The Atlanta-based firm Kilpatrick Stockton LLP says attorney Mark Levy, who served as deputy assistant attorney general in the Department of Justice between 1993 and 1995, died Thursday.
An attorney who served in the Clinton administration was found dead Thursday in an apparent suicide at his Washington law office.
The death comes after the chief financial officer of mortgage giant Freddie Mac killed himself last week. David Kellermann was found dead April 22 in the basement of his northern Virginia home.

Here’s a P.hd thesis that could actually be done, what with public donation and registration records: do liberals kill themselves more than conservatives? Just thnking about celebrities, it sure seems like it. You got this man, Vince Foster, homeless advocate Mitch Snyder, D.C. Council president John Wilson, Abbie Hoffman, and Spalding Gray. Hard to say, but it’s harder to come up with an equivalent list of conservatives, although there have been a few.
Wow. I read his bio. Someone obviously THAT intelligent and ‘accomplished’ (albeit for the other side) had NOTHING to live for anymore?
I still find losing your job, when you have a resume like THAT, to be a slim excuse for a suicide.
But, who knows? Maybe he found out recently that he has cancer or something? Bad Luck comes in threes.
I’m sure Hillary is devastated. :) /s
/sorry, bad taste
you had a two'fer and didn't even realize it ;)
They discovered 6 bullet entries in the back. Worse case of suicide they’ve seen...
Apparent all right.Interesting how there were almost no suicides when Bush was president, and now, the Dems are offing themselves. If they off a Republican we will have civil war.Lets see what developes. So far its a purge by the Nationalist Socialists ( fascists )of Democrats.Mussolini and Hitler did the same with the bureaucrats who endangered them.
So you’re telling us that a liberal attorney wouldn’t be able to find work at another firm? He killed himself because he got laid off from his law firm, and he’s a left-wing attorney? C’mon, we have to do better than this.
And the ‘list’ grows...
I wonder if they found any traces of mud on his shoes....from Fort Marcy Park.
Getting rid of any and all witnesses and evidence.
Yep. That’s the Chicago-style thuggery of the DemocRATS all right. We’d best get used to this and more of the same ‘death by politiks’ that occurred under the Clintonistas...only even more so now.
And of course, there is not ONE media person that dares to question these ....occurrences (rather convenient incidents).
I’ve been watching the reruns of Jericho. In one episode, an ex-LA Times reporter actually tried to get to the truth of who was really behind the nuking of American cities and was killed. Methinks the media pressholes of this day and this reality already know what their fate will be if they go against “Big O”.
Time for a change.
Hate to say -- although I'm no prophet -- but I did foresee this disturbing trend a long time ago.
People nowadays lack the stamina to face adversity. Like the Muslims, we're soon going to develop a culture a death. Liberals, especially, given their moral relativism, see suicide as a rational alternative to a frustrated life.
>> apparent suicide, yeah right.
No, seriously! Shot himself in the head.
I think he was told he was fired, and then blackmailed someone in the firm ...
An accomplished feller like that with a fat Rolodex would be able to find himself another job without a hitch or at worse retire to leisurely life, you'd think. Unless he knew too much?
Most mental health professionals would say that committing suicide at work links the violent act with the job.
Either that, or they didn’t have enough time to roll him up in a carpet and tote him off to Fort Mercy Park.
LOL - thanks
Well, he was a member of the firms "Subprime and Credit Markets Litigation Group ". That is probably a good place to start.
Our Practice - Services - Subprime and Credit Markets Litigation
Following the collapse of the subprime mortgage market in 2007, there has been an unprecedented flood of litigation, proposed regulation and criminal investigation related to that markets lending and underwriting practices, accounting standards, investment risk ratings, and the sale, marketing and investment in collateralized debt obligations (CDOs). Though banks worldwide have announced more than $100 billion in credit losses and write-downs since early 2007, most analysts estimate that total write-downs for losses in the subprime market could reach $800 billion by 2009. These losses have spurred a myriad of lawsuits against a broad range of defendants.
As of December, 2007, 32 class action lawsuits had been filed by investors against subprime lenders, underwriters and investors in CDOs. Investors and home-owners are also filing numerous individual lawsuits against the many participants in the subprime mortgage lending and securitization markets. Shareholders in public companies whose share prices have declined because of losses from CDO investments are filing cases against those companies and others. The claims alleged in these lawsuits include negligence, fraud, failure of financial statements to comply with GAAP, failure to disclose information regarding loan packages sold to investors, predatory lending, excessive fees, securities fraud, violations of state consumer protection laws, and many other types of substantive claims. A recent decision by the United States Supreme Court threatens to broaden the scope of potential claims by possibly allowing individual 401(k) participants to bring lawsuits when the value of their individual 401(k) plan declines. If a plan is invested in securitized debt or in companies with exposure to subprime credit markets, this case opens the door to lawsuits against the plan administrator and others if the value of the plan declines. The litigation arising out of this series of events has only begun to enter the courts but the defendants named in the cases already filed include:
real estate agents
real estate appraisers
investors who purchased CDOs
credit rating agencies
public and privately held companies that invested in CDOs
