Dear Mr. Johnston:

This is the email address for the submission of FOIL requests for the administrative records of the Office of Court Administration. This Office does not maintain court records, nor are court records subject to FOIL. See Public Officers Law ยง 86.

Rather, access to court records is governed by section 255 of the Judiciary Law, and the custodian of court records typically is the clerk of the court or county clerk where the proceedings were handled. Additional information regarding access to court records is available at the following link: http://ww2.nycourts.gov/foil/CourtRecords.shtml

You should submit your request to the clerk of the court where these matters were handled. Section 255 requests should identify the specific records sought, to permit the clerk to conduct a search, determine what responsive records exist, and assess the search, copy, and certification fees, consistent with CPLR Article 80.

Very truly yours,
Shawn Kerby
Assistant Deputy Counsel
