Akin Gump: Did Joel Jankowsky Approve the Commission of a Felony? What Did the U.S. Marshal Say?

Joel Jankowsky is one of three senior executive partners of Akin Gump and as such serves ex officio as a member of all the firm's committees. Jankowsky represents numerous clients on a variety of public policy matters, with an emphasis on entertainment, telecommunications and technology-related issues.


Prior to joining Akin Gump in 1977, Jankowsky was legislative assistant to the Honorable Carl Albert, speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, from 1972 to 1977. Jankowsky served as a captain in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General Corps from 1968 to 1972.

Jankowsky received his B.B.A. in 1965 and his J.D. in 1968 from the University of Oklahoma. He is a member of the bars of Oklahoma and the District of Columbia and is admitted to practice before the U.S. Court of Military Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court.

The D.C. Office of the Attorney General (Charles F.C. Ruff, Esq.) determined in 1996 that I had formed a genuine, good faith belief that in January 1990, Akin Gump attorneys may have committed a criminal act in gaining unlawful access to my apartment, inspecting the apartment, and videotaping the apartment's contents.  The D.C. Office of the Attorney General affirmed that I formed a genuine, good-faith belief that the break-in was committed with the prior approval of the firm's Executive Committee, which included Joel Jankowsky.  It may be that Joel Jankowsky approved the commission of a felony in January 1990.  Brief of Appellee District of Columbia, Freedman v. D.C. Dept. Human Rights, D.C.C.A. no. 96-CV-961 (Sept. 1, 1998).  On January 15, 2010 the U.S. Marshal Service implicitly advised me that I should not question the validity of the Court's opinion in Freedman, and by extension that I should not question the validity of the determination of the D.C. Attorney General that an employee of Akin Gump formed a genuine, good faith belief that Joel Jankowsky or other Akin Gump Executive Committee partners may have approved the commission of a felony.

Interestingly, Joel Jankowsky worked closely with former Akin Gump partner Edward S. Knight, Esq. who, during my tenure at the firm, was a member of the firm's Legislative Practice Group.  Mr. Knight served as General Counsel of the U.S. Department of the Treasury during the Clinton Administration, in the 1990s.

What did Joel Jankowsky know and when did he know it?

Dear Sir:

This will advise the U.S. Secret Service that I have been the victim of an ongoing fraud and racketeering conspiracy run by attorney managers of the Washington, DC law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld: a criminal enterprise that has involved The George Washington University Medical Center Medical Faculty Associates, The District of Columbia Public Library (Richard Jackson, Interim Director), as well as several high-level federal officials including former President William Jefferson Clinton, former Treasury Secretary Robert E. Rubin, and former Treasury General Counsel, Edward S. Knight, Esq.

The Government of the District of Columbia (Office of The Corporation Counsel) determined (in 1997) that I formed a genuine and good-faith belief (though unsupported by fact) that in January 1990 members of the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld (a class of persons that included Edward S. Knight, Esq.) gained unlawful entry to my apartment (at the above address), and that the unlawful entry was made with the knowledge and consent of the firm's management committee (a class of persons that includes Robert S. Strauss, Esq. and Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., Esq.). Freedman v. D.C. Dept. of Human Rights, 96-CV-961 (DCCA, Sept. 1998), Brief of Appellee District of Columbia at 9. The firm did not dispute the District's determination or its legal or factual relevance.

Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., Esq. is a close personal friend of former President Clinton's.

Secret Service Special Agent Philip C. Leadroot (now retired) is familiar with this matter.

Enclosed is a collection of pertinent documents.

Sincerely,

Gary Freedman

Joel Jankowsky: Don't complain to me. Complain to the D.C. Government and the U.S. Marshal Service.

And by the way, I believe I have a first Amendment right to question any court opinion in any way I see fit.

Law professors critique -- sometimes harshly -- court opinions every day all over the country. That's what law professors do. They criticize adjudicated matters -- sometimes cases that were decided over a hundred years ago.

Did the U.S. Marshal Service ever hear of Plessy v. Ferguson? Is the U.S. Marshal Service advocating for segregation and Jim Crow?

Federal officers need to think of the ridiculous implications of some of the things they do and say.

The mere fact that the U.S. Marshal Service would embark on an intimidating inquiry of me calling into question something that is protected speech and is, in fact, routine in the legal world -- namely, questioning the wisdom of a court's opinion -- raises a concern about the bona fides of the U.S. Marshal Service interview of me at my residence on January 15, 2010.

What about abortion rights under Roe v. Wade? The right to abortion has been settled law in the U.S. since 1973; the highest court in the land said so.

Millions of anti-abortion advocates protest -- some of them vehemently -- the Supreme Court's opinion in Roe all the time. It's accepted practice to protest a court's opinion.

I'm sure there many blogs dedicated to protesting Roe.

Why in the world would the U.S. Marshal question my right to protest a court decision -- a state court opinion, no less!

I think the whole thing of interviewing me on 1/15/10 was fishy.

Note Well!! There is no evidence in the record that a psychiatrist opined that my belief that Akin Gump broke into my apartment was an idea of reference. The record states that Dennis Race spoke with Dr. Ticho about -- at most -- 7 incidents that I related to him.

There is no evidence in the record that my belief that Akin Gump broke into my apartment is delusional, an idea of reference, or the product of a psychiatric disorder.

The Attorney General simply said that among my beliefs is the belief that Akin Gump broke into my apartment. PERIOD!
