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 emails to or from R. Thomas Zoeller to or from the following domains:

sciencecom.org
ehsic.org
everettassociates.net
fenton.com

Please include emails from January 1, 2014 to the present.

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 there are fees, 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.

Sincerely,

Stephan Neidenbach

Dear Lillian,
I am in receipt of your public records request as detailed below and attached.

The Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. Ch. 66, § 10, along with its associated regulations, permits the University to estimate and assess the estimated cost of searching for the requested records or segregating exempt information from non-exempt information. I estimate that your request will take 10 hours. In accordance with the law, the University will waive the charges for the first 4 hours but will charge a fee of $150 (10 hours – 4 hour allowance x $25/hr) to complete this request. There will be no copying fee charged for this request as we expect to be able to provide the information to you electronically. In the event that actual costs exceed the estimate, I will bill you for the difference. If actual costs are less, I will refund the overpayment. When I receive your check made out to the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the amount of $150, I will compile the records responsive to your request.

Under Chapter 66 of the General Laws, you have the right to appeal our disposition of your request to the Supervisor of Public Records, Office of the Secretary of State, pre@sec.state.ma.us<mailto:pre@sec.state.ma.us> and the right to seek judicial review of an unfavorable decision by commencing a civil action in the superior court under subsection (c) of section 10A.

Thank you,
Christine

Muckrock should have sent it already. I believe the prior email was an automated message when it was mailed by them.
