below:

 

There are no records responsive to your request.

 

Should you disagree with my finding, please allow me the opportunity to
converse with you for potential further clarification before proceeding
with steps listed below.

 

If you feel a record has been denied or omitted, please see information
below as to you options:

 

C.47:1A-6 Proceeding to challenge denial of access to record.

A person who is denied access to a government record by the custodian of
the record, at the option of the requester, may:

 

- Institute a proceeding to challenge the custodian's decision by filing
an action in Superior Court which shall be heard in the vicinage where it
is filed by a Superior Court Judge who has been designated to hear such
cases because of that judge's knowledge and expertise in matters relating
to access to government records; or

 

- In lieu of filing an action in Superior Court, file a complaint with the
Government Records Council established pursuant to section 8 of P.L. 2001,
c.404 (C.47:1A-7).

 

The right to institute any proceeding under this section shall be solely
that of the requestor.  Any such proceeding shall proceed in a summary or
expedited manner.  The public agency shall have the burden of proving that
the denial of access is authorized by law.  If it is determined that
access has been improperly denied, the court or agency head shall order
that access be allowed.  A requestor who prevails in any proceeding shall
be entitled to reasonable attorney's fee.
