Mr. Steven D. Monté
Dear Mr. Monté:
You ask this office to reconsider our ruling in Open Records Letter No. 99-1636 (1999). Your request for reconsideration was assigned ID# 127248.
The Dallas Police Department (the "department") received a request for information pertaining to a shooting incident at the requestor's apartment complex. In Open Records Letter No. 99-1636, this office concluded that the department could not withhold the requested information under section 552.108 of the Government Code because the department had failed to timely request a ruling from this office. You assert that the department's request for a decision was timely submitted, and ask that we consider the merits of your original argument for withholding the requested information under section 552.108.
After reviewing your contentions, we conclude that you have not established the department's request was timely. We therefore reaffirm our previous ruling.
Rebecca L. Payne
