Communications

From: Liam Knox


To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Texas Public Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

A copy of all communications between employees and administrators at the University of Texas' Dell Medical School and Charles Nemeroff, a professor of psychiatry who currently serves as the acting chair of the Department of Psychiatry.

I would also like a copy of the employment contract between Nemeroff and UT Austin.

I request that I be properly classified as a news media requester. I am an intern for the Chronicle of Higher Education, and I am requesting this information in that editorial capacity.

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 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Liam Knox

I would also like to add to my request, a copy of all emails sent to Johnston or Fenves that include the keywords "Nemeroff," "Charles Nemeroff," "failure to disclose," "Glaxo," and "conflict of interest" from June 2018 to June 2019.

Thank you,

Hello,

I'd like to modify my request due to the high projected cost:

Please narrow your search to emails sent or received between August 2018 and January 2019, both for emails between Nemeroff and the specified UT Austin employees and for emails sent to or from Johnson and Fenves that include the specified keywords.

Please provide me with an updated cost estimate when ready.

Thank you,
