To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:
All annual reports submitted to the General Court by the 11 District Attorney's Offices pursuant to MGL c272, 99R -- these reports are likely entitled, "Annual Report of Wiretap Interceptions."
Please include reports as far back as they are available.
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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 10 business days, as the statute requires.
To Mr. Shawn Musgrave,
I write in response to your public records request, which was received by webmail to the Massachusetts District Attorneys Association (MDAA) on July 24, 2013.
Please note that MDAA does not have any documents responsive to your request for “annual reports submitted to the General Court by the 11 District Attorney’s Offices…likely to be entitled, ‘Annual Report of Wiretap Interceptions.’”
In short, MDAA is not the keeper of any such records. MDAA is not a District Attorney’s Office, and it neither creates nor collects such reports. Any reports that may be created, compiled or filed by the District Attorney Offices likely are in the possession of the individual District Attorneys.
In an effort to assist you with your search, please find on this link the address to each of the 11 District Attorneys: http://www.mass.gov/mdaa/district-attorneys/offices/
