21 DISMISSAL OF PLAINTIFFS MARKHAM ROBINSON AND WILEY S.
22 DRAKE
23 Plaintiffs Markham Robinson and Dr. Wiley S. Drake (hereinafter referred to
24 as "PLAINTIFFS"), through their attorney, Gary G. Kreep, hereby respecfully submit
25 this ex parte application to the Court for an order vacating the Notice of Voluntary
26 Dismissal without Prejudice (hereinafter referred to as "NOTICE") that was filed by
27 Dr. Orly Taitz on August 1, 2009 on the following grounds:
28 (1) Prior to filing NOTICE, Dr. Orly Taitz refused to sign PLAINTIFFS'

EX PARTE APPLICATION FOR ORDER VACATING VOLUNTARY DISMISSAL


1 Requests for Substitution of Attorney, which were mailed to her office on
2 July 24, 2009 (See Exhibits "1" and "2", copies of which are attached hereto
3 and made a part thereof).
4 (2) PLAINTIFFS were not notified of Dr. Taitz's plan to file NOTICE on
5 their behalf (See Declarations of Markham Robinson and Dr. Wiley S.
6 Drake, submitted herewith).
7 (3) PLAINTIFFS did not consent to being dismissed from the case, and they
8 intended to remain as plaintiffs in the matter (See Declarations of Markham
9 Robinson and Dr. Wiley S. Drake).
10 This motion is made ex parte because there is a risk that PLAINTIFFS'
11 interests might be prejudiced and irreparably hanned if PLAINTIFFS are not able to
12 remain in the case with their preferred counsel as their representative. Prior to the
13 filing of this motion, PLAINTIFFS were both named as plaintiffs and then unilaterally
14 dismissed by Dr. Taitz without their knowledge or consent. Since PLAINTIFFS and
15 their rights will be directly affected by the resolution of this case, an ex parte
16 application is necessary in order to ensure that PLAINTIFFS can promptly and
17 effectively protect their rights as the case moves forward. Furthermore, there is no
18 risk that the opposing parties in this case will be prejudiced by the granting of the
19 order ex parte since the application deals only with the PLAINTIFFS' participation as
20 plaintiffs in this case, a status which they had prior to the above-discussed action of
21 Dr. Taitz.

1 MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES
2 l. INTRODUCTION
3 The initial complaint in this matter was filed by Dr. Taitz on January 20, 2009.
4 Dr. Taitz included the names of Mr. Robinson and Dr. Drake as plaintiffs in the
5 complaint, with neither Mr. Robinson's nor Dr. Drake's knowledge or consent. On
6 or before July 13,2009, PLAINTIFFS decided that they would remain as plaintiffs in
7 the present case, but that they preferred to be represented by Mr. Kreep (See
8 Declarations of Markham Robinson and Dr. Wiley S. Drake). On July 20,2009,
9 pursuant to PLAINTIFFS' requests, Mr. Kreep prepared a Request for Approval of
10 Substitution of Attorney and an Order on Request for Approval of Substitution of
11 Attorney for both Mr. Robinson and Dr. Drake (See Exhibits "1" and "2"). Upon
12 receiving PLAINTIFFS' signed documents, on July 24, 2009, Mr. Kreep signed the
13 documents and had his law clerk, Elliot Wilson, mail them, via overnight mail, to Dr.
14 Taitz for her signature (See Declaration of Elliot Wilson, submitted herewith). On
15 July 30, 2009, Dr. Taitz sent an email to PLAINTIFFS and informed them that she
16 was refusing to comply with PLAINTIFFS' request for her to sign the Request for
17 Approval of Substitution of Attorney (See Exhibit u3", a copy of which is attached
18 hereto and made a part thereof). On August 1,2009, Dr. Taitz, without PLAINTIFI,S'
19 knowledge or consent, filed NOTICE with the Court (See Exhibit "4", a copy of
20 which is attached hereto and made a part thereof). NOTICE does not contain the
21 signature of Dr. Taitz (See Exhibit "4").
22 In NOTICE, Dr. Taitz alleges that PLAINTIFFS "submit that they have
23 irreconcilable differences with the strategy of the undersigned counsel", that
24 PLAINTIFFS "submit that infighting among allies is among the most
25 counterproductive factors which can possible arise in litigation", that PLAINTIFFS
26 "would aver that they have never previously dismissed any federal or state-court
27 action based on or including the same claims as in the present action", and that
28 PLAINTIFFS "ask this Court to take Notice of and Approve their withdrawal from

4
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
11 EX PARTE APPLICATTON FOR ORDER VACA TTNG VOT .lINT ARY mSMTSSAT.
1 this action" (See Exhibit '"4"). PLAINTIFFS mayor may not agree with the above
2 first three quotes, however, PLAINTIFFS never communicated such claims or
3 sentiments to Dr. Taitz, and, thus, did not '"ask" for, '"submit", or '"aver" anything
4 relating to their dismissal as plaintiffs from this case (See Declarations of Markham
5 Robinson and Dr. Wiley S. Drake).
6 Due to the fact that Dr. Taitz acted unilaterally to dismiss PLAINTIFFS from
7 this case, rather than consenting to their being represented by Mr. Kreep, and due to
8 the fact that PLAINTIFFS wish to remain as plaintiffs in this case and never desired
9 or intended to be dismissed from the matter, the Court should vacate PLAINTIFFS'
10 voluntary dismissal from the case, and reinstate Mr. Robinson and Dr. Drake as
11 plaintiffs, with Mr. Kreep as their counsel of record.
12 II. ARGUMENT
13 Pursuant to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (hereinafter referred to as
14 '"FRCP") § 60, the Court may vacate PLAINTIFFS' voluntary dismissal from the
15 case. FRCP § 60 provides that "[o]n motion and upon such terms as are just, the court
16 may relieve a party ... from a final judgment, order, or proceeding for ... any other
1t
17 reason justifying relief from the operation ofthejudgment. FRCP § 60(b)(6). In tIns
18 case, PLAINTIFFS' relief from the dismissal is justified. PLAINTIFFS wish to
19 remain as plaintiffs in the case, and, through their Request for Approval of
20 Substitution of Attorney, they clearly expressed their intent to Dr. Taitz to do so, prior
21 to her filing of NOTICE (See Exhibits '"I" and '"2"). Dr. Taitz refused to cooperate
22 with PLAINTIFFS' requests to substitute Mr. Kreep as their attorney, and Dr. Taitz
23 went behind PLAINTIFFS' backs in an attempt to have PLAINTIFFS dismissed from
24 the case to avoid allowing PLAINTIFFS to be represented by an attorney of their
25 choosing. Since PLAINTIFFS wish to remain named as plaintiffs in the case, and
26 since they did not consent to Dr. Taitz's filing of NOTICE dismissing them from the
27 case, the Court should find that relief is justified, and it should vacate PLAINTIFFS'
28 dismissal.

III. CONCLUSION
2 Based on the reasons set forth above, PLAINTIFFS respectfully request that
3 the Court grant PLAINTIFF's ex parte application to grant an order vacating the
4 voluntary dismissal and reinstate PLAINTIFFS as plaintiffs in this case, with Mr.
5 Kreep as their attorney of record.

Mr. Gary G. Kreep

Mr. Wiley S. Drake

Mr. Markham Goo Robinson


932 "D" St., Suite 3

Ramona, California 92065

Dear Messrs. Creep, Drake, and Robinson:

You put me in a rather awkward position! Based on prior experience, ealier this year,
it is my opinion that Gary G. Kreep and I simply do not make a good legal team.
Naturally this is no reflection on Mr. Kreep or (in my opinion) on me either: an eagle and
a dolphin might well think highly of one another, but typically they cannot and should
not even attempt to work together. For my part, I am in the midst of developing new
strategies for the Obama litigation, and I am very optimistic, but I have neither the time nor
the inclination to fight with any more people than is necessary for our side to win, and I'm
sure you will agree that infighting is a terrible thing, and has probably destroyed more
patriotic causes than all enemy actions combined.

For that reason, and since no Defendant has appeared or answered, much less filed an
answer or motion for summary judgment, you may indeed "drop out" of the case without
adverse publicity of any kind. I urge you to do so. Ri;e 41(a) of the Federal Rules of
Civil Procedure permits voluntary dismissal without prejudice of a case under these
circumstances, and even ifthere were a negative article or two concerning the point, which
lETTER TO DR/\KE AND ROBINSON.doc • http://mail.google.cOmle '?ui=2&ik=2ebOOc22d6&vie w=att&th= 1...

I doubt, it would be better than setting the stage for infighting regarding strategy,
procedure, and timing between me and NIr. Kreep.

Accordingly, it is my present intention NOT to sign the Request for Approval of


Substitution of Attorney signed by you two and Mr. Kreep.

If Mr. Kreep will simply and expeditiously file a Rule 41 (a) Motion for Voluntary
Dismissal without prejudice on behalf of his clients only, or if you two wish to do so in
propia persona, then the new 50 or so new (mostly military) Plaintiffs who were added
onto my case by the First Amended Complaint can proceed quite well without Mr.
IZreep's assistance, and Mr. Kreep can refile on your behalf(Mr. Markham & Mr. Drake)
in Federal or State Court, wherever he sees best. I do not believe that severing this
litigation will be injurious to any party or to the movement as a whole, or even to the
specific litigation before Judge Carter. It has been my honor to represent you both and I
wish you and Mr. Kreep the very best of luck in whatever separate patriotic course of
action you may choose to take.

I hope I will hear from you all expeditiously.

Yours very truly,

Dr. Orly Taitz

Plaintiffs Wiley S. Drake and Markham G. Robinson have communicated
16
through their preferred counsel Gary G. Kreep that they do not wish to be

19
IRRECONCILABLE DIFFERENCES WITH COUNSEL
X)
These Plaintiffs submit that they have irreconcilable differences with the
21
strategy of the undersigned counsel. For her part, the undersigned counsel for all
22
other Plaintiffs respectfully submits and states in good faith that she cannot
23
effectively work or cooperate with these Plaintiffs' proposed counsel Gary G. Kreep,
24
and that no involuntary association of counsel in a complex and highly contentious
25
case such as the present, highly emotionally charged and politically sensitive
2fj
litigation is likely to yield positive: results. One of the plaintiffs filing notice herein
Z7
has made public comments with which the undersigned counsel does not agree.

3 \\,'herefore, Plaintiffs Wiley S. Drake and Markham G. Robinson serve notice,


4 pursuant to Rule 41 (a)(l )(A)(i) of voluntary dismissal and withdrawal of their names
5 as Plaintiffs in the above-entitled and numbered cause of action, reserving to
6 themselves the right to pursue similar or parallel or distinct litigation in any court of
-; I competent jurisdiction, state or federal. Plaintiffs and the undersigned counsel
8 submit that infighting among allies is among the most counterproductive factors
9! which can possibly arise in litigation.
10 According to Rule 41(a)(1)(A)(i) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
11 Plaintiffs may voluntarily dismiss their cause of action without a court order by filing
12 their Notice of Dismissal before the opposing party serves either an answer or a
13 motion for summary judgment. No opposing party has served either an answer or a
14 motion for summary judgment in the present case. No opposing party has filed a
15 counterclaim, nor has any opposing party filed any motion adverse to the interests of
16 these plaintiffs whatsoever.
17 These Plaintiffs file their Notice of Voluntary Dismissal without Prejudice,
18 and would aver that they have never previously dismissed any federal or state-court
19 action based on or including the same claims as in the present actioll, so that pursuant
X) to Rule 41 (a) (1 )(B) there is no reason or cause for considering that these plaintiffs'
21 notice of voluntary dismissal should or could operate as an adjudication on the merits
22 of any aspect of their claims.
23 PRAYER FOR RELIEF
24 WHEREFORE, Plaintiffs WILEY S. DRAKE and MARKHAM G.
25 ROBINSON ask this Court to take Notice of and Approve their withdrawal from this
2fj action and voluntary dismissal of their names from the list of Plaintiffs, without
n prejudice to their refiling their claims at some future date in any court of competent
28 jurisdiction, state or federal.
