From: T. McElwee

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the following records:

Any and all records concerning claims against the City that have been settled or ruled meritorious by the Office of Comptroller, where the claim mentions or concerns the conduct of NYPD Detective Louis Eppolito or NYPD Detective Steven Caracappa.

Please note that both Louis Eppolito and Steven Caracappa are now both known to be deceased (see attached article for proof). As such, privacy concerns are moot for the two named persons (under both Civil Rights Law 50-a and/or exemptions of the NY Freedom of Information Law) are now moot and the records should be released.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.
