Dear Mr. Smathers,

This email responds to the automated status checks submitted for Case 76171. The case is still in our complex backlog queue, pending assignment to a first level review. Please be advised that, since the records you request are related to Intellipedia, it is likely that we will have to consult with other Agencies prior to release which could cause additional delays. If the documents are located for any of the referenced cases contain other Agency equities, it's possible that the first review could take at least 12-18 months. Please be advised that each case must go through two levels of review before a release determination can be made. Given the volume of our backlog and the fluctuation of queue placement due to consults from other agencies that predate your request, the estimated completion date is approximately 3 years.

We appreciate your patience thus far.
Regards,
Cindy B
