Re: How to get the DOJ to move on a case
This why my opinion is to use the Fed F.O.I.A. Officer. It is this person's duty to insure the F.O.I.A. Act is complied with, but only if it is sent to them.
There is one more thing to take into account as most appear in the wrong jurisdiction.
What does the complaint say at the top? The People of (in sert state name here) v.s. Jane/Jon Doe? Is not this an issue between the State and one of the Citizens?
The Constitution of the United States, Article 3 Clause 1:
The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority;--to all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls;--to all Cases of admiralty and maritime Jurisdiction;--to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party;--to Controversies between two or more States;--between a State and Citizens of another State; (See Note 10)--between Citizens of different States, --between Citizens of the same State claiming Lands under Grants of different States, and between a State, or the Citizens thereof, and foreign States, Citizens or Subjects.
Note 10: This Clause has been affected by amendment XI
