We have an open records email address but this is sufficient as I am the only person at the office who would have any relevant information on this particular topic. I am away from the office on vacation which supposedly will be all week. However, I will return to the office tomorrow July 2, 2020 and research our records to try and provide what you have requested.

Mr. Lipton:

Any type of litigation brought against the Glynn County Sheriff's Office is initially referred to the Glynn County Attorney's Office. That Office will often contract the work out to a local law firm. Most of the litigation brought against us are alleged 42 U.S.C. 1983 civil rights violations. The Sheriff's Office has prevailed in most if not all of the cases brought against it in the time frame of your concern. If cases end up being "settled", we, the Sheriff's Office often do not know the end result of the case.

To be more direct in my answer I am saying that we, the Sheriff's Office, do not have any documents responsive to your request at this time.

Please let me know if you have additional questions or any further requests.



Ron Corbett, Undersheriff
