Tribal Court Judge files Mandamus suit Fed Courthouse for 'discretion' Dispute with Magistrate

African-American Muslim man serving as Chief Judge of an Indian tribal court files lawsuit against Fed Court for racial injustice in 'judicial abuse dispute'
FREMONT, Calif. - Nov. 15, 2022 - PRLog -- Last Friday, the 9th U.S. Court of Appeals opened a 'mandamus' suit against the United States District Court in San Jose, CA, filed by Indian Tribal Court Judge, who has been in the custody of the United States Marshal Services at Santa Rita Jail since September.

The case of "In re: Cary Peterson v. USDC-CASJ" (a court-issued short version of the actual case title on the court papers filed by Costanoan Tribal Court Justice Cary Lee Peterson) follows court action at Silicon Valley's courthouse, as previously reported in the news this month.

These federal court hearings resulted in Peterson's defense council, Jessie Ortiz, impeaching a government witness during testimony. Court records show this witness (Anthony Cardenas) worked as a federal probation officer who had been assigned to monitor Peterson.

Peterson asked Judge Cousins whether his reason for denying his release from jail upon his legal council impeaching the DOJ's witness was because he was "too Muslim, too Black, or not good enough" to be a Judge for an Indian tribal court. Judge Cousins had no response to Peterson's question stated on the court record.
