Lists of civil lawsuits brought against Memphis PD

Todd Feathers filed this request with the Memphis Law Division, City Attorney of Memphis, TN.


From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Tennessee's Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Copies of all reports, lists, databases, or individual documents created or updated since Jan. 1, 2009 by the Law Division or City Attorney's office that detail tort or civil rights lawsuits brought against the city's police department. This should include any documentation mechanism the Law Division or City Attorney uses to track lawsuits. It should also include any documents that the Law Division or City Attorney submits to local, state, or federal agencies listing the number and/or status of lawsuits brought against the police department.

This request should be construed to include documents compiled quarterly, annually, or in other increments as well as documents or databases that contain responsive information over a longer time span.

I request that all fees be waived for this request because I am a journalist -- employed by the Boston Globe and MuckRock -- and intend to use the requested information to educate the public.

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 7 business days, as the statute requires.


Todd Feathers

From: City of Memphis
