demand that youimmediately cease and desist from making false, derogatory, and inflammatory statements regardingPeter's mental health to members of the media and the public at large.It has come to my attention that you have made repeated and numerous allegations that Peteris mentally ill. These statements are completely false and malicious. Peter does not now, nor hashe ever, suffered from a mental illness.It is apparent that you are making these statements in order to undermine Peter's credibilityand to discourage serious journalists from pursuing stories involving the Heimlich maneuver fordrowning and other unethical activities by the Heimlich Institute. These actions are blatantlymalicious and serve no purpose other than to paint Peter in a false light to the media. Peter will nottolerate these improper attempts to tarnish his reputation.To avoid further legal action, it is imperative that you immediately refrain from making anyfurther statements regarding Peter's mental health. In addition, to ensure that Peter's reputation isadequately protected, please issue
