Subject:    SLS: IRC Liability Statutes, FOIA answer from IRS
References: <>

Hi Bill,

Always good to hear from you, once again!

I have a bunch more crucial FOIA requests,
which I will be happy to donate to the cause.

These go to credentials of all government
actors, regulations for specific criminal
statutes (e.g. 18 U.S.C. 3231), and lots
of other fun stuff (e.g. list of all actions
brought under color of Lloyd Bentsen's term
as Secretary of the Treasury).

The rub is 5 U.S.C. 552(a)(4)(B):
"district court of the United States"
"United States district court"

This distinction was upheld by a federal judge
in Arizona in the late spring of 1996 (in a 
grand jury case I was litigating).

See "Karma and the Federal Courts" in the
Supreme Law Library for details.  URL is:


Do you already have the Citizen's Guide to
the FOIA and Privacy Act?  This is essential
to anyone who is getting serious about FOIA.
Our version is an Exhibit in a Motion for
Clarification of the judge's ruling concerning
the proper forum for litigating FOIA requests.

I can attach it to an email message, if you need it.
Can you decode BinHex, MIME, or Uuencode?
Also, can you read original files written by
MS-WORD for DOS, Version 5.0B?  Lastly, can
you decompress files compressed by PKZIP?
I shoul do our standard file transfer test with
you:  takes only 2 minutes, and we learn a lot
about our respective systems.

rsvp asap

I am standing by.

/s/ Paul Mitchell
