Dear Records Access Appeals Officer

In late November 2018, I submitted four requests for email records containing certain keywords sent by or to Katherine Lapp, one request for each quarter of the year 2005.

This request was acknowledged by your office in a letter dated December 5, 2018. The letter estimated a response within sixty days, which is three time the normal statutory limit.

Since then, 434 business days have elapsed.

Your office has not responded to thirteen requests for updates over that time period.

My requests have been constructively denied.

I hereby appeal the denial.

Please explain why the requested information falls squarely within a FOIL exemption by articulating a particularized and specific justification for denying access, or provide access to the records, within ten business days as required by law.

Sincerely

Joy Corado
