Can I file in small claims court against the US Post Office?

Landisburg, PA |
Filed under: Lawsuits and disputes

I shipped silver bullion insured through USPS (not through ebay). They lost the package, I filed a claim with USPS and gave all the documentation they asked for and gave them my ebay item# which proved the value of the silver ($310 which it sold for) which it was insured for. After more than 40 days they sent me a letter and a check stating they only pay $15 on insurance claims for bullion. What's the best way to get my money back? This seems like a huge scam that USPS is making millions on!

  1. NO. Federal Govt has immunity from such a suit.

    I am not intending this to be legal advice, because I don't know the particulars of your situation. Call me if you would like to discuss this or other isues.
