RE: DCOHR Docket No. 92-087-P(CN)
      Gary Freedman v. DC Office of Corporation Counsel

Dear Mr. Freedman:

This is to inform you that we received the December 20, 1997 correspondence you sent to Chairman Gilbert F. Casellas.  Chairman Casellas forwarded your correspondence to this office for response.

We contacted the District of Columbia Office of Human Rights (DCOHR) to determine the status of your charge.  We were informed that your charge is pending appeal.

Once DCOHR's administrative process is complete, and if you disagree with their findings, you may request that his office conduct a Substantial Weight Review of DCOHR's findings.  To do so, you must make this request within 15 days, in writing, to Susan Buckingham Reilly, the director of this office.  You may write to Ms. Reilly at the address at the top of this page.

We hope this is responsive to your request.

Sincerely,

/s/

Lizette T. Molina, Supervisor
Charge Receipt/Technical Information Unit

I ultimately requested the EEOC in September 1998 to conduct a review after the D.C. Court of Appeals affirmed the DCOHR decision of 1993. The EEOC advised me there was nothing it could do because under Title VII perceived sexual orientation is not a protected class.
