On this day in 1999, 23 years ago, we won a landmark jury verdict in Sherrie Graham Farver v. Dr. Kenneth Carpenter, M.D. in Anderson County, Tenn. Circuit Court.
The Department of Energy's malfeasant psychiatrist called Sherrie "paranoid, delusional and psychotic" for raising environmental health concerns about K-25 plant cyanide exposures, ending her security clearance and career in radiation protection in Oak Ridge, Tenn. nuclear plants then operated by Lockheed Martin. Verdict upheld on appeal. DOE's unAmerican abuse of psychiatry to attack ethical employees was rightly condemned by twelve local jurors. Great day.
The Oak Ridge oligarchy of atomic blunderers was angry. Suspended 2004. Disbarred 2006. Hope to get LLM and get my license back one day. Currently a goverment watchdog in St. Augustine, Florida, where I've lived since November 5, 1999.

Here's the Farver v. Carpenter decision from the Tennessee Court of Appeals (tortfeasor was permission to appeal denied by Tennessee Supreme Court -- my brief in the Tennessee Supreme Court was only one (1) page long, inspired by reading an article about some recently discovered Abraham Lincoln appellate briefs found in Illinois courthouses, which were actually worthy of the name "brief"): https://casetext.com/case/farver-v-carpenter
