An interim response, stating the request is being processed.


Mr Lasser,

Attached was the Attorney General's ruling that had been previously sent. APD's position is that no information is public. Also, the attorney general will send a copy of its letter ruling.

Dear Mr. Lasser:

Attached is another copy of the Austin Police Department's ("APD") request for an Attorney General ruling. APD has requested this ruling to withhold ALL responsive information. Thus, the department will not be releasing any documents to you at this time. If the attorney general rules that some information must be released, this office will release that information to you.
