9. The class action lawsuit was a civil suit, thus
claiming that, as you wrote above, "the charges include premeditated mass murder and premeditated acts of high treason" is incorrect. If such charges were filed, it would have to be in a criminal suit.

See for explanation and discussion of the "sovereign immunity" doctrine. This is not something the judge just made up on the spot.
