Connecticut Insurance Department -- Cigna emails

David Sirota filed this request with the Connecticut Insurance Department of Connecticut.


From: David Sirota

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"), I hereby request the following records:

- Specific emails to or from employees of the Office of the Insurance Commissioner and/or Office of the Deputy Commissioner to or from the following domain names: “,” “,” "," and/or “” The specific emails I request are those from 1/1/17 to the present.

I also request that, if possible and pursuant to Conn. Gen. Stat. § 1-212(d), fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest and not made for commercial gain. The requested documents will be processed by a representative of the news media/press and made available to the public at Newsweek/IBT is an award winning journalism. The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. The requested records will contribute significantly to the public’s understanding of insurance regulatory policy, and how that policy is shaped.

Please search for responsive records regardless of format. I request the information in a machine-processable format, such as a spreadsheet (CSV or XLS) or word processor (TXT, DOC, DOCX) format. It can be provided by email, thumb drive, or CD. If it is unavailable in any other format, an OCRed PDF (i.e. searchable) will do.

If it is your position that any portion of the requested records is exempt from disclosure, I request that you provide it with a Vaughn Index/privilege log of those documents.

In the event some portions of the requested records are properly exempt from disclosure, please disclose any reasonably segregable non-exempt portions of the requested records. If it is your position that a document contains non-exempt segments, but that those non-exempt segments are so dispersed throughout the document as to make segregation impossible, please state what portion of the document is non-exempt, and how the material is dispersed throughout the document. If a request is denied in whole, please state specifically that it is not reasonable to segregate portions of the record for release.

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.
