National Action Network: Court Forces Slavery

DETROIT  -- In a unprecedented maneuver by the Oakland County Probate Court, a local businessman has found himself in a position of forced slavery which was abolished by the 13th Amendment over 140 years ago.

Most recently Oakland County Probate Judge Eugene Moore ordered that the businessman work for the company at a rate which is less than proper compensation.  Such a system, which is reminiscent of peonage, relegates the individual to involuntary servitude.  This is a violation of constitutional guarantees which are fundamental to a free society. Wars have been fought and soldiers have died to ensure the basic civil right of freedom to work.

The Oakland County Circuit Court is hearing an appeal of the probate decision on Wednesday August 25th in the courtroom of Judge Rudy Nichols, at 8:30 AM at the Oakland County Courthouse, 1200 Telegraph Road, Pontiac Michigan .

The Michigan chapter of the National Action Network and other grass roots organizations across the country are monitoring this case closely and shall have representatives in attendance at the court.
