shameless self-promotion with the aim of riding the gravy train somehow. Grifters gotta grift.

    Does anyone else remember when arbitrary travel restrictions were seen as a hallmark of oppressive Communist regimes?

    Now we have the parties that routinely demand freedom from Obama’s tyranny threatening to file suit to demand arbitrary travel restrictions. In the name of defending freedom, of course.

  • brucegee1962

    Nutcases like Klayman aside, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that drastically restricted travel from Ebola countries is a pretty good idea. We’re kind of lucky that the one patient ended up in Dallas — if he’d ended up in someplace like Mexico City, Jakarta, or, FSM forbid, most cities in India, we could be looking at thousands or even millions more casualties. Not to mention the fact that terrorists trying to weaponize the virus seems like an entirely reasonable thing to fear.

    Just because the forces of evil like to use fear as one of their primary weapons, doesn’t mean that judicious fear isn’t sometimes justified. This is starting to seem like one of those cases.

  • D. C. Sessions

    IANAL, of course, but the last time I checked, “I might have been infected if …” doesn’t count as an injury in determining standing to sue. This is something that those on the Right should be glad about if you consider the alternative.

  • Chiroptera

    (a complaint that will go straight into the circular file, where it belongs)

    I’m guessing that it doesn’t just get thrown away. I don’t know for certain, but I’m guessing that whatever action or non-action is taken, the complaint has to be logged and filed away somewhere.

    So that historians, in some distant future, examing out society will say, “What the hell was wrong with those people?”

  • John Pieret

    I don’t know for certain, but I’m guessing that whatever action or non-action is taken, the complaint has to be logged and filed away somewhere.

    Yeah, it will be. But the judge will get it off his/her docket in short order.

    historians, in some distant future, examing out society will say, “What the hell was wrong with those people?”

    They’ll have plenty of other evidence for that.

  • Michael Heath

    Larry Klayman’s lawsuit:

    . . . immigration from all Muslim nations where terrorists have a beachhead must also be immediately stopped.

    Using that logic, it’d be far more effective for the U.S. to instead prohibit all immigration from countries who have traffic deaths.

    I admire the writing of some of the judges ruling on marriage equality. When presented with idiotic, factually incorrect, and illogical claims, they have not shied away from calling BS where they see it. For example, take Judge John Heyburn II, of Kentucky. If he were to asked to hear Klayman’s `case’, he might reply in a similar way to his dismissal of the claims of the defendants in the recent marriage equality appeal: `These arguments are not those of serious people.’

    There is an offence named `barratry’, the instigation or pursuit of groundless litigation, and it is a crime in some places. Just saying.

  • vmanis1

    Slight correction of the previous comment: I had meant to say that Heyburn is a Federal Court judge, in Kentucky.

    What does it take to get classed as a ‘vexatious litigator’ in the US?

  • http://timgueguen.blogspot.com timgueguen

    Someone, someplace probably has a good case against Klayman, for damages caused by regular facepalming after reading his nonsense.

  • http://www.pandasthumb.org Area Man

    It’s funny how, among right-wingers, litigiousness is seen as a sign of society’s decay and the means by which those whiny liberals are always bullying people. Unless of course you’re the one who’s doing the frivolous litigating, in which case the mere fact of your lawsuit is proof that you’re the victim.
