New York, NY asked in Civil Litigation and Civil Rights for Rhode Island

Q: Do I have legal recourse, monetary claim against state agency?

My stupid led to a night in the ACI. I was wearing jewelry approximate retail value of about $30k. This occurred back in 2011 I was shocked that their procedure was to take all my jewelry and belongings put it into 8 by 11 mailer and mail it out with no tracking what so ever: fyi they do now. They gave me no option to have it picked up. I live in a very rural area, I cannot get shipment sometimes because my address is not recognized by most USPS systems. The jewelry parcel never made it to my house the AC I insisted they sent it out I filled out my address on to it and it went supposedly into a box to be picked up by the postman. I initiated investigations with the Postal Service, local postmaster and even contacted the ACI investigation Unit said to no avail: with no tracking the USPS couldn't do much. A month ago ,an officer who worked at committing at the time I was fired for theft of jewelry, other items. I now truly feel this was internal theft not postal mishandling.
