Dear Mr. Knight,

We are in receipt of your below email submitted and received on October 22, 2015 by the California Department of Justice/Attorney General's Office (DOJ), in which you sought records pursuant to the Public Records Act (PRA) as set forth in Government Code section 6250 et seq.

We note that your public records request is directed to the DOJ but seeks records from other departments. Absent a request for representation by another agency, the DOJ will respond solely on its own behalf, and not on behalf of other departments. If you wish to review records that are in the custody or control of another state or local agency, you should direct your request to that agency. You also may wish to contact the U.S. Department of Justice.
