Ms. Christine Gray,

Will you please e-mail to me a copy of your "Answering Brief of the WSBA" that you filed in the Supreme Court in my case this week.  I wish to provide it efficiently to parties who have an interest in the case, some of whom may wish to file amicus briefs. My hope is that you will provide it in either a word processor format (MS Word) or Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF), but my preference is the latter. MS Word permits saving a document as a more compact PDF file, but I'll do that conversion if you don't.  Adobe Acrobat PDF is a "secure format" so that the document's file cannot be altered by its recipients.  As I recall, you once expressed a fear that I might alter and misrepresent your documents as a reason for your declining my request for a computer-file version of them.

I will also post your brief on my website, unless you object to that. I'll even post, if you'll provide it, your 26-page "Counterstatement in Support of Hearing Officer's Decision" that you filed last fall with the Disciplinary Board. I then posted my Statement in Opposition and my Response to your Counterstatement, but your scanned 26-page document simply required too much memory space (many times more than a word
processor or PDF file).

Thank you for considering, and hopefully honoring, this request.

Doug Schafer
WSBA No. 8652
