Act 132: I File a Complaint with the U.S. Court of Appeals

Much to my surprise, being turned down by the Michigan Supreme Court didn't mean that I had run out of options.

It turns out that the United States Court of Appeals has its own ethics rules and its own procedure for filing complaints against attorneys. The fact that I knew about this option at all was due solely to dumb luck. Back in early 2004, I had filed a complaint with the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, asking him to investigate Doug Sprinkle for perjury. (A long shot, I know.) The U.S. Attorney denied my request, but he suggested that I might "wish to register a complaint... with the Chief Judge of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, pursuant to Sixth Circuit Rule 46." So I did some research – and after I had exhausted my options with the State of Michigan, I took the U.S. Attorney up on his suggestion.

On August 27, 2004, I sent this complaint to the Clerk of the U.S. Court of Appeals.
