Deborah’s jury trial

Deborah’s trial date slides into first place: September 17th thru October 12th. That being said, the defence wants to continue the trial, i.e. move it out to a later date.

Maura Schmierer vs the Tribal Trust: court of appeals outcome

Talk about closure. After 30 years, this happens:

CONCLUSION

{36} We reverse the district court’s determination that Schmeirer’s petition to domesticate her foreign judgment was untimely and that it lacked jurisdiction to set aside the transfers of property to Confianza Trust and Cheptsi-Bah Trust. We therefore remand this matter to the district court on Schmeirer’s claim for enforcement of the California judgment to be decided on the merits.

{37} IT IS SO ORDERED.

Years ago I heard that if this happened it’d be a big deal for case law. I honestly don’t remember the context tho, nor who said it.  So, strike that. We’ll see.

follow the leader

“There have always been those ‘true believers,’ possessing fanatical faiths, incredible dedication, who have been willing to yield their identity to a group and sacrifice their lives for a holy cause. Convinced that they are in possession of some irresistible power and are the sole repositories of ‘the truth,’ zealots of both political and religious causes have time and again engaged in the transcendental game of  follow the leader.”

Martha

Screen Shot 2017-09-16 at 8.42.51 PM

Martha Chavarria joined ACMTC about a year before I left. I remember her as a beautiful younger woman with a sweet and kind heart, or soul, or spirit, or what ever you want to call her essence. Steve (my ex), AKA Philip, married her 6 months after I was kicked out on the street. I was the lucky one.

I was told by one former member that early on in their marriage they had a baby girl, Hannah. In pictures she’s beautiful. According to same ex-member, Steve didn’t go to the hospital with Martha when she went into labor, because according to Lila, Martha was already idolizing her child.

Years later Martha became ill, and per another former member who was there at the time, Martha at least once went to see a doctor while out selling bread, but when Deborah Green found out about it she shamed her in front of everyone. She “wasn’t trusting God. Not good enough. Not seeking God enough.” Or “she had hidden sin.”

So she died and her body’s buried on the Green’s God forsaken land. I saw a picture of her grave with a sign over it that read, “Whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth.”
