Air Force Major Clarence Anderson III has filed another lawsuit against the Secretary of the Air Force, and other senior officials for his wrongful conviction in 2015. Amazingly, Maj. Anderson has yet to receive a DD-214 from the military for his tenure as an officer. It’s one of the ways they harass people they don’t like.
Major Anderson previously filed a similar suit in the 4th Federal District Court but that suit was dismissed because Air Force officials disingenuously convinced the court that Anderson never introduced evidence during his military appeals, which disclosed a recorded phone call between his wife’s lover and his mother, where the lover admitted to being paid $100,000 by his wife’s mother to lie about his relationship with Anderson’s wife.
Major Anderson filed several reconsideration motions in the 4th Federal Court to Federal Judge Anthony Trenga, proving he submitted this evidence a total of six times during his military appeals, but Judge Trenga refused to reverse this blatant error of the facts.
When Anderson filed the appeal to reverse Judge Trenga’s blatant error, the Court of Appeals ruled Anderson busted his suspense to file his intent to appeal, never ruling on the merits of Anderson’s case.
In 2022, US Congressman Barry Moore (R-AL), petitioned President Biden to have the Department of Justice investigate the Air Force for prosecutorial misconduct, evidence suppression, witness tampering, and willfully misleading congress, all of which allegedly happened in Anderson’s case.
President Biden rejected Congressman Moore’s request and instead submitted the request to the Air Force to investigate themselves. The Air Force concluded there were no wrongdoings in Anderson’s court martial.
Anderson’s latest lawsuit now filed in the 11th Federal District Court in Alabama where he currently lives, substantiates how the Air Force willfully lied in the 4th Federal District Court, and how senior Air Force officials withheld exculpatory evidence Anderson could have used to prove his innocence.
In 2021 Major Anderson declined a presidential pardon from then President Trump, instead requesting for President Trump to order him a new trial so Anderson could present the exculpatory evidence withheld during his initial court martial.
Plans were underway for President Trump to order the new trial for Anderson, but the January 6th attack on the Capitol derailed those efforts.
