Dear Legal Beagle:

My firm serves as attorneys for the Village of Rosemont (the "Village"). This email is being written on behalf of the Village in response to your request under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act (the "FOIA"), 5 ILCS 140/1, et seq., that was received by the Village on November 2, 2021. You requested the following:
"- Any internal reference numbers including but not limited to case, document, filing, archival or docket
- Transcript from witness who first reported the incident
- Transcript of any related calls to 911
- Copies of any reports of threats to the Hyatt or events there within the same week."

Attached to this email should be a copy of the Village's records that are responsive to your request. Pursuant to Sections 7(1)(b), 7(1)(c), and 7(1)(d)(iv) of the FOIA, private information (e.g., driver's license numbers, personal phone numbers, social security numbers, personal email addresses, personal home addresses, and personal license plate numbers), personal information (e.g., dates of birth, victim's names and their identifying information, and other third-party names of persons referenced incidentally in the reports or suspects who were not arrested), and the identities of persons who file complaints with or provide information to law enforcement agencies have been redacted from the attached records.

The Village is also in possession of FBI records relating to this investigation. After consulting with the FBI, the Village is, on behalf of the FBI, not disclosing the FBI's records, pursuant to Section 7(1)(d)(i) of the FOIA, because disclosure would interfere with pending or actually and reasonably contemplated law enforcement proceedings conducted by a law enforcement agency.

To the extent that your FOIA request is being denied, the person responsible for the denial is Matthew Rose, who is one of the Village's attorneys.

To the extent that your FOIA request is being denied, you have the right to have the denial reviewed by the Public Access Counselor at the office of the Illinois Attorney General. The Public Access Counselor's address and telephone number are as follows:
