RE: Leboeuf, Lamb, Leiby & MacRae Employment Inquiry - Homicide/Violence Risk
Dear Mr. Cummings:
I am writing to assure the law firm of Leboeuf, Lamb, Leiby & MacRae that at the time of my employment inquiry in 1985, to which Hiring Partner Austin P. Olney, Esq. responded by letter dated March 5, 1985 (copy attached), I did not intentionally withhold any facts pertinent to my current mental illness: an apparently rare form of paranoid schizophrenia--a debilitating psychotic disorder--that has left my intellectual functioning intact even as the illness worsens in severity, and which disorder cannot be detected on comprehensive psychological testing as performed by a major medical center (The George Washington University Medical Center).
As a courtesy to Leboeuf, Lamb, Leiby & MacRae I forward (on the enclosed computer disc) two pleadings that I filed in the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, in a currently pending appeal, that will satisfy any questions you or your partners may have concerning the risk of violence (including armed violence and homicide) to which I unintentionally subjected your firm. The disc also contains a document pertinent to a criminal investigation instituted by the Federal Protective Service (Jerry McGill, S.A.), ancillary to concerns, affirmed as genuine by the Government of the District of Columbia, relating to a reported risk of violence (including homicide) that I posed at the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, my former employer.
I know that you are a nationally-recognized expert in employment discrimination law. You may have an academic interest in precisely how an individual diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, a disabling psychotic mental disorder, might go about applying the law of employment discrimination to the facts relating to a job termination.
Supervisory Special Agent David M. Bowie at the Washington Field Office of the FBI is familiar with this matter. The telephone number of the FBI Washington Field Office is 252-7801.
