Sedfrey Linsangan is suing the United States of America for violating the constitutional rights of the people of Guam.
Linsangan, who has brought several complaints before the District Court of Guam, filed the lawsuit against the United States on Nov. 6, 2019. He says that the federal government is violating the Bill of Rights and constitutional rights of the people of Guam contained in the Organic Act of Guam.
He lists four points in the complaint related to the Farm Bill ban on cockfighting, the right to vote in U.S. Congress, a seat on the U.S. Senate, and the enforcement of the 15th amendment as it pertains to voter’s rights.
He is calling for legislation that will provide a $50 incentive to those that vote and penalize those who do not have a “valid excuse or extenuating circumstance ” preventing them from voting.
He seeks judgment by the court declaring the ban on cockfighting to be null and void, as well as declaring that the US Congress must fix or pass legislation to cure his complaint.
