Re: People v. Nosair Ind. No. 14030/90

Dear Justice Schlesinger:

On January 9, 1992, 1 hand-delivered a letter to you in which I not only vehemently protested an alleged statement from you to Ms. Gilbert that I had been seen receiving a wad of cash from a Sudanese in the courtroom I understand that you repeated this remark to Mr. Warren.

In that communication, I asked for information as to the source of your remark but I have yet to hear from you in response thereto.

-Your remarks caused some tension in the defense ranks and certainly could cause IRS and other problems.

I feel that your failure to answer my letter is both uncivil and demeaning to me. I did not believe that you would treat me in this cavalier fashion and that I was entitled to an explanation as to the information on which you based what are totally untrue statements.

I would be grateful for a response to this letter so that I can bring the matter to a head without resorting to any other channels.

Respectfully yours,

William M. Kunstler
