Who is George Gordon?
George Gordon was the nation's foremost teacher of pro se courtroom strategy and procedure, a pioneer who taught himself the ins and outs of defending himself in court when Big Brother put him out of business. He was an author, lecturer, father and former corporate president. In 1979, he created Barristers Inn in Boise, Idaho to teach civil law and courtroom strategy and procedure. In 1985, he moved to Isabella, Missouri, and created George Gordons School of Law, which has been a leader in teaching individuals to successfully represent themselves in the civil court system.
Georges experience over the years included six cases of his that went to the U.S. Supreme Court and numerous others that went the distance in various state or federal courts. These have ranged from custody cases involving grandparents' rights, through Title 42 suits over civil rights violations by local or state authorities (one of which was even settled in gold), to cases on personal status. Some have even affected national courtroom procedure such as Gordon v. Idaho, 778 F2d 1397, in which the Federal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that an individual no longer has to take an oath or affirmation in court, if his reason for not taking it is based on the fact that the Bible (which they so kindly provide for you to swear on) says that you shouldn't swear oaths. If you add in the cases where students of his were parties to the action, the number goes into the hundreds, if not the thousands. Many questions as to an individuals status and his relationship with various governmental bodies have first been answered in cases involving George or his students.
In addition to teaching pro se litigation, George was also one of the nations few teachers of the Mosaic Law. In fact, he was one of the only people in the United States, if not the world, to practice this Law in its entirety. This adherence to a Law and its attendant moral code (which was not done away with, no matter what is being taught in the churches out there) made George a target of, yet virtually untouched by, both governmental and religious groups-something few people can claim. Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
George was a subsistence farmer using organic methods to practice land stewardship pursuant to the Scriptural land laws. He and his family lived peacefully in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri and did so without any Social Security Numbers, marriage licenses, business permits, insurance, inoculations, bank loans, credit cards, public school, government inspections, in fact, without any government intrusion into their lives. He observed the Mosaic Law and did not advocate, nor teach, anarchy, civil disobedience, or racism.
While he successfully used common law pleadings in both state and federal courts, he is not now, nor has he ever been, associated with the erroneous "common law courts" that have been springing up over the past few years, nor with such groups as the Montana Freemen or the "Republic of Texas." He was an individual and, as such, belonged to no groups. Also, contrary to what has been reported, he is not in hiding or in prison (in fact, he has never been in prison, particularly not over taxes; his only confrontation with the IRS resulted in a win).
In 2010, George, Dirk, and Jacqueline chose Scott Murray to continue the George Gordon School of Law upon Georges death, the Scriptural observances, and the organic subsistence methods on the farm in Isabella all of which Scott and Jacqueline have and are doing. A Scriptural investiture ceremony was held in 2012, prior to the deaths of George and Dirk, passing everything on to Scott. When you attend classes now, it is Scott Murray and Jacqueline Gordon Murray who will lay out your strategy and answer your questions. We're thankful that Scott had from 2010-2014 to spend learning from George, and Jacqueline had always planned the court strategies with George.
To those who had purchased schools and missed attending prior to Georges death, we will honor that commitment. You can still attend a scheduled school and have your questions answered.
