E-MAIL LIST FOR 5TH CIRCUIT U.S. COURT OF APPEALS PLUS SPECIFICATIONS AS TO CHARGES AGAINST MICHAEL P. MILLS, CHIEF JUDGE, USDC N. MS.

Your Honors, Other Interested Parties, Ladies and Gentlemen,

By this email, I am writing to you and each of you in an effort to initiate a formal complaint against Chief Judge Michael P. Mills of the Northern District of Mississippi for “judicial misconduct”, within the meaning of the applicable rules and statutes. If I am required to perform other acts in order to further this claim, I hereby request assistance and instructions for doing so as needed.

I have documentary and other evidence which will substantiate my claims that Chief Judge Michael P. Mills displayed conduct in handling my protracted illegal custody within the Northern District of Mississippi, which, among other things violated one or more of the following:

(h) Misconduct. Cognizable misconduct: (1) is conduct prejudicial to the effective and expeditious administration of the business of the courts. Misconduct includes, but is not limited to: (A) using the judge's office to obtain special treatment for friends or relatives; (B) accepting bribes, gifts, or other personal favors related to the judicial office; (C) having improper discussions with parties or counsel for one side in a case; (D) treating litigants or attorneys in a demonstrably egregious and hostile manner; (E) engaging in partisan political activity or making inappropriately partisan statements; (F) soliciting funds for organizations; or (G) violating other specific, mandatory standards of judicial conduct, such as those pertaining to restrictions on outside income and requirements for financial disclosure. (2) is conduct occurring outside the performance of official duties if the conduct might have a prejudicial effect on the administration of the business of the courts, including a substantial and widespread lowering of public confidence in the courts among reasonable people.

More specifically, he held me in custody from August 3, 2012 through and including December 12, 2012, in a manner which, according to his statements from the bench, violated my civil rights.
Furthermore, Judge Mills, completely disregarded 5th Circuit controlling case law by attempting to have me sent back to Butner FMC for another “danger study”, after qualified personnel at Butner had already declined to issue a “dangerousness certificate” in my case, as I was held by them to be “not dangerous”. As such, Judge Mills, abused his discretion and completely held the 5th Circuit law in contempt. He did so in a manner completely consistent with previously evidenced egregiously hostile behavior toward me as a “party” in a criminal proceeding.

Having done all of this, he, thereafter found me to be “incompetent”, based on “evidence” which the Social Security Administration has FAILED AND REFUSED to find me “incompetent”, to date.

Accordingly, Judge Mills abused his position, disregarded my constitutional rights to due process and, when it was all said and done, had me thrown out into the street almost 7,000 miles from where I was illegally arrested and kidnapped from in the first place (Romania), WITHOUT SO MUCH AS A PLANE TICKET, PASSPORT, OR ANY MEANS OF SUPPORT WITH WHICH TO BE RETURNED TO MY PLACE OF ARREST.

I am asking you and each of you to address these concerns with Judge Mills. The way I see it, if I am “incompetent” as Judge Mills says, then Social Security, looking at the same evidence, should have reached the same conclusion. Since they (Social Security) seem to be unwilling to see things the way Judge Mills does, then I suggest that the Court undo the damage they have done to me with my fraudulent arrest, kidnapping, illegal imprisonment and fraudulent classification as having some king of mental illness or mental defect, when the experts see thing with me quite differently.

Several weeks ago, I asked Judge Mills politely to address these matters, to no apparent avail. Having exhausted all lesser means of redress, I must raise these matters with you all now and ask for you to act on my behalf.

PACER records document nearly everything I complain about here. However, I will make available any other records in my possession or control in the event that they are required in order to resolve this matter.

Thanking you and each of you, in advance, for any assistance you may provide to me, I am Respectfully,

Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr.

U.S. CHIEF DISTRICT JUDGE MICHAEL P. MILLS (N.D. MS. 5TH CIRCUIT) CHARGED WITH WRONGFUL IMPRISONMENT. FALSE ARREST, FRAUDULENT EXTRADITION, DENIAL OF DUE PROCESS

Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr. thomasl.ketchumjr@gmail.com

Judge Mills,

This is an updated letter, which contains a finding from the Social Security Administration, which basically calls you a liar and which is about to be used to have the matters you took against me "corrected" by either you, your superiors at the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, and or by Congress, which has the power to deal with Judicial abuse by way of impeachment, under provisions of  the U.S. Constitution.
The really important bit is in the attached letter, which speaks for itself.
It has been well more than 2 years since you dismissed the case against me based on your finding that I was allegedly "incompetent", "unrestoreable to competency" and "not a danger to the person or property of others", based on the "evidence", including allegedly "expert" witness testimony given by a variety of Psychiatrists and Psychologists employed by the U.S. Department of Justice.

You need to know that, based on your "findings" with respect to my mental state and, armed with printed copies of the various USDOJ reports upon which you seem to have relied in reaching your "findings" concerning me, I REAPPLIED to the Social Security Administration for REINSTATEMENT of my Social Security Disability Benefits, which had been previously interrupted in 2009, when I was required to visit a doctor in Mississippi instead of being offered an accommodation of seeing a doctor in Romania, to be proctored by a representative of the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest.

Had my benefits been reinstated as requested, based on the documentary evidence provided to the Tupelo Office at the time, I would have been given a back-benefits award which would have made me whole for the entire time since 2009 when I was abusively cut-off last time. Moreover, I would have continuously gotten benefits in addition to the OPM disability benefits, which I have continuously gotten since they were first awarded in early 2004.

I have recently reapplied yet again for reinstatement and, I am informed and I believe, based on statements made by the Federal Benefits Unit Rep in Naples Italy that I am looking at a reinstatement with back benefits all the way back to 2009 based on the documentation provided (the aforementioned exact, same USDOJ records created pursuant to your various Court orders in my case) and the fact that, twice now, since my release by you in 2012, I am being subjected to more abusively dilatory tactics  by the Disability Determination Unit of SSA in Tupelo.

I have complained to Congressman Trent Kelly of the 1st Congressional District for help and his staff has made several inquiries into this longstanding complaint.

I tell you all of this now in order to make something clear to you: You have agreed  and "found" that I am "mentally disabled" in 2011 and again in 2012 and used that as a basis to deny me my right to a jury trial, keep me in the "mental health gulag" from March 2011, through December 12, 2012, then throw me out into the street, 7,000 miles from where I was illegally arrested in the first place. In any case, you say I am disabled. On the other hand, you have a Federal Agency, who's job it is to actually determine "disability", which seems to have difficulty, looking at the EXACT, SAME "EVIDENCE" YOU USED, to find me "disabled"  and, thereby, legally entitled to the kind of Federal Disability Benefits that a person in my position would be entitled to, under the law, if I had actually been "disabled", within the meaning of the statutes.

I have to tell you (and you should already know this from your previous experiences with me), that, if I am NOT "disabled" at SSA based on the EXACT, SAME EVIDENCE you relied on to release me in 2012, then I am going to be forced to file ANOTHER PETITION WITH THE 5TH CIRCUIT IN NEW ORLEANS, explaining, again, how (if it turns out that I am not "mentally disabled" according to a Federal Agency on this very question) you violated my rights to due process (by denying me a jury trial or the right to represent myself based on your BS "finding" that I could not represent myself.
Looks like the above is actually what happened, according to the attached letter.
I would add here that you even, from the bench on December 12, 2012, observed that my civil rights had been violated, as a minimum, by the continued detention of me past the date of the August 2012 hearing, where 5th Circuit Case law plainly says I should have been released on the spot.

So, the way I see it, if you find that I am and was "disabled", mentally, then SSA in Tupelo should see things they way you do and REINSTATE MY BENEFITS, RETROACTIVELY TO 2009 and pay me accordingly. If you cannot bring yourself to make them see things your way, then I have to press my claim that I was not, in fact, "mentally disabled" and that you denied me of several of my civil rights. After all, SSA is a Federal Agency and they have a lot of practice at knowing who is "disabled" and who is not.

In short, it might be worth your while to discuss my situation with the Tupelo SSA Disability Determination Services folks and make sure that you are both on the same page with respect to my situation. One thing is certain, you cannot have it BOTH WAYS. I am either "disabled" or I am not. If I am "disabled", then I am owed a lot of money from SSA. If I am NOT "disabled", then I am owed other recompense, including things like criminal record expungement and travel expenses from the Court. If the former happens, then we are DONE.
UPDATE: 08/12/2016
You will please note the attached scan of a letter I got today from the Social Security Administration, wherein it states that I AM NOT FOUND TO HAVE A MENTAL DISABILITY, based at least in part on EXACTLY THE SAME DATA USED BY YOU TO DENY ME A “SPEEDY TRIAL” AND TO OTHERWISE JUSTIFY MY FRAUDLENT DETENTION BY FEDERAL AUTHORITIES (EXPRESSLY SANCTIONED BY YOU) FOR THE BETTER PART OF TWO (2) YEARS.
I DEMAND THAT YOU PROMPTLY REVISIT THE CASE (MADE IN THE NAME OF MY FATHER, BUT MISAPPLIED TO ME) AND HAVE MY ENTIRE CASE VACATED, MY “RECORDS” EXPUNGED AND TO MAKE ME WHOLE, FINANCIALLY AND IN EVERY OTHER WAY FOR MY WRONGFUL ARREST, FRAUDULENT EXTRADITION, CONTINUED FALSE IMPRISONMENT AND SUMMARY “RELEASE” WITHOUT SO MUCH AS A “SORRY ABOUT THAT”, OR A PLANE TICKET HOME IN 2012.
YOU HAVE TEN (10) DAYS TO FIX THIS TO MY SATISFACTION BEFORE I PUT THIS IN THE FACE OF EVERY JUDGE AND CLERK IN THE 5TH FEDERAL CIRCUIT.
I am informed and I believe that you have the authority to re-open my case, Sua Sponte, without any petition from any party, including me.
That said, for the next ten (10) days only, I will accept $200,000.00 and having "my" case vacated, along with a complete expungement of all records related to me, as settlement of my claims against you and the United States.
THAT IS NOT A THREAT OF ANY SORT. IT IS A PROMISE THAT I WILL BE HEARD, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, AND THAT I WILL HAVE EITHER RECOMPENSE OR BE AVENGED IN COURT, VERY PUBLICLY.
AS ALWAYS, THE CHOICE ABOUT HOW THIS ENDS YOURS. 
SINCERELY,

Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr.

Dear Ms. Ryan,

Thank you for your response. All I ask is that you pass this last email along to the Congressman. That way seems a lot more efficient than simply hoping that enough other constituents see it that someone will finally mention it to his face.

As I may have said, in any case, the message was not for you, personally.

It is a given that you, personally, cannot do anything to "move the case along". However, members of Congress are an altogether different story.



Respectfully,

Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr.

 AND: "OPEN LETTERS BLOG"

Dear Congressman Kelly,

This will serve to respectfully request that your office intervene in the matter of my Social Security Disability Benefits re-application, which was first handled by your office approximately one year ago, after an e-mail request sent to then caseworker Brandy Burnette, following an online re-application.

You will please take notice that the records in this matter clearly reflect that a series of contacts with FBU Naples Office followed your initial inquiries on my behalf and that, at that time, it was well-established that I had been fighting for reinstatement of my Social Security Disability Benefits, in one way or another, since 2009, when they were first abusively terminated over a failure to fly to Mississippi from Romania (where I was residing), instead of making a reasonable accommodation to have any required examination or examinations conducted in Romania (which is precisely what we have done this time around).

You will also note that I made a similar re-application, in person, at a Social Security Office in Tupelo, Mississippi in December of 2012, and that, at that time, as before, I was not allowed to take a physical or other examination in Romania (still my residence) when I was forced to return from Mississippi less than 2 weeks after I had re-applied in person.

After a lot of wrangling, your office, working through a Mr. Bryan Knouse in Baltimore, managed to get me scheduled for a series of examinations in Bucharest (well over 70 miles distant from my house in Romania, one-way)). I was told at the time that the Embassy would pay the expenses of the examinations themselves and that I would be provided a room in a hotel for one night, since I was being scheduled for examination of one type or another over a period of two (2) successive days.

I was also told that I would be reimbursed for expense incurred in travel, provided I gave someone a "bank account in Romania" min which I was told any reimbursement would be direct-deposited.

The hotel provided was made completely inaccessible since all possibility of vehicle parking was denied ( as explained in a separate e-mail). Accordingly, we cancelled the reservation in time to reimburse the government for the room. However, we were, thereafter, forced to return to my domicile and make another round trip the following day.

I felt it was only fair to ask that we be reimbursed for expenses, based on the GSA-table for Bucharest for two (2) separate days of travel and that is what was requested. A paste of the table was provided in an earlier email to the parties involved.

I have no bank account in Romania and, if the people at the Embassy understood the law (Foreign Asset Reporting Act), they would understand why that was the case. In any event, I provided my complete USA bank information in a timely way and reasonably expected PROMPT payment for two (2) days of meals and incidental expenses, like the law provides for.

I ALSO expected PROMPT payment of my SSA Disability Benefits claim, since the Orthopedic Surgeon I met with on the second day plainly indicated that I was disabled and backed that up with multiple x-rays.

To-date, I remain unpaid for either of the above and, in spite of many emails on these and related subjects, I seem to be ignored by those required to take action in these matters.

Congressman Kelly, I am not asking for anything that I am not legally entitled-to. By any math, the law says that benefits are payable for three (3) years PRIOR TO the date of application for benefits. Since It has been a year since I re-applied most recently, I am entitled to 4 years of "back-benefits" without any discussion or other, more extraordinary documentation. I would argue that I am owed for an ADDITIONAL period of three (3) years PRIOR TO 2012, since I made personal application in December 2012 AND, like in 2009, through no fault of my own, I was not permitted to complete the examinations in Romania, instead of Mississippi. This was the same problem I had in 2009 and it was the same type of abuse in 2012 that first resulted in my being removed from SSA Disability in 2009 in the first place.

The records clearly show that I was getting SSA Disability benefits from at least 2004. I have also been on OPM disability retirement, continuously, for a like period. The only difference is that SSA stopped paying me, abusively, but OPM kept on paying me in accordance with the law.

I am respectfully requesting that your office promptly get me paid for the two days of Meal and incidental expenses for examinations attended by me in Bucharest and I am also requesting that, since there is no reason at all to deny that I am and have been disabled, that I should be IMMEDIATELY placed on SSA Disability Monthly Benefits and that, as an absolute minimum, I am given "back benefits" ALL THE WAY BACK TO 2009 (3 YEARS PRIOR TO THE 2012 RE-APPLICATION) SINCE I DID NOT FAIL OR REFUSE TO ATTEND EXAMINATIONS, BUT WAS NOT REASONABLY ACCOMMODATED TO HAVE THEM DONE IN ROMANIA AS I WAS RECENTLY.

Thanking you, in advance, for your prompt attention to these matters, I remain, 

Respectfully,

Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr.

Now, Since It's Impossible To Deny My Disability, Y'all Need To Pay-Up Without Further Delay

Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr. thomasl.ketchumjr@gmail.com

Jun 16 (5 days ago)
to FBU|FBUacsbucharestBryanSheliaKaren
To All Interested Parties,

This will serve to report to each of you that I met yesterday (15June2016) with Dr. Liviu Andrian, an Orthopedic Surgeon, who had been called-in by the Bio-Medica Clinic to perform an Orthopedic evaluation of me, documented by x-rays, in connection with my claim for Social Security Disability Benefits, which had been arranged by the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest.

You may expect from him, in short order, his written, detailed report of my condition, which he related in the office to my wife and me as that of my being "disabled", within the meaning of Social Security's own definition. His e-mail address is liviuandrian@yahoo.com, with phone numbers of 021 599 2300 (fixed) and 0744 899 697 (mobile).

As it is only necessary to establish one (1) form of permanent disability in order to successfully support my claim, I submit that, upon receipt by you of this man's evaluation, then I should be considered "disabled" and, immediately thereafter, benefits awarded, including, but not limited to "back-benefits", which pre-date the most recent "re-application", online, in June of 2015, by, as a minimum, the legal limit of three (3) calendar years (making "back benefits" payable all the way to June of 2012, under this scenario.

I would further argue that I should be paid "back benefits" even further, based on the fact that I "re-applied" for benefits in December of 2012, in person, at the Social Security Office in Tupelo, Mississippi, and was, through no fault of my own, not permitted to have the required physical examination conducted in Romania (where I actually live) at the time.

I asked for and did not get an "accommodation" at the time in much the same way as I was previously denied the opportunity to see a doctor in Romania in 2009, when my disability benefits were terminated for failure to get on a plane at the time and fly to Mississippi when I could just as easily have seen a doctor then as I have just done now.

If we must, we will agree to disagree on the extent of "back benefits" which I am both legally and morally owed and I will reserve the right to appeal any part of your decision, including the "back benefits" award, with which I continue to take issue.

The bottom line, however, is that, by any math, I am now found to be disabled by at least one doctor hired by the Social Security Administration and I request and expect to be paid disability benefits very, very promptly.

In a related matter, as I pointed-out to each of you within the last 24 hours, I was unable to use the hotel room you got for me and I asked the Embassy to be refunded the money by the Hilton. I am now requesting to be reimbursed POV mileage for two round trips from my Romanian home of record (SEE: Bank data, below) to the Bio-Medica Clinic, where I was examined on two (2) successive days (June 14 and 15, 2016).

I do not know what the current G.S.A.  POV mileage rate is, but I am assuming that it is much the same as it would be in the United States. I also do not know, for certain, exactly how far it is from my home to and from the clinic. However, my trip odometer indicates a round trip, each day of approximately 200 kilometers. Two days of that is 400 kilometers. I am informed and I believe that a kilometer is about 6/10 of one mile. Accordingly, I am informed and I believe that you owe me "mileage reimbursement" for about 240 miles.

Please consult the per diem schedule for an update on the current reimbursement rate. My claim is for whatever you come up with for two round trips based on something we can all agree on like google maps.

I make no other per diem claims for either meals or other expenses. I simply ask you to transfer whatever my legal reimbursement for POV-use mileage may be to my account in the United States. This is also where I request that you deposit my Social Security Disability Benefits, including "back benefits"

Why This SSA Disability Evaluation Is REALLY Important

Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr. thomasl.ketchumjr@gmail.com

7:34 AM (12 hours ago)
to FBUacsbucharestBryanSheliaKarenjmillspaul.robertsSallie_Wilkers.tomtomlevidiotis
To All Interested Parties,

As most ofyou already know, I have been scheduled for two (2) days of examinations, both physical and mental, at an Embassy-approved site in Bucharest, Romania, for on or about 14 and 15 June 2016.

I plan to attend these evaluations and I fully expect to be found PHYSICALLY disabled based on two bad shoulders, hearing loss, and other PHYSICAL conditions which do not lend themselves to complete resolution through most conventional treatment methods.

The question comes down to whether or not I am to be found "PSYCHOLOGICALLY" disabled, as the U.S. District Court has found, based on alleged multiple "expert" evaluations, performed by employees of the U.S. Department of Justice.

My argument is that "a disability is a disability" and that I should end-up being approved for SSA Disability, REGARDLESS. However, I also feel that I am NOT PSYCHOLOGICALLY disabled in the manner found by Judge Mills. He says I am "Incompetent", within the meaning of 18 USC Section 4241-4247. In finding me as such, he has permanently disabled me from a legal stand-point.

It is my view that he (Judge Mills) did this for political reasons, as a favor to a fellow Judge in Mississippi (as I have more fully described, elsewhere), so that I would be denied a trial in front of a jury, which would have shed light on a murder in which he was involved in 1990. Since there is no statute of limitations on murder in Mississippi, it was necessary to shut me up in the way that he has. Otherwise, his friend and fellow Judge goes to jail, along with his brother.

If I am NOT found "psychologically disabled", within the meaning of the law and statutes of the United States, then I want my Federal Records "cleaned-up" and any criminal records relating in any way to this whole sorry episode EXPUNGED. I will never get those 27 months back, but the damage can still be mitigated.

Most of you can do nothing about the "expungement" part of this request. That is within the exclusive purview of Judge Mills. However, it is very important for all parties to fully understand just how much is riding on the psychological finding of the examainations scheduled for next week, as of this writing.

As the paste below reflects, I wrote to Judge Mills last October (2015) and put the problem to him, bluntly. I have pasted an except from it for all to see here.

If I am found "psychologically disabled", as Judge Mills says, then I am owed a LOT of money in back-benefits and Judge Mills is vindicated. 

It is my view that it is NOT the "expert" job of the Justice Department to do what the Social Security Administration is legally charged with doing on a daily basis.

If, on the other hand, you find that I am NOT "psychologically disabled", as Judge Mills maintains that I am, then I plan to use the Official finds of the SSA examination to document a complaint about Judge Mills to his colleagues at the 5th Circuit Court of appeals. I also plan to publish the text of any such finding on the web for all to see and to, hopefully, enlist the aid of others in getting this man impeached.

Do I have "an axe to grind"?  Yes, I do, but that does NOT make me either wrong or "incompetent".

I look forward to the examinations next week, and to your published results soon afterwards.

Thanking you all, in advance, for your attention and understanding, I am 

Respectfully,

Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr.

Dear Judge Mills,

It has been well more than 2 years since you dismissed the case against me based on your finding that I was allegedly "incompetent", "unrestoreable to competency" and "not a danger to the person or property of others", based on the "evidence", including allegedly "expert" witness testimony given by a variety of Psychiatrists and Psychologists employed by the U.S. Department of Justice.

You need to know that, based on your "findings" with respect to my mental state and, armed with printed copies of the various USDOJ reports upon which you seem to have relied in reaching your "findings" concerning me, I REAPPLIED to the Social Security Administration for REINSTATEMENT of my Social Security Disability Benefits, which had been previously interrupted in 2009, when I was required to visit a doctor in Mississippi instead of being offered an accommodation of seeing a doctor in Romania, to be proctored by a representative of the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest.

Had my benefits been reinstated as requested, based on the documentary evidence provided to the Tupelo Office at the time, I would have been given a back-benefits award which would have made me whole for the entire time since 2009 when I was abusively cut-off last time. Moreover, I would have continuously gotten benefits in addition to the OPM disability benefits, which I have continuously gotten since they were first awarded in early 2004.

I have recently reapplied yet again for reinstatement and, I am informed and I believe, based on statements made by the Federal Benefits Unit Rep in Naples Italy that I am looking at a reinstatement with back benefits all the way back to 2009 based on the documentation provided (the aforementioned exact, same USDOJ records created pursuant to your various Court orders in my case) and the fact that, twice now, since my release by you in 2012, I am being subjected to more abusively dilatory tactics  by the Disability Determination Unit of SSA in Tupelo.

I have complained to Congressman Trent Kelly of the 1st Congressional District for help and his staff has made several inquiries into this longstanding complaint.

I tell you all of this now in order to make something clear to you: You have agreed  and "found" that I am "mentally disabled" in 2011 and again in 2012 and used that as a basis to deny me my right to a jury trial, keep me in the "mental health gulag" from March 2011, through December 12, 2012, then throw me out into the street, 7,000 miles from where I was illegally arrested in the first place. In any case, you say I am disabled. On the other hand, you have a Federal Agency, who's job it is to actually determine "disability", which seems to have difficulty, looking at the EXACT, SAME "EVIDENCE" YOU USED, to find me "disabled"  and, thereby, legally entitled to the kind of Federal Disability Benefits that a person in my position would be entitled to, under the law, if I had actually been "disabled", within the meaning of the statutes.

I have to tell you (and you should already know this from your previous experiences with me), that, if I am NOT "disabled" at SSA based on the EXACT, SAME EVIDENCE you relied on to release me in 2012, then I am going to be forced to file ANOTHER PETITION WITH THE 5TH CIRCUIT IN NEW ORLEANS, explaining, again, how (if it turns out that I am not "mentally disabled" according to a Federal Agency on this very question) you violated my rights to due process (by denying me a jury trial or the right to represent myself based on your BS "finding" that I could not represent myself.

I would add here that you even, from the bench on December 12, 2012, observed that my civil rights had been violated, as a minimum, by the continued detention of me past the date of the August 2012 hearing, where 5th Circuit Case law plainly says I should have been released on the spot.

So, the way I see it, if you find that I am and was "disabled", mentally, then SSA in Tupelo should see things they way you do and REINSTATE MY BENEFITS, RETROACTIVELY TO 2009 and pay me accordingly. If you cannot bring yourself to make them see things your way, then I have to press my claim that I was not, in fact, "mentally disabled" and that you denied me of several of my civil rights. After all, SSA is a Federal Agency and they have a lot of practice at knowing who is "disabled" and who is not.

In short, it might be worth your while to discuss my situation with the Tupelo SSA Disability Determination Services folks and make sure that you are both on the same page with respect to my situation. One thing is certain, you cannot have it BOTH WAYS. I am either "disabled" or I am not. If I am "disabled", then I am owed a lot of money from SSA. If I am NOT "disabled", then I am owed other recompense, including things like criminal record expungement and travel expenses from the Court. If the former happens, then we are DONE.
