I finally got a written response from the Department of Health & Human Services, Office for Civil Rights. Â They wanted to let me know that they are in the process of reviewing my complaint to decide if the OCR has authority and is able to act on my complaint. Â They dutifully notified me my complaint is open to the public under the Freedom of Information Act. Â Wonder what fancy FBI database I’ll end up in now.
I think it took so long because my e-mailed complaint had to be printed out in DC and then physically mailed to the Chicago office. Â (I’m guessing) Â The wheels of justice go slowly in the States – especially since they’re covered in adhesiveÂ cellophaneÂ of the crimson variety.
