Respondents

October 27, 1999

 

††††††††††† The above-captioned matter was scheduled to be heard as a contested case on July 8, 1999, 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 July 8, 1999 hearing, the respondents provided additional records to the complainant for his review.

 

No withdrawal was received following an opportunity for the complainant to review the records provided on July 8, 1999, and an opportunity to review as well other records within the custody of the respondents concerning First Step, Inc., which may not have been within the terms of the complainantsí original request. Accordingly, the above-captioned matter was scheduled for a continued hearing to be held on September 16, 1999. At that time, the respondents appeared but the complainant failed to appear. While a full evidentiary record has, therefore, not been compiled in this case, the Commission notes the substantial efforts that the respondents have made to satisfy their legal obligations pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act.

 

††††††††††† 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 for failure to prosecute.

 

Approved by Order of the Freedom of Information Commission at its regular meeting of

October 27, 1999.
