A copy of reviewed closing case files or reviews that hinge on, mention, or involve the use of the Twitter social network in regards to mediated workplace disputes between 2009 and the date this agency receives this request.

These documents or a significant subset of them have been released in some form to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and if it's more expeditious to release them in the same format I accept that release.

This release was mentioned here:

I request this request be expedited, as it is currently of high public interest and importance as workplace policy and considerations of liability are determined.
