Lawyer Montgomery Blair Sibley’s recent representation of the “D.C. Madam” Deborah Palfrey does not seem to be making him a rich man. In a recent filing with the Supreme Court, Sibley revealed that he earns $3,700 a month, for an annual total of $44,400, and drives a 2004 Mazda. Sibley offered the data to gain “pauper status” with the Supremes — entitling him to skip the “insurmountable barrier” of paying the Court’s $300 filing fee and the costs of printing 40 copies of his petition. Why was he knocking on the high court’s door? It’s complicated, but he was suing the justices for “judicial treason” because they participated in an earlier case in which he had sued them for not taking a still earlier case. Got that? The Court did. Seven justices recused on Oct. 29, creating an absence of a quorum. That means the lower court ruling, which was adverse to Sibley, stands. But he appeared undaunted. “It’s been a six-year effort, and I still have three more petitions before them,” says Sibley.
