COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Attorney Orly Taitz filed a brief Thursday morning in Columbus' US District Court requesting for a stay of deployment pending her client's motion for a rehearing.

This comes just one day after Judge Clay Land denied Captain Connie Rhodes' temporary restraining order, dismissed the entire case and ordered Rhodes to pay the defendant's court costs.

Rhodes, a military doctor, is challenging deployment orders to Iraq based on allegations that the Commander in Chief is ineligible to hold the office of president.  Rhodes maintains that President Barack Obama was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. 

"This is outrageous and a mischaracter of justice.   I think that Judge Land should be sanctioned for judicial misconduct. He has violated my client's civil rights by denying her a trial by jury and not giving us 20 days to respond before making a decision, " says Taitz.

Judge Land also stated in his ruling that he would sanction Taitz if she filed any future actions in his court that were similarly "frivolous".

Judge Land was not available for comment.
