Atakapa Indian de Creole Nation v. Louisiana, No. 19-30032 (5th Cir. 2019)Annotate this Case
Plaintiff, a lawyer who is self-described as a monarch and a deity, brought claims on behalf of an Indian tribe alleging that defendants have, among other misdeeds, monopolized "intergalactic foreign trade." The district court dismissed the action based on sovereign immunity. The Fifth Circuit affirmed the district court's dismissal on an alternative basis, holding that plaintiff's claims were frivolous and the district court lacked jurisdiction to entertain them.
