Dear Mr. Bowie:
Enclosed for your general information is additional background information: a practice appellate brief and grading sheet from a course in legal writing that I took in my first year of law school at Gonzaga University Law School in Spokane, Washington, in 1979-1980.
I was given 96 points out of 100 for the brief, and (contrary to the school's policy) an additional two points for my oral argument. The grading sheet contains the instructor's comment, "excellent oral presentation."
The instructor, Michael Makibe, Esq., is currently engaged in the private practice of law. As of 1993, Mr. Makibe's office address was 2607 Rooke Avenue, Honolulu, Hawaii.
I vaguely recall that Mr. Makibe told me that my legal work, as of the completion of my first year of law school, was on the level of a practicing attorney. As you know, Mr. Dennis M. Race, hiring partner at the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, continues to maintain that I suffer from a severe and debilitating mental illness that renders me potentially violent. Such are the tragic ravages of mental illness, in the view of Dennis M. Race.
