Subject: Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Request


Dear Disclosure Officer:


This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I request that a certified copy of the following document be provided to Me, without delay:


1. commission signed by the President of the United States of America and countersigned by the Attorney General, appointing the Hon. Dale A. Drozd to the office of federal magistrate judge, as required by 5 U.S.C. sections 2104 and 2902. (Mr. Drozd currently claims to have been duly commissioned to preside on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, at Sacramento, California.)


I request a waiver of all fees for this request.


Disclosure of the requested information to Me is in the public interest, because it is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations and activities of the federal government, and is not primarily in My commercial interest.


See also 5 U.S.C. 552(a)(4)(B).


If you are not the correct person to whom this FOIA request should be directed, please forward it without delay to the correct person(s).


Thank you for your consideration of this FOIA request.



Sincerely yours,


/s/ Paul Andrew Mitchell
