Hello,

I am writing to follow up on FOIA Attorney Mark Peterson’s November 22 correspondence, indicating that the Office of General Counsel would be sending out the agency’s response to request #FOIA-2014-00103 “mid-week, next-week”—which corresponded, approximately, to November 27.

Did the FTC in fact send out a response?

Please acknowledge receipt.
