Re: SSN Law and schooling
- There is no such law; in fact, the *opposite* is true.
I have in my posession a document that clearly indicates it is unlawful for your school to
compell you to reveal your Strawman's SSN:
42 USC Sec. 408 provides that: "Whoever ... (8) discloses, uses, or compels the disclosure
of the social security number of any person in violation of the laws of the United States;
shall be guilty of a felony and upon conviction thereof shall be fined under title 18 or
imprisoned for not more than five years, or both."
18 USC §242 and 42 USC §1983 provides that: Whoever, under color of any law, statute,
ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, or
District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by
the Constitution or laws of the United States, ... shall be fined under this title or
imprisoned not more than one year, or both;" 42 USC §1983 further provides that a
violator "shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other
proper proceeding for redress."
Pretty potent stuff.
I would be happy to foward a pdf attachment to anyone who asks via "private" email ...
Have no fear.
