ORDER DISMISSING COMPLAINT

ORDER DISMISSING COMPLAINT

I. INTRODUCTION

On November 18, 2011, Plaintiff Alfred Napahuelua Spinney, as

“Kanaka-Hawaiian subject and Prime Minister for the government of the Kingdom

of the Hawaiian Islands,” (“Plaintiff”) filed a “Petition Under 28 U.S.C. § 2241 for

a Petition of Writ of Habeas Corpus” seeking the release of three minor children

from the State of Hawaii, Catholic Charities Hawaii, and various individuals

(“Defendants”). Plaintiff asserts that these three minors were unlawfully removed

under the pretense that they needed protection from their father, David Kaawa IV.

Plaintiff asserts that Defendants are “engaging in a conspiracy to alienate the []

Case 1:11-cv-00702-JMS-RLP Document 4 Filed 11/28/11 Page 1 of 8 PageID #: 19

2

children from their father, their family, the country of their birth, their culture and

their ethnicity,” which constitutes “GENOCIDE against the Hawaiian people

. . . .”

Although titled as a Writ of Habeas Corpus, neither Plaintiff nor any

of the minor children he seeks release of are “in custody” such that 28 U.S.C.

§ 2241 does not apply. See Cucalon v. Rice, 317 Fed. Appx. 602, 603 (9th Cir.

2008) (“We lack habeas corpus jurisdiction because [the mother] and her children

are not ‘in custody’ as required by 28 U.S.C. § 2241.”). In any event, upon sua

sponte review, the court DISMISSES the Complaint without leave to amend.

II. STANDARD OF REVIEW

Because Plaintiff is proceeding pro se, the court liberally construes his

pleadings. See Eldridge v. Block, 832 F.2d 1132, 1137 (9th Cir. 1987) (“The

Supreme Court has instructed the federal courts to liberally construe the ‘inartful

pleading’ of pro se litigants.”) (citing Boag v. MacDougall, 454 U.S. 364, 365

(1982) (per curiam)). The court also recognizes that “[u]nless it is absolutely clear

that no amendment can cure the defect . . . a pro se litigant is entitled to notice of

the complaint’s deficiencies and an opportunity to amend prior to dismissal of the

action.” Lucas v. Dep’t of Corr., 66 F.3d 245, 248 (9th Cir. 1995).

Case 1:11-cv-00702-JMS-RLP Document 4 Filed 11/28/11 Page 2 of 8 PageID #: 20

Nevertheless, the court may dismiss a complaint pursuant to Federal

Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6) on its own motion. See Omar v. Sea-Land Serv.,

Inc., 813 F.2d 986, 991 (9th Cir. 1987) (“A trial court may dismiss a claim sua

sponte under [Rule] 12(b)(6). Such a dismissal may be made without notice where

the claimant cannot possibly win relief.”); Ricotta v. California, 4 F. Supp. 2d 961,

968 n.7 (S.D. Cal. 1998) (“The Court can dismiss a claim sua sponte for a

Defendant who has not filed a motion to dismiss under Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(6).”).

Additionally, a complaint that is “obviously frivolous” does not confer federal

subject matter jurisdiction and may be dismissed sua sponte. Franklin v. Murphy,

745 F.2d 1221, 1227 n.6 (9th Cir. 1984); see also Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(h)(3); Grupo

Dataflux v. Atlas Global Grp., L.P., 541 U.S. 567, 593 (2004) (“[I]t is the

obligation of both district court and counsel to be alert to jurisdictional

requirements.”).

“To survive a motion to dismiss [pursuant to Rule 12(b)(6)], a

complaint must contain sufficient factual matter, accepted as true, to ‘state a claim

to relief that is plausible on its face.’” Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 129 S. Ct. 1937, 1949

(2009) (quoting Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly, 550 U.S. 544, 570 (2007)); see

also Weber v. Dep’t of Veterans Affairs, 521 F.3d 1061, 1065 (9th Cir. 2008). This

tenet -- that the court must accept as true all of the allegations contained in the

Case 1:11-cv-00702-JMS-RLP Document 4 Filed 11/28/11 Page 3 of 8 PageID #: 21

4

complaint -- “is inapplicable to legal conclusions.” Iqbal, 129 S. Ct. at 1949.

Accordingly, “[t]hreadbare recitals of the elements of a cause of action, supported

by mere conclusory statements, do not suffice.” Id. (citing Twombly, 550 U.S. at

555). Rather, “[a] claim has facial plausibility when the plaintiff pleads factual

content that allows the court to draw the reasonable inference that the defendant is

liable for the misconduct alleged.” Id. at 1949 (citing Twombly, 550 U.S. at 556).

Factual allegations that only permit the court to infer “the mere possibility of

misconduct” do not show that the pleader is entitled to relief as required by Rule 8.

Id. at 1950.

The court may also dismiss a complaint sua sponte for failure to

comply with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 8. Rule 8 mandates that a complaint

include a “short and plain statement of the claim,” Fed. R. Civ. P. 8(a)(2), and that

“each allegation must be simple, concise, and direct.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 8(d)(1). A

complaint that is so confusing that its “‘true substance, if any, is well disguised’”

does not satisfy Rule 8. Hearns v. San Bernardino Police Dep’t, 530 F.3d 1124,

1131 (9th Cir. 2008) (quoting Gillibeau v. City of Richmond, 417 F.2d 426, 431

(9th Cir. 1969)); see also McHenry v. Renne, 84 F.3d 1172, 1180 (9th Cir. 1996)

(“Something labeled a complaint but written . . . prolix in evidentiary detail, yet

Case 1:11-cv-00702-JMS-RLP Document 4 Filed 11/28/11 Page 4 of 8 PageID #: 22

5

without simplicity, conciseness and clarity as to whom plaintiffs are suing for what

wrongs, fails to perform the essential functions of a complaint.”).

Put differently, a district court may dismiss a complaint for failure to

comply with Rule 8 where the complaint fails to provide defendants with fair

notice of the wrongs they have allegedly committed. See McHenry, 84 F.3d at

1178-80 (affirming dismissal of complaint where “one cannot determine from the

complaint who is being sued, for what relief, and on what theory, with enough

detail to guide discovery”); cf. Mendiondo v. Centinela Hosp. Med. Ctr., 521 F.3d

1097, 1105 n.4 (9th Cir. 2008) (finding dismissal under Rule 8 was in error where

“the complaint provide[d] fair notice of the wrongs allegedly committed by

defendants and [did] not qualify as overly verbose, confusing, or rambling”). Rule

8 requires more than “the-defendant-unlawfully-harmed-me accusation[s]” and “[a]

pleading that offers labels and conclusions or a formulaic recitation of the elements

of a cause of action will not do.” Iqbal, 129 S. Ct. at 1949 (citations and

quotations omitted). “The propriety of dismissal for failure to comply with Rule 8

does not depend on whether the complaint is wholly without merit.” McHenry, 84

F.3d at 1179.

III. DISCUSSION

Plaintiff, as Prime Minister of the “Kingdom of Hawaii,” seeks release

of three minor children that were apparently taken from the custody of their father

and are allegedly being detained unlawfully by Defendants. Plaintiff asserts that

these children are citizens of the Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands, and that their

removal constitutes genocide as defined by 18 U.S.C. § 1091(6).

First, the court rejects out of hand Plaintiff’s assertions suggesting that

the “Kingdom of Hawaii” is a separate legal entity from the United State, and that

the State of Hawaii commits “genocide” by taking children into protective services.

There is no legally cognizable Kingdom of Hawaii; the State of Hawaii is a part of

the United States; and Hawaii state custody of children is not “genocide.”

Second, this court appears to lack jurisdiction over the Complaint --

both Plaintiff and Defendants appear to be citizens of the State of Hawaii and no

federal question appears to be presented.

Third, even if Plaintiff presents a Constitutional claim, it fails. After

stripping away the nonsensical allegations from the Complaint, the court is left

with the basic allegations that Defendants took three minor children into custody in

violation of David Kaawa IV’s parental rights. Although Plaintiff did not provide

any details regarding precisely how David Kaawa IV’s parental rights were

Case 1:11-cv-00702-JMS-RLP Document 4 Filed 11/28/11 Page 6 of 8 PageID #: 24

7

allegedly violated (or why Plaintiff has standing to object to any violation of

Kaawa’s rights), the court does not have subject matter jurisdiction over such

issues -- the court may not issue child custody decrees, see Ankenbrandt v.

Richards, 504 U.S. 689, 703 (1992) (holding that the domestic relations exception

to federal subject matter jurisdiction “divests the federal courts of power to issue

divorce, alimony and child custody decrees”); nor may it may review state court

child custody proceedings. See Hanson v. Firmat, 272 Fed. Appx. 571, 572 (9th

Cir. 2008) (affirming dismissal of claims asserting due process violations in child

custody proceedings due to lack of subject matter jurisdiction based on the Rooker-

Feldman doctrine); Watkins v. Proulx, 235 Fed. Appx. 678, 679 (9th Cir. 2007)

(“The district court properly concluded that it lacked subject matter jurisdiction

pursuant to the Rooker-Feldman doctrine because Watkins’ action amounted to a

de facto appeal of a state court child custody order.” (citing Exxon Mobil Corp. v.

Saudi Basic Indus. Corp., 544 U.S. 280, 284 (2005) (Rooker-Feldman bars

“state-court losers complaining of injuries caused by state-court judgments

rendered before the district court proceedings commenced” from asking district

courts to review and reject those judgments.)).

The court therefore DISMISSES Plaintiff’s Complaint. Because any

amendment would be futile, this dismissal is without leave to amend.

IV. CONCLUSION

For the reasons stated above, the court DISMISSES the Complaint.

The Clerk of Court is directed to close the case file.

IT IS SO ORDERED.

DATED: Honolulu, Hawaii, November 28, 2011.
