To Whom It May Concern:

On behalf of Documented and the Intercept, pursuant to the Oklahoma Open Records Act, I hereby request the following:

A list of pro-bono legal counsel firms and the services provided by them to the Attorney General office during the tenure of Scott Pruitt. The list should include the names of the firms, names of lawyers from those firms, details of services provided, and any lawsuits that resulted from such advice.

The requester is entitled to a fee waiver because he is a member of the news media, and because this request for records concerns activities or operations of the government. Disclosure of the requested records will likely increase public understanding of government operations since the requester has the ability and the intention, through the means described below, to effectively convey information contained within the requested records to a broad public audience. Requester is an investigative journalist and the co-director of Documented, an investigative watchdog and reporting group that explores the relationship between industry and government. Nick Surgey writes for the Intercept.

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,

Nick Surgey
Co-Director
Documented

From: Office of the Attorney General - Oklahoma
