You must actually specify which unusual circumstances apply. Courts have upheld a failure to do so as a reason to disregard agencies' claims on the matter.

It is, in fact, NOT specified in the letter. The letter states that the "unusual circumstances include one or more of the following scenarios." It does not specify which actually applies. I would like to give you the chance to rectify this error before I file an appeal, notify OGIS and draw attention to this online as you know I'm wont to do.
