The Courts will be interested to know why it took you 15 years to find this unidentified piece of paper. In general people don't get relief for some perceived injustice when they have slept on their rights. Of course feel free to bang your head against the wall; I am sure you will find an attorney with nothing better to do than destroy a forest of trees somewhere, somehow.
