RE: DCOHR Docket no. 92-087-P(CN)
   Gary Freedman v. D.C. Dept. Human Rights

Dear Ms. Nawrocki:

This will serve as my formal written request that the Washington Field Office of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission conduct a Substantial Weight Review of the findings of the District of Columbia Department of Human Rights in Freedman v. Akin, Gump, Hauer & Feld, agency no. 92-087-P(CN).

The District of Columbia Court of Appeals issued its Memorandum Opinion and Judgment in the appeal of the above agency action (titled Freedman v. D.C. Dept. of Human Rights, no. 96-CV-961) on September 1, 1998.  The Court's action on September 1, 1998, which affirmed the agency's no probable cause determination, ends the appeals process in this matter and triggers this formal written request for EEOC review.

I can be reached at (202) 362-7064; messages can be left at (202) 363-3800.

Thank you very much for your assistance in this matter.


Gary Freedman

The EEOC later advised me that it did not have jurisdiction to conduct a substantial weight review in my case because TITLE VII does not recognize "perceived sexual orientation" as a protected class.
