Apportionment of the U.S. House – Elected Representative Plaintiffs Needed for Washington D.C. US District Court Case# 1:17-cv-00793
We seek Elected Representative plaintiffs* to hold a conference call with the attorneys involved in the case. Contact us (details below) if you have interest in knowing more.
- This is an ongoing Lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in District of Columbia.
- The Original Amendment, if properly ratified, holds that each U.S. House member should represent no more than 50,000 people (view below).
- The effect would be to increase the size of the U.S. House and give the common citizens of America reasonable access to their congressional representatives.
- A 3 Judge Trial Court has been formed to consider whether Article I of the Bill of Rights dealing with the apportionment of the U.S. House was properly passed. This type of case is deemed so important it requires 3 judges and any appeal goes straight to the U.S. Supreme Court.
At this time, each U.S. House member on average has between about 725,000 and 750,000 people each and in lieu of adding representatives as the population grows, each representative merely adds more staff members. We as citizens have less and less access to our representatives.
The Constitution for the United States of America was written in the Constitutional Convention of 1787 and was then sent to the 13 Several States for ratification.
The so called “Federalists” were pushing the quick ratification of the Constitution.
The so called “Anti-Federalists” were upset with the proposed U.S. Constitution and felt that it gave the central government too much power. The Anti-Federalists also argued the Constitution needed a “Bill of Rights”.
Some States passed the U.S. Constitution, but others balked and it appears in order to stop the Constitution from being derailed, members of the convention drafted a Bill of Rights out of the hundreds of ideas from people of the founding time.
Congress grouped these ideas into 12 Amendments labeled as Articles.
These were then sent to the States for ratification.
It appears that all but the first two Articles were ratified by the 13 States. The other 10 Amendments went on to become the U.S. Bill of Rights.
Article the second was later ratified in 1994 as the 27th Amendment.
Article the first, claimed not ratified, was designed to make it so that no member of the U.S. House of Representatives would have more than 50,000 people in their districts.
This supposedly un-ratified Article reads:
Article the first . . . After the first enumeration required by the first article of the Constitution, there shall be one Representative for every thirty thousand, until the number shall amount to one hundred, after which the proportion shall be so regulated by Congress, that there shall be not less than one hundred Representatives, nor less than one Representative for every forty thousand persons, until the number of Representatives shall amount to two hundred; after which the proportion shall be so regulated by Congress, that there shall not be less than two hundred Representatives, nor more than one Representative for every fifty thousand persons.
Plaintiff LaVergne, both a Lawyer and Constitutional Scholar, believes the official historical record wrongly shows that the Amendment was never ratified. He has collected up all the records from the original 13 states and says it was in fact ratified. He has brought this case forward to correct this major oversight. He and 3 other plaintiffs are currently arguing this case before a 3 Judge panel.
LaVergne seeks State Legislators from these Original 13 States (and others) to take a position with him; to take a stands on this and push for this article to be enacted.
We have attorneys who can represent all plaintiffs willing to join. This is the most important issue that must be dealt with now is that Our future as Americans and our Liberties are tied to this very issue.
If representation is not increased, the Courts and the Executive Branch will expand their power until there is no liberty left!
