On Wednesday June 27th, the latest allegation against convicted child molester Gerald “Jerry” Sandusky hit the Northern Virginia Civil Courts. A Pro Se Federal personal injury suit was filed by a man certifying himself as Jonathan Amendola. He requests a restraining order based on fear of imminent bodily injury, and that Uncle Joe- does not care and never has.
Jonathan Amendola, an alleged nephew of Jerry Sandusky’s defense attorney Joseph Amendola claims Jerry Sandusky touched his crotch, kissed his earlobe while he was urinating and subsequently threatened him in 1991 while traveling with the football team as a “PSU” fan.

The request for a restraining order reads, in pertinent part:
THE PLAINTIFF FACES IMMINENT DANGER AND BODILY HARM FROM THE DEFENDANT AND MOVES THIS HONORABLE COURT TO ISSUE AN ORDER FOR DEFENDANT JERRY SANDUSKY TO RESPOND. I’M THE NEPHEW OF ATTORNEY JOE AMENDOLA AND I’M IN DANGER BECAUSE JERRY SANDUSKY MOLESTED ME AND JOE AMENDOLA KNEW THIS BUT CONTINUED TO DE FEND JERRY ANYWAY FOR MONEY AND DISREGARDING MY PREVIOUS SEXUAL ABUSE FROMSANDUSKY.
IN 1991, I WAS A PENN ST. FAN ANDI TRAVELED WITH THE FOOTBALL TEAM TO WEST VIRGINIA TO PLAY THE MOUNTAINEERS, AND AT MOUNTAINEER STADIUM IN THE PUBLIC REST ROOM DEFENDANT TOUCHED ME ON MY CROTCH WHILE I WAS URINATING AND KISSED MY RIGHT EAR LOBE AND TOLD ME IF I TELL ANYONE HE IS GOING TO KILL ME. I HAVE BEEN SUFFERING EMOTIONAL DISTRESS SINCE AND I’M ESTRANGED FROM JOE AMENDOLA BECAUSE HE DOES NOT CARE FOR HIS FAMILY AND I’M SCARED SANDUSKY IS GOING TO ASSAULT ME,
I SEEK A RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST HIM.
As mysteriously as it appeared, Mr. Amendola faxed a request to withdraw the suit, and the motion was granted.
On June 28th, via fax, Jonathan Amendola filed to withdraw the suit, and it’s dismissal, which was granted by her Honor Judge Keeley.
v. CRIMINAL NO. 1:12CV107 (Judge Keeley)
GERALD ARTHUR SANDUSKY, Defendant.
ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO WITHDRAW SUIT [DKT. NO. 4]
On June 28, 2012, the pro se plaintiff, Jonathan Amendola (“Amendola”), moved to withdraw this lawsuit (dkt. no. 4). Pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(1)(A)(i), a plaintiff may dismiss an action without a court order by filing a notice of dismissal before the opposing party files an answer or a motion for summary judgment. Insofar as the defendant in this case has not yet appeared, the Court GRANTS Amendola’s motion (dkt. no. 4) and ORDERS that this case be DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE and STRICKEN from the docket of this Court.
It is so ORDERED.
The Court directs the Clerk of Court to mail a copy of this Order to the pro se plaintiff via certified mail, return receipt requested.
DATED: June 29, 2012

Now you see it, now you don’t. Uh, I mean, you still can. Without prejudice and stricken from the docket do make it invisible.
Early fireworks for the Independence Day Celebrations of the Amendola clan?
Or is this suit one of many pranks that appears to be filed by the same idiot who is not aware that receipt numbers for faxes and certified mail are tracked by the USPS and the FBI respectively?
If so, we will be sure to make his acquaintance in the near future facing Federal criminal charges.
