Can I sue the post office for stopping mail delivery without authorization?
My mail was stopped without my authorization in July because my neighbor kept her two dogs in the front yard, we share a combined yard in a duplex. When I spoke to the postmaster and found this out, he explained the situation, I talked to my neighbor and since August the dogs have been located off the property. I have dogs, but that was not the issue as originally stated as they stay in the back yard, which is not connected to the front yard. Now I'm being told that since we have dogs and a backyard, mail will not be delivered because the mail carrier still fears for his safety, even though there has never been a reported incident and our dogs are never in the front yard where the mailbox is located. The issue was the neighbors dogs and once resolved they still refuse mail delivery. I am having to pay for a post office box now just to get mail.
