The following link provides a list of symptoms of paranoid schizophrenia. I was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in February 1996 (at age 42) by Dimitrios Georgopoulos, M.D., at the George Washington University Medical Center Department of Psychiatry. The diagnosis was reaffirmed by Albert H. Taub, M.D., St. Elizabeths Hospital, in a letter written in 1999 under penalty of making false statements to a District of Columbia agency (The D.C. Board of Medicine).
I have no legal responsibility for the truth of my statements concerning my former employer, the D.C. law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, its partners or employees. My statements about Akin Gump, particularly those statements concerning violations by the firm of the D.C. Human Rights Act of 1977, the D.C. Mental Health Information Act of 1978, and statements concerning violations by the firm of District and federal criminal law, are the product of a severe and debilitating psychotic mental illness, first diagnosed by Gertrude R. Ticho, M.D., in consultation with Dennis M. Race, Esq. of the law firm of Akin Gump in late October 1991. See Freedman v. D.C. Department of Human Rights, D.C.C.A. no. 96-CV-961 (Sept. 1, 1998).
The D.C. Corporation Counsel (acting through Charles F.C. Ruff, Esq., Jo Anne Robinson, Esq., Charles L. Reischel, Esq., William J. Earl, Esq. and M. Justin Draycott, Esq.) took the position before the D.C. Superior Court in 1996 and again before the D.C. Court of Appeals in 1997 that my belief that Akin Gump's managers (a class of persons that included Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., Esq., Robert S. Strauss, Esq., Malcolm Lassman, Esq., Laurence J. Hoffman, Esq. and Richard L. Wyatt, Jr., Esq.) engaged in, or approved the commission of, criminal acts, specifically, approving the break-in of my residence in January 1990 and conspiring to solicit confidential mental health information in violation of the D.C. Mental Health Information Act of 1978 (from 1989 through 1991) -- acts that in their entirety might constitute the crime of racketeering under federal law -- is a product of the disorder "ideas of reference" diagnosed by Gertrude R. Ticho, M.D. in late October 1991. Brief of Appellee District of Columbia, Freedman v. D.C. Dept. Human Rights, D.C.C.A. no. 96-CV-961 (Sept. 1, 1998). Neither Strauss, Jordan, Wyatt, Race, Lassman, managing partner Hoffman nor any Akin Gump manager disputed the Corporation Counsel's position or questioned its legal or factual relevance.
