Ms. Lopez:

I'm following up on the last communication I received from UT saying that by September 8th the University would provide a disposition on the release of records responsive to a request I made on August 4th. I have not heard anything from the University since August 25th.

I found the University's appeal to the Texas Attorney General and to third parties to be peculiar, as well as the particular exemptions asserted.

What can you tell me about the status of this request?

Sincerely,

Robert Galbraith
