Rev. Pinkney v. NAACP Press Release Announcing Victory at April 11 Hearing



Rev. Edward Pinkney reports victory in the April 11, 2012 court hearing regarding his lawsuit against the NAACP. The NAACP planned to hold a special election in April and replace Rev. Pinkney as the president of the NAACP chapter in Benton Harbor, Michigan. The NAACP challenged the Detroit court's jurisdiction over the case. Ms. White hoped for a dismissal. Instead, Pinkney v. NAACP will have another hearing in May and the NAACP is disallowed having any election in Pinkney's chapter during the interim. Rev. Pinkeny spoke about the hearing during his Blogtalk Radio broadcast on Sunday, April 15, 2012 at this link http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rev-pinkney/2012/04/15/pinkney-to-pinkney . We join Rev. Pinkney every Sunday at 5pm EST. Your input is also invited regarding social and economic justice issues in the USA where the emphasis is on unity among people of all races and socioeconomic classes to address problems caused by corporate greed and government misdeeds. See a press release below issued by B.H. BANCO Organization, which Rev. Pinkney directs.

PRESS RELEASE

Rev. Edward Pinkney, Benton Harbor, filed a $100,000 lawsuit against the state and national NAACP and its leaders for attempting to oust him as president of the Twin Cities NAACP branch contrary to organization bylaws.

Atty. Elliot Hall represented Pinkney on Wed. Aprill 11, 10am  
Location: Courthouse at 2 Woodward Ave., Detroit 
Wayne County Circuit Judge Brian Sullivan presiding

Pinkney asked Sullivan to halt the April 14, 2012 election in Benton Harbor, organized by the state NAACP.  Pinkney called it an attempt at a hostile takeover.

Whirlpool Corporation employee Marcus Robinson, long-time political opponent of Pinkney, told the Detroit Free Press that Pinkney obstructs efforts to revitalize Benton Harbor;  in actuality, Pinkney is fighting for Benton Harbor's self-determination, the rights of citizens to retain control over their land, and much more.

Atty. Hall said Pinkney tried to resolve the dispute over the state imposed election internally, but was ignored by the state and national organizations.

Pinkney and Hall agreed, in the judge's office, to delay the election until after a May 10 hearing before Sullivan.  The state NAACP was forced to agree, having no legal stand otherwise.

"The state and national NAACP have met their match in the Twin Cities' branch. We're not going down without a fight," said Pinkney.

For more than a decade Pinkney has been battling racial injustice, police brutality, and corporate influence in Benton Harbor.  Honest reporting on this part of Michigan is needed (understatement).
