RP: Legalese gives me a headache OWL: to Umbridge
Date: 28 June 2006
Characters: Morag Dolohova (Macdougal), Dolores Umbridge
Location: the Morrigan, Umbridge's office
Warnings: Umbridge will not be happy
Summary: Morag serves Umbridge with legal papers.
Morag perused the parchment one last time, satisfying herself that it asked all the right sorts of questions. She had gone over the document Antonin had given her and then contacted the lawyers, asking for a few changes. They had just sent her the final request to look over.
They were asking her to document her claim to the Acting Minister position and to provide certified copies of all paperwork that related to said position, first and foremost. They were also asking her to prove that the questions she had included in her most recent 'questionnaire' were legal, reasonable, and customary for the British Wizarding Ministry to require. And, just to tie her up in endless paperwork, they were asking her to document her position with the Ministry for the past fourteen years.
Basically, they were demanding that she legally prove she was who she said she was, and was entitled, legally, and by custom of her office, to ask the questions she was asking and to require anyone to answer them.
Finally satisfied, she sealed the parchment and called for Nikita, asking him to serve the papers to Umbridge.
I received your questionnaire and forwarded it to our lawyers, as I do with all such correspondence. They responded with the following Request for Further Information which and have directed me to hold my own response to your questionnaire until such time as they feel their own questions have been satisfactorily answered.
I'm sure you will realize that it can only be in the Acting Minister's best interests to prove to one and all the legitimacy of a claim to that office, as I know it will also relieve the public's mind to know that the person in said office is deservedly there and representing their best interests as they enforce the laws that we have held so close for so many years.
Morag Macdougal, Dolohova
