RE: Freedman v. D.C. Dept. Human Rights
D.C. Superior Court No. 0014 M.P.A.
Dear Mr. Ruff:
The enclosed correspondence is forwarded for the information of the Office of Corporation Counsel for the District of Columbia with respect to the above-referenced matter.
The above-referenced matter is an appeal of a no probable cause determination by the D.C. Department of Human Rights. The no probable cause determination was based on an express finding of fact that my belief that I had been fired as a result of unlawful discrimination was the product of a severe paranoid mental disturbance that rendered me potentially violent and not suitable for employment.
Be advised that any substantive pleadings filed by the Office of Corporation Counsel in the above-referenced matter that support the said finding of fact may be material to a possible future insanity defense were I to commit a crime of violence (including homicide or other heinous crime) under the laws of the United States or the District of Columbia. Any such pleadings filed by the Office of Corporation Counsel may necessarily impair the prosecution of any crime with which I am charged that requires a specific mental state.
