Harsh Penalties for Attorneys who deliberately allow the Statute of Limitations to expire on Federal cases

READ AND SIGN.. THEN PASS IT ON TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS


https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/harsh-penalties-attorneys-who-deliberately-allow-statute-limitations-expire-federal-cases

Created by R.P. on November 21, 2017

We, The People of the United States, petition federal legislators to create and enact legislation to indefinitely extend the Statute of Limitations for crimes against victims of deliberate judicial violations, and abuse, by attorneys and judges in the United States. We cannot allow those who take an oath to ethically uphold the law, and to protect clients and others, to damage the lives of people who place their trust in them. This petition calls for harsh legal penalties to be given to attorneys and judges who deliberately violate the rights of clients and others by fraudulent means, through threats, intimidation, and coercion against anyone in an attempt to avoid prosecution.

Judge Roy Moore and Judge Robert W. Elliott : 2 Open Sores in The "Justice System"

Gadsden, Alabama and Ripley, Mississippi are separated by 175 miles, as the crow flies, but it is fair to say that, between these 2 places, the water is pretty much the same and the gullible people in both those places and everywhere in between seem to be drinking an awful lot of it.

Judge Moore of Gadsden is in the news now because of his predatory conduct against underage girls and his unconscionable behavior he is now using to attempt to silence and discredit his accusers.

"Judge" Robert W. Elliott of Ripley, Mississippi, while not accused of sexually molesting underage girls, is guilty of other misbehavior which smacks of abuse of power and authority. In his case, he engages in witness intimidation, selective prosecution, and a general pattern of discrediting and attacking accusers and witness to the MURDER, by his brother (Dr. Charles Elliott) of a woman who was his FOURTH wife.

They operate from the same playbook. If you don't believe it, then try this: read again what the media reports that Judge Moore is doing to those who accuse him and then read my blog entry about what "Judge" Elliott did to me, when I tried to blow the whistle on the MURDER that this man tries, EVEN NOW, to cover up.

IF YOU THINK JUDGE MOORE IS THE ONLY "PROBLEM" THAT NEEDS ATTENTION, THINK AGAIN. I KNOW OF THESE TWO, BUT MY BEST GUESS IS THAT THERE ARE AT LEAST DOZENS JUST LIKE BOTH THESE MEN WHO NEED TO BE "REMOVED" FROM ACCESS TO "AUTHORITY".

READ AND DECIDE FOR YOURSELF. ARE THEY ALIKE MORE THAN THEY ARE DIFFERENT?

EXTREMELY TIME-SENSITIVE OPPORTUNITY (AND VERY EASY WORK) FOR A HUNGRY LAWYER IN (OR NEAR) NEW YORK CITY

EXTREMELY TIME-SENSITIVE OPPORTUNITY (AND VERY EASY WORK) FOR A HUNGRY LAWYER IN (OR NEAR) NEW YORK CITY

I need a lawyer immediately since the man I believed would help me made me wait over a week and gave me hope only to tell me at the last minute that he could not help me.

PLEASE FIND ME A LAWYER WHO WILL APPEAR ON 05 DECEMBER 2017 IN NEW YORK CITY WHO IS INTERESTED IN MAKING BETWEEN $25,000.00 AND $30,000.00 FOR FILING A FEW PAPERS ON TIME AND SHOWING UP AT A HEARING THAT WILL PROBABLY LAST LESS THAN 30 MINUTES.

THOMASL.KETCHUMJR@GMAIL.COM

I have a more than one proven disability and was, in fact, previously getting SSA Disability Benefits from 2004 until late March 2009. I was only "suspended" from getting benefits at the time because I could not buy a ticket and fly back to Mississippi from my residence in Romania.

I am a Disabled Federal Retiree (OPM), who has continuously gotten monthly benefits since 2004. 

A Federal Judge found me to have a disabling condition again in 2012 and I have a U.S. government-sponsored set of examinations (results, in-hand) which prove I have additional disabling conditions, including 2 bad shoulders, high blood pressure and vertigo.

I reapplied for SSA Disability benefits, online, from Romania, as soon as I discovered that I could do so from an overseas residence, which was in mid 2015.

A year later, I was finally given a physical examination in Romania under the auspices of the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest, but was denied benefits again (September 2016) and was again denied on appeal thereafter.
 
I filed a timely request for a hearing and it has been scheduled for 05 December 2017.

By any math, I am looking at back benefits all the way to 2012, by law and I am more than willing to accept competent representation for a fee of 25% of back benefits, PLUS 25% of the first year of future benefits, once awarded. Since I was getting close to $20,000.00 per annum in benefits, that puts the estimated fee in the neighborhood of $25,000.00.

Not bad for what will probably bee about 30 minutes of "court time" and, at most, another 2 hours of "office time", doing required paperwork.

WHOEVER YOU ARE, I NEED YOU TO SHOW UP AND GET TOGETHER WITH ME, ON PAPER, THIS WEEK (THAT IS TO SAY, ON OR BEFORE NOVEMBER 08, 2017). OTHERWISE, I GO TWISTING IN THE WIND AND SOMEONE OUT THERE LOSES THE EASIEST MONEY THEY WILL PROBABLY EVER HAVE A CHANCE TO MAKE.

The Last Straw - Part 2

to Francesco|FBUFBUBryanMindyacsbucharestbilousiv
Just In Case You Think I Was Saying Something From An "Uninformed" Perspective... Here is the "Panel" to which, I think, you refer.

 I was scheduled by the Embassy (and remained so for about 2 weeks), at a different hospital in Bucharest (the last time was at Biomedica Clinic, this time was Ponderas University Hospital-part of Regina Maria) for an updated set of examinations right up until my wife called the hospital and got the names of the Doctors (Damian Ionut, Internal Medicine, Dr. Pojaga, Orthopedics, Narian Ioana, Psychiatry) to be conducting the examinations, along with the examination times for each . Less than one (1) hour after she made this inquiry, some woman from the U.S. Embassy called me (at 1600 local time) and claimed that the "hospital had cancelled the appointment". Curiously, when my wife called to confirm this allegation by this nameless person at the Embassy, she was informed by the hospital that I REMAINED SCHEDULED FOR THE APPOINTMENT.

Respectfully,

Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr.

Dear Sir,

Over the past couple of weeks, a lot has happened with respect to my SSA Disability application.

I have forwarded, I think, most of the relevant emails to you in the hope that you might provide some feedback on what has happened.

Please take a look at your in-box and, if you cannot help me yourself, then please pass along my requests to someone authorized to get back to me.

Thank you for your help in this matter.

Respectfully,

Dear Mr. Ketchum,

I have been involved with your case since the beginning and as I stated in one of the prior emails we have taken all possible actions to assist you the best we can. 

To summarize the most recent events; following your request for appeal, the Office of Hearing had requested SSA to assist them with obtaining additional medical evidence.  As the letter from OIG (Office of Inspector General) stated, we rely on local sources to perform these medical evolution, in this case the US Embassy in Romania contacted all the sources available, the response, unfortunately, was that the requested evaluation could not be performed. According to their policy and standards due to the complexity, the evaluation needed to be performed by a panel of physicians not just a single doctor.  We sent SSA the response which was finally forwarded to the Hearing Office.

The Hearing Office handling your case will make a decision based on all available evidence and will respond directly to you.  The notice will include all the necessary instructions and appeal rights.

Thank you.

Dear Mr. Scrivo,

Thank you for your response. However, I need for you to more completely understand that, in 2016, when I was last evaluated pursuant to a similar SSA request, I WAS SUBJECTED TO AN EXAMINATION BY " A PANEL" OF MORE THAN 3 PHYSICIANS, INCLUDING SPECIALISTS IN ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY, PSYCHIATRY, AND INTERNAL MEDICINE.

As far as I can tell, there was absolutely NO REASON WHATSOEVER TO BELIEVE THAT the series of evaluations scheduled at the Ponderas University Medical Center in Bucharest a few weeks ago would have  included any less thorough of a series of examinations by a similar set of highly qualified medical and psychiatric experts.

It stretches the concept of "credibility", for most people, that an award winning hospital in the nation's capital would not suffice as a setting for this series of ordered and long-scheduled examinations requested by SSA.

Most people, I feel, will not believe this excuse, offered by the nameless person at the U.S. Embassy (just hours before I was to travel to Bucharest) for the cancellation of these exams.

I feel I am being told that, if I want what I am entitled to as a U.S. Disabled citizen, I will be forced to travel outside of Romania and that this "requirement" is BEING UNIQUELY APPLIED TO ME for some, as yet, unknown reason.

Someone needs to make this right or, as minimum, quit insulting my intelligence with plain and obvious lies about the so-called why's and wherefores behind the refusal of the U.S. government to allow my disability application to get the equal treatment, under the law, to which I am entitled.

Nothing in the law prevents me from filing a law suit in the U.S. District Court of my choice and making a public record which gets the names of those who have mishandled my application, my appeal, my examination results, and who interfered with my scheduled examinations this time around and the "why" of all this, using the "Discovery" process. I will remind all concerned that I do not have to reside in the United States in order to access the Federal Court system there. The fact of my citizenship and at least one Federal "respondent" (and a "Federal question") entitles me to use the U.S. District Court system.

It was my desire and hope to resolve these issues without the need for increased "ugliness" all around. However, the manner in which everyone seems to have "closed ranks" around this lie being put out by someone at the Bucharest Embassy is making a resolution without the need for legal action less and less likely.

I ask you to assist in resolving this issue and offer again to resolve my claims by adding years to my age to the point of reaching maximum retirement age and simply placing me on ordinary SSA retirement, instead of having to deal with many years of "back benefits" and many more years under SSA Disability responsibility.

I simply need my many well-documented (and mentioned to you more times than I can count) health issues addressed and, access to Medicare/Medicaid under SSA Disability would resolve those issues. The same ends may be had by placing me on normal SSA retirement. The money issues would be addressed by increased benefits paid at maximum retirement age, which would have been done, administratively, by SSA at my maximum retirement age in any event.

I am prepared to overlook my continued mistreatment by those who have taken a hand in obstructing my application for Disability retirement if we can come to an agreement such as I have described, above.

Whatever you can do in order to make this happen will be appreciated by me and ought to be appreciated by all those affected by this incident.

Thank you, in advance, for your consideration and attention to this matter.

Respectfully,

Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr.

The Last Straw - Part 1

Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr.

To Whomever This May Concern,

I, Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr., a U.S. citizen, married for over 10 years to a Romanian National, and who holds legal permanent resident status in Romania since 2006, am in receipt of an email, purportedly from some nameless somebody at the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest, which claims as follows:

Dear Mr. Ketchum,

Our Embassy was unable to schedule your medical appointments in Romania. Social Security Administration was informed about this.  We regret the inconvenience.

By this communication, I respectfully request and require, WITH FULL SPECIFICITY, the explanation for this alleged "inability".

The response(s), if any, will be sent to the Administrative Law Judge at the Social Security Administration, who surely ORDERED, this examination.

It is noteworthy here (and should be carefully considered by the Respondent(s), if any) that in 2016 NO SUCH INABILITY EXISTED to schedule my "medical appointments in Romania", in accordance with a similar request from the Social Security Administration.
In point of fact, in 2016, I was scheduled for examinations over a two day period, which were, thereafter, NOT FORWARDED TO THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION..as evidenced by the fact that the ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS ARE IN MY HANDS, MAILED TO ME BY SOME OTHER PERSON AT THE SAME U.S. EMBASSY IN BUCHAREST.

In the 2016, during two days of scheduled examinations in Romania (some 14 months ago), my wife and I together attended every scheduled "examination", then-scheduled by the U.S. Embassy. Together, we found that I could not be abused when a witness, such as my wife, was present for every aspect of the examination. She was a direct witness to several attempts to have me sign documents or make statements against my interests and, her presence aided me in thwarting these attempts during the examinations. 

We viewed the 2016 experience as instructive as to how any other or future examinations may be conducted. That said, our approach was more proactive when it came to compliance with the scheduled examinations and so, we did our homework, finding out the correct addresses and navigational information about getting to the new examination point. We also wanted to be able to send my medical records, in advance, to the right persons, so that our time together would be put to the best possible use during the examinations. To that end, the records were sent almost a week ahead of schedule to the email address provided by the Embassy and verified by the Hospital involved.

After all that preparation for this second set of examinations in 14 months,  this time around I was scheduled by the Embassy (and remained so for about 2 weeks), at a different hospital in Bucharest (the last time was at Biomedica Clinic, this time was Ponderas University Hospital-part of Regina Maria) for an updated set of examinations right up until my wife called the hospital and got the names of the Doctors (Damian Ionut, Internal Medicine, Dr. Pojaga, Orthopedics, Narian Ioana, Psychiatry) to be conducting theexaminations, along with the examination times for each . Less than one (1) hour after she made this inquiry, some woman from the U.S. Embassy called me (at 1600 local time) and claimed that the "hospital had cancelled the appointment". Curiously, when my wife called to confirm this allegation by this nameless person at the Embassy, she was informed by the hospital that I REMAINED SCHEDULED FOR THE APPOINTMENT.

The response offered, if any, will be whatever it is. However, if the claim here is that I could not be scheduled for medical appointments in Romania due to either the inability to locate either a doctor or hospital in Romania which was actually able to examine me in accordance with an Embassy request, THEN THIS IS A DEMONSTRABLE UNTRUTH. My own belief (and that of my wife) is that this is yet another attempt to "jerk me around" with some other form of legal, physical, and/or mental abuse at the hand of someone purporting to represent  the United States government which the Embassy staff in Romania now finds that they cannot repeat, themselves.

On the other hand, if there now exists some legal impediment to examining me "in Romania", then I have a right to know, precisely, what that "impediment" either is or may be. Furthermore, (and more to the point) the Administrative Law Judge which will hear this matter at the Social Security Administration will demand to know why this ORDERED EXAMINATION WAS NOT CARRIED OUT.

THE RESPONDING PARTY CAN BE ABSOLUTELY SURE OF THIS: IF YOU GUYS DON'T HAVE A BETTER EXCUSE FOR FAILURE AND/OR REFUSAL TO SCHEDULE THIS EXAMINATION "IN ROMANIA" - like the last time, THEN THIS JUDGE IS CLEARLY GOING TO HEAR MY SIDE OF WHY I THINK YOU WERE "UNABLE TO SCHEDULE" MY "MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS IN ROMANIA".

I stand by my earlier assertions about my medical and other conditions which were all CLEARLY DOCUMENTED in the examinations done "in Romania" in 2016. The X-rays, and what they show, will not have changed in any substantial or significant way so as to mitigate a result that demonstrates complete disability with respect to BOTH OF my shoulders, as found by the Orthopedic Surgeon who examined the results and reported his findings, in writing last year.

Call me whatever you like, but I have already been illegally "extradited" once, over something that did not even legally apply to me, whereupon I was returned to Romania, after 27 months of harassment and the "case" against "me" dismissed.

I have lived a quiet, peaceful life since my return to Romania, just after Christmas in 2012 and have done NOTHING to earn the ire of anyone in the U.S. government. Accordingly, my wife and I can see NO EXCUSE FOR THIS SORT OF TREATMENT BY MY GOVERNMENT and, in light of the fact that my OWN GOVERNMENT FOUND ME DISABLED IN 2004 AND, AGAIN, IN 2012, I SEE NO REASON WHATSOEVER FOR THIS CONTINUED FAILURE AND/OR REFUSAL to grant my request for SSA Disability Benefits all the way back to 2012, in accordance with my request and in accordance with U.S. law and regulations governing this subject.

In any event, I await your response(s), if any, and promise to faithfully relay whatever response I am provided with to the Administrative Judge at the Social Security Administration, without delay or editing of any sort, whatsoever.

The appropriate Respondent should know this: the last time a government agency thumbed their nose at an order by an Administrative Law Judge concerning me, it cost them 6 years of back pay and ended up getting me retired under OPM rules in the first place.

Unless a very good reason is offered by the person in the position of highest authority at the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest, or the order ends up getting complied with, I expect a similar result this time and, unless this nameless person at the Embassy who I suspect is actually behind all of this is a U.S. Citizen and a tenured employee of the State Department, then I expect them to lose their job over my ill treatment by them, taken in the name of my government.  I also respectfully request that the Administrative Law Judge in this matter immediately find for me and award my benefits without further delay as a sanction against those in the United States government who have continued to abuse me during this process.

Anyway, folks. I need a name.

Respectfully,

Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr.

Subject: Now What?

Dear Ms. Maxwell,

This will serve to follow-up on my most recent exchange with you (around 22August) which was directly related to the cancellation of a scheduled set of examinations, made at the request of the Social Security Administration, in connection with my appeal and request for a hearing on my Disability Application.

As you may recall, the Embassy staff in Bucharest communicated with me, on or about 03August, that the SSA had requested "an expedited" set on examinations for me. To this end, I was told that I was scheduled for examinations at a large local private hospital.

At the very last possible minute, I was told by phone (at 1600 the day before the scheduled exams) and by email that my appointments had been cancelled (allegedly by the hospital and NOT the Embassy). I was told, at the time, that I would be "rescheduled as soon as possible".

That was over a week ago, now, without any further communication from the Embassy or SSA.

I respectfully request an update as to the status of my requested hearing and/or my application, itself, and whether or not (and if yes, then when) any examinations may be scheduled in support of my claim.

My situation is becoming dire, both physically and financially, and I require a prompt resolution to this matter in order to move forward with treatment options and to otherwise take such other and further steps as may be necessary in order to pursue my legal rights to SSA Disability benefits.

I respectfully renew my request for Senator Cochran to intervene on my behalf in this matter as a citizen, constituent, and registered voter in Mississippi.

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

Respectfully,

Thomas Lowell Ketchum, Jr.
