Status
Completed

Communications

From: T. McElwee


To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the following records:

All records mentioning or pertaining to the late Dr. Harold Nelson Bornstein, private physician. An attached obituary shall serve as proof Bornstein has passed away in 2021; as such, privacy interests are diminished. Of particular interest is any documentation of investigation or complaint that would normally be reviewed for investigation, where Bornstein is author of said complaint, the subject of the complaint, as a witness or as consultant.

The public interest in any records held by the agency is overwhelming, as the subject was personal physician to the 45th President of the United States of America prior to his election, and has been a public figure who is the subject of several news articles.

To assist in the identification of records, please note the following identifiers:

First five digits of Social Security Number 078-38;
DOB: March 3, 1947;
POB: New York, NY;
Residence: Scarsdale, NY;
Physician License No: 127270;
Date of Licensure : 07/01/1976.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

T. McElwee

RE:  Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) Request Reference # G000042-012021
Dear Mr. McElwee:
This email is in response to the above-referenced FOIL request.
The Office of the Attorney General (“OAG”) has conducted a diligent search for the records that you have requested.
Please access this request in the NYS OAG FOIL Request Center to retrieve the records that respond to your request.
Please be advised that portions of the records are exempt from disclosure and have been redacted pursuant to:
• Public Officers Law § 87(2)(b), because their disclosure would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. You have a right to appeal the foregoing decision.  If you elect to do so, you must appeal in writing, within 30 days, to Kathryn Sheingold, Records Appeals Officer.  Your appeal can be sent by email to FOIL.Appeals@ag.ny.gov or by mail to State of New York, Office of the Attorney General, Division of Appeals and Opinions, The Capitol, Albany, New York 12224.  You can reach the Records Appeals Officer by telephone at (518) 776-2009. Please note that records, or portions thereof, that respond to your request are drawn from the opinions, statements, or other content provided by a complainant and do not necessarily reflect the views of the OAG.  You should not construe any information provided to you by this Office to imply the Attorney General’s endorsement, recommendation, or disapproval of a given company.

Any numerical or other data provided by the OAG is compiled by sources believed to be reliable.  However, because of the dynamic nature of this Office’s receipt and processing of complaint information, we cannot guarantee that this information is perfect.

When you review complaint information, you may wish to consider the company’s size and its volume of business transactions.  You should also note the nature of the complaints and a company’s responses to them, because that information may be equally, if not more, important than the number of complaints received by the OAG.
This FOIL request is now closed.
Sincerely, Abisola Fatade Assistant Attorney General
