A federal judge says a Mexican drug cartel accused in the gruesome killings of nine women and children from an offshoot Mormon community must pay $1.5 billion to the families. The family members of the victims filed a lawsuit accusing the Juarez cartel of carrying out the November 2019 attack in Mexico. . . . .
The award determined by U.S. Magistrate Judge Clare Hochhalter in Bismarck will be automatically tripled under the federal Anti-Terrorism Act, increasing the amount to $4.6 billion.
Good luck collecting.....
Instead of sending $40 Billion to Ukraine, how about going after the drug cartels?
Different source though.
Many people will get big playoffs from Ukrainian “aid” and many people get big playoffs from the existing drug trade.
As always, follow the money.
So, will confiscated drug funds now go to satisfy this order rather than being kept by Gov. Org.?
Yah, I didn’t think so.
Ol Judge Clare has some cajones....
A very brave judge who just angered a Mexican drug cartel and the CIA.
it will allow the families to go after any bank accounts that can be identified as cartel funds where there is a treaty with the USA.
Anyone watch the netflix show El Chapo? The show implies that US officials only cared about stopping cartel on cartel violence and could care less if drugs entered the USA. Doesn’t make sense to me. Why should the US care about violence in Mexico?
