Judge in Alaska formally dismisses latest frivolous lawsuit against Governor Palin





Last week Stacy brought our attention to the fact that an Alaska judge struck down yet another in a series of meritless lawsuits brought against Governor Palin by Palin-deranged "activists". In this case, Chip Thoma was the hebetudinous anklebiter who brought the legal action. Today, to nobody’s surprise, the judge took the next step and formally dismissed the case, and in so doing ruled that Thoma must reimburse the Governor for the court costs she incurred as a result of his frivolous litigation. Via the AP:

JUNEAU, Alaska — A federal judge has formally dismissed an activist’s lawsuit against former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Last week, U.S. District Judge Timothy Burgess struck down claims brought by activist Chip Thoma, who alleged that Palin acted to silence him for complaining about traffic around the governor’s mansion in 2009.

Thoma had sought at least $100,000 in the case. But Burgess said Thoma did not provide the necessary evidence to support his claims.

In a judgment filed Tuesday, Burgess dismissed the case, saying Thoma will recover nothing, and Palin will recover costs from Thoma.

It wasn’t immediately clear what those costs would total. A private attorney and an attorney for the state were involved in the case on Palin’s behalf.

I have no idea whether or not there are any more of these frivolities, floating around, but if there are they’ll no doubt meet the same fate. The fact that the judge has required Thoma to pay Governor Palin’s legal costs is significant, and should make future filers of frivolous lawsuits think twice. Of course that presupposes an ability on their part to think rationally, which, given the mental acuity of the cretins involved, is probably an overly optimistic assumption.

    The same clown sued Gov. Hickel and had to pay all cost.  He is a repeat offender.

    Justice! Good this numbskull has to pay Governor Palin’s attorney fees.

    • heshtesh

      In the back of my mind i almost wonder if Thoma or the Republican establishment will be paying those bills.
