From: Taylor Amarel Scott

To whom this may concern,

I respectfully appeal this decision. There has been ongoing correspondence between myself and the NYDFS discussing how these records require "specialized review". However, in the latest letter it claims there are "no records" responsive to my request.

Could you please clarify if there are truly "no records" and if so, why did certain documents require "specialized review". Finally, could you please clarify if any exemptions were used?

Thank you,
Taylor Scott Amarel
