Birther attorney Philip Berg called birther queen Orly Taitz’s actions “deplorable” this week before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, in a hearing related to his libel suit against Taitz.
Berg, most notable for filing the first-ever birther lawsuit against President Obama in 2008, appeared opposite Taitz before the court after a federal judge in California declined to dismiss Berg’s complaint (and threatened sanctions against Taitz).
During the hearing, Berg, accused Taitz of acting “with malice,” saying: “They’ve decided that they’re going to get rid of me politically in a certain case. To do that they’re decided to get rid of me by taking down my paralegal.”
From Courthouse News:
Taitz, usually the plaintiff in unsuccessful challenges to the legitimacy of Obama’s presidency, faces a civil suit alleging that she and her organization, Defend Our Freedoms Foundation, defamed attorney Philip Berg and his paralegal, Lisa Liberi.
Berg and Liberi say Taitz found Liberi’s personal information, including her Social Security number, and then mass-emailed the information and published it online.
