Some FOIA questions:
When your FOIA request response is "we have no such documents or records" even though you are more than reasonably sure they do have what was specificaly requested in your FOIA - what can you do?
Is there an appeal process?
Can they be sued for damages (the cost of aquiring the requested information from another more costly source) if subsequently it is shown or they admit that they actually do have the requested information?
Can you ask in your FOIA to be allowed to review large files on site and tag the pages you would like to have copied in order to reduce the cost of copying the entire file?
How can you challenge the response that the information requested is not subject to FOIA disclosure?
What can you do when it is claimed that the estimated cost of complying with your FOIA request is so high as to be prohibative?
