Our Title 42 lawsuit against Gov. Herbert, Gov. Cox, Richard Saunders (director of the Utah Department of Health), Senator Stuart Adams, President of the Utah State Senate, and Speaker Brad Wilson, Speaker of the Utah House, was dismissed, "without prejudice," on April 6th due to technicalities. We answered multiple motions for dismissal and amended our 50 causes of action, originally filed at the end of December 2020, down to 30 'more definitive' causes of action, but Judge Christine Johnson found we hadn't fulfilled all of the 'mandatory language' of Civil Rule 4, regarding the service of our summons about the complaint - which was part of the defendant's motions to dismiss. But we will be re-filing our complaint, very soon, and fulfill all of the parts of Civil Rule 4, this time.
As we stated during our 2020 Gubernatorial Campaign, we are committed to filing a successful Civil Rights Complaint (US Title 42 Section 1983) against Gov. Herbert & Cox, et al, regarding their blantant violations of the U.S. and Utah State Constitution. Our original lawsuit, as written contained 50 separate ‘causes of action.’ We filed this Complaint with Fourth District Court, in Utah County, on December 30, 2020., and was Civil Case #200401847. When we refile, we will get a new case number, so watch for that forthcoming info!
Our suit is not the only one in Utah regarding the Covid Response. Actually, as of April 2, 2021, our lawsuit is one of nine (9) Civil Rights lawsuits filed ... out of a total of 40 lawsuits filed since March 2020. Loy Brunson has also filed a lawsuit against every member of the US Congress, both the US Senate and the full House of Representatives! He is seeking over a Billion dollars as formal 'relief,' should he prevail. He filed his suit in US District Court, in Salt Lake City, in late March.
On Tuesday, April 6th, we argued the dismissal motions from both the two attorneys from the Utah Attorney General's office and two attorneys from the Legislative General Counsel office . We are representing ourselves, 'pro se.' We will let you know when we refile and how we are progressing in our next iteration. OK?
During April we are also investigating using a Common Law solution (aka: Grand Jury) for our complaint. More about that as details become available.
More coming later, but this is "Nuff for Now."
