TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

The United States hereby notoriously appears specially, not generally, and ex rel. Paul Andrew Mitchell, Private Attorney General and Agent of the United States as Qui Tam Relator, for the limited purposes of:  (1) providing formal Notice to all Proper Parties and all other recipients of this NOTICE; (2) satisfying the legal requirements imposed by the Federal criminal statute at 18 U.S.C. section 4;  and, (3) establishing probable cause calling for the conclusion that the suspects named infra are engaged in a pattern of racketeering activities in violation of the Federal criminal statute at 18 U.S.C. 1962(d) (conspiracy to engage in a pattern of racketeering activity).


In the interests of expediting access to all relevant and admissible documentation, Interpleader hereby notifies all concerned of a single, consolidated electronic database which now contains evidence of missing and/or defective credentials for past and present Federal Court personnel employed by the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon.  In particular, see all “NAD” links infra:

FATAL DEFECTS CONFIRMED IN OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT

STANDARD FORM 61 (“SF-61”) APPOINTMENT AFFIDAVITS

Relator now confirms that the Office of Personnel Management (“OPM”) never requested nor obtained formal review and approval by the Office of Management and Budget (“OMB”) of three (3) distinct changes that are plainly evident on the OPM SF-61 APPOINTMENT AFFIDAVITS now in widespread use, after being made available in electronic form at OPM’s Internet website, to wit:

(1)     there is no OMB control number at the upper right-hand corner;

(2)     there is no paragraph at the bottom citing 5 U.S.C. 2903;  and,

(3)     the use of an electronic form in lieu of a hard-copy form.

Proper requests submitted under the Freedom of Information Act at 5 U.S.C. 552 (“FOIA”) specifically sought documentary evidence that OPM has duly complied with the published Regulations implementing the Paperwork Reduction Act (“PRA”).

On August 6, 2012, OPM replied as follows:

... [W]e do not have any responsive records here at OPM.

And, on August 23, 2012, OMB replied as follows:

After careful review of your request, we conducted a search of OMB’s files and did not identify any records or documents that are responsive to your request.


Accordingly, pursuant to the legislative intent of the PRA, Relator has every right to enforce that Act by concluding that any and all OPM SF-61 APPOINTMENT AFFIDAVITS which were never reviewed and timely approved by OMB, as required by published Regulations implementing the PRA, are necessarily “bootleg requests” belonging in the nearest trash can.

In other words, they are counterfeits!

Furthermore, the failure to produce any evidence of any duly executed OPM SF-61 APPOINTMENT AFFIDAVITS has very far-reaching criminal consequences for all Federal employees who are similarly situated.  See e.g. 18 U.S.C. §§ 912, 1341, 1951 and 1961 et seq.

In particular, concerning the consequences for Federal personnel who are claiming to be duly appointed to preside on a Federal Court, Interpleader attaches a list of authorities concerning such personnel, and incorporates same by reference, as if set forth fully here.

Those authorities make it very clear that, without taking all required Oaths, one cannot become a judge either de jure or de facto, such an individual is without authority to act, and all his acts as such are void until he has taken the prescribed oath:

Without taking the oath prescribed by law, one cannot become a judge either de jure or de facto, and such an individual is without authority to act and his acts as such are void until he has taken the prescribed oath.

[French v. State, 572 S.W.2d 934]

[Brown v. State, 238 S.W.2d 787]

 

The Office of Attorney General also issued a long-standing legal Opinion consistent with the statute at 5 U.S.C. 5507.  Said Opinion reiterated that the required Oath was a mandatory prerequisite to exercising a judge’s duties and to receiving compensation as a judge:


... [B]ut whatever form of oath is taken, the taking of the oath is a prerequisite to the entering upon the official duties or drawing salary therefor.

[19 Op Atty Gen 221]

 

For reasons including but not limited to those discussed above, Relator hereby formally invokes the PRA’s Public Protection Clause at 44 U.S.C. 3512(b):

(b)  The protection provided by this section may be raised in the form of a complete defense, bar, or otherwise at any time during the agency administrative process or judicial action applicable thereto.

 

5 U.S.C. 2903:  AUTHORITY TO ADMINISTER

Interpleader also wishes to draw attention to the existence, and legal implications, of the Federal statute at 5 U.S.C. 2903.

As explained above, the absence of any citation to that statute is one of the reasons why OPM’s electronic version of SF-61 violates the PRA and its implementing Regulations.

It is also one of the reasons why Relator asserts a right to inspect all SF-61 APPOINTMENT AFFIDAVITS for proper compliance with the stated requirements of that particular statute.

It can happen that Federal judicial personnel have executed what appears to them to be a complete set of proper credentials.

However, if the individual who administered SF-61 lacks one or more of the credentials required of that individual, it necessarily follows that 2903 has been violated.

Let us consider one example, in order to drive this point home:  consider a single SF-61 which appears to have been administered by a County Dog Catcher.  Interpleader does not intend to demean that local government position: dog catchers perform a very important public safety service.


Nevertheless, the issue is whether or not a County Dog Catcher is authorized by law to administer OPM SF-61 APPOINTMENT AFFIDAVITS.

There are three (3) subsections at 5 U.S.C. 2903.  Interpleader wishes to supplement the analysis above with particular emphasis on subsection 2903(a), to wit:

(a)                The oath of office required by section 3331 of this title may be administered by an individual authorized by the laws of the United States or local law to administer oaths in the State, District, or territory or possession of the United States where the oath is administered.

 

[underlined emphasis added]

 

If someone desires to know which individuals are so authorized by the laws of the United States (Federal government), it is necessary to do much additional research in order to locate each such law, and in order to determine from each such law which individual(s) have been authorized to administer OPM SF-61 APPOINTMENT AFFIDAVITS, and which have not been so authorized.

The latter is the situation facing any private Citizen who wishes to determine the authenticity of any SF-61.

When a private Citizen is confronted with an SF-61 from which all references to the statute at 5 U.S.C. 2903 have been removed, a not so subtle fraud has been inflicted on that Citizen by failing to disclose what should have been disclosed.

Here, cf. “Fraud” in Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition.

A County Dog Catcher’s signature could appear there;  and, without the additional knowledge which notice of this statute provides, the Citizen is thereby deprived of information necessary to perform a reasonable inspection of such a document, and to make a reasonable determination of its legality and authenticity.

Such is the PRA’s legislative intent!


Relator here argues that the citation to 5 U.S.C. 2903 should not only be a mandatory requirement on all blank SF-61 APPOINTMENT AFFIDAVITS duly approved by OMB.

In the spirits of timely notice, full disclosure, and full compliance with the PRA, future revisions of OPM SF-61 should also be enhanced with at least one additional line on which the individual administering that form is required to cite the exact law of the United States or local law which confers upon that individual authority to administer that form.

The latter is really not too much to ask, in light of the obvious vagueness which Interpleader has already documented at 5 U.S.C. 2903(a), in light of the published Regulations which implement the PRA, and in light of the PRA’s legislative intent.

Those implementing Regulations expressly mandate opportunities for public comments whenever an OMB control number is up for mandatory renewal every three (3) years.  Again, see 5 U.S.C. 5507 (“officer ... may not be paid until the [valid SF-61] affidavit has been filed”).

In fact, those implementing Regulations also authorize any person to request OMB review of any collection of information conducted by or for any Federal government agency, as follows:

Any person may request OMB to review any collection of information conducted by or for any agency to determine if, under this Act and this part, a person shall maintain, provide, or disclose the information to or for the agency.  Unless the request is frivolous, OMB shall, in coordination with the agency responsible for the collection of information:

 

(1)     Respond to the request within 60 days after receiving the request, unless such period is extended by OMB to a specified date and the person making the request is given notice of such extension;  and,

 

(2)     Take appropriate remedial action, if necessary.  5 CFR 1320.14(c)

Authorities in re: Presidential Commissions

 

 

When person has been nominated to office by President, confirmed by Senate, and his commission signed by President, with seal of United States affixed thereto, his appointment is complete.

 

[U.S. v. LeBaron, 60 U.S. 73, 19 How. 73]

[15 L.Ed. 525 (1856), bold emphasis added]

 

 

The commissions of judicial officers ... appointed by the President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate ... shall be made out and recorded in the Department of Justice under the seal of that department and countersigned by the Attorney General.

[5 U.S.C. 2902(c), bold emphasis added]

 

 

Federal circuit and district judges are among the “other officers of the United States” required to be nominated by the President by and with the advice and consent of the Senate.

 

[Thomson v. Robb, 328 S.E.2d 136, 140, hn. 3]

[229 Va. 233 (Va. 1985)]

 

 

From this clause [2:2:2] the Constitution must be understood to declare that all offices of the United States, except in cases where the Constitution itself may otherwise provide, shall be established by law.

 

[U.S. v. Maurice, 2 Brock, U.S., 96]

[26 Fed. Cas. No. 15,747]

 

 

... [W]here the law requires a commission to be issued, the person selected is not entitled to the office until the commission issues, and he cannot be legally qualified by taking the required oath until he has received his commission.

 

[Legerton v. Chambers, 163 P. 678, 32 Cal.App. 601]

[Magruder v. Tuck, 25 Md. 217]

[bold emphasis added]

 

The commission is in law prima facie proof of the right of the judge to enter on and perform the duties of his office.

 

[State v. Montague, 130 S.E. 838, 190 N.C. 841]

[Sylvia Lake Co. v. Northern Ore Co., 151 N.E. 158]

[242 N.Y. 144, cert. den. 273 U.S. 695]

 

It [commission] is the highest and best evidence of his right to the office until, on quo warranto or a proceeding of that nature, is annulled by judicial determination.

 

[Thompson v. Holt, 52 Ala. 491]

[bold emphasis added]

 

 

Without taking the oath prescribed by law, one cannot become a judge either de jure or de facto, and such an individual is without authority to act and his acts as such are void until he has taken the prescribed oath.

 

[French v. State, 572 S.W.2d 934]

[Brown v. State, 238 S.W.2d 787]

 

 

Law requires the judge selected to take an oath of office.

 

[U.S. ex rel. Scott v. Babb]

[199 F.2d 804 (7th Cir. 1952)]

 

 

Appointment was complete upon taking oath.

 

[Glavey v. U.S., 182 U.S. 595 (1901)]

 

 

Judges are required to take oaths.

[7 Op Atty Gen 303]

 

 

Oath was prerequisite to compensation of judges.

 

[7 Op Atty Gen 303]

 

 

The salaries of all judges of courts of the United States are due from the date of appointment;  but the party does not become entitled to draw pay until he has entered on the duties of his office, or at least taken his official oath;  for, until then, though under commission, he is not actually in office;  and in some cases, as that of the territorial judges of Oregon, Washington, Kansas, and Nebraska, salary, though due from date of appointment, cannot be drawn until the judge enters on duty in the Territory.

[7 Op Atty Gen 303 supra]

 

 

Oath was prerequisite to official duties and salary.

 

[19 Op Atty Gen 219]


 

SALARY OF MINISTER

 

By act of July 11, 1888, chapter 614, the office of chargé d’affaires to Paraguay and Uruguay, the salary of which was $5,000 per annum, was abolished, and provision made for representing the United States there by a minister at $7,500 a year.  B., who at that time held the former office, was on the 11th of August, 1888, appointed minister.  He received his commission at his place of duty on the 3d of October, 1888, and on that latter date took the official oath and entered upon the duties of his office as minister:  Advised that B. is entitled to draw his salary as minister from the 3d of October, 1888, the date on which he qualified for the office and entered upon its duties, and not from the date of his appointment (Aug. 11, 1888).

 

[19 Op Atty Gen 219 supra]

 

 

... [B]ut whatever form of oath is taken, the taking of the oath is a prerequisite to the entering upon the official duties or drawing salary therefor.

 

[19 Op Atty Gen 221 supra]
