From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

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

Copies of any lists, databases, or reports that detail the number of material witness warrants used by the US Marshals Service since Jan. 1, 2013. This should include any internal database or other mechanism that USMS uses to keep track of its warrants. If a database, report, or other document containing responsive information regarding the number of material witness warrants exists, please also provide me with all other information included in that document(s) or database.

I also ask that all fees be waived for this request, as I am a journalist employed by the Boston Globe and MuckRock and I intend to use the requested information to educate the public on federal law enforcement practices. I am an individual requester, a member of the news media acting in the public interest, and I have no commercial interest in the requested documents, nor any intention to profit off of them.

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,

Todd Feathers
