- Law Cases

(Nov. 29, 2012) — On Monday, December 3, 2012 at 9:00 EST, a trial will take place at the “Monroe County Criminal Court” in Madisonville for Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III, who was accused of taking government documents out of a courtroom on December 7, 2011.
Atty. Van Irion of Knoxville has represented Fitzpatrick since August 20, 2012. In a motions hearing on October 3, Irion argued that the grand jury foreman, Faye Tennyson, was not eligible to serve, as she had served in 2011 and was familiar with Fitzpatrick and the charge against him. Tennessee state law prohibits jurors from serving consecutive terms, although Tennessee courts routinely ignore the statute. Judges in Tennessee have reportedly selected grand jury foremen “from wherever they choose” without verifying that they meet the requirements as set forth by law.
Also on October 3, several observers of the court proceedings stated that Ms. Tennyson did not appear fully aware of the significance of the indictment she signed against Fitzpatrick because of her age, which is described as something between 84 and 90.
Donations to offset Fitzpatrick’s legal expenses are still being accepted by Irion’s office. Fitzpatrick has been exposing corruption within the grand juries, trial juries, and greater judicial system in Tennessee for the past three years after he filed a complaint of treason against Barack Hussein Obama for violating the Posse Comitatus Act. After having been obstructed from advancing the complaint with the Monroe County grand jury, Fitzpatrick discovered that the acting foreman had served in the position for 28 years without an appointing order or evidence that he had ever been sworn in.
Laws passed by the Tennessee legislature in 1984 ordered the criminal courts to reorganize into districts but were never implemented. Fitzpatrick has therefore called into question the court’s legitimacy, which Judge Walter C. Kurtz has claimed is intact.
Kurtz also cited a 1972 judicial opinion which stated that a foreman could be reappointed by a judge for an unlimited number of terms, refusing to take notice of the 1984 laws which trumped previous opinions and statutes. A former chief justice of the Tennessee Supreme Court has stated that “court rules” and “decisional law” are equivalent to statutes passed by the people’s representatives in the legislature.
On November 27, 30 courthouses and “government buildings” in Tennessee received bomb threats from an as-yet unidentified person. Fitzpatrick wants the FBI to investigate William L. Bryan, who took responsibility for calling law enforcement about an alleged “courthouse takeover” plot planned for the day of an assignment hearing for Fitzpatrick in another case on April 20, 2010, which resulted in the imprisonment of Darren Wesley Huff despite no crime having been committed.
Bryan is an Obama supporter and allegedly foiled investigations into Obama’s history and documentation. Transcripts of court hearings involving Huff and Fitzpatrick have been placed in the hands of Obama supporters prior to their delivery to the defendants, if such delivery was ever effected at all, and have been described as “doctored” by defendants other than Huff and Fitzpatrick. A media propaganda campaign has been ongoing against Fitzpatrick and Huff, naming them as members of a “right wing fringe group.”
“It’s not a coincidence that these bomb threats are being issued to courthouses the week before my next hearing,” Fitzpatrick told The Post & Email. “The court date is not a secret.” While the Madisonville courthouse was not included in the threats on Tuesday, Fitzpatrick said that Bryan “could try to pull another April 20, 2010.” To the public’s knowledge, Bryan was never apprehended or questioned about his alleged report to the FBI which turned out to be false. “I don’t want to get caught in a trap again, and if this happens next week at the Monroe County courthouse on the third of December, people better start paying attention,” he said.
Both Fitzpatrick and Huff have been labeled “Sovereign Citizens” and their photos placed in a law enforcement training program circulated nationally. Both deny being part of the “Sovereign Citizen extremist” movement identified by the FBI as one of its top five priorities. The Department of Justice has to date refused to release any documentation about the deployment of more than 100 law enforcers on April 20, 2010 when no violence or “takeover” had been planned. The deployment reportedly cost the community almost $500,000. Tennessee government has also refused to release any information, although a final Open Records request was promised a response by November 30, 2012.
Fitzpatrick claims that the Obama regime is targeting white male military veterans. In August of this year, Marine veteran Brandon Raub was arrested and placed in a psychiatric facility without a warrant or formal charges having been filed after posting song lyrics which the FBI and Secret Service interpreted as “anti-government.” Following the publicizing of his plight, The Rutherford Institute, which defended Raub and filed a civil rights violations lawsuit on his behalf, stated that hundreds of other veterans had contacted them to report “involuntary civil commitments” made by Secret Service and FBI after they made “9/11 truther” statements.
Recently Fitzpatrick has been calling the Sweetwater Police Department to obtain a case number and status of the investigation regarding the report he made to Officer Gary Newman in February of the confiscation of his personal property while he was in jail. After receiving no return call for several days, he was finally told that “a letter was in the mail” pursuant to his inquiry. “There were witnesses watching these people steal things,” Fitzpatrick said. He expressed doubt that the Sweetwater Police Department has taken action on his complaint. Calls made to them by The Post & Email have not been returned.
The public is invited to attend the December 3 hearing.
