DR. TAITZ’S BRIEF EXPLAINS INJUSTICE OF CLAY D. LAND’S RULING
by Sharon Rondeau
(Dec. 9, 2009) — On December 7, 2009, Dr. Orly Taitz, attorney for Major Stefan Cook, has filed an appeal to her case Cook v. Good with the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta, Georgia. The briefs were received by the court today as posted on Dr. Taitz’s website, www.orlytaitzesq.com. Dr. Taitz had filed a notice with the Federal District Court in Columbus, Georgia, back on Sept. 15th. The Post & Email summarized the history of the case in its report on Sept. 15th.
The original case, Major Stephen Cook vs. Colonel Wanda Good et al., was dismissed on July 16, 2009, by Judge Clay D. Land. Taitz argues in her appellant brief, that the court did not provide sufficient time to respond to the Motion to Dismiss and that the court erred by “disregarding most of the facts of the case.”
Taitz cites the loss of Cook’s $120,000 job at the defense contracting company, Simtech, as “the injury”which should have given Cook standing before the court, stating that Land’s “omitting the issue of pressure applied on the plaintiff’s employer to have him fired from his $120,000 a year job represents a clear error of material fact, which justifies reversal of the order to dismiss.”
Regarding the two other military officers who were also plaintiffs, Taitz states that “the court assumed facts not in evidence and ignored facts in evidence.”
The appellant brief filed by Attorney Taitz is the first step to obtaining a hearing with the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. That Court will now consider whether to grant such an appeal, and if so, to assign dates for the trial.
