To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Ohio Open Records Law, I hereby request the following records:
Copies of all reports, lists, databases, or individual documents created or updated since Jan. 1, 2009 by the Columbus City Attorney that detail civil lawsuits brought against the city's police department. This should include any documentation mechanism the City Attorney's Office uses to track lawsuits. It should also include any documents that the City Attorney submits to local, state, or federal agencies listing the number and/or status of lawsuits brought against the police department.
This request should be construed to include documents compiled quarterly, annually, or in other increments as well as documents or databases that contain responsive information over a longer time span.
I request that all fees be waived for this request because I am a journalist -- employed by the Boston Globe and MuckRock -- and intend to use the requested information to educate the public.
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 would request your response within ten (10) business days.
Attached is the Columbus City Attorney's Office response to your public records request.
