Did an Influential Friend of Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. Approve the Commission of a Felony? What Did the U.S. Marshal Say?

These are the facts:

The D.C. Office of Attorney General (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 includes a personal friend of U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr.) 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 from my treating psychiatrists 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 -- was genuine. Brief of Appellee District of Columbia at 5-12, Freedman v. D.C. Dept. Human Rights, D.C.C.A. no. 96-CV-961 (Sept. 1, 1998). None of Akin Gump's attorney managers disputed the D.C. Attorney General's position or questioned its legal or factual relevance.

On January 15, 2010 the U.S. Marshal Service implicitly cautioned me against questioning the validity of the D.C. Court of Appeals' opinion in Freedman, and by extension cautioned 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 a personal friend of Eric H. Holder or other Akin Gump attorney managers approved the break-in of my apartment in January 1990.

At least one attorney (Pennsylvania Bar ID #41032) who used to be employed at Akin Gump has formed a genuine, good faith belief that a personal friend of Eric H. Holder (or other Akin Gump attorney manager) approved the commission of a felony in 1990. That's the opinion of the D.C. Office of Attorney General.

What did the U.S. Marshal say?

The action of the D.C. Court of Appeals in ruling in favor of the D.C. Attorney General should not be questioned. And that's what the U.S. Marshal has implicitly said.  Precisely how the U.S. Marshal has jurisdiction over persons who criticize a state supreme court decision is not entirely clear.  But then, the U.S. Marshal is under the purview of the Attorney General of the United States.  And the Attorney General is a personal friend of a senior management partner of the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld.

Is it a mere coincidence that the senior Akin Gump management partner allegedly tried to buy the silence of a White House intern in the late 1990s -- an individual who had incriminating evidence that might lead to the impeachment of the President of the United States?

Perhaps this matter should be brought to the attention of the Inspector General of the United States.

Eric H. Holder Jr.

Attorney general

Will bring to the job: A heavyweight résumé bursting with legal and law enforcement credentials. Mr. Holder has spent most of his career as a federal prosecutor, and his friends say his views on the law and the role of government align closely with Mr. Obama’s.

Is linked to Mr. Obama by: Mutual friends and shared experiences, though Mr. Holder and Mr. Obama did not meet until 2004, when they were seated next to each other at a small dinner party in Washington. Mr. Holder has said he immediately “clicked” with Mr. Obama over the dinner, hosted by Ann Walker Marchant, niece of Vernon E. Jordan Jr., one of the city’s superlawyers.

There is little doubt that my blog in general was a concern for the U.S Marshal:

1. What was it that motivated you to write a blog?

2. Couldn't you do volunteer work (i.e., do something other than writing a blog)?

3. What precisely is it that you are looking for (i.e., what can be done to get you to stop blogging)?

4. I have been reading your blog since November 2009 (a two month period).

5. What were the names of the Appeals Court judges who heard your case?

Also note the fact that someone at DOJ was reading my blog every day since November 2009 -- and read my blog all morning the Friday following Thanksgiving from about 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM.

Note that I wrote this post without mentioning any Akin Gump partner's name!

According to Akin Gump, that makes all the difference in the world. ("We spoke to a practicing psychiatrist without mentioning Claimant's name.")
