Re: Freedom of Information Act Appeal

Dear Director:

This is an appeal under the Freedom of Information Act.

By letter dated July 9, 2007, I submitted a FOIA request for records “pertaining to and/or captioned: Clarence M. Kelley, FBI Director."

My request was initially assigned Request No. 1088203-000 on December 7, 2007, but on January 7, 2008, it was reassigned as Request No. 1104839. By way of a telephone conversation on April 3, 2008, I was informed by FBI representative Tonya Robinson that the estimated scope of responsive records was approximately 58,000 pages.

By letter dated June 22, 2008, the FBI released to me 493 pages. The letter indicated that redactions had been made due to the applicability of FOIA Exemptions b(2), b(6) and b(7)(C).

The letter did not reference any other responsive records that had been identified

I hereby appeal the adequacy of the FBI’s search and the redactions made with respect to the 493 pages already released. I also am requesting that any documents or records produced in response to this appeal be provided in electronic (soft-copy) form wherever possible. Acceptable formats are .pdf, .jpg, .gif, .tif.

For your convenience, I have enclosed a copy of my original FOIA request.

Thank you for your consideration of this appeal.

Sincerely,

Dr. Ivan Greenberg
2105 Wallace Ave. #5A
Bronx, NY 10462
