    Dear Sunshine Request:
    As it happens, I did not understand that, but for the emails, a case history of each of these 26 cases is available in our on-line portal.
    These are the directions for the requester to use to pull the case histories. The case history for the first request is here.
    It will take some time to get through the emails. I will send them to you once completed.
    Please let me know if the requester has other questions.

    Good afternoon,
    I know that the department is working on it in conjunction with their other work. Unfortunately, I do not know when the department will complete its work. I will check and see if I can get an estimated completion date and get back to you.
