To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Virginia Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Copies of all reports, lists, or databases detailing the number and/or status of lawsuits brought against the city's police department since 2016. This should include requests for, or documentation of, funds used to cover settlement agreements, court costs, or other expenses related to lawsuits.

This request should be construed to include any document submitted to, compiled by, or in any way maintained by the department, city council or any other city government body that lists lawsuits brought against the police department between 2016-2020. If a document exists that contains the requested information for some, but not all of the above mentioned years, please include that/those document(s).

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Please note that I am a citizen of Virginia, and am using MuckRock's services to help manage and track my request.

Sincerely,

Tom Nash

Tom - Pursuant to Virginia Code ยง2.2-3704(B)(4), it is not practically possible for the City of Charlottesville to provide the records you have requested in your FOIA received on June 12, 2020 (re: lawsuits) due to the necessity of legal review and records compilation. Therefore, the City of Charlottesville will provide the requested records within seven working days of this response, or by July 2, 2020.

Tom - The records responsive to your request are attached. Please note, these records are prepared as part of the annual audit. There is no database associated with these records. With respect to records related to settlements and costs, the City has no records responsive as those matters are handled by our insurance company.
