RE: Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Request #17421

I am the person designated by the Director of DIFS as the FOIA Coordinator under the Michigan Freedom of Information Act, MCL 15.231 et seq. In that capacity, I will have to deny your request because those records do not exist within this department. It is hereby certified that, to the best of the department's knowledge, information, and belief, records do not exist within the department under the description you provided or under another name reasonably known to the department.

Under the FOIA (MCL 15.240), you may submit a written appeal regarding the denial of any portion of your FOIA request to Patrick M. McPharlin, Director, Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services, 530 W. Allegan Street, 7th Floor, P.O. Box 30220, Lansing, Michigan 48909. Your appeal must include the word "appeal" and give your reason or reasons for reversal of the denial(s). You may also seek judicial review in the Michigan court of claims within 180 days after the department's notice of final determination to deny a request. If you prevail in court you may be awarded reasonable attorney fees, costs, and disbursements. If the court finds that the department has arbitrarily or capriciously violated FOIA, you may receive, in addition to actual or compensatory damages, punitive damages in the amount of $1,000.00.

Sincerely,

Karl Benghauser
FOIA Coordinator
