Hello,

This is the first of several emails in response to your public records request. Because of the volume of responsive information I will transmit our responsive documents in batches. I will let you know when the final email batch has been sent.

One note about redactions: In certain instances the Department has redacted personal email addresses. In two documents, weekly reports from Katharine Petrucione to Phil Ginsburg, information has been redacted for either of the following reasons: 1) It is not responsive to the request; 2) it contains personal health information; 3) it contains information related to confidential personnel matters; or 4) it contains information related to pending litigation.
