On February 4, 1992 the D.C. Department of Human Rights (DHR) issued a complaint against the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, my former employer, alleging that my job termination on October 29, 1991 was unlawful under the D.C. Human Rights Act of 1977. On May 22, 1992 Akin Gump filed with DHR its Response to Interrogatories and Document Request.
DHR sent me Akin Gump's Response by certified mail in late December 1992. The following is a telephone message pink slip prepared by the front desk employee at my apartment building alerting me to the certified letter:
MESSAGE: Please sign for Certified letter on the day of 12-22-92.
