Final Decision FIC2012-217
In the Matter of a Complaint by
FINAL DECISION
Robert Milne,
     Complainant
     against
Docket #FIC 2012-217
Chief, Police Department, Town of
West Hartford; and Police Department,
Town of West Hartford,
     Respondents
January 9, 2013

     The above-captioned matter was heard as a contested case on October 4, 2012 at which time the complainant and the respondents appeared, stipulated to certain facts and presented testimony, exhibits and argument on the complaint. 
     A hearing officer’s report, dated November 28, 2012, was issued on December 7, 2012 which recommended that the complaint be dismissed because the complainant’s refusal to provide the information to facilitate compliance with his own request was unreasonable and served only to obfuscate compliance. 
     However, by letter dated December 17, 2012, the complainant withdrew his complaint. The Commission takes administrative notice of such letter.
     The following order by the Commission is hereby recommended on the basis of the record concerning the above-captioned complaint:
     1.  Based on the complainant’s letter of withdrawal, the complaint is hereby dismissed with prejudice. 
     Approved by Order of the Freedom of Information Commission at its regular meeting of January 9, 2013.
