RE:FDIC v. Sweeney

Dear General Reno:

Attached is a letter I sent to U.S. Marshal Nancy McGillivray, Boston, this date, which sets forth the salient reasons why the current purported orders to evict the Sweeneys in Hamilton, Massachusetts are illegal.

The Sweeneys won a $4 million judgment against ComFed Savings Bank in Middlesex State Court and were deprived of that judgment by collusion and fraud. We now have ample proof, much of which was not available before, and none of the bases for which has ever been reviewed by any court.

The Sweeneys made two substantial offers to resolve the FDIC's claim for payment of the mortgage note in the past month. Despite the fact that FDIC Chairman Andrew Hove has publicly admitted that the money offered by the Sweeneys' to pay the judgment was enough, but the other terms" (the terms of mutual releases) were the issue, the FDIC refuses to speak with me to resolve these issues and simply says it is "going to enforce its (illegal) orders."

Your office, and the U.S. Marshals, are prohibited by law from enforcing the orders of eviction. The law relevant to this is attached.

This stands to be yet another scandal for the current administration if someone doesn't get their head out of the sand and resolve this situation immediately. I have written to your office at least once a week for the past month. The only response I have received has been from Monty Wilkinson, who is apparently diverting my communications to you and sending them to Donald Stern, the U.S. Attorney in Massachusetts.

I also strongly object to this unlawful interception of my mail (see 18 U.S.C. 2510, et. seq.). I request an immediate response from you.

Very truly yours,


Linda Thompson
