Good Afternoon Dr. Nevin,
Your case has been assigned to me and I have reviewed it and sent it to my boss for review. I am waiting on her feedback to see if she agrees with my recommended redactions, and then as always it goes to legal counsel to get their input. I have not ETA for you at this time, but I recommend that you keep checking and I will conduct a follow up on the status of my boss' review. Thank you.
