Re: PUBLIC RECORDS LAW REQUEST
Dear Ms. Dietz:
Under the Louisiana Public Records Law, I seek copies of all communications between New Orleans city officials and short-term rental platforms between January 1 and the date of this request.
It is my understanding you will make this information promptly available. Please include all physical and digital communications as responsive to this request. As this is a matter of public interest, I ask that you expedite the request.
Should you determine some documents are exempt from disclosure, it is my expectation you would release all segregable portions. If my request is denied in whole or part, I ask that you justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the Law.
Please direct all correspondence and documents to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or c/o The Wall Street Journal, 201 California St., Suite 1100, San Francisco, CA 94111. I can also be reached at 415-765-6124.
I look forward to your reply within three business days, as the statute requires.
