Open Letter to Dan Spiegel (Covington & Burling) -- Is Dan Spiegel Concealing Knowledge of a Felony?

Dan Spiegel, Esq.
Covington & Burling

Mr. Spiegel:

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 and an ethical duty as a lawyer to  disclose that information to federal law enforcement.  You practiced law at Akin Gump during my tenure at the firm; your association with the firm extended to the year 2008.  Your failure to disclose evidence of crimes could jeopardize your license to practice law.

The D.C. Office of Corporation Counsel (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 included Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., Esq., Robert S. Strauss, Esq., Malcolm Lassman, Esq., Laurence J. Hoffman, Esq., Joel Jankowsky, Esq. and Richard L. Wyatt, Jr., Esq.) 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, Freedman v. D.C. Dept. Human Rights, D.C.C.A. no. 96-CV-961 (Sept. 1, 1998). Neither Strauss, Jordan, Wyatt, Jankowsky, Race, Lassman, managing partner Hoffman nor any Akin Gump manager disputed the D.C. Corporation Counsel's position or questioned its legal or factual relevance.

Charles F.C. Ruff, Esq., a Covington & Burling partner, served as D.C. Corporation Counsel during the pendency of the above-referenced D.C. Superior Court litigation (1996).  Mr. Ruff's Corporation Counsel office filed with the D.C. Superior Court pleadings that relied heavily on legally-irrelevant "after-acquired evidence" without an order by the court granting leave to make said proffer. Cf. Gross v. Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld (D.D.C. 2007).

I have had numerous communications about these matters with U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr., Esq., formerly a Covington & Burling partner.

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 late October 1991.   The U.S. Social Security Administration relied in 1993 on Mr. Race's sworn declaration about that psychiatric opinion 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).

I believe that you know Dennis M. Race, an Akin Gump partner, and that you may have first-hand information about the circumstances surrounding my job termination by Mr. Race on October 29, 1991.

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.

Mr. Eugene I. Lambert, Esq., a Covington & Burling partner, was placed on notice about the criminal activity of Akin Gump's senior attorney managers as early as the year 2004.

I was diagnosed with psychotic mental illness by the George Washington University Medical Center in September 1992. I have suffered from psychotic mental illness continuously since said date. My representations about reality cannot be relied on as objective.

It bothers me that the District offers evidence to the court and doesn't indicate that it's after-acquired evidence.

So the court reads the District's brief and says, "Wow, look at this, this guy really is nuts! And its all admissible, probative evidence."

BUT IT WASN'T ADMISSIBLE PROBATIVE EVIDENCE!!
