I.     Background

A. Underlying Federal Action (Makere v Allstate)

1. On August 12, 2020, Appellant sued Allstate Insurance Company for employment discrimination (3:20-cv-00905; USFLMD). The action was/is on the bases of race/sex/color/retaliation; and brought under many state & federal statutes. His case evidenced disparate/discriminatory/hostile treatment that included – but was not limited to:

a. unwanted date requests; racist dolls; racist characterizations;

b. sabotaged work;

c. disparate pay; denied work-from-home privileges;

d. forcing Appellant to pay for a $1,025 actuarial exam fee while never doing the same to other employees; and

e. much more.

2. The case continues to this day; albeit hampered by unconstitutional (and illegal) conduct of state actors.

B. Preceding Federal Action (Makere v Early)

3. On February 16, 2021, Appellant sued Edward Gary Early (a state hearing officer) for constitutional deprivations (4:21-cv-00096; USFLND). The action was brought under federal law. It – like the underlying lawsuit which Mr. Early impeded (ie, ¶1, supra) – continues to this day; albeit hampered by unconstitutional conduct of the above-charged public officials.1/

C. Immediate Federal Action (Makere v Fitzpatrick, et al)

4. On April 26, 2022, Appellant sued the above-captioned Defendants for constitutional violations.2/ Therein, Appellant levied one Bivens count against each of the following federal appellees: Martin Fitzpatrick (1); Mark Walker (1); USFLND (1); Michael Frank (1); Allen Winsor (1); and Hope Cannon (1). Appellant also filed two counts against Charles Schreiber (2); doing so under 42 USC §1983 (‘Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871’) and 42 USC §1985.

a. Crucially, Appellant’s charges against the federal appellees centered around the LT’s unconstitutional local rule (ie, Local Rule 5.4(A)(3) USFLND).

5. On-or-around November 21, 2022, the LT dismissed Appellant’s case. It also retained jurisdiction; threatening further Court action.

6. On January 30, 2023, the LT docketed two documents that it attributed to Appellant. The first was supposedly a Case Management Report (“CMR”), while the second was supposedly a Certificate of Interested Persons (“CIP”).

a. Two papers, importantly, that Appellant had mailed 114 days earlier (on October 4, 2022). A near-four month delay which further evidenced the unconstitutionality of the LT’s local rule.

7. Nevertheless, the Court’s self-produced delay sparked its subsequent actions. Because ten (10) days later – on February 9, 2023 – the LT’s magistrate recommended sanctions. Soon thereafter, the LT adopted his suggestion (see appealed order).

II. Pertinent Charges

8. Ultimately, the federal appellees entered into a pre-suit pact to deprive Appellant of Appellant’s constitutional rights [C088]. Their plan was pockmarked by invidious discrimination on the bases of race & sex. A covenant that they partially effectuated through their unconstitutional local rules.

9. Among other things, those federal appellees committed the following acts:

a. lying [C058] [C082];
b. ratifying lies [C062];
c. altering the federal docket [C058d];
d. entering orders without authority [C058] [C062];
e. shunning their duties to disqualify themselves [C058];
f. drafting unconstitutional local rules [C058] [C062] [C078]; and
g. enforcing unconstitutional local rules [C058] [C062] [C078]

Doing so, importantly, “under the guise of federal authority” in order to “deprive [Appellant] of [Appellant]’s constitutional rights”.

10. Briefly put, Appellant charged Appellees with violating the US Constitution while engaging in non-judicial acts (ie, records mutilation; legislative rulemaking). The LT punished Appellant for filing suit; and this appeal commenced.

III.   Application to the Matters for Judicial Notice

11. Page 4 of the magistrate’s recommended order Appellant’s lawsuit had no reasonable factual basis:
“...far-fetched government conspiracy that had no reasonable factual basis” - Magistrate’s R&R, 4:22-cv-00315, (2/9/23)

12. This is false.

13. The discriminatory/unconstitutional nature of Local Rule 5.4 is clear. In fact, Appellant outlined its illegitimacy in his complaint (highlights added):
“63. As specified before (¶58), USFLND discriminates against different classes of litigants. Local Rule 5.4(A)(3) states that pro se parties must send hard copies of their court papers. That same rule, though, alleviates represented parties from this hardship.”

64. Not only does the disparity affect time & money, it also affects the efficacy of litigation.

a. Pro se litigants lose multiple days due to the transit times (mailing documents to & from USFLND). Days which they could use for research, evidence collection, writing, and self-representation. 65. Moreover, there is no legitimate reason for the disparity. Neither USFLND’s rules nor USFLND’s website state a compelling government interest in the discrimination.”
- [C064]-[C065]

14. Importantly, Appellant performed an in-depth analysis of the discriminatory ventures of the federal appellees. In fact, he placed the results of that analysis' results in a short & plain statement within his complaint (highlights added):
“67. Importantly, the pro se distinction is just a cover for targeting black people (especially black men who litigate civil rights cases).”

a. Records show that pro se litigants are disproportionately black. Records also show that civil rights litigants are disproportionately black.
i. To be precise, statistics show that 84% of Florida’s pro se civil rights litigants are black. This value is dramatically high, because government census shows that only 17% of Floridians are black.”
- Complaint, ¶67; 4:22-cv-00315

15. The aforementioned in-depth analysis took Appellant a significant amount of time to perform.

a. April 19, 2022 marked the first day of Appellant’s analysis into Defendants’ discriminatory local rule. Over the next five days, he spent a total of 55.75 hours analyzing demographics & pro se status (in civil rights disputes).

b. He completed his six-day effort on April 24, 2022. Two days later (ie, 4/26/22) he filed his lawsuit (¶4 supra).

16. In fact, Appellant presented these results (of the LT’s discrimination) directly to the LT (highlights added):
“b. USFLND has always known that its rule would have (and has had) a disparate impact on black people.

i. On June 10, 2022, Plaintiff asked Defendants (via email) whether they disputed these statistics. Defendants laid silent.
ii. The following month - on July 13, 2022 – asked again. Defendants – again – did not dispute the facts/statistics related to its discriminatory rule.”
- Complaint, ¶67; 4:22-cv-00315

17. Plus, Appellant published this analysis (and underlying data) on his website. A process that took him 392.50 hours to complete.

a. The first piece was the demographics analysis.

i. Which – between 5/16/22 and 5/29/22 – took Appellant 214.50 hours to finish. It can be found here:


b. The second half was the pro se status analysis.

i. Which – between 5/30/22 and 6/12/22 – took plaintiff 178.00 hours to finish. It can be found here:


18. Put simply, evidence of Appellee’s unconstitutional discrimination has a deep basis in fact.

19. This factual basis is important because it refutes the LT’s contention for punishment (¶11, supra). For a long time now, courts have held that sanctions are inapplicable when a factual basis [for a complaint] exists (highlights added):

“[Appellant] also argues that Rule 11 sanctions were not appropriate because [Appellee] failed to provide the district court with evidence that [Appellant]'s case or pleadings (1) had no reasonable factual basis... ...We therefore VACATE the order imposing sanctions and REMAND to the district court for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.” - Massengale v Ray, 267 F.3d 1298 (11th Cir. 2001)

20. Thus, since the LT’s order (which is the subject of this appeal) is based on a materially false statement this Court will benefit from seeing the truth.

21. This truth can be found in the attachments. Each one showing the racial characteristic of actual civil rights litigants. Thereby proving:

a. that Appellant put forth substantial effort to research the factual basis of his complaint; and

b. Appellant’s allegation that the LT’s Local Rule discriminates against black people.

IV.    Nature of Relief Sought

22. Appellant hereby asks this Honorable Court to judicially notice the one-thousand and sixty-five attached public records (Attachments 0001-1065) only to the following extent:

a. It is a fact that these records existed prior to April 29, 2022 (ie, prior to the lawsuit below).

b. It is a fact that Appellant procured these records prior to April 29, 2022 (ie, prior to filing suit).

c. It is a fact that 82% of these litigants have been identified as being black.

d. It is a fact that Appellant tabulated these statistics prior to April 29, 2022 (ie, prior to filing suit).

e. It is a fact that these racial disparities are probative of Local Rule 5.4’s discriminatory impact on black people.

V.    Argument in Support of Taking Judicial Notice

23. Rule 201(b) Fed. R. Evid. bestows this Court with the power to take judicial notice of “a fact that is not subject to reasonable dispute”.

a. Here, in the instant case, no one can reasonably dispute the proffered items. Primarily because they are all public record.

24. In Horne v. Potter, 392 F. App’x 800 (11th Cir. 2010), this Court stated that courts can take judicial notice of items that are public record (highlights added):
“The district court properly took judicial notice of the documents in [the plaintiff’s] first case, which were public records that were "not subject to reasonable dispute" because they were "capable of accurate and ready determination by resort to sources whose accuracy could not reasonably be questioned."” - Horne v Potter, 392 F. App'x 800 (11th Cir. 2014)

25. Plus, the US Supreme Court ruled that a court can take limited/pertinent judicial notice:
“Accordingly, a court may take notice of another court's order only for the limited purpose of recognizing the "judicial act" that the order represents or the subject matter of the litigation.”” - United States v Jones, 29 F.3d 1549 (11th Cir. 1994)

26. In short, these appellate decisions fit Appellant’s motion perfectly. As he is only asking for this Court to take recognition of material that is public record.


On April 26, 2023, Appellant presented this analysis to Appellees; thereby asking if they had any opposition to this motion.

Appellee Schreiber replied that he did. When asked whether he disputed the statistics/facts, Appellee Schreiber replied that he had nothing more to say. The federal appellees offered a similarly brief note of opposition.

Thus, Appellant believes the foregoing presents a compelling (ie, pertinent public record) and important (ie, support the main issue-on-appeal) reason for obtaining the requested relief.


WHEREFORE, Appellant respectfully asks this Honorable Court to take judicial notice of the one-thousand and sixty-five (1,065) items of public record (attached hereto).

Dated this 26th day of April 2023.
