Re:  Gary Freedman vs. Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld
       DC Docket No. 92-087-P(N)

Dear Mr. Freedman:

This is in response to your request for a substantial weight review of the above-referenced charge of employment discrimination.  No review of your file was conducted because your charge alleged discrimination on a basis of sexual orientation, which is not covered by any of the statutes enforced by the EEOC.

If you would like to obtain copies of your investigative file, you need to contact the DC Office of Human Rights for their policies on file disclosure.  Their offices are located at One Judiciary Square, 441 4th Street NW, Suite 970N, Washington, DC  20001.  I am sorry that we cannot help you further in this matter.  If you have any questions, I can be reached at the above address and fax number or by phone at (202) 275-7674.
