So I made a post in the main ECU thread about putting in a FOIA request for the emails from that week.
"Email exchanges from September 10th, 11th and 12th 2018 between the Virginia Tech Athletic Department and the East Carolina Athletic Department related to the travel arrangements of the East Carolina Football team.
Letter from ECU University Counsel and Vice Chancellor for Legal Affairs Donna Gooden Payne to VT Legal Counsel Kay Heidbreder on Dec. 19 with regards to VT-ECU football series. And response letter from Kay Heidbreder on December 21st."
And well I got a response!
"Consistent with section 2.2-3704(F) of Virginia's Freedom of Information Act, Virginia Tech will charge you the actual cost incurred in accessing, duplicating, supplying, or searching for the records you have requested. We estimate that cost to be $334.96.
This estimate assumes a search of emails of the following employees of the Virginia Tech Athletic Department: Whit Babcock, Angie LIttlejohn, and Pete Moris. The search will include any emails to or from anyone with an ecu.edu email address and containing either the terms "travel" or "transportation." If there are other individuals' whose emails you are seeking or other search terms you wish to have applied, please advise and a new estimate will be provided."
UPDATE: Ok if y'all are serious about wanting to do this I figured the best way to do it on the up and up was to do a quick GoFundMe. So here it is! https://www.gofundme.com/f/vtecu-email-foia-cost
And as much as I want to see the emails, I dont $334 want them. So unless we all want to crowdfund this it might be where it ends, just like the series. And perhaps thats for the best for everyone.
