Final Decision FIC2015-690
In the Matter of a Complaint by
FINAL DECISION
David Osuch,
     Complainant
     against
Docket #FIC 2015-690
Commissioner, State of Connecticut,
Department of Correction; and
State of Connecticut, Department of Correction,
     Respondents
June 8, 2016

     The above-captioned matter was heard as contested case on January 22, 2016, at which time the complainant and the respondents appeared.  The complainant, who is incarcerated, appeared via teleconference, pursuant to the January 2004 memorandum of understanding between the Commission and the Department of Correction.  See Docket No. CV 03-0826293, Anthony Sinchak v. FOIC et al, Superior Court, J.D. of Hartford at Hartford, Corrected Order dated January 27, 2004 (Sheldon, J.).
     At the hearing, the respondents stated that they would mail to the complainant a copy of one short, conclusory email from Lt. Stuart to Lt. Acus, dated October 19, 2015, 3:21 p.m., with redactions of only the first names and email addresses of Correction officers.  There was also sworn testimony that, based upon a detailed search of paper and computerized records, the respondent Department has no other records responsive to the complainant’s request concerning his placement on Behavioral Observation Status on August 17, 2015.  The sworn testimony was that no incident report was filed.  However, there was also the suggestion that the University of Connecticut Correctional Managed Health Care probably maintains records responsive to the complainant’s request.  Based upon these representations and testimony, the complainant stated that he wished to withdraw his complaint.
     The Commission recommends the following order on the basis of the record:
     1. Based on the withdrawal of the complaint, the case is hereby dismissed.
Approved by Order of the Freedom of Information Commission at its regular meeting of June 8, 2016.
