RE: Complaint against attorney Mark C. Hardee
Greetings Shannon Howshar:
Thank you for your letter of May 7, 2014.
Please know and understand that FDC SeaTac is
requiring me to use my given name on all outgoing
U.S. Mail; however, I did change my name in 1996
to Paul Andrew Mitchell, B.A., M.S. Here, see
Doe v. Dunning, 87 Wn.2d 50, 549 P.2d 1 (1976)
(decision by the Washington State Supreme Court
re: common-law right to choose any name one sees fit).
In addition to all prior supplements I have mailed
to your office to date concerning Mr. Mark C. Hardee,
I wish hereby further to supplement my complaint
against Mr. Hardee with the following standing
authorities listed in the case law under 28 U.S.C. 1654:
U.S. v. Coupez, 603 F.2d 1347 (9th Cir. 1979)
(re: meaningful technical assistance given to
pro se litigant by "stand-by" counsel)
Russell v. U.S., 308 F.2d 78 (9th Cir. 1962)
(re: proceeding "In Propria Persona")
Rosenberg v. U.S., 346 U.S. 273 (1953)
(re: appearance of a third person as the "next friend"
of a prisoner who is isolated from counsel,
or who is incapacitated)
Source: 28 U.S.C.S. 1654 (LexisNexis edition)
In point of law, venue is proper within the
Western District of Washington State in my case,
NOT Wyoming, because I have lived and worked
exclusively in Seattle, Washington, since 6/18/2009.
Here, see FRCrP Rule 18, in particular.
As such, standing decisions of the Washington State
Supreme Court, and of the U.S. Court of Appeals
for the Ninth Circuit, are applicable to my domicile
as a Citizen of Washington State, who is NOT also a
federal citizen by Right of Election.
Federal citizenship is defined as such in Black's Law
Dictionary, Sixth Edition. See also Pannill v. Roanoke
(federal citizens were not even contemplated when
the organic U.S. Constitution was first being drafted).
Thank you very much for your consideration.
/s/ Paul Andrew Mitchell
Paul Andrew Mitchell, B.A., M.S. (chosen name)
Citizen of Washington State, 1:2:2, 1:3:3, 2:1:5, 3:2:1, 4:2:1
