  RE: Possible Federal Civil Rights Violation

Dear Representative Norton:

Thank you for the letter of acknowledgement dated March 8, 2005 (copy attached) regarding a courtesy copy of my correspondence that was forwarded to your office by a fellow member of Congress.

The correspondence included a letter dated November 2, 2004 addressed to D.C. Police Chief Charles Ramsey that details a possible federal civil rights violation which falls within your federal legislative and administrative jurisdiction.  The letter was contained on a computer disc and may have gone unread by your office.

It is my understanding that under U.S. Supreme Court rulings defamation by a state agency may constitute a federal civil rights violation.  I was a victim of severe defamation at my last place of employment by a senior management attorney (Dennis M. Race, Esq.), my supervisor, and coworkers.  The defamation was compounded by the D.C. Office of Corporation Counsel; and, moreover, the Corporation Counsel's actions were subsequently acquiesced in by the employer.  See Freedman v. D.C. Department of Human Rights, 96-CV-961 (Sept. 1998).

For your information, I provide a printed copy of that letter.


Gary Freedman
