THE HOAX WAS NOT OUR JOKE To the editor: Readers of the [May 1] “Inadmissible” item on Kim Keenan of Jack H. Olender & Associates purportedly obtaining a $17 million malpractice verdict in West Virginia [ "Don't Look at Me," Page 4] should know that I advised Legal Times that the information was false. The heading of the e-mail I sent Legal Times was “Kim Keenan Denies Winning 17 Million Dollar Malpractice Verdict.” I further stated in the e-mail, “In fact, the trial attorney for the child was Geoffrey Fieger from Michigan, of Dr. Jack Kevorkian fame.” I in no way intended to convey to Legal Times that the attribution of the verdict to a member of my office was correct. In fact, I tried to do the opposite. I sent the item to you because I thought it was an interesting “fluff” item that involved journalistic malpractice or a hoax. One thing should be clear: Neither Ms. Keenan nor I had anything to do with initiating what now appears to be a hoax. Jack H. Olender Washington, D.C.
