From: Phil Mocek

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to RCW Ch. 42.56 (Public Records Act), I hereby request the following records:

Lists or spreadsheets compiling and detailing claims in which the City of Seattle defended Seattle Police Department staff, including resolution of suits, time and money dedicated to those defenses, etc., since January 1, 2013. This should include records with information about claims and notices of claim targeting SPD staff regardless of whether lawsuit was filed, as well as amounts paid in related settlements or verdicts.

In case it is helpful in identifying responsive records, please note that I received similar records from your office, covering 1998 through mid-2013, in late 2013 (your identifier: PDR# 13-112). Those are all published on the Web at <https://www.muckrock.com/foi/seattle-69/city-attorneys-tracking-of-legal-defense-of-police-officers-6838/#files>. I hope to bring the set of records up-to-date with final (full, end-of-year) versions of the 2013 records, 2014 through 2016, and year-to-date for 2017.

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 look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Phil Mocek
