To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

A log of all FOIA requests made in fiscal year 2013.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.

Sincerely,

Jason Smathers

Re: FOIA-2014-00472

Dear FOIA Appeals Authority:

On October 21, 2013, I requested a log of all FOIA requests made in fiscal year 2013 from the Executive Office for United States Attorneys. This request was denied by letter dated January 17, 2014. I appeal.

The denial letter states that “[I] have requested records concerning a third party (or third parties).” Further, the letter says it would be a violation of the privacy act to release a FOIA log.

I agree it is appropriate to use a (b)(6) redaction for the portions of the FOIA log where the name of a requester is listed when the request is governed by the Privacy Act. However, requester names are generally released for FOIA requests, and it is appropriate to do so. Further, there is clearly segregable portions of the FOIA log that are not exempt such as status of request, open date, close date, description, etc.

For the reasons herein, and all other reasons deemed appropriate by the appeals authority, I appeal.

Regards,
Jason Smathers
