Texas Federal Court Refuses to Allow Fake Indian to Change Name to “Jeremiah El Bey”

Here is the opinion in In re Cash (N.D. Tex.):

In re Cash

An excerpt:

Cash’s request that he be recognized as a member of the “Aboriginal Cherokee Choctaw” tribe is frivolous. This alleged tribe does not appear to be a recognized Indian tribe and appears, instead, to be related to the “Redemptionist” and/or “sovereign citizen” beliefs that have been discussed at some length by other federal courts. See Johnson-Bey v. Lane, 863 F.2d 1308, 1309 (7th Cir. 1998) (outlining the Moorish movement, which utilizes the suffixes “El” and “Bey” in names to refer to African tribes); Minister Truth Ali Williams v. New Jersey, 2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 150195, 2012 WL 4959488, at *1-3 (D.N.J. Oct. 17, 2012) (discussing in depth pleadings that refer to Cherokee Choctaw Aboriginal Nation and its relationship with Moorish movement). Therefore, Cash’s request that the court legally recognize him as a member of this “tribe” fails to state a claim upon which relief may be granted.
