RE:  Disability Claim No. xxx-xx-xxxx

Dear Mr. Muffolett:

This will advise the U.S. Social Security Administration with respect to the above-referenced disability claim that I presented oral argument before the District of Columbia Court of Appeals on October 13, 1994 in the matter of Gary Freedman v. District of Columbia Department of Human Rights, Docket No. 93-AA-1342.  The appellate panel comprised Judges John M. Ferren, Julia Cooper Mack, and John A. Terry.

A decision by the Court in favor of the District of Columbia Department of Human Rights will affirm that agency's finding that as of October 29, 1991 I was paranoid, potentially violent, and unemployable (and, by implication, affirm the determination by my former direct supervisor, Mrs. Christine Robertson, that I may be armed and homicidal and a threat to persons employed at the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, including Mr. Vernon Jordan, a close friend of the President of the United States and Mr. Robert S. Strauss, former U.S. Ambassador to Russia).

DHR Finding of Fact No. 6:

6. Respondent also sought outside professional guidance because of the emotional and psychological nature of Complainant’s allegations and his coworkers responses. Respondent contacted an unnamed counselor from its Employee Assistance Program and an outside psychiatrist. Dr. Gertrude Ticho identified Complainant’s behavior, putting a negative meaning to virtually every event as “ideas of reference” and cautioned that individuals in similar circumstances may become violent. After Respondent’s investigators consulted with Complainant’s supervisor and Respondent’s Management team, Respondent terminated Complainant’s employment.
