They're saying no and inviting me to narrow my request . 140 3(g). Something about not limiting it to a certain category . I requested all emails to and from a certain email address . I did not ask for a category for just all the emails to and from this address . Am I required to limit it to a category if it's only a small number of emails ? I thought they could say it was only on Julie burdensome if it was over 300 or 500 pages or some number like that . What if it's less than 100 pages ? Then do I still have to ask for a category ? I thought for you can only make me require a category if it was more than 500 pages
The answer is - it depends. Who is the email sender? Who is the email recipient? Narrow your inquiry to those relevant to your case or situation.,
Although AVVO describes this site as providing free legal advice, it is really a simple Q&A forum. The volunteer attorneys provide general answers. No specific legal advice is given here and no attorney-client relationship is established. For precise direction and legal advice, please consult in person with an attorney in your area. Be sure to bring all relevant paperwork with you.
Unduly burdensome is not always a volume thing. Often it is a search parameters thing. Narrowing invitations are a part of sound FOIA practice and should be taken seriously. As I noted in a similar thread, well crafted initial requests are the Keys to the Kingdom. Breadth and volume are often overrated.
