If you are suing the United States Government
The Federal Rules say that when you sue the U.S. government, you will need to serve summonses on three separate parties. They are: 1. 2. 3. The head of the agency you are suing The United States Attorney in Kansas The United States Attorney General in Washington, D.C.
Even if you are suing a local government agency, you need to serve that office's headquarters, usually in Washington, D.C. For example, if you were injured at a local Post Office, you would actually serve the Postmaster General in Washington, not the local Post Office. In social security cases, the Regional Chief Counsel in Kansas City is served instead of the Commissioner. Your summonses should be directed to: Office of the Attorney General Department of Justice 10th & Pennsylvania Ave., N.W.
