To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to Utah’s Government Records Access and Management Act (“GRAMA”), I hereby request the following records:
Copies of all available emails exchanged between officials at the Utah Attorney General's Office and individuals affiliated with the Rule of Law Defense Fund, the Republican Attorneys General Association, the Judicial Crisis Network and Wellspring Committee. We are seeking communications exchanged between May 1, 2017 and Nov. 3, 2017.
Please understand “officials” to include individuals holding the following titles: Attorney General; Chief Civil Deputy; Solicitor General; Chief Federal Deputy & General Counsel; Chief of Staff; and Director of Communications.
For email addresses affiliated with the Rule of Law Defense Fund, please use email addresses that contain the domain: “@ruleoflawdefensefund.org.”
For email addresses affiliated with the Republican Attorneys General Association, please use email addresses that contain the domain: “@RepublicanAGs.com.”
For email addresses affiliated with the Wellspring Committee, please use “firstname.lastname@example.org.”
If your agency is aware of any additional email addresses associated with the Rule of Law Defense Fund, the Republican Attorneys General Association, Judicial Crisis Network or the Wellspring Committee, please include them in this search as well.
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 10 business days, as the statute requires.

To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following GRAMA request, copied below, and originally submitted on Nov. 6, 2017. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
Hello Mr. Perez,
Attached is the response letter for your recent record request received on November 6, 2017.
Utah Attorney General's Office
Notice: This email may contain confidential information protected from disclosure by attorney-client privilege or attorney work product doctrine. If you are not the intended recipient, please contact the sender so that confidentiality may be maintained. Only information visible in this message or attachments, and not, for example, metadata, is intended to be reviewed or used.
I am concerned that your office may not have provided all documents responsive to my public records request. Please see the attached file documenting an exchange between the Rule of Law Defense Fund and Republican attorneys general, including Utah's attorney general, in July 2017.
The attached record references a panel on financial technology and also includes an item about "Current FOIA Requests Reported." Both of these items appear to be related to official business. Please note that it says Attorney General Reyes specifically requested the call.
I am requesting that your office conduct a new search for records responsive to my request.
