A person called Crouse Hospital today and scheduled an appointment to screen me for placement at Van Duyn. When the screener did not show up, the Crouse representative called her back.

“I am out of the office due to the government shutdown and am not permitted to respond to work-related emails as long as the government is closed. When the government resumes operations, I will get back to you as quickly as possible.” David Knight, Attorney, U.S. Dept. of Justice
