Unpublished Disposition, 899 F.2d 18 (9th Cir. 1990)Annotate this Case
William HENSHALL, Plaintiff-Appellant,v.STATE OF CALIFORNIA, Defendant-Appellee.
United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.
Submitted March 16, 1990.* Decided March 21, 1990.
Before CHAMBERS, WIGGINS and NOONAN, Circuit Judges.
William Henshall seeks removal to the federal district court "pursuant to exclusive grant of admiralty jurisdiction" of a case brought against him for statutory violations of the California Vehicle Code in San Jose Municipal Court. His removal petition was dismissed by the district court. We affirm.
Henshall sets out that he is "a free white sui juris inhabitant of the California Republic" and protected by the Constitution of the United States. He has arrived at the conclusion that the State of California is exercising "the hated and despised admiralty jurisdiction" in its charges against him. His arguments are unpersuasive.
