Re: Acknowledgement of Receipt of Your Public Records Request 16-304 Received September 12, 2016

Dear Stephan Neidenbach:

This letter is to acknowledge receipt of your Public Records Request 16-304 seeking:

All emails to Charles Benbrook from gmolist@googlegroups.com covering January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2014.

We hope to complete our review of records responsive to your Public Records Request and respond to you by October 12, 2016, however, more time may be necessary.

Your request for WSU records is not confidential. All Public Records Requests are public records. The records responsive to a request may contain names, identifiers, or information about other people (such as employees, former employees, students, former students, or third parties). WSU may send a notice to people named in the records informing them that their name, identifiers, or other information about them will be disclosed under the Public Records Act and provide them sufficient time in which to seek legal counsel to determine whether to file a motion in Whitman County Superior Court to enjoin disclosure. When we send such notices to people named in records, we also provide a copy of the request with the notice.

The University charges fifteen cents a page for photocopies or to scan paper records to create a pdf in accordance with RCW 42.56.120, WAC 504-45-070(1), and WAC 44-14-07003.

Please contact this office if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Public Records Office

Although we are still trying to determine whether we have Charles Benbrook emails from that far back since he is no longer an employee, we believe the date given previously is still accurate for a response. Depending on the number of emails/pages we find, it may be a first installment.

From: wsu.pubrecords

We still anticipate that you will get an first installment of records today.

I apologize, I'm still working on this but you may not have it until tomorrow.

Re: Response -- Your Public Records Request 16-304

Dear Stephan Neidenbach:

The enclosed link will provide you access to download our 1st installment response to your Public Records Request 16-304 seeking:

All emails to Charles Benbrook from gmolist@googlegroups.com covering January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2014.

Also enclosed is an index identifying information that has been redacted and the legal reasons for each such action in accordance with the Public Records Act (RCW 42.56).

This concludes the University's 1st installment response to your request for public records.

Please note that Charles Benbrook is no longer a WSU employee and his email account has been deleted. Our Central I.T. Department is not able to recover any of his emails. Public Records was in possession of 2014 emails due to your public records request 15-279. Records we received responsive to that request (for all of Dr. Chuck Benbrook's 2014 emails) was searched for responsive records for this request (included in this installment). We are still investigating to see if any of the 2012 or 2013 emails were kept by his department. However, messages from gmolist@googlegroups.com to Charles Benbrook may not have been considered relevant to WSU business for retention purposes.

We hope to complete our review of the 2nd installment of records responsive to your Public Records Request (if records exist) and respond to you by November 15, 2016, however, more time may be necessary.

Please contact this office if you have any questions.

Thank you for all of your help in this. The initial request in 2015 is missing many of these emails. Was it not completed?

From: Kalasz, Stephanie Kay

The person who dealt with that request retired and I started last November. I just used emails pulled from that request and since we have changed from Mac to PC and how we provide information it will take some time for me to research what was and possibly what was not sent but I'll let you know.

Stephanie Kalasz
Public Records Coordinator

From: Kalasz, Stephanie Kay

I discussed this with our attorney and he said that Dr. Benbrook argued that many of the emails were personal and not related to WSU business so that may have been why they were not released. We are extremely busy right now so it will be awhile until I have the time to go back to investigate further.
