Mr. Lipton,

We ran the search for your information and the search produced ~15 GB worth of data (searching for emails sent to/from the @CoreCivic domain and searching for the phrase CoreCivic in the emails) . Is there any way we can narrow you search? We are trying to determine the best method to get the info to you.
Thanks,

Hello Mr. Harrelson,

Thanks so much for your message. Would you be able to call me at some point tomorrow to discuss this request? The MuckRock office phone number is 617-299-1832. I would be interested in as many materials as possible, but I understand that there might be some difficulty in handling that much data; I would be happy to send along some CDs, a USB drive, or some other device, if that might make things easier.

Best wishes,
Beryl
