I am writing you today concerning the GM/Delphi spin-off and subsequent bankruptcy of Delphi. My agency has been investigating the circumstances surrounding the 1999 GM/Delphi spin-off since 1997 when rumors of the separation of the parts division from GM were brought to our attention by GM employees concerned about their future. (See Judge Gerber's material included with this mailing for more information.)
With the publishing of the 1998 Delphi Prospectus it became apparent to me that Delphi would not be a separate stand-alone company. Gm would still control the board and its common stock thusly it was not eligible to sell stock or bankrupt on its own . (See copies of pages of the 1998 Delphi Prospectus included)
In regards to stock I personally am aware of Delphi employees who largely invested in Delphi stock at the urging of UAW President Stephen Yokich. Many ended up losing their retirement money and now their pensions are at the mercy of the PBGC.
Morrie W. Henry, one of these employees, has asked me to send you some information concerning his endeavors over the years to rectify this situation. You will find these papers included with this mailing.
Not only are the Delphi employees' pension coming from the PBGC but a group of salaried employees who never worked for Delphi but were employed by GM and American Axle found their GM pension had been switched to Delphi and are now also receiving their pensions from the PBGC. Rita Ertman, one of these retirees, has been working since 2003 to rectify this injustice on the part of GM. Several of her letters and other information are following this letter.
Judge Drain, due to the importance of our information , the proofs that we have found and the years that my agency has been trying to bring this information into the open only to be covered up by agencies at all levels, it is time that this fraudulent behavior on the part of GM/Delphi be brought to light. I am requesting that you read all of this information and act on it
Thank you for your help.

Judge Robert E. Gerber,
My name is Patricia Meyer and I have a claim against Motors Liquidation, Case No. 09-50026(REG). My claim number is 15927. There has been some confusion about my claim and I would appreciate your help in clearing up this issue. I entered a claim against Motors Liquidation due to tax evasion and no monetary amount was put on the claim. I then received a letter stating that I needed to add a money amount. I sent the paper work back with $500,000 as the money amount to be added to the original claim. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the amount on 15927 was still zero and I had been assigned another claim number to which the $500,000 was attached now leaving me with two claims where there was really only one.
After talking with Attorney Smolinsky's office I was recently notified that the two claims had been resolved once again into one claim under the original claim number 15927. When I looked up my claim in the Omnibus Objections booklet I was sent I see that I am once again listed as having no monetary listing. Since I was told that a monetary amount must be included I would like this error to be corrected to read $500,00 as was previously stated.
I am also need full disclosure from the GM attorneys about what is happening with my case sent to me as I do not have access to the internet. This information may be sent to the address listed above.
