            RE: Docket No.: 92-087-P(N)
                  Gary Freedman v. Akin, Gump, Hauer & Feld

Dear Mr. Stocks:

For the sake of completeness of the Complaint file in the above-referenced matter I am enclosing a letter dated November 28, 1989 from Albert Rothenberg, M.D.

It was Dr. Rothenberg who referred me to Dr. Stanley R. Palombo, the psychiatrist whom I consulted during my employment with Respondent.


Gary Freedman 

[The D.C. Government advised the D.C. Superior Court (1996) and the D.C. Court of Appeals (1997) that I formed a good-faith belief that Dr. Palombo routinely transmitted in 1990 confidential mental health information about me derived from my psychotherapeutic sessions to managers at the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, in violation of the D.C. Mental Health Information Act of 1978.   District of Columbia Reply Brief, Freedman v. D.C. Department of Human Rights, no. 96-CV-961 (Sept. 1, 1998).  Dr. Palombo was a clinical professor of psychiatry, The George Washington University Medical Center Department of Psychiatry.]
