Joe Liska, son of deceased member of Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians, Fred Magee has had another day in court. In an email, Joe details what went on in the case. For those native Americans that are being kept off their tribal rolls or who have been terminated, there's still a chance to show support.
Joe has been out front, mostly alone, taking on the Pechanga Tribe, who are standing by an unconstitutional moratorium on new members. Here's Joe's commentary and it looks like he left a few marks upon Pechanga's lawyers.
I WAS THERE ALONE WITH MY GIRLFRIEND AND THE TRIBE HAD THEIR ONE ATTORNEY (A TOTAL OF THREE PEOPLE IN FRONT OF A FEDERAL JUDGE)!!
THE COURT HAD FIVE PEOPLE LAW CLERKS ALL TAKING NOTES AND COURT TRANSCRIPTS
THE JUDGE TRASHED THE TRIBES ATTORNEY AND STATED THAT MR LISKA IS UNDER SEVERE DETENTION BY THE TRIBE AND I SPOKE OF PEOPLE IN THE MORITORIUM DISENROLLED AND OF THE FAKE FACTION BUTCH MURPHY
THE JUDGE AS IF I FILED A FRAUD REPORT WITH THE FBI SHE ASK WHEN AND WHERE?
I ARGUED THE JESSE SHORT CASE THAT IT WAS MY TRUST LAND AND MEMBER OR NOT THEY ARE MY TRUST PROCEEDS! OP: This will leave a mark and give the judge some precedent.
I STATED ITS NOT TRUE TRIBAL MEMBERS CAN BE SUED AFFECTIVE SEPT 8 2008 CHEROKEE FREEDMAN CASE IN THEIR OFFICAL CAPICITY ! OP: Thank you Chad Smith, for your criminal actions against the Freedmen
FIRST THE ATTORNEY STATED I COMMITTED NO CRIME, THEN WHEN THE JUDGE READ THE EXCLUSION LETTER BANISHMENT HE SAID I BROKE TRIBAL LAWS... .
I GOT UP FOR THE 4TH TIME AND STATED "YOU JUST SAID I COMMITTED NO CRIME NOW SHE READS LETTER I DID A CRIME YOU'RE
CONFUSING THE COURT
MY GIRLFRIEND SAID IT LOOKED LIKE I NEW MORE ABOUT INDIAN THEN THEM ,,,,,,,,THE JUDGE SAID SHE WOULD REVIEW THE JESSE SHORT CASE,,,,WHERE HE WAS A DECEDANT NOT ON TRIBAL ROLLS LIKE ME BUT WAS GIVEN TRUST PROCEEDS FROM HIS LAND,,,,,,,,,,,,
SHE WILL RULE ON PAPER IN A WEEK
OP: Congratulations Mr. Liska, for standing up for your rights and for the rights of others whose rights have been infringed upon.
