California Piracy Suit Headed for Federal Court
By US~Observer Staff
Michigan resident Eugene Isaacson is in the process of preparing a “title 18” lawsuit to be filed Federal District Court in Sacramento, CA (read our background of the Courtland Docks dispute at www.usobserver.com). Isaacson informs us that the suit will be against Shawn Berrigan, Diane House, Edward Bauman, Robert McDaris (owner of Cliff’s Marina), Thomas Decker, Jay Coakley and Sheriff’s Deputy Don Hyatt. Isaacson expects the suit to be filed before the end of February.
In his suit Isaacson is claiming that the above defendants organized a conspiracy to pirate his boat, a “Federally Documented Vessel” and to commit offence or defraud the United States and to attack, to plunder a U.S. vessel. Isaacson is also claiming that the above named defendants “conspired to collect an unlawful debt.” Isaacson states that he will also be suing Deputy Hyatt for “deprivation of rights under color of law.” Further Isaacson is suing Berrigan, House and Coakley under “title 33 U.S.C.” in that he claims they constructed docks and pilings on navigatible waters without authorization of the Secretary of the Army.
The US~Observer has been informed that the CA Attorney General’s Office has been looking into Isaacson’s complaints and that they have started taking the depositions of those involved in the Courtland Docks controversy.
