Because responsive records, if any, may contain information which is exempt from disclosure under the public records laws, the records must be reviewed by the Departments legal staff before being made available for inspection and copying. At this time, I do not know how long it will take to gather and review responsive documents. We will do so expeditiously and notify you when the records are available. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me at 614466-7014, or via e-mail at rrmathews@dps.state.oh.us . Sincerely, Robin R. Mathews Associate Legal Counsel cc: Jeff Maute
