Good Morning, Pete, I'll have to remember that, By the way, you have to repeat that three times every night before you go to bed and three times in the morning, as soon as you wake up :)
How often does this work ?
Good question. If they are a fair and even handed group, they should grant your Petition and I do not see any reason why they should not grant your Petition,
There is something called "Judicial Notice" which means that certain things are taken as true without the necessity of proof or the submission of evidence. For example, years ago the US Postal Service delivered a letter on the day after it was mailed, and proof of receipt did not have to be shown. Unfortunately, the mail is no longer delivered the day following the date of mailing, but a litigant can still ask the Judge to "take Judicial Notice" that the letter he mailed on Monday was delivered to the addressee on Tuesday.
Actually, you can use part of that in your Petition and say something like this,
"Years ago, the US Postal System was more efficient than it is today."
"Because the US Postal System was efficient, it was presumed that a letter was received the day following the day of mailing."
"In recognition of delivery of a letter on the day following the day of mailing, the Courts took Judicial Notice of this fact."
"In today's world, the number of letters that are mailed has increased immeasurably."
"As a result of the aforesaid increase, many Courts recognize the reality that a letter is no longer delivered on the day following the day of mailing."
"In recognition of these realities, Courts no longer take Judicial Notice that a letter was delivered on the day following the day of mailing. and, in fact, in many instances the Court will require proof of mailing by way of a US Postal Receipt and will require proof of delivery by way of a Return Receipt signed by the Addressee."
Each of the above statements should be placed in a separately numbered paragraph in the Petition along with your other arguments,
