    Seeking records of Elisabeth McKay vs United States of America

    William Weeks Newbie

      I am seeking all court records from a case held in the US Court Eastern District in Philadelphia for a case that ran from 1973 to 1975: Elisabeth McKay vs United States of America 73 - cv-0394.  This involved a suit filed for against US Government (FAA) for a plane crash that occurred in 1970. I have only the Docket (one page) from the Records Clerk at the Courthouse.
