Bloomingdale connection to the Kagan Confirmation Hearings

Back in the 80's, a man named Lee Sandidge lived in one of the apartments located at 103 Seaton Pl NW. Mr. Sandidge worked in the laundromat that was below his apartment. In order to reach his workplace, which was directly under his apartment, he had to step outside. His attorney tells me that he felt so unsafe in the neighborhood at that time, he carried a pistol, which was frowned upon by law enforcement professionals.

Mr. Sandidge's case went all the way to the Supreme Court, although it was ultimately denied for review. Elena Kagan, current Supreme Court nominee, was then clerking to Judge Thurgood Marshall. Her comments on the case have recently surfaced during the confirmation hearings.

Mr. Sandidge's attorney is wondering if anybody remembers Mr. Sandidge or knows his current whereabouts? If so, please contact Elaine Mittleman at her name @ msn dot com.
