Laity v Harris – Appeal to the DC District Court of Appeals

Thanks to reader Northland10 for obtaining selected documents from Robert Laity’s appeal to the DC District Court of Appeals of his loss in his quo warranto case against Kama D. Harris in November in the DC District Court. I have previously written about that case in this article, Birther Robert Laity files first action against Kamala Harris questioning eligibility.

The appeal was docketed on November 19th. I believe these are the key documents in the case:

Laity submitted a Statement of Issues on November 20th that was docketed on November 25th:

Laity filed a Motion to Expedite on November 23rd that was docketed on November 30th:

Beth Brinkmann entered an appearance for Vice President Elect Harris and on November 30th filed a Motion for Summary Affirmance:

Laity mailed an opposition in response to the Motion for Summary Affrimance on December 1st that was docketed on December 11th.

On December 16th Harris’ Attorney Beth Brinkmann filed a reply to Laity’s response:

Finally on January 3rd Laity filed a copy of a letter he had sent to Acting Attorney General Rosen renewing his notice of quo warranto against Kamala Harris that he had sent to AG Bill Barr in August.

I hope this all makes sense. It took a bit of work to get the documents in order since at least at the beginning Laity was mailing documents while the attorney for Vice President Elect Harris was filing electronically.

I might add some comments on the filings later.

    Gosh Laity’s empty accusations and elliptical conclusions seem so quaint in 2021. His stylings in nonsense have been overshadowed by the recent Kraken cases as the acorn is the mountain. Thanks for posting! It reads just fine.

    Thanks for doing this.

    There’s really little new here. The government’s motion for summary affirmance covers old ground; it will be granted because Laity lacks standing.

    The only thing new is the further evidence of Laity’s stupidity. For example, Laity says Judge Sullivan should have recused himself because he was nominated by President Obama. Laity never asked the judge to recuse, and President Obama didn’t appoint Judge Sullivan.

    And Laity does himself no favors by comparing himself to Thomas More.

    • You are correct of course about Judge Sullivan. He was appointed to federal court by Bill Clinton and had previously been appointed to DC court positions by Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush. .

      I suppose it fits Laity’s fantasy if he were appointed by Barack Obama.

      In Laity’s response to the Harris Motion for Summary Affirmance he writes:

      “Inattention to this matter and failure to address it would inflict irreparable harm on both the Appellant and the nation.”

      That seems to be by definition a non-particularized injury.

      Oh and all this stuff about standing? It’s unconstitutional:

      “Article III makes no mention of Standing. Neither do the writings of the framers. The definition of standing in Luzon was pulled out of thin air. There is no support in Luzon for any historical or originalist foundation for standing. …”

      He cannot even get the name of the case correct. It is Lujan v. Defenders of Wildlife,

      • Northland10 says:

        I’m assuming he has not actually read Lujan. Actually reading cited cases is probably not part of his legal self-training (just like Lincoln did not read stuff to learn).

        He’ll probably call it some leftist ruling. You know, that opinion composed by the bastion of the left, Antonin Scalia.

  3. 6 days, 2 hours and 49 minutes until Kamala Harris becomes the Vice President of the United States. Oh how is your appeal going Mr. Laity?

  4. Dear Mr. Laity

    If you file any more of your worthless papers in court please refer to Ms. Harris as Vice President Harris.
