To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:
-Any and all complaints filed against former Middlesex County Juvenile Courts Judge Margaret S. Fearey.
-Any and all letters sent to Judge Fearey notifying her of a complaint or pending investigation, and any responses she sent to the commission as a result of those letters.
-Any and all documentation of disciplinary action taken against Judge Fearey during her career.
I also request that all fees be waived as I am a journalist employed by the Boston Globe. I intend to use any pertinent information I receive as a result of this request to educate the public on the workings of the state's judicial system, and so this request clearly qualifies as a matter of public interest.
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 calendar days, as the statute requires.
The request has been rejected, with the agency stating that the information or document(s) requested are exempt from disclosure.
