SUPPLEMENTAL PLEADING TO
MOTION FOR JOINDER OF CLAIMS AGAINST LT. HUGH IRWIN,
FILED NOVMEBER 20, 1986
On November, 20, 1986 Thomas filed a Motion for Joinder of
Claims Against Lt. Hugh Irwin. That document is hereby incorporated by reference, and plaintiff William Thomas further states:
1. On or about November 19, 1986 a Judicial Summons was
issued against plaintiff by the Superior Court of the District of
2. That Summons was apparently issued upon a Complaint sworn
to by United States Park Police officer Kathy Lanata.
3. That Summons was apparently issued with the knowledge of
4. There never existed any basis in fact for the Complaint
upon which that Summons was issued. (See Declaration of Dr. James
L. Evans re November 10, 1986, attachment A hereto.)
5. On November 26, 1986 plaintiff responded to the D.C.
Superior Court, where he was informed that the charge had been
transferred to the Federal District Court.
6. Subsequently plaintiff responded to the Federal District
Court, where he was informed by Magistrate Dwyer that the charges
had been dropped.
7. Plaintiff's entire day was wasted.
Plaintiff suffered anxiety, inconvenience, loss of time, and
interference with his communicative activities as a direct result
of the issuance of the Judicial Summons against him.
Plaintiff alleges that the charge of assault was false.
Plaintiff alleges that the issuance of the Judicial Summons
was a malicious abuse of process.
Plaintiff hereby moves this Court to join Officer Lanata as a
defendant in this case for such financial relief as the Court might
deem sufficient to discourage her from bringing false charges,
and/or maliciously abusing process in violation of 42 USC 1983, to
the detriment of plaintiff or others in the future.
Further plaintiff moves to have a claim of malicious abuse of
process brought against Lt. Irwin in violation of 42 USC 1983,
1985, and 1986, and for the Court to order such financial recom-
pense as might be likely to cause Lt. Irwin to refrain from
engaging in "totalitarian police state tactics" with the intent or
effect of "stifling individual freedom and personal excellence."
