Attached is the response of this agency to your request for records.
Public Information Officer
ND OFFICE OF ATTORNEY GENERAL
Wayne Stenehjem, Attorney General
600 E. Boulevard Avenue | Dept. 125 | Bismarck, ND 58505
Just to be clear: your office maintains that *either* the records do not exist, or they are not in the possession of the AG's office. If you are aware that the records exist in another state agency or office, could you kindly direct me to that agency? Thank you.
In fact, I see that your office does accept consumer complaints, as per this web page:
Could you clarify whether you performed a search of your complaints database for the records I asked for?
Of course we performed a search.
Please refer to the response.
I will not respond further.
