Dear Mr. Freedman:

Thank you for submitting your resume to the American Civil Liberties Union of the National Capital Area.  We are a very small office, with a staff of four, and, at this time, there are no job openings available.

Your resume is most impressive, and we wish you success in your job search.

With best regards,


Mary Jane DeFrank
Executive Director

RE: Employment Opportunities - ACLU

Dear Mr. Plotkin:

I am an attorney, and am licensed to practice in Pennsylvania.

I am writing to inquire about present and anticipated employment opportunities for lawyers at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), as well as any information pertinent to the specific hiring procedures of the ACLU. Any information you can provide will be useful to me.

The enclosed letter dated December 16, 1997 addressed to District of Columbia Deputy Corporation Counsel, Charles L. Reischel, Esq. will serve to discharge my duty of care to the ACLU, in the event of my future employment with the ACLU, arising out of concerns relating to my mental health and stability (including the risk of violence): concerns placed at issue by the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, my former employer, and affirmed as genuine and nonpretextual by the District of Columbia Office of Corporation Counsel.

Enclosed for your information is a computer disc (IBM format) that contains the pleadings I filed in the D.C. Court of Appeals in the currently pending appeal referenced in the letter addressed to Mr. Reischel.

Incidentally, supervisory special agent David M. Bowie, FBI Washington Metropolitan Area Field Office, is familiar with this matter, and may be able to respond to any concerns about my reported risk of violence. The telephone number of the FBI Washington field office is (202) 252 7801.

I look forward to hearing from you.
