RE: Social Security Disability Claim xxx-xx-xxxx
Enclosed with respect to the above-referenced claim is a final determination by the District of Columbia Department of Human Rights, issued September 24, 1993, that found that the action of my former employer, the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, was lawful based as it was on Akin Gump’s determination, made in consultation with a psychiatrist, Dr. Gertrude R. Ticho, that I suffered from a serious mental disorder that rendered me potentially violent.
I direct your specific attention to page 8 of the Determination on Reconsideration paragraph 3: “Exhibit D of Complainant’s Request for Reconsideration, a handwritten letter from Dr. Gertrude Ticho, presents evidentiary questions regarding authenticity. Furthermore, the letter does not present new evidence that would preclude the possibility of a discussion between Dr. Gertrude Ticho and some other employee of Respondent whereby the incidents of harassment may have been presented and discussed without mentioning Complainant’s name.”
Also enclosed is a copy of a transcript of a telephone conversation I had with Dr. Ticho on July 3, 1993 in which she denies having communicated with Akin Gump and states that she would never provide a representation regarding the mental status of an individual she had not evaluated in person.
