King Solomon would approve this decision: nobody won, but justice was done!

Dr. Orly Taitz’ undistinguished (disgraceful, dishonest, and extremely informal and undignified) attack on her former “greatest admirer” Charles Edward Lincoln resulted in a January 12 hearing in U.S. District (Magistrate Judge Lurana Snow’s) Court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, which lasted five hours running into “overtime.”  This dull proceeding was attended by several witnesses, several lawyers including top-notch Philadelphia attorney Philip J. Berg for Lincoln, and an audience of two (possibly homeless but definitely unemployed) paid bloggers.  After the hearing, Lisa Ostella produced an affidavit on Lincoln’s behalf which basically demolished both of the two shreds of credibility that Orly Taitz had ever had in her life.  And, ironically, both Lincoln and Ostella had formerly been both fans AND close working associates of Dr. Taitz in her quest for small-time radio-talk show interviews nationwide.

Nothing else of any note happened that day or after.  Judge Lurana Snow “split the baby” and denied sanctions while simultaneously denying any clear vindication to the injured parties, or any punishment to the lying party.  Nobody “won”, but a calm version of justice prevailed, and the case-in-chief will go forward, thanks to Judge Dimitrouleas’ order of last Friday that U.S. Bank should answer the 4 out of 7 remaining counts of Plaintiffs’ original Complaint.  On PACER:
