Subject: SUMMONS for Prof. Donald D. Hoffman, U.C.I.

Mitchell v. AOL Time Warner, Inc. et al.

DCUS Sacramento #CIV. S-01-1480 WBS DAD PS


Dear Mr. Ortiz:


We have been unable to locate the original SUMMONS IN A CIVIL CASE for Professor Donald D. Hoffman in the Department of Cognitive Sciences at the University of California, Irvine.


Can you please check your records to determine if it was properly served on Prof. Hoffman, or if you still have this SUMMONS?


Our records indicate that your company did make one attempt to serve Prof. Hoffman.


If you did, in fact, serve Prof. Hoffman, then we need to obtain a RETURN OF SERVICE from you.


If you did not serve Prof. Hoffman and you cannot locate the original SUMMONS, then we will need to obtain another SUMMONS from the Clerk of Court and then serve Prof. Hoffman without further delays.


Please confirm one way or the other in writing to the address of our Forwarding Agent shown below.


Thank you very much for your professional services in the past and for your prompt assistance again.



Sincerely yours,





Paul Andrew Mitchell, B.A., M.S.

Private Attorney General
