Eugene I. Lambert, Esq.
Covington & Burling
I strongly urge you to speak to the Washington Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation concerning the following matters. If you have any information that could help the Bureau investigate the criminal conduct of the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, see Freedman v. D.C. Department of Human Rights, D.C.C.A. no. 96-CV-961 (Sept. 1, 1998), you have a legal duty, an ethical duty as a lawyer, and a fiduciary duty as a trustee of The George Washington University to disclose that information to federal law enforcement. Your failure to disclose evidence of crimes could jeopardize your license to practice law.
The D.C. Corporation Counsel advised the D.C. Superior Court (1996) and the D.C. Court of Appeals (1997) that I formed a good-faith belief that a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry (Stanley R. Palombo, M.D.) at GW routinely divulged confidential mental health information about me to Akin Gump in 1990 in violation of the D.C. Mental Health Information Act. Brief of Appellee District of Columbia at 10, Freedman, no. 96-CV-961.
The D.C. Court of Appeals determined that a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry (Gertrude R. Ticho, M.D., now deceased) at GW offered a professional psychiatric opinion about me to Malcolm Lassman, Esq. and Dennis M. Race, Esq. in 1991 upon which the U.S. Social Security Administration relied in 1993 to grant a fraudulent claim of disability insurance. Dr. Ticho's act of providing a professional psychiatric opinion about an (unnamed) individual without benefit of personal examination was a violation of the American Psychiatric Association's Code of Professional Ethics. See Goldwater v. Ginzburg, 396 U.S. 1049 (1970) (the APA's so-called Goldwater Rule prohibits a psychiatrist from offering a professional psychiatric opinion without benefit of personal examination). Information obtained by Akin Gump via Dr. Ticho's violation of the Goldwater Rule was used by Akin Gump's attorney managers to defraud the D.C. Department of Human Rights (1992 and 1993), the D.C. Superior Court (1996), the D.C. Court of Appeals (1997), the D.C. Corporation Counsel (1996 and 1997), and the U.S. Social Security Administration (1993).
The spouse of a Covington & Burling partner was the presiding judge in the D.C. Superior Court (1996) litigation cited above. I have had several written communications with that Covington & Burling partner.
If you recall, Mr. Lambert, you were placed on notice about these matters as early as the year 2004.
