(February 2021) Request for Asheville, NC City Attorney and District Attorney body camera letters/emails as of 02/17/21

Hello City of Asheville, NC Government,

I'd like to make a public records request for the following information under NC Public Records Law:

Please provide any emails and letters sent by the Asheville City Attorney's office of John Maddox to the District Attorney's office of Todd Williams, that referenced body camera video, releasing body camera video, or Officer Sorangelo.

The time frame for the emails and letters I would like included are specifically from 02/01/2020 through 02/17/21 (or the date on which the query is performed).

Thank you for your assistance!

Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

Editor’s Note 02/24/21: The above request has been revised for some clarify. Additionally, please note –

Sunshine Request does not control if / when Government entities will confirm receipt, begin processing, complete, or deny requests we submit to them via our website. If you would like to make a request that is time sensitive, we recommend that you reach out to the appropriate government entity directly for assistance with a request, rather than submitting through our site.

Sunshine Request is run by a very small team. We do our best to review and send in requests to the appropriate entities as quickly as we are able, and it is up to the Government agency to determine the timeline and speed with which the request can be processed. We generally try to follow up on requests once every 1 – 2 weeks as we’re able, until the government agency has confirmed that the request has been received and is being processed (and there is some timeline for completion), and we will wait to follow up again during the time period they specify.


Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:

☀️ Requests that are incomplete, non-specific, or vague.
☀️ Requests that are only informational questions [rather than a specific request for public records], and requests that are not clearly addressed to government entities.
☀️ Requests that include profanity, personal statements, opinions, possibly defamatory statements, or other unnecessary info that is not relevant to making a records request.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to write and make a successful request. If you have additional questions about our site or how to make requests, please check out our FAQs or Policies page.

Thank you for using www.sunshinerequest.com!
