Thank you for your time and efforts in this matter. I know that this is complicated and arduous work. So, please know that what you do is really and truly appreciated.
I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
Best Regards, Sincerely,
Dear Mr. Phelan:
This correspondence is in response to your request, which was received by the California Department of Justice/Office of the Attorney General (DOJ) on May 21, 2018, in which you sought records pursuant to the Public Records Act as set forth in Government Code section 6250 et seq.
Specifically, your request is stated as follows: "Memos, emails, letters, formal complaints, reports, and other related documents related to the following business operating in California: Universal Student Housing, Inc."
We have searched our legal indices and found no responsive records.
To the extent that your request seeks consumer complaint records or investigative files, we must decline your request as we are unable to confirm or deny if such records exist. Complaints and investigative records are confidential law enforcement records of the Attorney General. Government Code section 6254, subdivision (f) expressly exempts from disclosure investigatory and security files of the Attorney General including complaints about unlawful practices. (See Williams v. Superior Court (1993) 5 Cal.4th 337, 354.)
