1. The Department of Justice's Office of Litigation Support is responsible for the production of Administrative Records in electronic format. On Friday, May 3, 2013, during the conversion process, the Office of Litigation Support encountered significant technical issues which prevented the Administrative Record from being produced. Federal Defendants immediately informed Plaintiffs' counsel when they were notified of such issues, and provided them with an index of the documents being produced in the Administrative Record. The Office of Litigation Support is currently taking corrective actions.
