During a telephone conversation on 1 . 1/7/12, petitioner indicated that the claims against Candidate Romney are moot, but that he intends to proceed with his claims against President Obama. He intends to file an amended complaint and seek a new summons in the superior court. He will serve them on the president's home address in Chicago, and perhaps on an attorney who represents the president. It appears the petition for review, seeking review of an order related to service of his original complaint, may be moot. ON OR BEFORE 11/30/12, petitioner may file an explanation of why this case is not moot.

Pursuant to Alaska Rule of Appellate Procedure (ARAP) 504, Petitioner Thomas A. Lamb submits this Emergency Petition for Review of the October 17 th and 24 th , 2012 order denying the Petitioner's motion for reconsideration and to use Twitter as a method of service. Both orders are within the date set by ARAP 403 (a) (1) (a) for appellate review and the October 24 th, 2012 order is based on a response to the superior court denying the Petitioner's motion for reconsideration on October 17 th, 2012.
Statement of the Facts

FO AK T FB D IV
I.

The 2012 Presidential election will be held on November 6 th , 2012 and Alaskans

have been subjected to political ads and public figures making accusations about the

presidential candidates and the various media outlets are reporting on the accusations as

fact or discounting certain accusations by claiming the accusations to be false when there is no concrete evidence to back up the claims being made and reported on.

Time is important and this motion and its accompanying petition require an On October 26 th , 2012, to fulfill ARAP 504 (f) the Respondent called the

immediate ruling.

Respondent Barack Obama's headquarters at 312 .698-3670 to notify that the Petitioner

was filing a petition of review on Monday, October 29 th, 2012. The Petitioner informed

the staffer that there has been no response to the documents sent to the campaign

headquarters, the staffer for Respondent Barack Obama said that if the documents were

sent to the campaign headquarters by certified mail, the documents would be sent to the appropriate people.

The Petitioner made numerous calls to the Respondent's headquarters at 857-288-

3500 to notify them that an emergency petition of review was being submitted on

Monday, October 29, 2012. Unfortunately no contact has been made via the telephone. The Petitioner then on Sunday October 28 th , 2012 notified the Respondent Mitt Romney via his campaign website messaging system that the Petitioner was filing an emergency petition for review.

2

The October 17 111 and October 24 th superior court order is having a procrustean effect in that irreparable and immediate harm is being placed on the public in their endeavor to make an informed decision when they vote for the presidential candidates. Accordingly, ARAP 504 states an emergency motion is appropriate "to avoid irreparable harm, relief is needed in less time than normally would be required for the court to receive and consider a response." And "it clearly appears from the facts ... that immediate and irreparable injury, loss or damage would result."

FO AK T FB D IV
As of today's filing, the Petitioner has never been contacted by the Respondent's attorney's thought out the motion practice in the superior court. Thus no contact information in this motion has been provided by the Respondent. It must be noted that the time line will not allow the Petitioner to notify the Respondents on this motion via certified mail. The only method of serving the Respondents is to send the motion and petition via the Respondents' Twitter accounts. The Petitioner respectfully requests a decision to be determined by this Court. Since the presidential election is November 6111, 2012, time would be needed to allow the Respondent's to produce the requested records and let the public digest what is in the records so they can make an informed decision when they vote. Respectfully submitted on October 29th, 2012.
