FREEDOM OF INFORMATION COMMISSION
|In the Matter of a Complaint by||FINAL DECISION|
|Tracy A. Marlow,|
|against||Docket #FIC 1998-055|
|Hugh F. McManus, Chief,
Police Department, Town of Darien;
and Darien Police Department, Town
|Respondents||July 22, 1998|
The above-captioned matter was scheduled to be heard as a contested case on June 5, 1998, at which time the complainant and the respondents appeared in order to present testimony and argument on the complaint.
At an informal conference prior to the June 8, 1998 hearing, the complainant and the respondents reached the terms of an agreement in resolution of this contested case. The parties agreed that the respondents would prepare a supplement to their incident report 98-1745, dated January 31, 1998, which supplement would substitute the phrase [d]ue to Marlows behavior in lieu of the similar phrase in the January 31, 1998 report which also characterized the behavior. The respondents will provide a copy of such supplement to the complainant. Based upon this agreement, the complainant informed the Commission that he wished to withdraw his complaint.
The Commission warmly commends both the complainant and the respondents for working successfully to negotiate a non-litigated settlement of their earlier differences.
The following order by the Commission is hereby recommended on the basis of the record concerning the above-captioned complaint:
1. The complaint is hereby dismissed.
Approved by Order of the Freedom of Information Commission at its regular meeting of July 22, 1998.
