Blacks File $100 Million Lawsuit Against Atlanta Judges for Civil Rights Violation

Article Editor: Christopher Laird Simmons

ATLANTA, GA - September 20, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- On Monday, Sept. 13, Linda McKeever Bullard, a freelance writer, and Robert D. Bullard, a professor at Clark Atlanta University, filed a $100 million lawsuit against four Fulton County, Ga. Superior Court judges (Doris L. Downs, Alice D. Bonner, Alford J. Dempsey, Jr., and Constance C. Russell) charging them with discrimination and violation of their constitutional rights. This is a civil rights lawsuit alleging discrimination against pro se plaintiffs-individuals who choose to exercise their constitutional right guaranteed under the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, to represent themselves-who bring civil suits in Fulton County Superior Court.

The Bullards, African Americans, brought the action on behalf of themselves and all other pro se plaintiffs, most of whom are African Americans, who have filed civil lawsuits in Fulton County Superior Court.

This case stems from a lawsuit in which McKeever Bullard obtained a judgment in 2004 against her white neighbor for illegally cutting down her trees while standing on her property and over her objection. In that suit the defendant judges, according to the allegations, sought to shield the white neighbor and his white landscaper from any and all liability.

"To see these white men trespass on my property, cut down my trees in front of my very eyes, and not stop when I demanded them to stop, made me feel like a 'nigger' on my own property," said McKeever Bullard. "And when I get to court on an open-and-shut case of trespassing, I was again made to feel the same, because I chose to represent myself. No judge has the right to make me a second-class citizen."

Defendant Fulton County Superior Court Judge Doris L. Downs summarily dismissed Robert Bullard's name from the case, even though he was not given notice of a status conference hearing in May 2002.

"No one contacted me about a status hearing. I had a right to be heard at the status hearing regarding property that I have paid the mortgage on religiously since 1994," said Bullard. "When Judge Downs struck through my name, she denied me my right to represent myself."

Bullard has served as an expert witness on countless civil rights cases and has written more than a dozen award-winning books on the subject. "I never imagined this nightmare would happen to me."
