RE: Social Security Disability Claim no. xxx xx xxxx
Dear Mr. Massanari:
Enclosed is a copy of the Memorandum Opinion and Judgment filed by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals on September 1, 1998 in Freedman v. D.C. Dept. of Human Rights, no. 96-CV-961.
The Court affirmed the determination made by the D.C. Department of Human Rights that there was no probable cause to believe that the action of my former employer, the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, in terminating my employment effective October 29, 1991 was based on anything other than valid business reasons, namely, that the employer had formed genuine concerns about my mental health and stability.
You may review this matter with the Honorable John A. Terry, a member of the appeals panel that heard the case. Judge Terry's telephone number at the Court is (202) 879-2780.
