O'Quinn v. Exxon Mobil Corp., 2006 WL 2795333(E.D.Tex. Sep 27, 2006) (NO. CIV A 606CV307)
Judge: Michael Schneider / Judith Guthrie
Holding: Complaint DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE
Plaintiff, proceeding pro se, alleges that Exxon violated his constitutional rights by failing to pay royalties to him. The complaint also alleges that Governor Rick Perry, Texas Comptroller Carol Strayhorn, Smith County Judge Becky Dempsey, Smith County Court Clerk Judy Carnes, Henderson County Judge David Holstein, Henderson County Court Clerk Gwen Moffeit, Rusk County Judge Sandra Hodges and Rusk County Court Clerk Joyce Lewis violated his constitutional rights for their participation in depriving him of his “birthright royalty and funds” and seeks $100 billion dollars in relief. Plaintiff states that he is suing judges, court clerks, the Texas Comptroller and the Governor of Texas because he mailed complaints to their offices and no action was taken.
It was a close call, but Judge Guthrie recommended dismissal with prejudice, and Judge Schneider agreed.
