Reference: Dr. Stephen Ostroff, Acting Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, Concession of Guilt under Uniform Commercial Code §1-205
Dear Attorney General Frosh:
On June 1, 2015, Dr. Stephen Ostroff, Acting Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), was served a “Constructive Notice”, pursuant to §§ 1-308 (remedy), and; 1-103 (recourse) under common law as codified by the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC).
FDA is a federal agency reporting to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that physically operates in and accordance with the laws of the State of Maryland. Violations of State of Maryland civil and criminal laws have directly harmed the complainant a citizen of the State of Maryland, the citizens of the State of Maryland and the United States.
The Constructive Notice served on Dr. Ostroff contained a sworn affidavit of truth that included 42 statements of fact and 26 exhibits of proof demonstrating that FDA engaged in violations of State of Maryland and federal civil and criminal laws that directly harmed the complainant, the citizens of the State of Maryland and the United States. A copy of the affidavit of truth presented to Dr. Ostroff for rebuttal and all supporting exhibits can be viewed and downloaded for your use on-line at http://jgpis.org
Dr. Ostroff was granted 45 days (15 more days than the 30 day limit codified under the law) in which to rebut the facts as presented to him in the affidavit. Dr. Ostroff chose not rebut any of the facts as presented to him thereby “defaulting” at 11:59 PM on June 21, 2015. Default having occurred, the facts as set forth in the Constructive Notice are now established as conclusive and dispositive facts in all subsequent matters of law in accordance with Uniform Commercial Code §1-205.
At this time and based on the now conclusive and dispositive facts under the law, we request that you open a formal inquiry into the facts and take appropriate sanctions against Dr. Ostroff and the FDA based on violations of civil and criminal laws of the State of Maryland based on Dr. Ostroff’s public concession of guilt in this matter.
To assist you further, please visit http://jgpis.org and click on the link, The Case of FoodQuestTQ, for a detailed report written at the request of the Federal Bureau of Investigation with all supporting exhibits detailing the actions of GMA and others involved in this matter.
For as yet unexplained reasons, all federal law enforcement agencies contacted in this matter have failed to act. They will be contacted in similar fashion advising them of Dr. Ostroff’s and FDA’s legal concession of guilt in this matter with a request to open similar inquiries based on federal violations of civil and criminal laws. We will provide you with these points of contact for coordination as soon as they become available to us.
If you wish to contact me for any reason please call at 240-439-4476 x-11. We stand ready to assist you in any and all ways possible. Thank-you for your efforts in protecting the rights of citizens by enforcing the laws of the State of Maryland.
