How do you want to handle this? I looked her up and cant tell if she’s a wacko or not. If she’s legit, it could be a good chance to set the record straight... but I get nervous about anyone that would pay any attention to Carl. Thoughts?

Dear Mr. Paquette, Thank you so much for taking the time to call me this afternoon. This is the message I sent Mr. Rotenberg: "I’m writing in follow up of my call to your offices this am, which was to invite you to comment on apparent discrepancies in documents, specifically: a) the appearance now of a signed HIPAA consent when none was produced during Mary Weiss’ claim against the university b) the certification from Medical Records that there was no signature page on Markingson’s HIPAA consent. c) that there were "Evaluation to Consent" forms with identical responses noted as the patient answers--from different patients. The documents appear to have been prepopulated and presigned by Jeanne Kenney and a witness. d) In your letter of March, 2011, to Mike Howard, you note that Markingson signed the HIPAA consent on Nov 24 and then note that the consent for participation in research was signed Nov 21 How could he have been evaluated and consented for this study 3 days before he agreed to release that information about his eligibility7 I have many other questions about this case, but these are the ones specifically relevant to next week’s post I would be happy to have your comments on the discrepancies to include" Yes, I would appreciate a timeline if you find it different from the dates I have Also, you indicated that the Court declared Dan competent to consent to a trial I cannot confirm anything like that in my documents, rather, he clearly appeared incompetent Could you please send me documentation of your statement? I look forward to any other documentation that you wish to send me that refutes or corrects me As I said, I have no agenda, but go with the documents as presented and as I pore through them I would be happy to speak with Mr. Rotenberg over the weekend or on Monday. I will be home except from 122 30 EST I will be leaving for a trip on Tuesday and need to post before I leave I’m sure you understand Thanks

Would there be value in getting any testimonials from other families and subjects, or an endorsement from the National Alliance on Mental Illness to drive home the point that there is a lot of good work we do? I am starting a new study soon that will be a huge nationwide registry study of persons with schizophrenia-related disorders, involving several community clinical sites, that I would like to get some media attention for. It’s a little early to do that right now, but I wanted to give you a heads up on that. SCO On Mar 7, 2013, at 9:37 AM, jpaquett@umn.edu wrote: I am yes. My boss (Brian Lucas) and I are working with them to determine how best to work through the process of clarifying things to certain reporters while determining how best to promote our side of the issue to hopefully quiet Carl down in the future. He stepped way out of bounds here, and perhaps that will end this charade for awhile.
