(A) Any filing officer may reject for filing or recording any nonconsensual common law lien. This section

shall not be construed to permit rejection of a document that is shown to be authorized by contract, lease or

statute or imposed by a state or federal court of competent jurisdiction or filed by a licensed attorney,

a financial institution including, but not limited to, any commercial bank, savings and loan association or

credit union or a Missouri state licensed mortgage company or mortgage broker.

(B) If a nonconsensual common law lien has been accepted for filing, the filing officer shall accept for filing a

sworn notice of invalid lien on a form provided by the filing officer signed and submitted by the person

against whom such lien was filed or such person's attorney. The form shall be captioned "Notice of Invalid

Lien" and shall state the name and address of the person on whose behalf such notice is filed, the name and

address of the lien claimant and a clear reference to the document or documents the person believes constitute

a nonconsensual common law lien. A copy of the notice of invalid lien shall be mailed by the filing officer to

the lien claimant at the lien claimant's last known address within one business day. No filing officer, county

or the state shall be liable for the acceptance for filing of a nonconsensual common law lien, nor for the

acceptance for filing of a sworn notice of invalid lien pursuant to this subsection.

1.1.6 - Preventing Nonconsensual Liens Against Public Officials

Alaska Statutes § 34.35.950. [Nonconsensual common law liens]

(A) A nonconsensual common law lien is invalid unless the lien is authorized by an order of a court of

competent jurisdiction recognized under state or federal law.

(B) A person may not submit a nonconsensual common law lien under AS 40.17 to the recorder in order to

record the lien unless the lien is accompanied by a specific order authorizing the recording of the lien issued

by a court of competent jurisdiction recognized under state or federal law. When a nonconsensual common

law lien is submitted for recording under this subsection, the court order accompanying the lien shall be

recorded with the lien.

(C) A person may not submit a nonconsensual common law lien under a law authorizing the filing of a lien

against personal property in order to file the lien unless the lien is accompanied by a specific order authorizing

the filing of the lien issued by a court of competent jurisdiction recognized under state or federal law. When a

nonconsensual common law lien is submitted for filing under this subsection, the court order accompanying

the lien shall be filed with the lien.

(D) In this section,

(1) "filed" means the acceptance of a document by a department or person having responsibility for

the receipt and filing of documents that may be filed and that are presented for filing in the place of

filing designated by law, whether or not under applicable law the department or person is directed to

file the document;

(2) "nonconsensual common law lien" means a lien on real or personal property that

(a) is not provided for by a specific state or federal statute;

(b) does not depend on the consent of the owner of the property affected for its existence;

acquainted with everyone, including the accused and his victim. Each juror knew that the farm's

landlord was a nasty bastard who tormented his neighbors, while frequently treating the town's orphans

and widows with derision. By the same token, the tenant-farmer was the salt of the earth, beloved by

everyone. But still, the evidence of his guilt was indisputable. After the evidence was in and the jury

retired to deliberate, it quickly returned to the courtroom to announce its verdict:


"If the accused returns the cow, we find him not guilty.”


The judge was infuriated. His anger heightening, he commanded the jury to return to the jury room

to deliberate — shrilly chastising them for their flagrantly "arrogant" and "illegal" verdict. Not a

moment passed when they re-appeared in the tense courtroom to trumpet their new verdict:


"We find the accused not guilty - and he can keep the cow."


The American Jury, Justice Black reminds his listeners, is effectively omnipotent in rendering

an acquittal. What hits home in Justice Black's story is the deeply held American notion that juries

often perform an independent role in a system in which the people - not prosecutors, judges or lawyers -

have the last word. In the end, if the jury wishes to let the defendant keep the cow, that is what

will happen. Respectfully submitted:
