Shingle Springs Finally Wins Permanent Injunction against Man Claiming to be “Chief”

Amazing story. Cribbing from another’s description of the case:

Just after news broke that Tribe’s Red Hawk Casino was about to open several years ago, Cesar Caballero began his campaign to usurp the Tribe’s established identity. There are many fascinating twist and turns to this story, including Mr. Caballero’s conviction for obstruction of mail after submitting a fraudulent change of address form to have the Tribe’s mail diverted to his address. Earlier in the case (a few years back) he filed unsuccessful counterclaims seeking relief for alleged violation of his trademarks and challenging the Tribe’s status. The court dismissed the counterclaims with prejudice.

Here are the materials:

220 – Third Amended Complaint

236.1 – MPA re Summary Judgment Motion

258 – Caballero Response to Summary Judgment Motion

259 – Order Granting Summary Judgment And Entering Permanent Injunction

  1. A few Lakota men need to be seeing this post, they are frauds posing as Lakota Chief’s & spiritual leaders, passing a faux International Treaty through council, few Tetuwan Lakota-Dakota-Nakota even knew about…
    Concerned Tetuwans writing to us complaining about this International Treaty say this faux Lakota Chief’s group is doing so to block Keystone & make money for themselves…
    It is the very same faux Lakota Chief’s selling Lakota ceremony around the world, & are the very ones behind this International Treaty, only thing is they need to have all the tribes vote on what they have already rammed through council for it to be legal.
    They do not represent all the Tetuwan people, nor do they speak for them.
