Office of the Clerk
Washingon, D.C. 20543
ATT: William K.Suter
This is a follow-up to my letter of November 26, 1992 in which ZI 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 340- odd 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 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 Justicesí chambers, and the Library of Congressí Records and Briefs.
Although we are indigent we have been able to acquire ten ccopies of our pleadings. I would like to deliver a copy to the Justicesí chambers and the Library of Congress for inclusion in their records.
Please advise me on these issues.
