Judge C. Ashley Royal presided over Civil Action 5:03-CV -422-2 (CAR) filed on December 15, 2003 in the Middle District of Georgia on behalf of Malachi York and his affiliate organizations, namely the Ancient Egiptian Order, Egiptian Church of Karast “Christ”, Nuwaubian Grand Lodge A.F.& A.M., International Supreme Grand Council of Shriners, and the Yamassee Native Americans Moors of the Creek Nation by a tribal member for false accusations, slander, libelous, and defamation of character for its participation in the Brunswick Christmas Parade on December 6, 2003. Judge Charles Ashley Royal was not suppose to be on Malachi York’s case because according to
28 USC 455 – Sec. 455.
Disqualification of justice, judge, or magistrate judge says in part:
“(a) Any justice, judge, or magistrate judge of the United States shall disqualify himself in any proceeding in which his impartially might reasonably be questioned.
(b) He shall also disqualify himself in the following circumstances:
(1) Where he has a personal
bias or prejudice concerning a party, or personal knowledge of disputed evidentiary facts concerning the proceeding”.
Recusal under Section 455 is self- executing; a party need not file affidavits in support of recusal and the judge is obligated to recuse himself sua sponte “on its own will or motion”.
In December 2003, articles were published in the Brunswick News, Associated Press and other media outlets throughout the state of Georgia prior to the start of Dr. York’s January 5, 2004 trial further contributing to media saturation and negative pre-trial publicity and a tainted jury pool. Judge Royal admitted in the October 28, 2003 change of venue order that the Court noticed in both newspapers (Macon Telegraph and Atlanta Constitution) coverage of the Defendant’s criminal case and articles reflected unfavorably on Dr. York’s organization could adversely impact the Defendant at trial.
In Brunswick, this was initially done on October 30, 2003 by Karen Sloan’s article in the Brunswick News two days after Judge Royal’s change of venue order dated October 28, 2003. Karen Sloan admitted in two transcribed telephone conversations that she received the information for the article from Sheriff Howard Richard Sills which contributed to the initial media saturation and negative pre-trial publicity in the Brunswick and Jacksonville, Florida media markets. The counties in the Southern District of Georgia used to taint the jury pool selection are predominately confederate settlers or Caucasians; therefore, this was not a jury of Malachi York’s peers (African, African American, or Yamassee Native American Moors). Finally, if the Nuwaupians/Sabaeans or if anyone tainted the jury pool, then the pool was tainted. Why select from this jury pool or have the trial in the Southern District of Georgia?
Sills and his deputies were seen in Brunswick on December 6, 2003 stalking and monitoring Malachi York’s family and Nuwaupian/Sabaean affiliate organizations scheduled to participate in the Brunswick Christmas Parade. Putman County is 270 miles away and 24 counties in between Glynn County. Judge Royal continues to incriminate himself with conflict of interest and judicial misconduct by admitting in the change of venue order that the Court, had professional experience in Brunswick, Southern District of Georgia. He practiced law, lived, and had associates in Brunswick which were exposed in the lawsuit 5:03-CV-422-2 (CAR) which should have resulted in his recusal. He continues with malicious prosecution, conflict of interest, and judicial misconduct of Malachi York and the Nuwaupian/Sabaean affiliated organizations by Staying The Case by order of the Court on December 29, 2003 and presiding over a hearing in January 2004 in Civil Action 5:03-CV-422-2 (CAR) while he is presiding over the criminal case of Malachi York! Additionally, Judge Royal and his associates from Brunswick listed in Civil Action 5:03-CV-422-2 (CAR) make false statements accusing the tribe and its organizational units of falsifying documents to participate in the Brunswick Christmas parade with possible felony charges. All this these allegations were proven to be false in Civil Action 5:03-CV-422-2 (CAR). Judge Royal was listed to testify against Civil Action 5:03-CV-422-2 (CAR) with the Solicitor General of Bibb County, State of Georgia. Judge Strawberry, Prosecutor for the State of Georgia admitted this was an unusual case and that he had never “prosecuted” anyone criminally for improperly filing a lawsuit that only omitted the words “pro se.” Another precedent set in the State of Georgia against Malachi York and Nuwaupians / Sabaeans. The filer of the complaint was illegally charged with a misdemeanor for unauthorized practice of law, court costs, 1 year probation, which resulted in his termination from employment and white-balled for over 3 years without gainful employment due to exposing Judge C. Ashley Royals’ conspiracy against Malachi York and his tribal family members.
Last, but not least, Dr. William S. Thompson, who was a personal physician of Dr. York, sent a letter seeking employment with Oconee Hospital and listed Dr. Malachi Z. York as one of his references. The lead Attorney for Oconee Hospital at the time was Charles Ashley Royal. Attorney Royal sent a reply back to Dr. Thompson declining him employment per his reference to and affiliation with Dr. York. Royal was bias and in collusion with an adversarial conflict of interest toward Dr. York and his tribe as far back as 1997. This was in 1997 before 2002, therefore, Attorney Royal knew Dr. York, his family (his father-in-law, wife and others) and its affiliated organizations. The authories and Judge Royal orchestrated this before May 8, 2002 A.D. as the record shows inconsistencies in his judicial conduct and prosecution of Malachi York and his tribal members. Judge Royal should have never touched the case or been re-assigned the Malachi York case or any case involving Nuwaupians/Sabaeans as shown by these numerous facts. There are other tribal family members with the similar conflict of interest by Judge C. Ashley Royal. Dr. Malachi York Is Innocent!
