Dear Mr. President:
I sincerely and profusely apologize to you and your family for the email I forwarded. I accept
full responsibility; I have no one to blame but myself.
I can assure you that such action on my part will never happen again. I have requested that the
Judicial Council of the Ninth Circuit review this matter.
Honestly, I don't know what else I can do. Please forgive me and, again, my most sincere
