From: Don Stone

Sept. 12, 2019

Dear Executive Office for United States Attorneys.

I am somewhat confused over why DOJ considers this FOIA a duplicate.

Could you please explain in greater detail and provide a copy of my FOIA request that is considered a duplicate to this request.

Once identified I would possibly consider withdrawing the other request and making this a priority.

Or I would like this treated as a new and stand alone FOIA request.

I'm are trying to piece together a series of events involving the MD. DOJ/FBI activities between a Sept. 1994 meeting and June 19,1995 Maryland State civil trial pertaining to an alleged multitude of ongoing fraud schemes between Longo, Sapperstein, two MD. State Judges, Thomas Groton and Theodore Eschenburg and certain of their associates to obtain control and ownership of the potentially valuable intellectual property and patent(s) invented by Donald Stone.

This is an ongoing effort to create a more precise time line of events beginning with the Sept, 1994 meeting between Dale Kelberman (Head of MD. DOJ White Collar Crimes Div.), William Howard (State of Maryland Assistant Attorney General) Lori Simpson, (MD. DOJ Bankruptcy Trustee lawyer) and a Mike Beck (State of MD. Higher Education Investigator) and a sham trial June 19, 1995 Charles R. Longo Sr. and Donald Stone Industries Inc. vs Donald Stone, Worcester County Circuit Court, Snow Hill, MD.

This FOIA request is to investigate whether or not the MD. DOJ U.S. Attorney Battaglia and her Chief of White Collar Crimes, Dale Kelberman were:

1. Preparing to seek federal criminal indictments against Charles Richard Longo Sr. and certain of his
associates.

2. Did Battaglia and Kelberman prepare to convene a Grand Jury targeting Longo and terminate it or
did they actually convene a Grand Jury and then terminate it.

2. Did the DOJ lawyers, Battaglia & Kelberman not only pull their punches and terminate their
effort to indict Longo to allegedly to protect Gilbert Sapperstein, who was busy stealing and
laundering the $3.5 million from the Baltimore School Board during this time early 1990's to 2003.

3. a. If a federal criminal Grand Jury indictment was being planned by DOJ against Longo, was State
of MD. Assistant AG, William F. Howard subpoenaed to testify as a witness against Longo ?

b. If Howard did prepare to or actually testify as a witness before a Federal Grand Jury against
Longo would it support Howard's affidavit he filed in favor of Longo in Longo's sham lawsuit
against Stone scheduled for trial in June 1995.

c. Did Howard have knowledge of the DOJ preparation for convening a Grand Jury targeting Longo
and certain of his associates and then fraudulently conceal this exculpatory evidence from Stone
when Stone had a Maryland subpoena duece tecum served on Howard in Longo's sham lawsuit
against Stone.

d. Did Howard leak the preparation of this Grand Jury targeting Longo to Longo, Sapperstein, or
any of their associates either directly or indirectly ?

4. Did anyone from the MD. DOJ leak the preparation of convening a Federal Grand Jury seeking
criminal indictments against Longo either directly or indirectly to Longo, Sapperstein, or any of
their associates.

5. Did anyone from the MD. DOJ leak the preparation of convening a Federal Grand Jury seeking
criminal indictments against Longo either directly or indirectly to Longo, Sapperstein, or any of their
associates in exchange for a lucrative job in the private sector.

6. Was Donald Stone considered a possible witness against Longo, Sapperstein, and certain of their
associates ?
The Maryland U.S. Attorney's office conducted a lengthy telephone interview with Stone, a Florida
resident during this time frame.

7. Did Battaglia engage in alleged fraudulent concealment of exculpatory documents when she quashed
a legal and lawful Maryland State subpoena duece tecum Stone served on her in Longo and Donald
Stone Industries Inc. vs Donald Stone scheduled for trial June 19,1995.

8. Did Battaglia allegedly commit “Fraud on the Court” when she quashed Stone's subpoena duece
tecum.

9. Did Howard allegedly commit “Fraud on the Court” and/or engage in the fraudulent concealment of
exculpatory documents from Stone with his response to the Maryland State subpoena duece tecum
Stone had served on Howard.

It's for these reasons and others I would like for the DOJ to consider this as a stand alone FOIA request.

Please advise concerning your decision in this matter.

If you decide not to treat it as a stand alone FOIA request I'll go ahead and appeal.

Thanks for your time.

Best Regards,
Donald Stone
