Letter to Gertrude R. Ticho, M.D. -- 1996

On about Friday May 17, 1996 I received in the mail a copy of the District's Reply Brief in Freedman v. D.C. Dept. of Human Rights, D.C. Superior Court.

May 18, 1996
3801 Connecticut Avenue, NW
#136
Washington, DC  20008-4530

Gertrude R., Ticho, M.D.
3120 Brandywine St., NW
Washington, DC

Dear Dr. Ticho:

Thank you for speaking with me by telephone on Saturday May 18, 1996.

As you will recall, I stated that the Government of the District of Columbia has reaffirmed its prior (incorrect) determination that you spoke with Malcolm Lassman and Dennis M.  Race, two attorney managers at the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, in late October 1991.

It would be of great value to me if you could write out on your professional letterhead the following simple and brief statement that fully disavows the allegations made by the Government of the District of Columbia.
It's that simple.  It should require only two minutes of your time.  I will be forwarding your statement to the Office of Corporation Counsel of the District of Columbia--the attorney for the city.  For your information I enclose a copy of the referenced determination made by the D.C. government that incorrectly refers to you.

I thank you very much for your assistance in clearing up this unfortunate misunderstanding.

Sincerely,

Gary Freedman

Three months earlier, in February 1996, I was diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia by Dimitrios Georgopoulos, M.D. at GW.

Is my letter to Dr. Ticho tainted by psychotic mental illness?
