Substantial information

In her written response, Willis mentioned that her office had already provided “substantial information” concerning the federally sponsored initiatives. The letter added, “further, as I expressed to you in my letter dated February 23, 2024, this office is in the process of producing relevant documents to you on a rolling basis and is undertaking a good faith approach to provide you with responsive information about our federal grant funding.”

Additionally, her office expressed that Jordan’s “extensive document demands,” were deemed as unreasonable and uncommon, as fulfilling them would divert resources from the primary focus of prosecuting criminal activities.
