Communications

From: Michael Morisy

To Whom It May Concern:

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

Any manuals, documents or other written guidance used to access or analyze data gathered by programs developed or deployed by Carrier IQ. Please query any departments or groups that routinely work with mobile and wireless carriers in monitoring, deciphering, intercepting or otherwise accessing electronic communications.

In addition, I ask for expedited processing as this is a matter of immediate news interest: The existence of Carrier IQ's software was recently disclosed and has immediate ramifications on constitutionally protected privacy rights.

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,

Michael Morisy

The fact that files are located in "located in law enforcement records" isn't enough to exempt all requested materials.

Please re-process this request and provide releasable, segrable information, excluding only the portions of those documents that would demonstrably endanger any current investigations.

Thanks,

Michael
