When do or don't I ask the FBI for the records of more than one person in the same file?
1 answer from Jack R-W.
Last night, I was watching Masters of Sex on Showtime and realized that, at least as far as I know, there’s no FBI file in the wild for the real William Masters and Virginia Johnson. Given the era, you’d think that they were investigated, so I figured I should do a FOIA…but I don’t know if I should do one for Masters and Johnson or separate ones for each of them. Given the circumstances, I’m guessing I should just do one FOIA, but I wanted to make sure.
Also, does it vary at all by the agency?
It’s up to you, really. If you ask for two people and they deem them to be two different requests, they’ll split them, probably.
