FAIRBANKS - An Alaska judge has rejected attempts by a militia leader to serve paperwork alleging the state courts lack jurisdiction and claiming that amounts to criminal activity.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that 26-year-old Schaeffer Cox appeared at the Fairbanks courthouse Wednesday for a scheduled hearing on a trial date for a weapons charge.
But Cox, head of the Alaska Peacemakers Militia, instead attempted to serve paperwork on District Court Judge Patrick Hammers.
Cox also told a state trooper after the hearing the militia has troopers outmanned and outgunned.
The judge set a Dec. 28 trial date but his clerks refused to accept documents from Cox, who is facing a misdemeanor weapons charge for not immediately letting a Fairbanks police officer know he was carrying a concealed weapon last March.
