Catherine O'Hagan Wolfe Clerk of the Court United States Court of Appeals Thurgood Marshall U.S. Courthouse 40 Foley Square New York, NY 10007 Re: Parent v State; Docket No. 11-2474 Dear Ms. Wolfe: This letter is in response to one dated September 19,2011 by ASG Laura Etlinger representing various state respondents in the above matter. In it, counsel proposes December 14,2011 as a deadline for filing respondent briefs. I respectfully oppose such a protracted period given the compelling circumstances of this appeal. I respectfully urge a date within 30 days. This is a case involving daily deprivations of parent-child contact and livelihood. It has been styled as a test case on behalf of similarly aggrieved parents based on widespread violations of human rights. In the lower court, the lead case was pending for more than two years until a ruling was made on the pleadings. At this rate the issues will be rendered moot by the passage of time. Beyond that, I am a pro se party who was derived of law and driving licenses due to events described in the same pleadings. Yet without a law office and resources, I was able to perfect this appeal, file motions for exigent and procedural relief, process the requisite record, joint appendix and rule submissions, all within a time frame which is exceeded by counsel's current request limited only to a response brief. The date is not sought in good faith but selected simply as the latest permissible deadline under the rules to delay or deny timely justice. Thank you for your consideration. Respectfully submitted

Leon Koziol, J.D. Appellant pro se
