From: CJ Ciaramella

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

- All files regarding the FBI investigation into the death of Eric Garner, who was killed in 2014 by an NYPD officer. Proof of death is not required, as his death has been widely reported:

For background, the Justice Department announced on July 16, 2019 that it would not be pursuing civil rights charges against Daniel Pantaleo, the officer who killed Garner, thus officially closing the investigation. I therefore request all disclosable records associated with the investigation.

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 20 business days, as the statute requires.
