On January 15, 2014 I published the following post on this blog titled, "Open Letter to Akin Gump." It is the text of an email message I sent to the managing partner of my former employer, the law firm of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld. The content of the writing is flagrantly paranoid and consistent with the disorder that I have been diagnosed with, namely, Paranoid (Delusional) Disorder, a psychotic mental illness.
Numerous parties logged onto the post, showing apparent interest in my paranoid statements. I am curious why paranoid statements would trigger such interest?
Anthony T. Pierce, Esq.
Managing Partner -- DC Office
Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld
Dear Mr. Pierce:
I worked as a paralegal at Akin Gump from 1988 to 1991. In late October 1988 Akin Gump managers Malcolm Lassman and Earl Segal placed me under surveillance. That surveillance (now conducted by parties associated with the firm whose identities are unknown to me) has gone on for more than 25 years. Akin Gump's conduct amounts to stalking. I have suffered extreme emotional distress as a result of Akin Gump's conduct. I request that Akin Gump put an end to the surveillance at once.

The D.C. Office of Corporation Counsel (predecessor of the D.C. Attorney General) affirmed in pleadings filed with the D.C. Court of Appeals on July 25, 1997 that I had a genuine, good-faith belief that I was a victim of surveillance by Akin Gump at least as of late 1991. The Corporation Counsel depicted my beliefs as a product of mental illness.
