SAN DIEGO — An informer has filed suit against a presidential nominee, a national political party and various other officials for allegedly failing to pay him for a tip to the TV show The FBI's Most Wanted List and for others' comments supposedly made about the situation.
Alan W. Wolcott filed a complaint Sept. 8 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Democratic National Party, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Robert Mueller, Eric Holder, the United States Attorney General's Office and Does 1-25, alleging that they violated several acts such as the False Claim Act, Freedom of Information Act, Federal Tort Act, Federal Records Act and Patriot Act by acting on bad faith.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 15, 2007, he responded to a request made by the TV show The FBI's Most Wanted List by reporting to the FBI information regarding the smuggling of illegal aliens across the Mexican border. For his efforts, the plaintiff supposedly was to rewarded and an award of damages is expected by plaintiff in an amount of $72,647. A statement uttered by fDefendant Clinton on March 18, 2015, on MSNBC stated that "the immigration with Mexico is at zero" was a declaration substantially affecting the plaintiff's reputation, being the original source and prime mover to the discovery and conviction of a criminal act. The plaintiff holds Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Democratic National Party,the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Robert Mueller, Eric Holder, the United States Attorney General's Office and Does 1-25 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to award damages to the plaintiff and failed to adequately investigate and correct an erroneous statement.

He is represented by Laura E. Duffy of the Office of the United States Attorney in San Diego.
