This is a follow-up to my letter of November 26, 1992 in
which I expressed concern about the docketing of case #92-6732,
Thomas (Mary Huddle et. al.) v. Ronald Reagan. et. al..
On November 27, 1992 my wife, and co-petitioner in this
case, Ellen Thomas visited your office and discovered that our
pleadings had, in fact, been lost. Ellen supplied a second copy
of our application for certiorari with a 375 page Appendix.
We received notice by mail that the case had been docketed
on November 30th.
On December 3, 1992 I visited your office and discovered
that our application, and the first thirty pages of the Appendix
had actually been filed, but the other 340odd appendix pages had
vanished. At first the clerk assisting me insisted that the papers
contained in the record were all that had been received. When
it was pointed out that the thirty pages of appendix attached
to the application in the record was identical to the first thirty
pages in a copy of the Appendix which I had with me, they admitted
that the other pages seemed to be missing. Another copy of the
Appendix was made from the copy I had brought with me, and that
copy was included in the record.
I am still concerned about insuring that a complete copy
of our pleadings reach each of the Justices' chambers, and the
Library of Congress' Records and Briefs.
Although we are indigent we have been able to acquire ten
copies of our pleadings. I would like to deliver a copy to the
Justices' chambers and the Library of Congress for inclusion in
Please advise me on these issues.
