Awaiting Acknowledgement


From: Kailin Wang

To Whom It May Concern:

We request under the San Francisco Sunshine Ordinance (Ordinance) and the California Public Records Act (CPRA):

>>>>>>>"Request A: an electronic copy, in the original electronic format, with all e-mail headers, metadata, attachments, appendices, exhibits, and inline images, except those explicitly exempted by the Ordinance" INCLUDING bcc records (which are required to be included as as settled by SOTF 19044 complaint) of: **ALL emails sent or received by now-former Assistant District Attorney Donald Dubain between October 1, 2019 and October 26, 2021**

Message-Id’s should uniquely identify a particular email on your email servers/services. These may be emails the City sent or received.

We remind you of your obligations to provide electronic records in the original format you hold them in. Therefore, e-mails exported in the .eml or .msg format with all non-exempt headers, metadata, attachments, etc. are best.

However, if you choose to convert emails, for example, to PDF or printed format, to easily redact them, you must ensure that you have preserved the full content of the original email record (as specified in request "A"), which contains many detailed headers beyond the generally used From/To/Subject/Sent/etc. If you instead provide PDFs or printed emails with only a few of the headers or lacking attachments/images, and therefore withhold the other headers/attachments without justification, you may be in violation of SF Admin Code 67.26, 67.27, Govt Code 6253(a),6253.9, and/or 6255, and we may challenge your decision

If my request is denied in whole or in part, I ask that you justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the law. I will also expect you to release all segregable portions of otherwise exempt material. I reserve the right to appeal your decision to withhold any information or deny a waiver of fees.

Though this request is not burdensome, especially from a technical perspective, I request that all records be made available on a rolling basis, rather than all at once when matching records are available.

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. If you determine certain records would require fees, please instead provide the required notice of which of those records are available and non-exempt for inspection in-person if we so choose.

I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment to if available or USB drive if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 24 hours & fulfillment within no more than 10 calendar days as the statute requires.
