If it is not public I am entitled to it under discovery as Hamilton was GAL in
my case and her file is discoverable. Just provide me her file along with
her billing records.

Your office may not be a named party but you are the supervisory authority
over your contracted attorney. Warranty, guarantee, terms&conditions of
contracted attorney extend to you. Time sheets proper billing and errors
therein are you liability by contract law.

You are liable for discovery. Act accordingly. FOIA works just as well as it
was a state contract and paid with public funds.

You are working hard at being difficult.

Deb,

If your so called 'agency' is not party to HHD FA 4018463 S, then why did
Christine Rapillo appear in this matter before Adelman, J.?

Christine's appearance before the judge on the record in this matter pretty
much defeats your claim that you were not party......sort of failed that
argument did you not???

Now please turn over the timesheets, payments and entire file on matter of
discovery. Don't try and claim that Christine did not appear in this case.

You are all lawyers, try following the Rules of Professional Conduct, or just
try being a little bit honest.

You need AG advice to comply with discovery request. You are really
trying to hide something. This is a GAL in a pj divorce matter and you are
treating it like state secret. Very funny. Quite sad. Very Gestspo like.

The world does not revolve around you. My payment will be presented
and the documents are expected in return. Perhaps you can assign one of
the many other taxpayer funded persons in your office to fulfill this simple
FOIA request and payment?

Or is this just more Deb harassment and abuse of the populace?

Deb,

Would you please state your exemption reason for all the redactions on the
bills of Susan Hamilton?? Something very fishy about all the black
outs. Why would a 'voucher' number be redacted? Why is the billing
address redacted, this is already public information. Very strange. Not
very FOIA like. More Gestapo like.

Please be advised that this office is not required to answer questions.
However, please see my letter dated April 1, 2014 in response to your
inquiry. As I indicated the redacted information was not responsive to your
request on the Boyne case. The redactions pertain to other family cases,
not your Boyne case. The voucher number has been redacted to avoid
disclosure of these same family cases which are not the Boyne matter.

What is a voucher?

If my case is now public information, there is no reason to keep other
cases secret.

As this is a FOIA request, may I please have unredacted copies of the
billing of Susan I. Hamilton, Esq over this period 7/11 to 2/14. She is a
"#
terrible GAL and the public is entitled to see all of her billing. Whether it is
the Boyne case or the Jones case, If the Boyne information is now public,
then so can everybody else's billing by Hamilton.

Sue,

This is a FOIA request for the billing documents of one Susan I. Hamilton,
Esq. for all matters for which she was appointed to be a GAL by the Family
Court between 7/11 and 3/14.

Please provide copies, .pdf scan is fine, of the invoices and time sheets
without arbitrary and selective redaction which was previously
provided. All information contained therein is in the public domain. Names
of wards, docket numbers, vendor codes, voucher numbers, phone
numbers, vendor number etc.....are all public information.

You failed to properly respond to my previous request, as such my $5.25
can be applied to this request.

Favour of acknowledgement of this request is requested. Previous request
letter and response documents attached for your reference.

Please follow the law. Keep it simple and keep Deb's opinion out of the
process.
