Additionally, this email further notifies you of the closure of your request in this office. No further action will be taken concerning the above mentioned subject. Thank you for your patience while we processed your request.

If you are dissatisfied with my action on this request, you may appeal by writing to the Director, Office of Information and Privacy, United States Department of Justice, 1425 New York Avenue NW, Suite 11050, Washington, D.C. 20530-0001, within 60 days from the date of this letter. Both the letter and the envelope should be clearly marked "Freedom of Information Act Appeal." In the event you are dissatisfied with the results of any such appeal, judicial review will thereafter be available to you in the United States District Court for the judicial district in which you reside or have your principal place of business, or in the District of Columbia.

For your information, Congress excluded three discrete categories of law enforcement and national security records from the requirements of the FOIA. See 5 U.S.C. § 552(c) (2006 and Supp. IV (2010). This response is limited to those records that would be subject to the requirements of the FOIA. This is a standard notification that is given to all our requesters and should not be taken as an indication that excluded records do, or do not, exist.
