Dear Senator Hatch:
Enclosed are copies of two letters that I have submitted to members of the federal judiciary in regard to my possible future application for a judicial clerkship.
This will assure Senator Hatch, in his capacity as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, that I will cooperate fully in any FBI background check that any federal court deems necessary in the wake of the determination made by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals on September 1, 1998 that my former employer (the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld) terminated my employment in October 1991 on the basis of genuine concerns about my mental health and stability, including the potential for violence. See Freedman v. D.C. Department of Human Rights, No. 96-CV-961 (Memorandum Opinion and Judgment filed Sept. 1, 1998).
FBI Supervisory Special Agent Jerome O. Campane (Washington Field Office) is familiar with this matter.
