Charles E. Butler, Judge
Bernard Simmons was sentenced by the Court to a term of years
in prison, following which he will be released to a detainer
lodged by the State of Iowa where it is presumed he will
serve another term of years. The Delaware sentencing occurred
in September of 2017, and it appears that he will be in
Delaware prisons until about 2024 before he is sent off to
February of 2018, Mr. Simmons filed a handwritten Petition
for a Writ of Habeas Corpus. In his Petition, Mr. Simmons
argued that the Court "did not have in rem or quasi in
rem jurisdiction over Trust res, nor personal jurisdiction
over subject matter jurisdiction over Foreign Trust." A
cursory examination of the criminal docket revealed that,
whatever else he was arguing about, Mr. Simmons was properly
and lawfully detained in a Delaware prison and the Habeas
Petition was promptly dismissed.
in June of 2018, Mr. Simmons filed a document titled
"Petition for the Redress of Grievances in the Nature of
a Private International Administrative Remedy." It is
addressed to the Superior Court of Delaware, specifically to
the attention of President Judge Jurden.
document filed is a string of words and phrases with catchy
legal i connotations-such as "proof of claim" and
"conditional acceptance for value"- but it is
otherwise gibberish. There is no pleading standard with which
the Court is familiar that would require the Court to spend a
day or two ruminating over whatever it is this
"Petition" might be getting at. But because it was
accepted by the Clerk and docketed under the same case number
as the Habeas Petition, it is now on the Court's internal
docketing clock and requires a ruling.
Petition is summarily DISMISSED.
IS SO ORDERED.
