    Seeking District Court of DC case Hooper & Clark v Strauss

    Richard Hooper Newbie

      Sounds crazy but I filed a pro se lawsuit (Mandamus) in Federal District Court (Dallas) challenging the distribution of electors in the 1976.  Judge William Taylor sent the case to the US District Court in District of Columbia on a change of venue in 1975.  Plaintiffs: Richard L Hooper and Stephen R Clark.  Defendants: Robert Strauss, Chairman of National Democratic Party.  Could anyone help me find that case?  It was dismissed with prejudice.  The Court ruled allocation of delegates was among states not between states.
