From: Curtis Waltman

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to North Dakota Constitution, Article XI, Section 6, and the North Dakota Open Records Statute, N.D.C.C. § 44-04-18(1), I hereby request the following records:

All records pertaining to the involvement of the North Dakota Information Technology Department in either monitoring the Standing Rock NoDAPL protests occurring in Morton County, ND since August 2016, or in providing any means of helping to control the protest along with law enforcement. There have been several accounts of protesters tracking the IP addresses of remote Google account access attempts to the ND ITD. The following article released by the Electronic Frontier Foundation includes this information: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2016/12/investigating-law-enforcements-use-technology-surveil-and-disrupt-nodapl-water

As a member of the news media I would request a fee waiver be granted to me. My work has been featured in national outlets such as MuckRock News, and Motherboard. My work for Motherboard can be read in the following link: http://motherboard.vice.com/author/cwaltman

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 would request your response within ten (10) business days.

Sincerely,

Curtis Waltman
