The following is a notice from the federal court electronic filing system:
IMPORTANT: IMPORTANT NOTICE OF REDACTION RESPONSIBILITY: All filers must redact: Social Security or taxpayer-identification numbers; dates of birth; names of minor children; financial account numbers; and, in criminal cases, home addresses, in compliance with Fed. R. App. P. 25(a)(5), Fed. R. Civ. P. 5.2 or Fed. R. Crim. P. 49.1 or Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9037. This requirement applies to all documents, including attachments.
Birther lawyer (and I use the term loosely) Orly Taitz filed documents with the US District Court for the Central District of California with some of her nutty social-security number stuff. However, instead of fully obliterating the social-security numbers of one innocent victim from Connecticut, her scanned images clearly expose the number along with the fellow’s name and a date of birth for which there was no attempt to obscure.
Orly the Inept, however, miscategorized her filing, and so received a notice of deficiency from the court. So given the opportunity to correct her failure, what does Orly do? Files the same thing again.
Also included in Orly’s filing was the social-security number of a deceased person, something that is public information. I will show that following in order to demonstrate the sloppy redaction.
