Ask the U. S. Supreme Court to hear 9/11 widow Ellen Mariani’s appeal….

Ellen Mariani, a 9/11 widow,  is seeking justice from the United States Supreme Court regarding her diminished status in the estate of her deceased husband, Louis Neil Mariani, a passenger on United Airlines, flight 175.  Ellen was never able to recover his remains.  See  

Ellen was wrongly shut out of her case and she is the last person who lost a family member on 9/11 who is still fighting to try to find justice through the courts.

“Every other person who lost a loved one on 9/11 either took the government hush money and agreed not to sue in court or else when they did try to litigate they were bullied, pressured and manipulated by the court into settling their case without a trial.  Not one of those cases has been allowed to go to trial.”

It has been Ellen’s pursuit of truth that has caused her the greatest problems in dealing with a scheme designed to quickly compensate claimants whose rights and opportunity to be heard in any court had to be waived in exchange for no-fault settlements, and loss of rights to ever sue anyone who was possibly liable.

While her rights have become extinct; the estate of her husband was settled over her strong objections.  More importantly, Ellen’s disclosure of judicial conflicts of interest with both the U. S. Judge of the Southern District of NY, and the probate court administrator of her husband’s estate, have caused both she and her lawyer to be threatened with sanctions. 

Ellen Mariani, however, has not given up and she has appealed to the US Supreme Court with a Petition For Writ Of Certiorari.  This may be the last hope that she has of ever receiving truth and justice in the United States court system.

Sign this petition to show solidarity with Ellen and to send a message that the US Supreme Court should hear Ellen’s case.


(To better understand the tight grip that Congress placed on victims and the corporate concerns over those of individuals; it is strongly recommended to study the structure of the Air Transportation Safety and System Stabilization Act (ATSSSA).)

Letter to
U. S. Supreme Court Justices United States Supreme Court
We the signed petitioners are in strong support of Ellen Mariani’s case
being presented for your determination of fairness and whether or not she deserves to know the truth regarding the events of 9/11/2001.
While the focus of this petition is Ellen Mariani; she is far from being alone in her strong desire for the truth.

In one way or the other, humanity has felt the negative impact of those events, and here at home our Constitution has become all but null and void, as have our rights as humans from our Creator.

It is our hope that you, the highest court in the land will show her mercy and compassion and help to bring closure to her long pursuit of justice.

Unequivocal truth is an absolute must in rendering justice, and if truth has become the enemy of national security; then it is for sure that our fate is doomed.
