2. Here Dr. Murtagh is featured in a GAP video (scroll to bottom) with then-GAP Executive Director Mark Cohen, who is now the Principal Deputy Special Counsel at the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (and onetime lawyer for Murtagh’s colleague Linda Lewis).
3. One of Dr. Murtagh’s former lawyers is F. Doug Hartnett, who at one point worked (and may still work) at the U.S. Office of Special Counsel under Carolyn Lerner. Hartnett is also a former GAP staffer and former associate of the DC-based employment law firm Passman & Kaplan, P.C.
4. Another of Dr. Murtagh’s former lawyers is Mick Harrison of Bloomington, Indiana. Harrison had some affiliation with GAP. Harrison worked with Richard Condit (now of GAP) on the Teresa Chambers v. U.S. Park Police case of the mid 2000′s. Condit is listed as a reference for Harrison.
5. Currently, Dr. Murtagh is represented by Steven Dennison Smith of Blacksburg, Virginia, against Clark Baker of Los Angeles, California, where I’m listed as a witness. Some of the details of that suit are available here. Attorneys Smith and Harrison previously represented Virginia physician Lokesh Vuyyuru, who had his medical license revoked and who was declared a vexatious litigation for abusing the legal process one too many times. Along the way, Attorney Smith was sanctioned for failing to adequately inquire into his client’s case before bringing suit. At one point, Richard Condit of GAP appealed one of Vuyyuru’s lawsuits all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court, with no success. Mark Cohen’s email was used for the Supreme Court docket.
6. Dr. Vuyyuru showed up to accompany Dr. Murtagh and their mutual colleague and attorney Steven D. Smith on December 6, 2013, when Dr. Murtagh attempted to criminally enjoin Clark Baker in a Los Angeles court from publicizing his litigation history on jamesmurtaghmd.com. The judge had to give Dr. Murtagh a lecture on the scope of the Bill of Rights and to tell him to take his concerns to civil court instead.
7. Murtagh’s civil lawsuit against Baker is currently pending, where a key issue is whether any of his perceived claims of privilege and confidentiality are legitimate and not contrived schemes for the purposes of silencing or extorting disfavored persons.
