I have posted about various federal law suits by military officers seeking to avoid deployments because they do not believe President Obama is lawfully the present – here, here, and here.
In one of those posts I asked the question about possible sanctions against the plaintiff and/or the plaintiffs lawyer for bringing frivolous law suits.
The most recent filing was on behalf of Captain Rhodes, a medical doctor who did not want to deploy – posted here, under the title, “They take the Queens shilling.”
Here is a line from an Order by federal district court judge Clay S. Land, dismissing Captain Rhode’s complaint.
After conducting a hearing on Plaintiff’s motion, the Court finds that Plaintiff’s claims are frivolous. Accordingly, her application for a temporary restraining order (Doc. 3) is denied, and her Complaint is dismissed in its entirety. Furthermore, Plaintiff’s counsel is hereby notified that the filing of any future actions in this Court, which are similarly frivolous, shall subject counsel to sanctions. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 11(c).. . .
Defendants shall recover their costs from Plaintiff. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(d).
