Hunton & Williams replies to my questions regarding partner D. Kyle Sampson’s leave. Sort of.

Last week, I posted this diary regarding David Addington’s inability to find a job and D. Kyle Sampson’s leave of absence last December as a partner at Hunton & Williams. Included in that post was this email I sent to Eleanor Kerlow, Senior Public Relations Manager, Hunton & Williams, regarding the firm’s employment of Mr. Sampson:

Eleanor Kerlow
Senior Public Relations Manager, Hunton & Williams

Ms. Kerlow,

I write The Grievance Project at which I have been following the career of D. Kyle Sampson. I am writing requesting Hunton & Williams’ response to the following questions related to Mr. D. Kyle Sampson.

Was the leave taken at the firm’s request?
Has the firm been contacted by Nora R. Dannehy regarding Mr. Sampson?
Has any other attorney at Hunton & Williams taken a leave from the firm due to Ms. Dannehy’s investigation?
Was a press release issued relating to Mr. Sampson’s leave? If so, please forward a copy to my attention.
Is it typical or policy for partners in Hunton’s D.C. office to take a leave from the firm while applying for admission to the D.C. bar?
Is Mr. Sampson welcome back to Hunton upon his admission to the D.C. bar?

Thank you for your attention to these questions.

I haven’t yet received a formal reply from Ms. Kerlow or other official response, but Ms. Kerlow – or someone else from Hunton & Williams – did stop by TGP the other day to read my post:
