MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Dec. 21, 2015 Pamela Moses aka P. Moses, filed an Amended Federal Complaint for Retaliation and other Civil Rights Violations in the United States Western District Court against Shelby County’s District Attorney Amy Weirich. The Class Action case is assigned Federal James D. Todd of U.S. District of Tennessee of Jackson. This filing comes after continually suspected corruption, and heavy criticism of Amy Weirich’s administration in the handling of many prosecutions in Shelby County. The Complaint alleges that Moses was arrested on false charges, last December in retaliation for political comments, allegedly made against a Judge Phyllis Gardner on Facebook. On October 7, 2015, Circuit Court Judge Robert Weiss entered an order allowing Gardner to dismiss her Petition for Order of Protection against Moses.
According to the complaint, Moses seeks to add over 200 or more persons to the Class Action Lawsuit. In a recent interview, Moses said, “I was falsely arrested seven days before Christmas, held without any Due Process, and denied Bail. I was not formally charged with a crime, and when I was charged none of the charges alleged violence. It was obvious this was personal and done out of sheer malice. I was targeted for utilizing my Freedom of Speech. Others are being held illegally. People have a presumption of innocence, and the continual violation of people’s DUE PROCESS rights is a grave injustice. God gave me this assignment and guided me with this filing. The sole purpose of this case is to free people, and shed light on the systematic pattern of discriminatory practices within the current local government.”
Any persons who suffered beginning December 18, 2014, whose Due Process Rights were violated, by being falsely arrested, by not reading and advising them of their Miranda Rights, stripsearched for nonviolent misdemeanor charges, being held without being seen by a Magistrate or Judge in a reasonable time, or being held on an excessive Bail, are welcome to join the Class Action Lawsuit. The description of the class is attached. Moses also seeks to uncover Shelby County’s Grand Jury improprieties, and if any person has any discrepancies with their indictments, which bears the name of a person that is a not a licensed attorney, but is listed in the indictment as a prosecutor, they can also join in the Class Action Lawsuit. Moses seeks accountability and massive reform of the Criminal Arrest Process in Shelby County, and she stated that it begins with enforcement of the Tennessee laws and the United States Constitution.
