To Whom It May Concern:

This is an appeal of the rejection of FOIA 14-OPS-034, in which I requested National Operations Center reporting pertaining to the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

I appeal the wholesale rejection of the requested records, as portions of the records that ought not to interfere with law enforcement proceedings are almost certainly segregable, such that portions of the requested records, at least, ought to be releasable. NOC reports are incredibly segregable by virtue of being compiled from a wide range of information sources.

For this and any other reasons deemed relevant by the appeals authority, I request that this FOIA be remanded back to the Office of Operations Coordination and Planning for further processing and immediate release of the requested records.

Thank you,

Shawn Musgrave
