I , Christopher-Earl Strunk in esse declare under penalty of perjury with


28 USC s1746:

1. That Declarant is the Appellant herein appeal case IO-5082-cv and is

self-represented without being an attorney.

2. This declaration is in support of the emergency motion for an expedited

appeal as time is of the essence with imminent irreparable harm in the

conduct of the 2010 Census under color of 13 USC §141,13 USC SI95 and

related law for the 2 USC §2a allotment of U.S. House of Representative

seats to each State of the several States by the deadline in December 2010.

3. That the Court has afforded Dectarant until May 17,2010 to make

procedural motions in regards to this appeal and that Appellant understands

that the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit

has approved a procedure that allows qualifying appeals to be placed in a

"stand-by pool" of cases. This case will be used to fill gaps in the argument

calendar caused when calendared cases are terminated prior to oral

argument. Placement in the pool wilt not result in delay of your appeal and

may result in significant expedition. To qualify for inclusion in this pool the

Case: 10-5082 Document: 1245652 Filed: 05/18/2010 Page: 5

following conditions must be met within 30 (thirty) days of docketing:

(1) All parties must stipulate that they do not object to

inclusion in the stand-by pool (see form attached)

(2) All parties must stipulate to a briefing schedule on the form

provided. The parties should be aware that the chances of

expedition are increased to the extent they agree to

shorter briefing periods.

(3) All parties must stipulate that they will not file any

dispositive motions.

4. If these conditions are met, the case, if othefwise appropriate, will be

placed in the first available gap in the calendar. Counsel is assured at least

three weeks notice prior to scheduling. If counsel is unavailable for the

selected date, the case will be placed on a normal nonexpedited track. If no

gap emerges, every effort wift be made to calendar the case so that
consideration is not detayed.

5. That Declarant requests oral argument as this case is appropriate for

oral argument and even though the Court will not ordinarily include in the

"stand-by pool" cases that are inappropriate for oral argument, see D.C. Cir.

Rule 34(j),or cases that require special internal management pursuant to

this Court's Civil Appeals Management Plan.

1997, 111 Stat. 2480:

(b) Any person aggrieved by the use of any statistical method in violation of
the Constitution or any provision of law (other than this Act), in connection with the

obtain declaratory, injunctive, and any other appropriate relief against the
use of such method.
(c) For purposes of this section-
(1) the use of any statistical method as part of a dress rehearsal or other simulation
of a census in preparation for the use of such method, in a decennial census, to
determine the poputation for purposes of the apportionment or redistricting of
Members in Congress shall be considered the use of such method
in connection with that census; and (2) the report ordered by title Vlll of Public Law
105-18 and the Census 2000 Operational Plan shall be deemed to constitute final
agency action regarding the use of statistical methods in the 2000 decennial
census, thus making the question of their use in such census sufficiently concrete
and finat to now be reviewable in a judicial proceeding.
(d) For purposes of this section, an aggrieved person (described in
subsection (b)) includes-
(1) any resident of a State whose congressional representation or district could be
changed as a result of the use of a statistical method chaHenged in the civil action;
(2) any Representative or Senator in Congress; and (3) either House of Congress.
@)(I)Any action brought under this section shalt be heard and determined
by a district court of three judges in accordance with section 2284 of title 28,
United States Code. The chief judge of the United States court of appeals for each
circuit shall, to the extent practicable and consistent with the avoidance of
unnecessary delay, consolidate, for all purposes, in one district court within that
circuit, all actions pending in that circuit under this section. Any party to an action
under this section shall be precluded from seeking any consolidation of that action
other than is provided in this paragraph. In selecting the district court in which to
consolidate such actions, the chief judge shall consider the convenience of the
parties and witnesses and efficient conduct of such actions. Any final order or
injunction of a United States district court that is issued pursuant to an action
brought under this section shalt be reviewable by appeal

directly to the Supreme Court of the United States. Any such appeal shall be taken
by a notice of appeal filed within 10 days after such order is entered; and the

under this section and the Supreme Court of the United States to advance on the
docket and to expedite to the greatest possible extent the disposition of any such
matter.

time as the essence with irreparable harm in that the court made an error

10 million persons then increased to say 19 million persons but was reduce

by December 2010 as a compelling state matter of interest with the 9 t h and

loth with the 14" Amendment related taw; and Declarant will expedite to the

SCOTUS accordingly hereafter if necessary needs sufficient time.

11. That Appellant has no other avenue to seek relief except herein

and is entitled to an expedited schedule in order that the case either may be

rapidly remanded or heard de novo here in that this court does have a three

judge panel that was unreasonably denied below at district as time is of the
essence with imminent irreparable harm will result without the relief

requested, which is that eighty pfus years after 2 USC 32a was passed to

rebatance the house seats after 20 years of outrageous neglect the US

House has been transformed into a chamber of tyrannical reign with

impunity and without the consent of the people by a Constitutional

amendment for 2 USC 52a; representation was devised and guaranteed in

the Ratio IHouse member per 30,000 persons now is outrageously in most

States 1 House Member per more than 630,000 persons and that when

combined with outrageous gerrymandering of such allotment at the State

level results in the guarantee of the permanent reign of a House member for

life terms ii?that the individiiaf voter has no reasonable expectation of

success 8r participation in the e k t i o i i or ckallengs of inciimbent

sleeping with a dead person, chifdren of the same sex or outrageous acts of

bribery and infamy.

12. That Declarant demands that New York with a significant larger

population each ten years since 1940 is entitted to at feast to maintain the

same House seats as in 1940 and accordingly that the entire House be

ordered enlarged in proportion tu the population as intended by the US.

Constitution Article I Section 2 as well as the 14fhAmendment that is


thereafter to protect; and that the 2 USC 52a rebatancing formula devised

from the I912 allotment be declared unconstitutional and or limited in use

based upon no State losing representation without a proportional reduction

in population accordingly as is the intent of the Constitution.

13. And for such other and further relief as the court may deem just

and proper.
