Case FactsEdit

The government passed the Tax Code on November 18, put together by Major Executive Stavok, Andrew Hester, and Nathan Maine. The law called for a tax which had different rates depending on levels of income. This was the first time the government had ever issued a tax on business. First Nation Consulting, a business within the Triumvirate, brought forth civil charges against the government claiming the tax was unconstitutional.

Ermier, the owner of First Nation Consulting, and a renowned Triumvirate private sector attorney lead the prosecution, while Chief Attorney Arnold Ogamon, the most vocal Executive against the law when it was proposed, was legally required to defend the law in court.
