Ballard man hasn’t received mail in years, sues postal service

Nearly a decade ago, Ballard homeowner Randall Ehrlich says the postal service put him on “dog hold” because the carrier deemed his dog to be too threatening.

The dog died, but Ehrlich said the carrier didn’t resume delivering his mail. He now has a new dog, and he’s suing in federal court, according to a story by Q13 Fox.

“I’d rather not be doing this,” Ehrlich told Q13. “I’d rather just be getting my mail. And I’ve found no other recourse.”

In a statement, the USPS said the safety of its employees is paramount, but it would not comment on Ehrlich’s case due to pending litigation.
