Epperly vs. State of Alaska
and The United States of America

Adobe PDF    Epperly vs. State of Alaska vs. The United States of America

A "Petition for a Redress of Grievance" was filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska on April 15, 2015.  The "Petition" was filed to resolve a controversy of laws that exist with the use of "Marijuana" between the State of Alaska and The United States of America.

 

Adobe PDF    State of Alaska's "Motion to Dismiss"

State of Alaska filed a "Motion to Dismiss" pleading "Failure to State a Claim" and "Want of Standing" for Mr. Epperly to bring his "Petition for Redress of Grievance" before the U.S. District Court.  An "Exception and Opposition" has been filed.

 

Adobe PDF    Epperly's Opposition to State of Alaska's "Motion to Dismiss"

Mr. Epperly filed an "Opposition" to the State of Alaska's "Motion to Dismiss."  Also filed was a "Motion for Summary Judgment on the Pleadings."  Mr. Epperly believes that he has destroyed the "Motion to Dismiss."


Adobe PDF    State of Alaska's Reply To "Opposition To Motion To Dismiss, And Opposition to Motion For Summary Judgment"

State of Alaska has submitted its reply to Mr. Epperly's Opposition to "State's Motion to Dismiss" and Opposes Epperly's "Motion for Summary Judgment."  Mr. Epperly agreed with the Opposition to the "Summary Judgment" and had the "Motion" removed from the Record of the Court.

 

Adobe PDF    United State's "Motion to Dismiss"

The Respondent, "The United States of America," has submitted its "Motion To Dismiss."  The Petitioner, Gordon Warren Epperly, has "Objected" to the "Motion."

 

Adobe PDF    Epperly's "Objection" to United State's "Motion to Dismiss"

The Petitioner, Gordon Warren Epperly has filed his "Objection" to the United States "Motion to Dismiss."  Does Mr. Epperly have "standing" to obtain a "Declaratory Judgment" regarding the use of "Marijuana"?

 

Adobe PDF    United State's "Reply" to Epperly's "Objection to 'Motion to Dismiss'"

The Respondent, "The United States of America," has submitted its "Reply" to Mr. Epperly's "Opposition to 'United States Motion to Dismiss'."  Attached to the United States "Reply" is the Court Case which Attorney Richard L. Pomeroy has relied upon to show that Mr. Epperly has no "standing" to present a "Petition for Redress of  Grievance" requesting "Declaratory Judgments."  Notwithstanding the assertion of Attorney Richard L. Pomeroy, the attached case of "Montana Environmental Information Center v. Stone-Manning, 766 F.3d 1184"  shows that Mr. Epperly has "standing" and the pertinent parts of that case are "boxed" with sideline comments.

 

Adobe PDF    Motion to include text of "5 USC 701-706" & "Court Case"

The Attorney for the Respondent, "The United States of America" continues to allege that the Petitioner, Gordon Warren Epperly has no "standing" to question the policy of the U.S. Attorney General to delegate the "Powers" of the U.S. Congress and the U.S. President to regulate and execute the "Federal Control Substance Laws" on "Marijuana" to the States of the Union.  "Title 5 of the United States Code at Sections 701 thru 706" should put the question of "standing" to rest.  The Attorney for the Respondent, "State of Alaska" has taken the position that under the doctrine of "Federalism," the States of the Union are not subject to the "Federal Control Substance Law" as that law applies to "Marijuana."  The case of "United States of America v. Michael Carl Visman, 919 F.2d 1390" says otherwise.

Adobe PDF   Court Order - Motions to Dismiss Petitioner's "Petition for Redress of Grievance" GRANTED WITH PREJUDICE

On November 5th, 2015; Judge Sharon L. Gleason of the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska has "dismissed" Gordon Warren Epperly's "Petition for Redress of Grievance" with prejudice.  This is no surprise. The "Court Order" merely states that the Petitioner had no authority (standing) to bring forth a "Petition for Redress of Grievance" before the Court.  There are no statements made within the "Court Order" that shows the allegations of the Petitioner were not true.

COMMENT: A "Notice of Appeal" will not be filed as it would be a waste of time.  It is common knowledge that ProSe litigants have no standing before the Courts for want of paying monetary tributes to the Members of the BAR.

In this case of the United States of America vs. Brian Justin Pickard, et.al., U.S. District Court No. 2:11-cr-449-KJM, the federal government charged 16 Persons in a Sacramento federal court with a single charge of conspiracy to grow 1,000 or more marijuana plants between Feb 2008 and October 2011 in Trinity and Tehama counties.  1,000 plants is the magic number that makes the minimum sentence (with a couple of small exceptions) upon conviction 10 years in prison; 100 or more marijuana plants nets at least 5 years in prison.  Several of the Defendants moved the Court to dismiss the Indictment which was denied on April 17, 2015.

More Lawsuits Against State of Colorado

 

Adobe PDF  Judgment Affirmed - Brandon Coats vs. Dish Network, L.L.C. New

The “Marijuana Ballot Initiative” of the State of Colorado was worded almost identical to the “’Marijuana Ballot Initiative No. 2' (2014)” of the State of Alaska and other States of the Union.  In these “Ballot Initiatives,” the Sponsors used the word “lawful” throughout. As the use of the word “lawful” is identical to each of those “Marijuana Ballot Initiatives,” the definition of that word “lawful” as given by the June 15, 2015 Colorado State Supreme Court must be given to the word “lawful” as used within those “Ballot Initiatives"

"Coats contends that the General Assembly intended the term “lawful” here to mean “lawful under Colorado state law,” which, he asserts, recognizes medical marijuana use as “lawful.”  Coats, Ά 6, 303 P.3d at 149.  We do not read the term “lawful” to be so restrictive.

"The CSA lists marijuana as a Schedule I substance, meaning federal law designates it as having no medical accepted use, a high risk of abuse, and a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision.  Id. at § 812(b)(1)(A)–(C).  This makes the use, possession, or manufacture of marijuana a federal criminal offense, except where used for federally-approved research projects.  Id. at § 844(a); see also Gonzales v. Raich, 545 U.S. 1, 14 (2005).  There is no exception for marijuana use for medicinal purposes, or for marijuana use conducted in accordance with state law.  21 U.S.C. § 844(a); see also Gonzales, 545 U.S.at 29 (finding that “[t]he Supremacy Clause unambiguously provides that if there is any conflict between federal and state law, federal law shall prevail,” including in the area of marijuana regulation). Coats’s use of medical marijuana was unlawful under federal law and thus not protected by [Colorado State Law] section 24‑34‑402.5.
”


As the laws of the government of "The United States of America" makes unlawful the use of "Marijuana," the use of "Marijuana" is also unlawful in all States.
