To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Alabama Public Records , I hereby request the following records:
Under the Alabama open records law 36-12-40 et seq. I am requesting the opportunity to obtain copies of public records that will help me elucidate the timeline for when Kevin Robert Macaluso interviewed, was offered the position, and accepted the position as Chair of the microbiology and immunology dept at the University of South Alabama. As I realize as of 8/1/2019, Kevin Robert Macaluso became a resident of Alabama, the lawsuit this information is needed for began in early 2019, well before he relocated to Alabama. Additionally, I have requested these items in discovery and he is not complying with the law.
If there are any fees for searching or copying these records please inform me if the cost will exceed $25. However I would like to request a waiver of all fees. This information is not being sought in commercial purposes. The statute requires a response in a reasonable time period. if access to the records I am requesting will take longer please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to insect the requested records. If you deny any and all of this request please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.
