RE: Formal Complaint
Dear Chief Judge Donetta W. Ambrose:
(1) On November 5, 2003, (NAME REMOVED) signed a U.S. Mail Return
Receipt, 7003 2260 0003 3717 9172. However, the mail, for a second
time, wasn't processed by the Office of the Clerk for the Western
District of Pennsylvania. That is the pleading wasn't docketed and the
mail has since disappeared.
(2) I placed an identification note on the mail specifically addressed
to the clerk's office to distinguish it from the courtesy copy mailed
specifically to Judge Cercone's chambers.
(3) The clerk's office denied the mail was received.
(4) The judge's chambers acknowledged receipt of the pleading, but
said "nothing could be done because a copy of the pleadings wasn't
first docketed with the Clerk's office."
(5) Later, the clerk's office suggested in defense of the missing
mail, that I had only sent mail to Judge Cercone (unaware that I had
placed an identification note on the pleadings).
