Mr. Perez:

I apologize for any confusion, but we did not receive your November 3, 2017 FOIA request. I am in receipt of a letter day December 14, 2017, and this email dated December 18, 2017. It appears that all three requests ask for the same pubic records – “emails exchanged between officials at the South Carolina Attorney General's Office and individuals affiliated with the Rule of Law Defense Fund, the Republican Attorneys General Association, the Judicial Crisis Network and Wellspring Committee. We are seeking communications exchanged between May 1, 2017 and Nov. 3, 2017.”

I am in the process of reviewing this request.

Thank you,
