My case involving a needle injury
sustained at at a three star hotel was
dismissed by the federal judge with
prejudice on June 13, 2008. Is it
proper to write the judge a personal
letter and ask him to reconsider since
I have incurred medical expenses and
continues to test for infectious
diseases. The judge has dismissed my
life and apparently never allowed me
to present my story in my case.
are my options and timeframe to keep
the case current and is proper to write
a request to the judge and ask the
judge to reconsder.

Re: personal injury
No it is not. The Judge cannot and will not read your ex parte letter. It is not allowable under the judicial cannons.
If you feel you have been aggrieved by the Judgment of the Court, you should file an appeal immiately.
Re: personal injury
Writing the Judge will do nothing. You should have either asked for a new trial if that was allowable, or appealed his Judgment if a final Judgment. I do not know at what stage of your suit it was dismissed, but since it was "with prejudice", any attempt to re-file the same suit will result in an exception of res judicata. So, you need to appeal, and your Lawyer should know how and the time period for your situation.
