To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
All emails, memos, reports, or other written or digital records or communications, sent or created by ATF Special Agent Derek J. Hill between May 1, 2016 and May 1, 2017.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, 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.
To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information Act request, copied below, and originally submitted on Aug. 4, 2019. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
To whom it may concern,
This denial of my request is improper and I would like to appeal it. Derek Hill's role as a special agent is not merely an allegation as you claim but is public knowledge via court records and media reports. The highly newsworthy involvement of Special Agent Hill in various cases of national concern means that the release of his work product is in the public interest. Please proceed with producing records responsive to this request.
