Your request (attached) has been forwarded to me for response. I have some questions regarding the scope of your request, but I am hoping they may turn out to be academic and not require resolution based on what I write below.
I received a similar request to yours (prior to yours) that has been narrowed down to:
Emails to or from each of the five Supervisors and Mike Callagy in the last three months that contain the terms: “Racop”, “Logansport”, “batmobile” or “Anagnostou”.
That requestor is also interested in emails between Steve Wagstaffe and Mike Callagy or the Board. Those will also be provided if they exist. The requestor was also interested in all emails to or from the Sheriff with those terms and I previously conducted an equivalent search and didn’t find any.
Because that Public Records Act request came to me first and underlaps with yours, I am going to work on that one first and then provide you with the same documents I provide that requestor. My hope is that, that search will provide you what you are seeking and/or help us work together to design any subsequent searches. So my proposal is that I do that and then you let me know after you have reviewed that material if you are seeking additional searches. Does that work?
I would observe that although they will be captured by my search, the other requestor is not interested in emails from members of the Public expressing their views of the case. If YOU WANT those emails I need to know NOW so I can flag them when I am conducting my review?
I will observe that communications with the County Attorney’s Office that exist (if any) would likely be exempt under Section 6254(k) of the Government Code and the attorney-client privilege as well as the work product doctrine. Further any emails with the District Attorney that reflect the investigation itself would be exempt under Section 6254(f). Both categories would be withheld from any production.
