10. According to CVC §265 & §295 Words & Phrases, the commissioner is the Commissioner of the CHP, and the director is the Director of the

DMV: §265.  The "commissioner" is the Commissioner of the California Highway Patrol.

 

§295.  The "director" is the Director of Motor Vehicles.

§1650.  The director shall administer and enforce the provisions of this code relating to the department.

 

§2400(b) the commissioner shall enforce all laws regulating the operation of vehicles and the use of the highways

 

12. According to CGC §§ 11400, 11410.20 & 11410.50, The executive branch departments within the California Business, Transportation &

Housing agency, hereafter collectively, "Agency," which are not expressly exempted nor are there statutes relating to the proceedings that provide otherwise, must abide by the Administrative Procedures Act, "APA":

 

§11400.  (a) This chapter and Chapter 5 (commencing with Section

11500) constitute the administrative adjudication provisions of the

Administrative Procedure Act.

 

§11410.20.  Except as otherwise expressly provided by statute:

    (a) This chapter applies to all agencies of the state.

 

§11410.50.  This chapter applies to an adjudicative proceeding required to be conducted under Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 11500) unless the statutes relating to the proceeding provide otherwise.   (Emphasis added.)

 

13. According to CGC § 11425.10(a)(1 & 2), the Agency is required to give notice of any Agency actions and is required to send a copy of the procedure governing the action:

§11425.10.  (a) The governing procedure by which an agency conducts  an adjudicative proceeding is subject to all of the following requirements:

   (1) The agency shall give the person to which the agency action is directed notice and an opportunity to be heard, including the opportunity to present and rebut evidence.

§11523.  Judicial review may be had by filing a petition for a writ of mandate in accordance with the provisions of the Code of Civil

Procedure, subject, however, to the statutes relating to the particular agency.

 

D. Argument

17. It is contrary to the principle of separation of powers and a breach of due process for this judicial branch court to usurp the executive branch administrative authority, duty & jurisdiction held by the DMV, 18. The UTC issued to Defendant was undertaken within the purview of the original authority and jurisdiction of the executive branch DMV, not this judicial branch court.  See CVC §1650 & §2400(b), CGC §§ 11425.10(a) (1 & 2), §11503 & §11502(a), supra.

19. Defendant's unconditional right to travel is challenged by the issuance of a UTC claiming violations of restrictive CVC conditions.  See CGC § 11503 & 11410.10, supra.

20. The Agency, not a judicial branch court, is required to initiate an administrative Agency hearing and send notice of action and a copy of the governing procedure to Defendant.  See CGC § 11503 and §11425.10(a) (1 & 2), supra.

21. According to CGC §11410, §11410.20, §11410.50, § 11425.10(a)(1 &

2), §11503, §11502(a), & §11523, supra, this judicial court has no jurisdiction to lawfully hear an administrative matter until administrative due process procedures have been exhausted.

22. This judicial court can only review the facts and conclusions of law found in the executive Agency's administrative final determination or order, and only after the Agency (or Defendant) petitions for a writ of mandate for judicial review.  See CGC §11523, supra.

23. The Agency with original jurisdiction has not filed a petition for a writ of mandate for judicial review with this judicial court in accordance with CGC §11523.  Therefore, this court has no jurisdiction to hear this matter. E. Conclusion

24. The original jurisdiction Agency has not presented a petition to this court, for a writ of mandate for this court to judicially review the administrative courts final determination or order, which would give subject matter jurisdiction to this judicial court. See CGC §11523. 25. The original jurisdiction Agency, as shown by CVC §1650 & §2400(b), & CGC § 11502(a), supra, has not invoked the subject matter jurisdiction of this judicial court.  See CGC §11523, supra.

26. This judicial branch court has no lawful authority to impose its opinion, where no original jurisdiction administrative agency petition stands in compliance with the APA requesting it to do so.

27. No judicial determination has properly been requested. The law requires that jurisdiction be properly invoked. Without jurisdiction, this court cannot consider this matter. This case should be dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.

 

F. Prayer

28. Because this court has no subject matter jurisdiction to consider

Case No.: T4600292-7, Defendant asks the court to grant Defendant an Order  Of Dismissal For Lack Of Subject Matter Jurisdiction for said case.

SKATEBOARD BRIEF

SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA

COUNTY OF FRESNO

 

 

People of California                 Motion for Dismissal

             vs.

xxxxxxxxxx, sur juris          Court Room _______

                                                Date ____/____/2004

 

The people of the state have not filed a certified Final Administrative

 

Determination.  The people of California have failed to make a claim, that

 

this court can hear, as per the Administrative Procedures Act.

 

There is no “Agency Final Administrative Determination” in the record. 

 

This Court has nothing to review.

 

The State has not exhausted its Administrative remedies.  Therefore the

 

“Court” lacks Subject Matter Jurisdiction.

 

To move this Court forward without exhausting Administrative remedies

 

will be Depriving the accused “Due Process of Law”, a violation of

 

Constitutional Law.

 

Here are a few Supreme Court cases which back my position:

 

“Where rights are secured by the Constitution are involved there can be

no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them.”  Miranda v.

Arizona 384 U.S.,

 

“The claim and exercise of a constitutional right cannot be converted into a crime.” Miller v. U. S., 230 F 2d 486, 489

 

“There can be no sanction or penalty imposed upon one because of his exercise of Constitutional Rights” Sherar v. Cullen, 481 F. 945.

No state shall convert a liberty into a privilege, license it, and attach a fee to it.” MURDOCK v. PENN, 319 U.S., 105.

 

“If the state converts a liberty into a privilege, the citizen can engage in the right with impunity.” SHULLESWORTH v. BIRMINGHAM, 373 U.S., 262.

 

“If you’ve relied on prior decisions of the Supreme Court you have a perfect defense for willfulness.”  U. S. v. BISHOP, 412 U.S., 346.

 

“Officers of the court have no immunity, when violating a constitutional right, from liability, for they are deemed to know the law.” Owen v. Independence, 100 S. CT 1398.

 

“The court is to protect against any encroachment of constitutionally secured liberty.” Boyd v. U. S., 116 U.S. 616.

 

“An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation as inoperative as though it had never been passed.”  Norton v. Shelby County, 118 U.S. 425

 

“Proceedings in a court are legally void where there is an absence of jurisdiction.”  Scott v. McNeal, 154 U.S. 34; RE Bonner, 151 U.S. 242

 

“The exercise of a Constitutional Right cannot be the basis of a crime.”  Marchetti v. U. S. 390 U.S.

 

The Fifth Amendment mandates that all judicial proceedings must proceed by due process.

 

Since all judges take an oath of office to uphold the Constitution and the Supreme Court has additionally held that government employees who

 

violate a law in the performance of duties do not represent the government, should we conclude that adjudication?  Sure it does.  This is the only

 

guarantee that a court of admiralty, a star chamber proceeding, a kangaroo court, or an arbitrary proceeding by whatever name does not occur. 

 

“That court proceedings must be within Constitutional provisions has been forcefully established by the Supreme Court.”  Muskrat v. United States, 219 U.S. 346; Smith v. U. S., 360 U. S. 1.

 

ANY action involving a citation or ticket issued, confiscation, impoundment, or search and seizure of my private property by a police officer or ANY

 

other public servant employee which carries a fine or jail time is a penalty or sanction, thus converting a right into a crime.

 

Any ticket or citation is thus NULL and VOID.  Under every circumstance without exception, government officials must hold the Constitution for

 

The United States of America (1791) and the California Constitution (1849) supreme over ANY other laws, regulations, or orders.  Every police

 

(executive officer) or judicial officer has sworn an oath to protect and lives, property, AND RIGHTS of the Citizens of the united states of America

 

under the supreme law of the land.  ANY act to deprive state Citizens of their constitutionally protected rights is a direct violation of their oath of

 

office, a felony and a federal crime.
