Former Employee Randy Rogers No Show for Lawsuit Disposition


This week Mr. Randy Rogers was a no show for his disposition this week and left attorneys hanging, we were unable to make contact with Mr. Rogers. In a previous statement Mr. Rogers referred to himself as a sovereign citizenThe sovereign citizen movement is a loose grouping of American litigants, law breakers, commentators, and financial scheme promoters. Self-described sovereign citizens take the position that they are answerable only to common law and are not subject to any statutes or proceedings at the federalstate or municipal levels, or that they do not recognize U.S. currency and that they are “free of any legal constraints”.[1][2][3] They especially reject most forms of taxation as illegitimate.[4] Participants in the movement argue this concept in opposition to “federal citizens” who, they say, have unknowingly forfeited their rights by accepting some aspect of federal law.[5]

The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) classifies “sovereign citizens” among domestic terror threats as anti-government extremists.[6] In 2010 the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) estimated that approximately 100,000 Americans were “hard-core sovereign believers” with another 200,000 “just starting out by testing sovereign techniques for resisting everything from speeding tickets to drug charges.”[7]

    All that crap he was spewing at the last county commissioners meeting about the people hearing from him. How did that work out Randy?

    The tin foil hat fits Rogers even better than I thought.

    Twilight Zone claims another……could this person’s claims as “sovereign citizen” impact any lawsuit outcomes?

      No his claim will not impact the lawsuit but it might impress the FBI as they have declared that the ‘Sovereign Citizens” is a domestic terrorist group. How will that work out for him and his associate on the board of Commissioners?
