JEFFERSON COUNTY AL: Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall got slammed by United States Federal Court for the Northern District of Alabama, Northeastern Division.
The 5 term Jefferson County ( Birmingham ) Sheriff Mike Hale was defeated in the November 2018 elections. He was defeated by Mark Pettway who took over the reigns of the Sheriff Department in mid January 2019.
The Birmingham/Jefferson County, my last count but has increased, was 105 murders this year. Sheriff Pettway was asked about electronic bingo and he said his focus was drugs and violent crime.
Alabama Attorney General attempted to blast the Sheriff, who blasted back. But Marshall conned Alabama Governor Kay Ivey to the use of ALEA ( Alabama Law Enforcement Agency ) agents and agents of the Alabama Attorney General's Office to conduct raids on electronic bingo.
Governor Ivey and Attorney General Marshall has done nothing to stop the violent deaths that so far in 2019 have claimed more then 105 lives. But they could afford agents on electronic bingo.
The Sheriff's brother, Bruce Pettway and Employer Benefits Consulting, LLC filed a lawsuit against Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall. They were smart enough to file it in the United States Federal Court rather than those under the funding of the Governor.
The suit has strong allegations against Attorney General Steve Marshall. One of which is Marshall told a group of Auburn students in April 2019 that he would " handle the Sheriff ". The complaint alleges that Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall froze $ 240,000.00 through the use of "Alabama Courts" in a forfeiture petition.
Fast forward to page 8 of the ruling by the Federal Court where it Denied Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall's Motion to Dismiss. The Federal Judge pens "Finally, the court specially notes the State's misleading forfeiture petition..."
The order of the Judge talks about Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall filing his forfeiture action in Madison County rather then in Jefferson County. The Plaintiff's allege that Marshall's actions were " politically or personally motivated, have been procedurally tainted, were all with the intent to harass Plaintiff's, and were all in bad faith".
The Federal Judge penned "the forfeiture proceeding itself, no matter how impartially adjudicated, constitutes an constitutional violation if brought for the purposes of bad faith or harassment". '
The Federal Court then denied Steve Marshall's Motion To Dismiss the federal lawsuit.
