Arizona Rancher Ordered to pay illegals $77,000 - Not $32 million

ARRA News Service - On Feb 9th,we posted about 16 illegals sue Arizona rancher for $32 Million. The initial trial is over and the illegals received only $77,804 of the $32 million they requested and Roger Barnett, 64, hopes that award will be thrown out in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Of course, one never know about the liberal 9th Circuit Court! Barnett legal team said, "It was 95% victory for us. What they really wanted were the first two civil rights claims because if they got those, they got attorney's fees. With nine attorneys working on the case, I'm sure their fees were $500,000 to $1 million." Barnett, has previously turned over to US Border Patrol 12,000 trespassing illegal aliens. Seems that the border patrol should reimburse Mr. Barnett, the $77, 804 and his legal fees for assisting them. Paying this cost is far cheaper than US Border Patrol total cost for locating, interdicting, and apprehending 12,000 illegal aliens. Thank you Mr. Roger Barnett!

Chelsea Schilling, WorldNetDaily, provides the update:
Sixteen illegal aliens who sued an Arizona rancher, claiming he violated their civil rights and falsely imprisoned them by holding them at gunpoint on his property along the border, have lost their case. According to the complaint, Barnett, who owns 22,000 acres along the border in southeastern Arizona, approached the group of illegals on an all-terrain vehicle March 7, 2004. He allegedly began yelling at them in English and broken Spanish while aiming his gun at the group. While Barnett's dog barked at the intruders, the illegal aliens accused him of ordering the dog to attack. One of the women said the rancher kicked her because she refused to get up. The jury ruled in favor of Barnett on the battery charge as well.

Barnett detained the trespassing illegals until Border Patrol agents arrived. The lawsuit claimed that the rancher never told the illegals they were trespassing and failed to post a sign notifying them that they were on private property. MALDEF claimed the family attacked, harassed, threatened and held the illegals against their will, because they were motivated by racial and class-based discrimination. The complaint said the Barnetts allegedly caused the group "severe emotional and mental distress," including fear, anxiety, humiliation, stress, frustration and sadness. Each illegal alien sued for $1 million in actual damages and $1 million for punitive or exemplary damages. . . .

The rancher was held liable for limited damages involving assault and emotional distress. Two illegal aliens were given $1,000 plus $10,000 in punitive damages each. Two more received $7,500, plus $20,000 in punitive damages each. . . . [T]he judge left out one part of instruction to the jury that should have been included, and it will be the basis of their appeal. "The law is skeptical of infliction of emotional distress because everybody gets their feelings hurt at times," he said. "So one of the requirements was that whatever is done must be so severe that the average person would be physically disabled by the distress – suffer a complete mental breakdown. The judge wouldn't put that in the instruction. That's straight Arizona law."

Also, two of the plaintiffs received $1,400, and two were awarded $1 each for assault. The term "assault" is legally applied when a person has simply put someone in fear of a harmful contact. According to the attorney, Barnett did carry a gun, but the judge did not include their self-defense argument in the instructions to the jury – another basis for appeal. All together, the illegals received only $77,804 of the $32 million they requested . . .

i think this judge should be removed from the bench. why in the world was this even in a court?? were these scumbags in the courtroom? if so, where was ICE. I think i"ll take a trip down to visit the rancher. i"ll stop at the gun store first. i will ask the rancher if he would like some help. the only difference is i wont wait for border agents. the way i see it if the US goverment cant or wont solve this problem the american people will. when more of these scumbags come across the border and see hundreds of brothers and sisters and cusions lying in the desert with buzzards picking the bones clean thay might think twice about crossing the border.dont think it can happen?? like i said if the goverment wont we will

I think this is a travesty. They let this gut deal with the problem to the tune of 12,000 imigrants and then want to charge him when he loses his cool and kicks a couple of them to sleep. How long does it take for someone to be frustrated to the point of violence. This guy is getting crapped on by illegals and his own governemtn. Geeze. This is such a bad omen for the rest of us.

I WOULD NOT PAY THEM A DIME..
NEXT TIME SHOOT THE ILLEGAL ALIENS, YOU DO NOT KNOW IF THE A DUG DEALERS WITH GUNS OR NOT. THE JUDGES SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES FOR LETTING IN A FOREIGN LAWSUIT. THESE PEOPLE HAVE NO RIGHTS AS A CITIZEN OF THE USA.
I AM BEHIND YOU MR. BARNETT. ONE DAY THE JUDGES AND POLITICIANS OF THIS COUNTRY WILL BE BEGGING FOR AN AMERICAN TO SAVE THEM FROM THE FOREIGN HANDS THAT THEY SERVE.
