Koweek, to not submit a potential criminal case against Ronald Foundation, Gary Gordon, or Shane Hug to a Grand Jury. This may include but not be limited to any intra-agency memoranda, worksheets or standard forms, and the letter sent by Czajka to defense attorneys on or around Oct. 5, 2017 described in the following Albany Times Union news article: <http://www.timesunion.com/news/article/Special-prosecutor-ends-Troy-911-case-12257927.php>.

Please find attached a letter regarding your FOIL request.
I have received your acknowledgment letter of Oct. 16 re: my FOIL request concerning the Troy 911 case.
I write to advise you of a minor error in the language of my initial request: the name "Ronald Foundation" should instead be "Ronald Fountain."
I apologize for this mistake, and thank you in advance for making this adjustment for the purposes of processing this FOIL request.
