To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information request, copied below, and originally submitted on April 25, 2012. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed.
Thank you for your help.
Dear Mr. Hassett:
Please be advised that information regarding the submission of FOIL requests is available at our public website link: http://www.nycourts.gov/foil/.
You are requesting court records and information related to court cases, which is not governed by FOIL. See Public Officers Law 86(3). As explained in detail, access to court records is governed by section 255 of the Judiciary Law, and such requests should be directed to the clerk of the court where the matter was handled. The contact information for the clerks of the court also is on our website.
Section 255, however, requires that you request a specific record, to permit the clerk of the court to search for any responsive records, determine whether the records are subject to public disclosure, and assess the requisite search and copy fees, pursuant to CPLR Article 80.
Very truly yours,
Assistant Deputy Counsel
